Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

New here, first post with question about 'author' tag

Hello, I'm a new author posting here for the first time and am trying to figure out who to speak to get that shiny 'author' tag next to my name?


If this is the wrong place to post this question, please accept my apology, and could someone please point the new guy in the right direction?


Thank you in advance :smileyhappy:

Horror, thriller and suspense author. Mental Shrillness, first book, is available for NOOK in the Barnes & Noble store.

I don't know the answer, but as an author, I'd like such a tag too!  There's a thread somewhere around here with the names of hte mods.  I would imagine if you email one of them, they can help!

Re: New here, first post with question about 'author' tag

Hi Maria, unfortunately there are many authors here at B& without author tags, the only authors given the tags are authors that are invited to visit the different book clubs by the moderators of those clubs.
