Promos of Non-SLP Works

#1
Hello!

I am a new member, and would like to clarify whether it's permissible to post updates and promos for non-SLP works on this site, in the forum or on one's user profile.

Do you mean post works which SLP haven't published?

We have no problem with that at all. The majority of works here are more for practice and thought exercise than stuff that SLP has published.

I think the poster also means if one can advertise AH books not published by SLP on the forum somehow?

There is a forum for discussion of non-SLP published work, as long as discussion of those works is at least an attempt at a discussion rather than a posted-once-and-never-replied-to-again advertisement for a book, I think it's fine to say 'you can buy this here'.

This is partly what I was looking for; mainly I was wondering if there's a way to link the updates I regularly post on Twitter, Wordpress and Unbound.co.uk to a forum on this site, so that my work(s) can be discussed and critiqued as well as spread to a wider audience.

You could create a signature, such as mine which links to my blog?

That is to somethibg i count on.
I notice on your PB site re the Falklands for today's entry, you refer to the SAS capture of Mount Kent.

Um, no. Seriously, no.

No 2 Troop, K Company, 42 Commando captured it. Officer commanding said unit was one Lt David Flin, RM.

The SAS scouted it out, and reported Mount Kent was empty, and so the troops (some 35 strong, plus a few extra we dragged along) were helicoptered in. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that there was a half-battalion (maybe 300-400) Argentine troops actually there.

The SAS did not capture it. They reported it empty. It wasn't. 42 Commando captured it, despite the useless SAS recon. When we moved forward for the assault on Mount Harriet later, the SAS then occupied Mount Kent.

The SAS PR machine, of course, was always working overtime.

Take my word for it, the SAS did not capture Mount Kent. I should know. I was there when it was taken.

Mutter mutter mutter.

Bloody Special Author Service, useless waste of space.

My bad, i use different sources to get as much of events of a day in one post, seems some of them sins the war started are of to what happen in real life, thanks for noticing it and telling me it.

But the Wikipedia article says:

The first engagement during the Battle of Mount Kent occurred during the night of the 29th to the 30th May 1982 when Captain Andrés Ferrero's 3rd Assault Section from 602 Commando Company ran into Air Troop from D Squadron, 22nd Special Air Service on the slopes of Mount Kent, suffering one badly wounded (First-Sergeant Raimundo Viltes) and admittedly abandoning much equipment much to the fury of Major Aldo Rico, commander of 602 Commando Company.[9] The British took control of the situation, but at the cost of two badly wounded SAS troopers.

Which rather suggests that, amazingly, Wikipedia is not entirely reliable.

I was there. That Wiki entry is wrong. Of course, that then moves into the question of history as it happened, history as it got reported, and history as it got remembered.

The SAS, having done their recon (badly) got taken back to a nice warm place where they could prep for another recon (probably equally badly) and - importantly - file their reports which made their way into the system. Meanwhile, No 2 Troop, K Company, 42 Commando - the guys who actually did the heavy lifting on Mount Kent, were continuing to slog their way through the god-awful peat bog of that God-forsaken place, preparatory to doing patrolling around Mount Harriet, prior to an assault against it. We were rather too busy to file official reports.

Not that I'm bitter, you understand.

Thanks for your time to spot it and correct the mistake.

I do hope the rest is following the line as how the Falklands War happened.

No idea. I can talk about Mount Kent and Mount Harriet.

You're not really going into the descriptive parts of it, so the general: "What's it like to walk about a peat bog carrying 100+ lbs of equipment with the wind blowing straight off an Antarctic winter?" question, which I can comment on isn't that relevant. (Amazingly, the answer to my rhetorical question is that it's not as much fun as you might think it is. Marine Jackson in particular, who had got married the day before we set off, expressed the view that, on balance, given a choice between being on honeymoon in the West Indies with his pretty new wife, or being Down South, well, he came to the conclusion it wasn't a close decision).

Air war, naval stuff, bits I had nothing to do with, I know no more than anyone else.

Well, still thanks for taking time to respond and having read it, it means much to me.

No problem. Now you've got the fun choice of selecting between History as it was, and History as it has been recorded.

It's actually a tricky one. Put it in as it was, and you'll get people saying: "You're wrong. Wikipedia says you're wrong." Put it in as it's been recorded and accepted, and you're knowingly continuing a falsehood. You're in a no-win situation.

Good luck.

I think that many people believe what is in Wikipedia must be truer than what is written in other places by people who know what they write, but that is what i think, when i create something i try to find as many sources as i can, but some times even they are wrong.
