Hi, I have a question about getting a credit to the person that has referred me to this site.  It was by word of mouth but I don't remember here name.  I didn't learn about the referral program until after the fact.  Is there any way that she can still receive a credit?  Thanks Melita in Vancouver

To give someone the referral credit, you have to know either their PBS nickname or the email they use for PBS emails.  As far as I know, unless you know one of those two things, there is no way to give them the credit.  Also, you have to have posted your first 10 books for them to receive the credit.

Hope that helps.

Only if you can figure out who it was.  If you can, I believe you can send a message to R&R ("contact us" link at the bottom of the page) and ask that she be recognized as referring you.

Yes, the person who was referred needs to make the contact with R&R if she has already joined and did not make the referral at that time. Then she needs to use either the referrers PBS Nickname or PBS e-mail or full name & city and state when she contacts them.
