...or rather, a credit? Yup, a WL'd book came in and it's going to time out Sunday, pm. I'm sure most of you have felt the resulting anxiety. I wasn't sure where to post, maybe the book bazaar, but I don't know anyone there. At least here I'm familiar with you all. And since it's for a romance, an erotic romance, well, you can sympathize, yes? I'm doing a mailing on Wednesday, so I can buddy the credit back to you then (thank goodness for quick DC credit).

Anyone willing to buddy me a credit?

Regina, pm me if you need anymore before then. I know how it is to be down to your last couple. :)

You guys are wonderful :)

Honestly, I was embarassed to ask but when I first approached another member (who happened to be out of credits, too) she told me to just ask on the forum. I wrestled with that for a while because I didn't want any backlash for maybe posting on the wrong forum, etc.

I'm so glad I did, though! Diane, Willa, and Jerelyn--thanks for pulling me out of a tight spot. Trish and Anne, I appreciate you "standing by".

Now I'm off to accept that book!

It's perfectly fine to post on the forums asking for a credit loan.  We all get down to those last few sometimes.

Just don't make a habit of it and it's fine. I think the rule says you can ask for a credit like this once every 2 or 3 months or something like that.  So once in a while is ok.  They just don't wnat people coming and begging for as many credits as they can get.  Which people do believe it or not.
