Well, the obvious solution is to go and talk to your project manager. Explain that you don’t know what is expected of you, and you need advice in carrying out your role. It will be in everyone’s interested (including the project manager’s) to make sure that you do your job effectively, and you can’t do that if you don’t know what you are expected to do.
If your project manager can’t help you, then it’s certain that no-one in this form will be able to either.
Ideally you manager should train you, as he’ll already be aware of your caliber, that’s why you’ve been promoted. Go and talk to your manager about this and request him to assist you (Don’t ask for spoon feeding). You can start reading articles posted on various sites and blogs about project management, etc.
