I have never created a Facebook author page before. It seemed too complicated. And I thought you probably needed a bunch of fans. Turns out, it’s rather simple. Sign in and go to http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php
Authors are included with artists, bands, and public figures down on the lower left. Pick that one and tell them you are a writer. Then, figure out what picture you want to represent you. Tell a little about yourself.(I’m still working on all of that. I always have trouble editing my cover pics.) Pick a FacebookURL (mine is http://www.Facebook.com/christineduncanmysteries.) and you’re in.
So what do you do there? I don’t know. It says invite all your friends, but frankly, I always find myself stalling there. I mean Really? Isn’t that just… I don’t know…invasive?????
But you can do status updates on what you’ve got out there, contests, new publications. Where you’ll be signing. I guess. It’s another forum.
So here I’ve been on Facebook for God knows how long, and I’m just figuring this all out. Sigh.
But hopefully, you my writer friends are a step ahead and can tell me what to do next.
Happy Memorial day everyone! Tell a soldier Thank You!
