Just wanted to bring you up to date on a couple of social meeja developments round these parts.
First of all, with many thanks to everyone who took the time to leave comments, I have no chosen a new design for this website. It was the most popular one, as voted for by you. Click here to see what it looks like – complete with obligatory Latin nonsense. We will be working hard to get this up and running (and in English) as quickly as we can.
Secondly, I now have a Facebook Author Page – as opposed my, um, regular person Facebook page. This is where I will be posting all book-related stuff on Facebook from now on, which will allow me to keep my ordinary Facebook page for videos of cute kittens sitting on record players, etc. If you have a moment, please go to the new page and click “Like”. Being an author I suffer acutely from low self-esteem issues and desperately need validation from the rest of you people. Also I have promised to give away one of my few remaining galleys of A GOOD AMERICAN to a lucky winner once we hit 100 “Likes”. Yes, people, that is how desperate I am.
And, of course, you can always follow my random musings on twitter – which is actually where I spend most of my time these days my social media outlet of choice. You can see the sort of drivel I post there in the column on the right hand side of this page.
I am also trying to find out more about tumblr, because I am sure that if I put my mind to it I could spend even more time doing this stuff and not, you know, actually writing my new book. (I’m hoping my editor doesn’t read this blog.) Anyway, watch this space, and in the meantime, come on in and join the fun. The water’s lovely.
[Update on the update]
PS: Oh, and I almost forgot – I’m on Goodreads, too. If you haven’t joined yet, you should. It’s basically Facebook for book lovers. There are great discussions and I love to see what other people are reading. It’s like wandering through someone’s house and staring at their bookshelves. Which we all do anyway, right? Right? Oh.
Love the new site (even though the one I picked didn’t win, haha). And I’ll check out the FB page… meanwhile, what no Stumbleupon or LinkedIn…? Where will the madness end??? 🙂
That’s just it – you have to draw a line somewhere. Think this will be about it for me. I do have something approximating a life, as well. And then there is that next book…
Right-o, old chap. I’m off to like your author page on Facebook. You had me at drivel. 🙂
