Okay, I'll admit it. I've never really gotten into Facebook before I became an author. I never really had a reason to. Now that I do, I still don't "get" it. But last week, my PR Director (my wife) thought it would be a good idea to sign up to be part of a Facebook Book Release Party on a site called One More Chapter, a site that does book reviews and promotes a lot of different books. I had no idea what it entailed and was a little apprehensive about doing one.
I spoke with Jamie over at the site who walked me through what it was and what I would have to do. So I signed up for the 5-6 time slot and then plotted my plan of action. When the time came, I was a little nervous, not knowing how I would be received or what would happen. It turns out that I had a great time. The people on the site were friendly and very interested in what I had to say. They became even more interested when I told them my story.
The hour went by incredibly fast, but not before I got to chat with a bunch of friendly and interesting people, a lot of them authors just like me. I ended up getting to promote my book and gave a way a few copies as well as an Amazon gift card. It was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to do it again really soon.
Because of the release party, Jamie has honored me by spotlighting Vacant Hearts on their site starting this weekend. It's a thrill to see my work being recognized. Hopefully it will bring about more attention to my book.
It should be another fun experience, to say the least! Well, that's it for now. Good luck and happy writing.
