Dear Confused Facebook Author,
Many authors have a hard time deciding what they should share on their author Facebook pages and what they shouldn’t. I can only tell you what I do and give you some ideas. After that, you’ll have to decide what you feel you should share.
On my author page, which can be found HERE, I like to share ANYTHING that has to do with writing, which includes updates on my publishing and every once in a while a note about my editing. I always share my new blog posts. For the writers who follow me, I like to share writing tips. To create a balance, I’ve also been posting some of my (amateur) photography. You’ll also see pictures of my cats. For readers, I like to share fun facts they wouldn’t know about my books/character as well as quotes taken from my published works.
Now that you know what I do here’s a list of more ideas.
