My original Facebook page will be fading away soon.... and I have a brand new Facebook page to share. But first, of course, I have a story. (Otherwise, this would be a really short blog post!) My story begins a couple of months ago, when I decided to do a "boost" or Facebook ad campaign to promote one of my Olivia Outlaw Books. I did the post, clicked to boost it, it started boosting and then - the boost was rejected.
A few days ago, I decided to try again, because I've run FB ads before and found them a great way to promote books for a reasonable cost. Again, it got rejected and this time I got messages about "explicit content" and violating FB ad policies.
Well, okay, perhaps Facebook has hangups about Male/Male Romance and I was trying to publicize one of my Olivia Outlaw books. So, I tried again, with three - count 'em THREE- of the books from my Mary Anne Graham "Forever" series. Nada. The same result. I beat my head against the brick wall, and grabbed my computer guy hubby and slammed his face against it for a while. More nada and managed to royally perturb computer guy hubby who recalled anew his wife's technical stupidity.
While hubby cooked breakfast - yum- I had a "light bulb" moment. Maybe I needed to do a full reboot. After all, my original Facebook was created before FB had some of the tools to help authors create pages. So, I slogged off to create an AUTHOR page. Added each book series to PHOTOS and plan to give each book/series its own FB page. (It'll take a while, people, I'm on the last book in my Seducing the Guardian Series and hope to publish soon).
For now, though, I have a brand new author page and am running a promo of my "shop now" button which connects to my list of books on this blog. If you've wandered over here from that shop now button/promo - HI! *waves*
Be sure to check out the new FB page and give it a like while you're there!!
