How to receive updates

Facebook seems to be a very popular place for people to seek me out, and I strongly encourage readers to like my public page HERE

However, even if you subscribe, less than 10% (even less than that) of subscribers will see my posts on their newsfeed. Facebook blocks them. Why? They want me to pay them money per post. Even then, not all my subscribers will see it. Seems crazy that you aren't allowed to see the posts from a page you subscribe to.


I'm currently having random winter giveaways on my page. I've also posted links to the Seven Years papaerback giveaway on Goodreads. Did you see that? Mayhap you didn't.


This is so frustrating for authors who want to keep in touch with readers. So here are TIPS:

1. Add my page to your interests or favorites. HOVER your mouse over the LIKED button and select "Add to Interests" and "Get notifications". On the left side of your newsfeed you'll see INTERESTS on that long menu, and once you've added my page I should appear there. From that point, you can hover your mouse over the little mechanical wheel on the left and add my page to your FAVORITES, which bumps me to the top of that lefthand menu.

Don't wait for Facebook to show you my posts; just come visit me as often as you can. I get so many readers who miss out on important announcements, cover reveals, sales, or giveaways because they didn't see the posts on their newsfeed. Most probably won't, so pretend I'm your BFF, and instead of waiting for an invitation, just swing by my place.

 2. Like, Share, Comment on my posts. You may be wondering why I'm always asking you to do this, but there is a reason! This tells the little gremlins that you are interested in my page and they'll be more likely to continue showing my posts on your newsfeed. This also helps the visibility of that post with other readers. So, SO important, because I want to share them with as many of my readers as possible, and you are a big part of helping with that.

Most importantly, subscribe to my newsletter HERE.
Those who subscribe get updates on SALES, RELEASE DATES, EARLY SNEAK PEEKS, and other important announcements or even release date changes. I don't send these frequently, only when something important is going on.

 To avoid my newsletters from going to spam (because yeah, that happens too), simply add the email in the "from" field on your confirmation (or newsletters you've received) to your whitelist (address book/contact list). Even if you've received my updates before, your server could go all blinky and start tossing me in the bad bin. That tells your email server I'm a friend. I'd still recommend checking your spam/promotional folders every so often. If I accidentally end up there, move me into the inbox before deleting the message. Deleting it in the spam folder tells your server to send my future emails there.


All this work just to stay in touch with you guys.

You can also follow me on Twitter HERE because my facebook posts will feed over. I'm not overly active on twitter, but it's a great alternative to actually seeing all my Facebook posts!
