I'm Back (on Facebook, that is)

I reluctantly returned to Facebook this week after an eight month hiatus. Actually, my publisher set up a new Facebook page for me, as well as a fan page for my new novel, Dance of the Innocents. When publishing a book these days, social networking is akin to breathing. Avoiding Facebook would be like avoiding the English language.

This time around, though, I'm taking a very different tack. Rather than building walls of privacy around my Facebook page, I'm making it as public as possible. What's changed is the kind of information I'm willing to share. My goal is to inspire my Facebook friends with what I've written, with the hope that they will be moved to share my work with others. As a first-time author, social networking is a natural way to spread the word.

So, by all means, put in your friend request on my Facebook page. You'll be the first to hear about my book events and other developments.
