Why You Should Like Me on Facebook

How do you use Facebook?

It seems I'm unique in my usage of Facebook—I use Facebook the way it was intended. I use Facebook to connect to my real life friends, online. I don't accept friend requests from people I clearly don't know, and have never met, in real life. Most people seem to use the social network as just another online meeting place, and accept friend requests from anyone who crosses their path.

I've always received a fair number of friend requests from people I don't know. Since I published my book*, that number has increased. It seems to me that if so many people want to connect to me on Facebook, then I should find a way for them to do that without violating my principles or Facebook's terms and conditions. So I created my very first personal Fan Page. If you Like it, you get to see my musings on writing and other random bits and bobs, and find out all the happenings of my books. If you're lucky, you may even get exclusive access to special offers from time to time (no promises, though)!

I update sporadically, with whatever takes my fancy at the time. If that suits you just fine, and if you want to connect with me, go check it out: http://www.facebook.com/writergraham/.

Maybe you'll be disappointed. Maybe you won't. Go on—dip your feet in, and find out!

* A Petition to Magic is my fantasy short story, about a wizard who doesn't want to be a wizard any more. It's available at Smashwords, Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble. Google it, download the free sample, and see if you like it!
