Facebook and a bit

So first of all, I am still alive. If you didn't see it before, I had a baby five weeks premature. With all of his care, I can't make any guarantees about how often I will be around, but I will make an effort to keep you informed. Better Nature is being written, though slowly. I am trying very  hard to work as quickly as I can, but I am limited to nap time now. Once Better Nature comes out, there may be a gap before the next one is ready.

I know many of you have probably heard that Facebook is trying to monetize the services they offer and are only sending page updates to 9% of subscribers. This can make it hard to follow when there are things going on that you need to know about. There are some solutions,, if you are eager to keep up to date on releases, giveaways and other significant news.

1) Check my author's page on your own. I try to update regularly, though a lot of it is banter and my attempt at humor, I do share writing milestones, occasional quotes and relevant news.

2) Go to my author's page and hover over the like button until a drop down box shows up. Click "show in news feed" and all my posts will show up for you.

3) Friend me. I accept all requests to my account.

4) Subscribe to my newsletter by filling out the simple form in the side bar.

If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share with me. I know this is a pain, but I think it is only a start. Indie publishing is new and as people realize there is money to be made, I fear more and more will begin to cost. I'm sorry for the gap in my posts and hope that I can be around much more frequently.
