Finally got around to making a "Fan" page on FB......

Alright, I had been holding off on this for various reasons.

To start, the whole concept of me having "Fans" always seemed very presumptuous. I always imagined having some watershed event that I could point to and say, "There, that's when I arrived". I came to the realization that I should already have had this setup, so that if I do manage to capture lightning in a bottle and strike it big, Its there to capitalize on the momentum.

I know the chances of my becoming a best-selling author are slim, I know that the chances of enough people becoming interested in my writing to need to obscure the eccentricities available on my personal page from them is even more remote.

Of course, like most of my promotional work so far, it's free, and it's not taking up space that more deserving writers should have on a webserver, so what the hell, right?

So, the site can be found here- Christopher Godsoe-Author

I hope you take a moment to "Like" it if you are at all interested in hearing about my writing. In time I will segway away from posting updates on my personal pages from my blogs and will post them on the "Like" page only.

So, I hope you decide to join my fan page, it will soon be the best way to hear about all of the really interesting stuff I have in the works. From time to time I will host contests with some of my larger launches, and games, images, and everything that you will only see there.

'til next time ;-)


  1. I am thinking of trying to make a FB fan page for my book. Is that advisable or should I do a fan page for being an Author? Why did you choose to do it this way?

  2. Erin,

    I decided to set it up as an author page because I've read alot about self promotion ideas and they all agreed that its better to setup your online presence like a funnel-to setup one or two main sites and use things like twitter, etc. to "funnel" people to one central location so that you only really have to create a single comprehensive take on your work, and to only have one place for announcements.

    If you only have to update once and the links disseminate from there to Facebook, twitter, etc., then it makes it easier and you have more control over your messages, and it made alot of sense to me when i read it so ive tried to keep that lesson with me going forward.

    So rather than make seperate pages for each of my projects, I settled on just the author page and will be posting all of my links that normally would go to my personal page there. Plus it has the added benefit of not having to worry so much about censoring the content for the younger and more impressionable friends on my personal page.

    There are certainky plenty of different schools of thought, and I'm still very new at this. So far its working for me, but I can totally see why a page for your book would make sense too.

    Whichever way you decide to ggo, let me know which one it is so I can be one of the first to "Like" it :-).

    Thanks again for checking out my page Erin!
