Marketing is nuts.

Or maybe it’s more like networking. I’ve spent a good hour ‘liking’ facebook pages in exchange for likes on my own page. Which is perfectly fine, of course, and fair. It’s just time consuming.

I’ve heard from a lot of authors that they spend a ton of time marketing and networking, and I believe it now! Phew! I have so much more work to do, but it’s a start. I’m hoping I’ll be set up with an audience come launch time (which is fast approaching as I’m going to go into overdrive and try and finish Redhaven draft #1 this week).

Alot of my networking attention has been on Facebook so far, because twitter kind of perpetuates itself. Just go on a follow spree, @ some people, retweet and play nice, and you’re all good. Facebook ends up with a lot of spam.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my fellow writers. I just dont like them pushing my longtime friends under all thier posts. I know thats what they have to do, but…  still. If you’ve found out I’ve hidden you, don’t be offended! So far it hasn’t been too bad.

ALSO – WTF! I go on my liking spree, c&p’ing the thingy I was supposed to, and then facebook is like “you do dis too much! tori. stahp. tori shahp! I temp ban you!” Wtf, facebook. I’m not a spammer. :I

But I’m gonna eat now and go to bed, and start super-writing tomorrow morning! HEE-YA!

  1. That is an interesting story, and one I have heard before. I recently wrote a paragraph on the same subject that may be of interest to you. Do I need you to press the like button on my facebook page?

  2. Oh, no! Not Facebook Jail!
