What should I share on my Facebook page?

Following on from last weeks post about why I have a Facebook page, I thought I’d continue with some ideas of what to share on your Facebook page.

As an unpublished author, we don’t have the author events or book snippets that published authors have to share, or the sales pitches for our books.  So, what do we share?

It’s quite simple, share your journey. People respond to other people’s stories, so share that. This could include updates on how your writing is going, requests for help with ideas or suggestions for names of characters, writing tips, books and authors that inspire you, and anything else relating to your journey.

With my page, I also have a feed from my blogs. On my Melissa Writes page, I have a feed from all my writing blogs, but on my other pages its just a feed from the blog relevant to the page.

Sharing my journey and asking for help with my ideas will also generate an ownership of my stories, so they want to buy the books. Recently I was writing a story for 12×12 in 12 and posted here and on my page asking for ideas on a number of things. Some people reading and commenting on these posts started getting excited about my story and want to read it!

So, with your Facebook page, share your story and ask for help from your followers. If they are following your page, they want to know your story and support you in your journey.
