Now that I've launched my platform as an author, I find a lot of my awesome twitter friends finding me on facebook.
I consider myself a straightforward person... Pretty much anything you want to know, just ask. But my facebook page is my real world. My kids photos are there. My best friends link with me and my family's all there. I'm just not sure that I want to mix that world with my new authorly world and I'm not sure my friends/family would like it either.
Don't get me wrong... It's an interesting dilemma to have. But one that makes me take pause and draw a line in the sand. I don't use a fake name, I have enough personas in my head already. I don't need to create a new one for myself. Besides, in the age of the internet, people could figure out who I am anyway. Especially if my books eventually do well.
So here's the thing...
I know I have a back log of you wonderful people knocking on my door to come in... and I don't want to turn you away.
But I think I have to.
I created an author fan page on facebook (something I didn't figure I needed since I had one for the Pendomus Chronicles).
For the sake of my friends and family, it doesn't feel right to mingle my Twitter/author world with my real world in that way.
I hope you understand and I'd love it if you'd go hang out with me on my author page. I'll still respond there and I'd love the dialogue. I'll try to keep the content different from that on Pendomus so they can both by dynamic sites own their own.
Thanks for understanding and I'll see you lovely people there!
