Two years ago this February, I set up the page www.facebook.com/jsbaileywrites. Because authors are supposed to have Facebook pages, right? I wasn't sure what would happen. I think that in the beginning I assumed that thousands of people would be clambering to "like" this page despite the fact that I was a new author whom no one had ever heard of.
But it wasn't like that at all. The first people to join
me here were friends and family. People whom I know personally. But
then something began to happen. Slowly, over time, new people began
showing up. Some of them were bloggers. Some of them were other authors.
Some of them were people who enjoyed their "journey" through the portal
so much that they wanted to drop on by to see what else I might have in
store for them.
Now there are 424 of us here. I've gotten to
know some of you personally, and it's been great having your support in
my own "journey" of writing. You all are wonderful people, and I thank
you for being here.
When we reach Lucky Number 500, I would
like to show my appreciation for you all by giving away a copy of both
The Land Beyond the Portal and Vapors, my two published works. But ONLY
when we reach 500. Do you know what this means? It means I am putting
you to work. That's right. In order to get to 500, I need YOU to share
this page (www.facebook.com/jsbaileywrites) with your fellow bookworms encouraging them to join. Share it
on Facebook. Share it on Twitter, Goodreads, and Blogger. You can even
share it in your company break room. Think you can do it? (It might help
to remind your fellow bookworms that liking the page will vastly
increase their odds of winning said books.)
