    I recently created an author page and I'm trying to figure out the best way to generate a buzz about it. If anyone wants to look at my page and offer suggestions, feel free. It's at https://www.facebook.com/authorJRThompson/

    How would you go about making a friend? It's about making connections to develop relationships. So when friends know you or see your name, they get interested. Posting things other than about your book/s is highly important. If you post only and often about your writings, you will scare people off.

    One other thing that is important is joining Christian writing groups on FB. One of our long-time members (who still drops by on occasion, Jacksgirl) started Christian Indie Authors (CIA). She is Samantha Fury there. There is another Christian Indie Authors that is good as well. Neither of these will allow you to post about your book, though. However, there are a couple of off-shoot groups from them where you can post about your books. There are also numerous other Christian writers' groups. Be sure to read the description of the group to know whether or not they allow book postings.

    Creating a blog is a great way to get Facebook page likes. If you can drive people to your blog and they like your content they are very likely to like your page. Firebaptized Publishing is very experienced with helping authors get Facebook page likes since all of our author's receive great marketing. If you have a new manuscript or even one that is already published and you hold all the rights feel free to submit it to us at www.firebaptizedpublishing.com

    I checked out the website. It seems to be new with a few books written by the publisher.

    Yes Firebaptized Publishing is relatively new company however we have years of experience. We do feature some books from the publisher who is a best-selling author on our home page, however we have worked with several satisfied authors.
