Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook

I will eat your time and social skills…. Thats why I look so cheery!

Well technically it ate six hours of my day, however I have always wanted to use that headline in some sort of post.

I am not per-se a technophobe, you are more likely to find me sorting out the I.T issues.

Today, I felt all the frustration and howls of anguish that Mr TTWI usually emits. Because some stuff just doesn’t work like it ‘s supposed to. I have been mired in forums and focus groups, trying to work out why I can’t get my Facebook Author page to link into everything as I don’t want to connect it to my personal profile.

One more “unknown error” and I may have just given up on the self-publishing DIY platform idea altogether.

It is now working, but as the saying goes “along with freedom comes great responsibility” and that’s what this self-publishing lark is all about, I guess. We get to take creative ownership of our books and our brand all at once and that includes crocodile wrestling social media into submission.

Of course you could employ someone to do all this stuff for you. Just the same way that you could probably get someone to write the book via a ghostwriter if you’ve got enough cash…

But where would be the fun in that?

P.S – So if you have the time, please check out my lovely new Facebook author page and feel free to like it. It’s just my own little like at the moment and it feels a bit lonely…. As an added horror bonus  – you get to see what I look like.


  1. YaY! Yeah, my Facebook page turned out to be full of testosterone. It only goes to prove that I am a male, and that I am a writer forever searching for ideas; even if I don’t use all of them.

    Glad to hear you got it working. Sometimes, a single step back will clear away the clouds.
