I've just created a page on Facebook for our Goodreads Clean Romances Group! If you're a member of Facebook, we'd love to have you join us over there, as well. Just another way to keep in touch with each other and further our support of clean, secular romances!

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid...

(Thank you for the suggestion, Kiki!)

Michelle Cameron (michellecameron) | 3 comments Hi Joyce, thank you for starting this group, it's a great idea to have a showcase for secular clean romance.

By the way, maybe you should also start a community on Google g+ for all the authors who have a g+ account. It is the second biggest social network now after Facebook, and growing every day.


message 20: by Joyce, Group Creator (new)

Joyce | 592 comments Mod
Thanks for the suggestion, Michelle. I'm still trying to figure Google+ out, but this idea gives me an incentive to learn. :-) I'll see what I can do.

message 23: by Rob. (new)

Rob. C. (robertawrites) It won't let me like the group through my page - I don't use facebook much as myself, I mostly use my page. Any suggestions on how to fix this?


message 24: by Joyce, Group Creator (new)

Joyce | 592 comments Mod
I use Facebook a lot, but that doesn't mean I know how it works. Can anybody else help Roberta?


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi Joyce! I just joined here and on Facebook. There is no "Like" button for the Facebook page. There is a "Join Group" button under the picture of the happy couple. I assume then, the moderator has to approve my request to join, as the button turns into "Cancel Request" once you click on "Join Group". Hope this helps! :)

Florence Witkop | 26 comments I just joined the Facebook group. I admit I was surprised and pleased to find it there.


message 27: by Amy (last edited Mar 30, 2013 08:09AM) (new)

Amy Keeley (safire_blue) | 89 comments Roberta, I have the same problem. Every time I try to go to a FB page, it automatically directs me to myself.

I'm thinking it's a new (to me) policy of FB's. I might have to switch back to a personal account (with the subscription option), then create a separate page to promote my books. I'll let you know if that works.


message 28: by Joyce, Group Creator (new)

Joyce | 592 comments Mod
Yes, everyone, you do have to "ask" to join the FB group. That's to try to help prevent authors who don't write clean romances from promoting their books on our page. As soon as you ask to join, either Jaimey or I will happily add you to our FB group. :-)


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

I think what Roberta and Amy are saying, is that you cannot join the group if you are a "Page" on Facebook, as opposed to be a "User/Person". As an example, I can "Like" Joyce on Facebook, but I cannot send her a friend request.


message 30: by Amy (new)

Amy Keeley (safire_blue) | 89 comments Actually, I can't even see any other FB page other than my own, so Roberta's problem may be different from mine. Not sure now.

For example, I click on the link in the original post...and I'm at my own page.

I try clicking on the link to Jaimey's site...and I'm at my own page.

I didn't like FB before. I really don't like it now. I'm hoping switching to a personal profile will make me like it better.

Just had a discussion about facebook with my critique partners this morning. I guess in order to keep my personal and business pages separate, I'm going to have to have a personal writing page rather than an author page. There just isn't enough flexibility with the author page. I can't like other pages unless I link it to my personal page as an "administrator." Erg. That means three separate pages!

message 32: by Amy (new)

Amy Keeley (safire_blue) | 89 comments Okay, so I requested that my author page get turned into a personal profile. FB agreed and now I can see the Clean Romance group on FB. Issue solved.

I've sent a request to join.

I finally ended up creating a new email account so that I could start a new facebook account. Sheesh! Just joined the group! :-)

Amy Keeley (safire_blue) | 89 comments Thanks, Joyce!

Glad to hear you got your issue resolved, Darlene. It's just...strange. Not sure why they do what they do with pages on FB.
