Facebook Pages for Readers

Reading Is An Expression Of Life

I liked the photo and I like the Facebook page, I Love Reading, so I shared this post.
I shared it on my author J.M. Northup Facebook page, but ultimately, I decided to share the post on my blog.  I just felt like it was something that needed more attention.

After that, I started to think about how difficult it is to be a self-published writer.
There are a lot of great tools out there to allow a writer to publish, but not every author is able to pay for advertisement.  Social networking is the way to address a larger audience and to try to get your work known.  Unfortunately, that means there are times that you will share your posts about your work without prior authorization or knowledge from the page owner.
It feels bad to have to solicit your work this way.  I personally prefer to have the "okay" from the page owner, but in most cases, there isn't any way to contact them.  This sucks, but I don't know any way around it.  If you do, I am all ears!
With that being said, there are some great pages that are designed to help writers reach a larger audience and to share their work.  There are amazing sights that encourage the sharing of literature and who's pages are very informational, inspiring, and entertaining.
In appreciation of these pages and Facebook, I decided to do a blog that shared some of these awesome connections with you:
