"Pay No Attention to that Man Behind the Curtain"

For those of you Wizard of Oz fans...

Many authors prefer to hide behind the curtain, tucked away in a cubbyhole, writing. One of the latest trends is doing Facebook Live posts. The marketers say we should be putting our face out there. Facebook says they will give us priority if we are willing to step out from behind the proverbial curtain.

With the new release, I figured I'd give it to try. At least I had "something" to talk about. In case you missed it, this was my first attempt, chipmunk cheeks and all. Now I can say I've done it. Were the marketers right? I did get a lot of impressions - people checking it out, whether as a result of Facebook saying, "Hey, look! Live streaming video!" or because people really are interested, I couldn't tell you. I've gotten the same number of impressions on other "interesting" posts.

What do you think? Do you like seeing your favorite authors/celebs live?


Now that I know how to do it, should I schedule "live" Q&A/Facebook chat?
