Facebook or die?

fbbook  I am not a Facebook guy. I don’t like Facebook. I have been fighting with my literary agent for months about putting up a Facebook page for my book. Today, I lost. Okay, I gave in because I’m tired of hearing it.

Because of my boys being born earlier than expected a lot of things got pushed aside, including the book. I’m finally catching up and trying to get things back in motion. I have the books. The books I had printed up, edited better, and promised to get self-published. That actually happened and they have been stuffed in boxes in my closet for a while. It is really weird holding a book that I wrote.

It will be really weird when my next book comes out. Yes, I wrote another one. It’s the story of what happened after all of this. And what I learned about myself and others in the process of finding a way to forgive myself for having an affair with a married woman. The release date isn’t set and I will not be using the same Editor as before. She got fired Lol Not only from my project but from the entire company. I guess I wasn’t the only one to complain. That will be fun. So once again I’m needing an Editor. Preferably someone who actually knows what they are doing this time.

I am not an author, I’m a blogger. The 2 worlds can merge beautifully with the right amount of guidance. I’m on my own and have no help from writing professionals. That’s a community I have no resources in. I’m better at blogging than I am writing a book. I don’t know why it was much harder for me but my humor and general charm got completely lost in my trying to remember and dictate fact after fact after fact. The charm in my blog is it’s my real life without me having to remember every tiny detail. And I can be funny here. I was told putting too much of my personality into my book would scare people away. I disagree but listened to the people who actually make books for a living. What the heck do I know about it anyway? No one sat down with me and said this how you write a book. Here is an outline to follow. I just hammered it out. In 6 days. Then spent months reviewing it and trying to make it make better sense.

So here I am, going through it again because my story is interesting. And it has things people can either relate to or learn from. That’s the good thing about mistakes, you or someone else can learn from them. And boy did I make a whopper of a mistake. A few months have now gone by and I get to just sit back and enjoy the silence. It’s nice to get back to my boring life. I much prefer that.

Please join my Facebook page, or don’t. I am not the one running it. To be honest I don’t know who will be running it but I am supposed to log in there and answer questions or make comments from time to time. At least they listened to me when I said I log into Facebook about once a month. So if you want this page to have stuff on it, get someone else to do it. Anything I write on there will have my name on it. Anything from the page admin man/woman/alien/whoever will say the page name. Please be aware I won’t see anything until I log in. And like I said, once a month if I remember. I have a public Facebook page for the friends and interested parties from my blog and social media accounts. There’s barely anything on it. It’s to link the blog to Facebook to get people to come read the blog. That’s why I have it. Then I have a personal/private Facebook page that no one has found (Yet) and that’s where all of my friends, family, employees and many other people are on to see my photos, my baby photos and any updates I want to share. No you can not join that page. It’s not open to anyone. You have to know me to get in there.

I hope everyone is having a great week. I’m leaving soon to run us up to the lake house. It’s time my boys see the Family compound I have created for us. My nanny is excited to pick out her room. We have a bunch of workers coming in tomorrow to help us come up with plans on how to make this into a family home. No more bachelor pad for me. I have finally sold off ALL of my other personal properties including my grandmother’s estate. I have the condo here in downtown Chicago and my lake house. That’s it. I also sold off my motorcycles and cars. I have 4 vehicles now. I realized  I don’t need all of that stuff. And I don’t want to go riding around like I’m Easy Rider anymore Lol I have sons! They need me around and not splattered on a highway somewhere in a smear of my former self.

God loves you, I love ya’ll too!
