I'm curious about your experience when it comes to promoting on Facebook. When our book first came out in November, I promoted our book at different times of day, week, and using a variety of walls. I even went so far as to buy an ad (which brought a lot of people to the page, I will admit, but none of which were interested in our novel...go figure.)
For the New Hampshire area, I've found that promoting during the week, between 9am and noon is the best time to plug your stuff. Does this hold true where you are? What are your experiences when using Facebook?
I've studied FB's own guide to using their site to promote, but I would rather hear it from actual users.
The important question is if these are translating into sales or get positive feed back.

Hit up book pages on facebook (like mine), we do contest all the time and interviews with authors to get them noticed. if you're willing to donate even one ebook copy that amkes it all the better. Feel freee to share links to your books on my page.
Beccie, if you don't mind helping a newbie, please can you answer some questions for me.
I went to your FB page and liked it. But what now? I have an author's page on FB and I really don't know what to do with it. How do I place a link to your page? What does the expression '298 talking about this' actually mean?
Can I just write on your wall? What are the protocols for that? I would be grateful for your help.
I have just read your posts and been to like your page. Though I have quite a lot of FB friends, I am still fumbling around in the dark trying to do the right thing! I would be happy if you want to become friends. My page is at https://www.facebook.com/ameliacurzon where there is also a link to my other non author page. Look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you Amelia. I have returned the favour. Interesting book you have there, by the way!
