Best Authors on Facebook

Who is your favorite writer on Facebook? Share your recommendation in the comments section and help us build a brand new GalleyCat Reviews directory.
Our Facebook page has grown rapidly this summer and more than 100 writers have already posted to our “New Books” section. However, a number of previously published authors emailed us wondering if they could include their work as well. Our Best Authors on Facebook directory will help them–allowing both published and self-published authors to connect with readers.
We’ve started the list with a few writers from our summer reading list, but the directory is hardly comprehensive. Share your favorite author on Facebook in the comments section below and we’ll add them to our growing directory.
