Tribulations of a newbie author

I see others who blog almost daily - this is my first for about six weeks!  The big challenge now is to tell the reading world about my opus.  Social media is apparently the answer.  I'm told there are over six billion users of Facebook and now I'm one of them, trying find some friends to whom I can subtly hint that they would enjoy the adventures of Charlie Kikira.  According to Google Analytics I have visitors to this website from far afield as one each from Kazakstan and South Africa. Anyway, if you haven't read about the said Charlie - please do - I'm desperate for reviews, good or bad!  Family and friends seem to have enjoyed him although I have to wonder if they just don't what to depress me!
