    I'm not sure why Google+ has such lengthy url.

    If you go to gplus.to you can shorten it. My Google+ link is

    gplus.to/callofheroes

    Capture your Google+ nickname as soon as you can.

    I'm on there:

    Just FYI, Google has a "real names" policy (there are some exceptions, but I think you have to file a request for them). I know a handful of people who have had their accounts closed down because they aren't using their real names. I mention it only because if you're going to use the site as a marketing vehicle, it would really suck to spend time building up a following and a presence there, only to have your account inactivated later. Just an FYI - proceed as desired :)

    Hey guys,

    It's really not difficult to make pages for your books. I highly recommend it, and make an author page on Facebook while you are at it.

    I had no idea they did this! I've been using Zero Angel as my online identity for everything Google and now I've changed -_-

    They do have a "nickname" option if you click on "more options" when you go to change your name and you can alter how your name is presented on your profile so the nickname is included, but they still attach your actual name. Frustrating.

    Yeah, and they were pretty proactive, at least early on, about disabling accounts that weren't following the policy. I don't know if that level of vigilance has dropped off, but I think it would still be a risk if your account came to their attention. If you became a successful presence on Google+ it seems to me you'd increase the risk that you become known to them. Also, a random person could file a complaint about the name. Any user visiting your profile can report it with a click of the mouse.

    ...very frustrated with this.

    Edit: "this" being the "real names" policy.
