Are you on Facebook? Of course you're on Facebook. We're on Facebook too, and we want to be friends.

This is where you find us: Facebook / LA Times Jacket Copy. Technically, because we are a page and not a single human being, I think we would like you to like us, the newer way of asking you to be our fan.

What will you find on our page? The latest is a gallery of Los Angeles writers who've been photographed by the L.A. Times. Ray Bradbury waxing either visionary, nostalgic or both at Clifton's Cafeteria; Boing Boing's Mark Frauenfelder playing a cigar-box ukulele of his own making; portraits of Bret Easton Ellis, James Ellroy, Janet Fitch. There's more than that, and more to come.

We also are posting links to the book reviews and features that run on Sundays, and in the daily paper as well. Sometimes Jacket Copy posts pop up on Facebook too.

We've got more plans, but first of all, join us. We'd be delighted to hear what you think of all of this, about what you're reading and on what comes next.
