I don’t do Facebook games

Since the number of requests that I receive to participate in various Facebook games seems to be going up, I thought I’d take a brief moment to make my position of Facebook games unequivocally clear:

I don’t do Facebook games.

This is nothing personal. But if you were to take a look at my schedule, you’d have a better idea why: I have a fulltime day job. I get home from work in the evenings, spend time with the family and then when they go to bed, I begin my night job, as a professional science fiction writer. Where there are small stretches of free time, I read. I no longer have time to watch TV or see a movie, let alone spend hours playing games in Facebook.

So, if you are inviting people to join your Mafia War, or your Social Empire, or your barn-raising in Farmville, do me a small favor and leave me off the list. It would be most appreciated.
