First let me assure you that all writers need your help, whether they’re world-famous like Stephen King, well-known in the Christian writing community like Terri Blackstock and Brandilynn Collins, or a relatively unknown writer like ME!
There are so many books and writers out there that any one book or writer can get lost in the avalanche.
So exactly how can you help your favorite writer (like ME)?
First, of course, is to buy their books.
Second, talk about their books with other people. Word of mouth is still the best way to sell books. And, of course, word of mouth includes talking about them on your social media accounts.
Third is to leave positive reviews at various online bookstores (Amazon and Barnes & Nobles and others) and other sites that encourage that like GOODREADS.COM If you don’t know what Goodreads is, it’s a huge online site for book lovers with lots of different activities. Definitely worth your time if you love reading.
Fourth is to go to your local library and request a book or books by your favorite writers. Most libraries will take your request into consideration and often purchase them. That not only helps the writer by a book purchase but will introduce them to other readers by having the book available in that library.
Fifth is to connect with your favorite writer on one of your social media sites. We love to hear from people who love our books. It’s a real morale boost when someone tells you that they enjoy your hard work.
So thanks to all of you who support and encourage me as a writer and a person!
UNTIL NEXT TIME…GOD BLESS & GOOD READING!
