8 Ways to Help Your Favorite Author*
→ You’ve got a book out, and you want to tell your friends and fans how they can help.
→ Or you have friends who are authors, and you want to see them succeed.
→ Or you have favorite authors whom you’ve never even met, yet you still want to help their books find readers.
For all of those situations, here are a few simple things that can make a world of difference to an author:
1. Amazon reviews. If you have positive things to say about a book, go ahead and say them! Don’t be false; don’t rave about a book you don’t really like. But write a good review if you can. Reviews are a powerful tool on Amazon that can make a big difference in an author’s sales.
2. Reviews on other retail sites. Barnes & Noble, the Apple store, Kobo, Smashwords… it helps to leave good reviews on any of the retail sites you visit.
3. Amazon “Like” button. See that little “thumbs up” icon on the Amazon page, right below the title and author? Click it!
