10 Ways to Help an Author #thewitchslist #9months #reviews
Today marks the 9 month anniversary of The Witch's List! Can you help me take the bestseller ranking chart from this:
Here are a few tips on helping authors:
Write a review! (any place online is good, but Amazon, Goodreads, BN, Smashwords–in that order of importance–are best because of the way they run online algorithms.)
Offer words of support. (It’s hard. Writers need to know someone out there is even reading them.)
Suggest their book to a book club.
Follow their blog. (hint hint. there’s a little “follow” button hiding somewhere on this page.)
Add their book(s) on Goodreads.
Follow them on social media. (even better, interact with them!)
Talk about their book with friends. (word of mouth is the most powerful promotional tool there is.)
Give their books away as gifts. (If you have a personal connection to the author you could probably have them personalized.)
Suggest your local library carry the book.(If the writer is an indie and is open to it, ask your librarian to host a book event with the author.)
Buy their book! (if you bought it online and leave a review it will have a “Verified review” tag which carries a little more credibility.)
