A thank you to an author
Authors spend many hours writing books each year. What can you do to let an author know that their book is appreciated?
How to thank an author
Most authors do not make a high salary. Helping an author increase sales is a great way to thank them for writing the book! Sending a thank-you note is another wonderful way to thank an author.
Buy their book. Buying the book will generate revenue for them and on sites like Amazon, it will increase their sales ranking.
Write a review. This could be on Amazon, another online store or on your website. When I see many positive reviews I am much more likely to make the purchase.
Tell others about the book. This can be done in several ways. I track the books I am reading on Goodreads. My Goodreads friends can see all of the books I have read. Perhaps they will see something in my list and want to read it too.
Website Another way to tell others is by sharing what you are reading on your website (if you have one). Or, if appropriate, you could interview the author to introduce them to your audience.
Social Media Links to the books can also be shared on social media. For example, on Facebook, you could write a short summary of why you liked the book or why you think others should read it and include an Amazon link to the book.
Read it for book club One of the great things about book clubs is it exposes us to authors we may not have read otherwise.
