HELP AN AUTHOR

HOW YOU CAN HELP A NEW AUTHOR

1. Support small presses and indie writers by  selecting  and reading their books. Often small presses cater to a niche or special interest (many times in subjects which larger houses won’t touch because of small marketing numbers).

2. Suggest books you like to your friends and family. Readers create buzz for books. Blog about a book you loved.

3. Write a short review on Amazon or Goodreads. A few kind words can make all the difference.

4. Request your local library purchase a copy of a book you’ve enjoyed. Many libraries allow patrons to make requests online.

  2. I think there’s a lot of focus on how easy it is to publish. Not enough attention given to how rare it is to suceed financially with ANY published work.
