Make Love to an Author

One of the things I love about writers is how supportive we are of each other. We share ideas, we proof read, we talk over plots, we give encouragement when it all seems hopeless.

One very good way to support an author you love is to leave a review. Amazon, Goodreads, Waterstones, whatever your chosen place. Good, bad or indifferent.

You see, those reviews, not just the praise but the number of them, show that the book is being read, and that’s what matters to the publishers. The more reviews a book has, the more popular it is, the more chance the author has of selling their next book.

I admit, I can be slow in leaving reviews. But if I love a book now I do make an effort to leave a review, because I know now what a difference it makes.

As the Twitter quote, so frequently shared, says ‘Make love to an author. Leave a review’
