Support Your Local Author

Have you been enjoying all of these Inkspirational suggestions for great books to read? I know my To Be Read pile is growing daily!!!

We interrupt this series of very helpful blog entries for a brief advertisement. These days, it is easier than ever to help your favorite author so that she can continue to write those wonderful books you love.

Write a review!!! There are lot of ways to do this, but since the overwhelming majority of my reading is now done on my Kindle, my favorite way is to continue past THE END and write a review before I close the book.

Amazon Review for blog

You don’t have to pretend to like the book and give it a five star review, although you should always be kind. Give it three stars, and just say, I learned a lot. (About how not to write a book?) But, if you do love it, give the future readers some great reasons why.

One tip- No Spoilers. Don’t tell how it ends, or even very much about the specifics. Just say, plenty of action, plot twists, had me on the edge of my seat,  – – you get the idea.

This week, I even got a chance to answer a question generated by my review. The reader wanted to know if this book was a “Christian” book, or was it just about faith in general. Woo-hoo! I said,”Yes, it is a Christian book, but the theology doesn’t overwhelm you.” I loved helping the author get her message out!

So, read, read, read, and then review. Your favorite local author will love you for it.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled blog. Enjoy the wonderful Inkspers!
