As a new author it’s really hard to let readers know your book is awesome. Your opinion does not count and everyone on social media is screaming about their own book, which honestly is a bit annoying.
Also, I promise you that unveiling a bit of your soul and letting it out into the world is TERRIFYING. Are people going to care? Laugh at you? Hate you? Remember that an author is a bibliophile first. A fragile, nerdy creature thriving in libraries and anonymity.
Authors are BRAVE. They came out of the library closet to tell the world about their deepest fears and hopes.
That’s when you come into the picture.
YOU. The reader who carries that book in your bag, in your heart, the reader who connected with them. Well, let them know. Let everyone know! Because you read it and you can witness that the book is indeed awesome.
HUG YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR.
HOW? Write five star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Blog pictures of the book, quote them, let everyone know that that book is the real deal. You can really make a difference.
I know there’s a book like that in your life, maybe ten. So, what are you waiting for? ;)
