Did you know or rather were you aware of the best way to thank an author for the many hours, days, weeks, months and yes, even years they may spend writing a book doesn't cost you a single penny?
The best way to say thank you for our hard work and imagination, besides buying a copy of our books, is to leave a review. Reviews are not only hard to come by but they let the author know that you liked their story. You appreciate their hard work.
An author may sell 100 books, but only get one review or even that. There are a large number of readers that will look up book review before they even buy a book. So reviews are like gold coins to author like gold coins to a video game player. They enable us to get feedback from our readers and encourages us to go on with our work and not feel like nobody is reading it.
Take a few moments today and go to Goodreads, Amazon, Google or wherever it is that you found a book you liked and post a review. It's doesn't have to be anything long. a simple I liked it! or Great Read, or even Telling all my friends to buy this book.
