~~~~~~ How to Help an Indie ~~~~~~
Indie writers work inside of a bubble - their imaginations - so unless you tell them what they miss in their writings they'll never know. Indies will listen to your feed back because it helps them to be better at their craft; to be better story tellers.
If you have an observation about my writing then please let me know. Click the "Have your say" button and get in touch. I'll always say thanks.
Indies don't have the resources to carpet bomb a market, or to dress up a book shop with banners and stands. We rely on satisfied readers. So if you've read a good story, why not go back to the retailer site and leave a comment or two for other readers to see?
If you've read one of mine, then please do. You'll earn my gratitude, and the thanks of other readers as well.
Word of Mouth
Even if you don't like writing reviews you can still help an Indie. If you've just finished a good read, tell a friend, Tweet it, or post the book's link on your Facebook page.
Then tell the author. You have no idea how encouraging that is.
