Life, for it to be as good as it can possibly be, needs to include a few things. One of them is a healthy source of support and encouragement. Without it, we wither away. With the wrong source, we turn bitter and still wither away. For some of us, encouragement is a constant need. People like me need to know we're helpful, useful, doing some kind of good for someone. Otherwise, people like me feel like, "What's the point to this life, anyway?" It took such a long time for me to figure out how to make social media work for me instead of against me. Disclaimer: If you don't want to read a post written from a Christian perspective, then just skip this one. But then you won't know more about me. And you might want to know how you can help other writers and encourage them. This is me, but all authors need encouragement and support.
My Worries Add Up So I Beat Them Back Down
I worry about...
So What Does That Have To Do With You?
Well, there are ways you can encourage your favorite authors. I'll list a few from an awesome posters people shared on IG. (These work well for musicians and artists, too, but you'll need to change the places where you leave reviews and connect with them.)
Ways To Help Your Favorite Author:
I'd also like to encourage you to follow a couple of other folks. I tried to do a search for the original posts about how to support authors. This is where my search led. I found this post about "Feeding" the Authors at MK Turner's website. And the closest I could get to the Amazon info poster was Killarney Traynor's Twitter profile. She also has a blog you can check out. So you can use the links to check out those folks.
