Agent Nathan Bransford has proclaimed this Writer Appreciation Week. What a wonderful idea! I like to email or write an author when I really love their work and I encourage you to do the same.
There are so many ways you can do this. Every author has a blog, facebook page, twitter account, or website. You could also leave comments on review sites and amazon. Find a youtube video about their book and comment. Another way is to buy a new book. Authors only make money when the books sell. Share the love and let the authors know just how much you appreciate all the blood, sweat and tears they put into their work. Writers deal with so much rejection, they need the positive once in awhile.
So take a moment, read a book, make an author's day. . .it's just that easy!
