How to Promote Your Favorite Author

BUY & READ HIS OR HER BOOKS

Buy and read The Sandmann’s Journal. It is available digitally on all eReader platforms including Amazon, Scribd, Barnes & Noble or GoRead. Start with volume one and begin the journey. Read the entire book. You can also purchase my other books. Or you can subscribe to my blog and follow me on social media.

WRITE A REVIEW

When you’ve read one of my books, kindly or unkindly, write a review in the comment section of the online page on the link. Whether positive or negative your feedback is valuable to me. Go on Amazon and let people know what you think about the book. You can leave a review on any platform of your choice.

GIVE MY BOOK AS A GIFT

Give my book to your friend or loved one and ask them to read it. You can purchase the physical copy of any of my books directly through my website, www.freddywill.com. Everyone can then give or give it to your friends, and family as a gift. You can also download the books and do the same. The point is, books make great gifts so let your next gift be a book. 

TELL SEVERAL PEOPLE

Tell people. Pass on the word about that great book you just read. Do you know the author? What is the book about? How much does it cost? Why you think they should get a copy and read it. Word of mouth is powerful, use it positively.

READ MY BOOKS OUT LOUD IN YOUR BOOK CLUB

Read the book aloud in your book club – We live in an information age. Even though it’s easier to get information off social media and Google, it is also better to go the old fashioned route. Read a book, ponder on the ideas, decide if you agree or disagree, spark an intellectual debate and move to make changes. There are book clubs all over the place, most of them are free to join, and you will meet good people there. The library is an excellent place to visit.

RECOMMEND ON GOODREADS

Recommend my books on GoodReads. That is a great way to support me as an author. Simply recommend on www.goodreads.com. GoodReads is a virtual library, you just create a profile that allows you to have access to an extensive database filled with millions of books. Search for your author of choice and recommend his or her book for others to read. You can also write a review. You should find all of my books.

REQUEST AT YOUR LIBRARY

When you support your favorite author you go to your national library and make a request for them to obtain his books. In my case, I’ve been writing 24/7 ish since the mid-nineties, and I aim to have an entire section in the book store or library. Okay, okay, it’s an exaggeration. Support my work tho, a lot of what I do is for you.

PROMOTE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Promote your favorite author on your social media. This one is self-explanatory. Take about the topics your author writes about. Share their book cover and a link to an online bookstore where their book is available. Bring up discussions about the subjects that your author has written about. All the knowledge to come through you.

SHARE PHOTOS OF YOURSELF HOLDING YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR’S BOOK

We live in the information age. When you want to make a change in the world, you have to read – a lot! You have to access intellectual materials from the primary source and understand it even if you do not agree. When you find an author who has said something that you would like others to know, take a picture of yourself with a copy of her or his book and share it.

WRITE A LETTER TO YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR

Most writers are very easygoing and down to earth people. Regardless of how you feel about their perspective on issues that you hold dear, keep in mind that most authors love to have a friendly debate or a good exchange of information. If you feel strongly about something they’ve written, or you don’t agree instead of judging the author, write them a letter and tell them how you feel and wait for their response. For me, you can always reach me at writers@freddywill.com
