thank an author

Why post a review? Not only does it tell other readers that it is something they might enjoy, it’s also a way of saying thanks to the author.

You don’t have to write a three-page document to review a book and you don’t need a blog. It can be as simple as saying “I loved this book” on Facebook or Twitter. Amazon is a great place for reviews, even if you didn’t buy the book from them, as well as Goodreads.com. All it takes is a few minutes.

Here’s an example:
5.0 out of 5 stars
Wonderful story with intriguing characters.

So next time to finish reading a book, take a moment to let the world know what you thought.

Eighteen-year-old Tatiana is running from her past and her star-touched powers eight years after a meteor devastates earth’s population. Her power to heal may be overshadowed by more destructive abilities. Fleeing the persecution of those like her, Tatiana seeks refuge in a small town she once visited. But this civil haven, in a world where society has broken down, is beginning to crumble. Will Tatiana flee or stay and fight for the new life she has built? Only by harnessing the very forces that haunt her can Tatiana save her friends…and herself.

Complex and Captivating
Tatiana wants more than anything to be normal. Instead, she has to deal with the loss of family, home, and belonging. Worse, her new abilities after the cataclysm frighten her more so than anyone she encounters. It will take a whole community to help Tatiana confront her fears, powers, and anger. It’s a story about accepting who you are and learning the importance of forgiving yourself.

    I will go out of my way to thank any up and coming author. It’s sort of a pat on the back for a job well done. But if the book grabs me, and knocks my socks off I’ll review it on my blog. Every author needs a pat on the back every now and then.
