Lyn Cote Asks Why Support Books You Love
Lyn Cote here-Authors and readers depend on each other. If authors don't write books, what will readers read? If readers don't read books, what's the point of writing a book?
The fiction market is extremely competitive. If a book doesn't sell well, the author may find it difficult or impossible to sell another book to an editor.
Think of your favorite authors, the ones you have a hard time waiting for their next book to come out. What if she/he never wrote another book?
The book industry is going through many drastic changes with the bankruptcy of Borders and the closing of many independent bookstores and the advent of ereaders like the Nook and Kindle.
Today on my blog, I posted one way readers can support the books they love-by writing reviews. Please stop by and read the simple explanation of how to do this.
Our Love Inspired romances often get no reviews listed for them on say, www.Amazon.com. Even one favorable review can help keep your favorite authors' books coming.
Can you think of other ways to support an author's books? How do you support your favorite books? How do you support your favorite books?--Lyn
