Show some love

Posted by Raeann Blake (Author) on July 7, 2012

Love Your AuthorsGood Saturday morning!! Want to show authors you like some love? Go to each book page for a book you enjoyed and first click the “Like” button at the top of the page right under the book title. You can also hover over the “Like” button and choose to share the page on FB, Twitter, Pintrest, or by Email.

Next, scroll way down towards the bottom and you will find a section called “Tags Customers Associate with This Product”. Click the checkbox beside each tag that you see that you agree with, or add your own (you can choose or add a maximum of 15 tags that you like).

Next scroll back up a little and add a Review. It can be as long or short as you want along with your rating. See other reviews that you agree with or that were helpful to you in making your own decision to buy the book? Click the “Yes” button where it says “Was this review helpful to you?” If it wasn’t or you disagree, you can click the “No” button. You can also comment on a review although I personally feel that you should not comment on another’s review. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and nothing will be accomplished by engaging in a debate over their opinion.

The “Likes”, “Tags”, and “Reviews” all help in ratings, rankings in search results, and in helping other readers make their decisions about whether or not to pick up their own copy. And the reviews especially, good or bad, help authors know where they’re on track and where they aren’t. Good reviews provide us with that affirmation that keeps us going; bad ones provide us with learning tools and road maps on what we can do better.

You can also access the Author’s bio page by clicking on his or her name underneath the title.  On this page you will find another set of “Like” and “Share” buttons on the right side of the page.

Authors give you their hearts through their words. So when you have some time, tell them how their doing.

Have a great weekend!
