A fast and FREE way to help out your favorite author

Happy Hump Day, peeps!

I hope you are doing well and staying dry. We've had nothing but drizzle and wind in my parts all morning long. Blegh!

Anywhoo... On to the topic at hand, which is helping your favorite authors become more visible.

Yeah, baby. What author doesn't want that? I can't think of any. Lol!

Believe it or not, it's really quite easy to help your favorite struggling (or successful) author friend out, and that's by "liking" and "tagging" their book's Amazon page.

What exactly does this mean, you ask? Well, I'm gonna tell you :)

When you visit a book's page on Amazon you will find a "Like" button directly below the book's title and to the right of the "reviews" link. Clicking this button makes the book more visible when others go searching for similar books.

Likewise, if you scroll down the page to just below the review section, you will see a series of boxes beneath the title "Tags Customers Associate With This Product." Again, by clicking these tags you make the book more visible and essentially "bump it up" in the Amazon search engine.

The cool thing about this is that you can do both things for FREE. That's right. If you've already read the book (Thanks, btw!) then this action only takes a few extra seconds and it's a huge help. But, if you haven't had a chance to read it yet, and you still want to help your author friend out, this is a fabu way to do so and will make him/her very happy. And thankful. And a bunch of other warm and squishy type things. Lol!

Because I'm feeling shameless today, I'm going to go ahead and include the link to my newest release, Cursing Athena. Mad love to anyone who takes a few extra moments out of their busy day to help a girl out. Mwah!!!!!!
