12 Ways to Support an Indie Author

Ari has written a great article on how to help indie authors.

Most of my posts are aimed at writers and what they can do to help improve their writing and their marketing. 

However, today I want to talk about supporting other authors.  After all, we can’t expect people to support and encourage us if we don’t do the same.

Some of these may be obvious, but you’ll be surprised how many writers and author’s I’ve spoken to who don’t do any of these!

Buy Their Books

This is a pretty obvious one, a writer’s product is their book so giving them cash in order to own that product is always the best way to support an Indie author (or any author).

By purchasing the book, you are showing your support for their work.  While most authors won’t make a living from their writing, it means a lot to them that people are willing to spend hard-earned cash on something they created.
