The best way a reader can show support to their favorite author is by leaving a positive review on Amazon or any other platforms authors are selling their books.
A short review only takes a few moments of your time and helps the author out in a big way. This also helps fellow readers decide if they would like to purchase the book.
A review can be as simple as..."I loved this book!" And remember not to spoil the book for others by revealing too many details of the story. If you retell the story in your review, it can deter possible readers from wanting to read the book if they already know how it's going to end. This also causes a potential lifetime reader from discovering another favorite author.
Authors appreciate positive reviews and love to hear from readers. So, the next time you read a great book, please pause to spread the word.

From time to time, I take a moment to reflect where I’m at in my life and where I want to go. During one of these reflections, I read about habits of successful people. You should know I define success not only as financial stability, but also about our journey as individuals and what we give to the world.
As I read, I became aware how discovering what my ten rules for success are, also complimented my journey as a writer. It takes a strong determination to reach our goals as writers. We have days where our “real” life takes over our writing times or days we feel like giving up. Or how about the days you feel as though you’re just spinning your wheels in your writing career. It’s easy to become frustrated if you feel you’re not meeting the milestones you thought you would have already reached.
A technique I developed over time to combat this was to pick out a small or big goal each day to take a step toward my ultimate goal. By breaking up the larger task into smaller chunks, it helps me feel more successful when before I know it I’m able to cross things off my list.
We all reach milestones at different paces and need to forgive ourselves if we feel we should have been farther along our writing path. Taking time out periodically to reflect also helps me keep moving through what I fondly refer to as “my writing adventures”. After all, we have to protect the reason we started down this writing path in the first place. We love to write romance with happily ever after endings.
The following are my 10 rules for success which I follow to keep myself on track.
Life has a way of pulling us off track and I have found these rules help me keep moving forward toward my goals. What are your 10 rules for success?
