Supporting Other Writers – My Blogging Inspiration #MFRWAuthor
For the #MFRWAuthor 52-Week Blog hop, this week, week 41 is my blogging inspiration.
When I first started my blog in April of last year, I wanted a website that not only displayed my own books but also put forward the books and the authors that I’ve loved over the years. Because every book I’ve ever read, whether I’ve hated it or more often loved it, influenced me and my writing. The best way I could pay them back was to pay respect to them on my blog.
That developed naturally into author and book promotions. The reason why I have so many guest authors and promo spots on my blog is that every book deserves a chance and the more people who can view it on social media and share it with their friends, the better success a writer can have with their release.
Book promotions have put me in contact with books that I may not have read and fallen in love with. There are ARC’s that I’ve absolutely loved when I read them and the least I can do is promote a book that I’ve personally read and loved.
Also, hosting a promotion is a great way to get to know writers. We all have different experiences, but advice is the most precious commodity in our business, and the best way to get to know other authors is to support them and their writing. I appreciate when anyone hosts me and displays one of my books on their blog and shares it with their social media followers. I will follow them on social media and support them as much as possible and they do the same for me.
So thanks, to all of you writers out there. I really appreciate everything you do.
Thank you for stopping by!
