Whether you’re a fan, friend, or family member, there are several cost-free things you can do to support the writer in your life and it will still mean a lot to them (and their success).
Whether you’re a fan, friend, or family member, the obvious way to support the writer in your life is to buy their book(s), if they’ve written any. Think of it as an investment in your relationship with them and in their future. When you buy a book, you are literally helping that writer pay their bills and buy food.
A writer spends months – even years – writing, editing, formatting, re-editing … All of that to create one tiny book that will most likely get lost in the sea of other books written by other authors. It’s a gamble a writer takes; time invested vs. potential income. It often takes a few rolls of the dice – several books – before an author’s name starts to get noticed. Even if a writer is producing articles, short stories, or other written material, those are often overlooked, the pay is usually low, and the reward is, well … It’s like beauty; it’s in the eye of the beholder.
