Ways to support Indie authors.
- Buy directly from the author. Support Indie authors not corporations. Cut out the middle man (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.). They leave the author with little for his or her work.
- Give feedback. Authors thrive on reader feedback. Write reviews – positive or negative – about your experience with the book.
- Participate. If you enjoy an author’s work, spread the word, like his or her fan page, and participate. Indie authors have limited budgets. They thrive or wilt on word of mouth.

Writing can be easy, on a good day. Getting it published and into the hands of the world at large … well, in my view, that takes courage, day in day out!
