A little thanks goes a long way

When you read a piece of writing that you admire, send a note of thanks to the author –
Sherman Alexie

 How often do you read a book and love it? And how often is it by an author that’s new to you – one that may be relatively unknown?

I ask because I increasingly find myself trying out new authors that I’ve heard about via various social media or on recommendation. Don’t get me wrong, not all of them are ‘new’ in terms of their experience and time in the craft, some are just new to me. But others are just setting off up the hill of building a following. They need all of our support and feedback.

So how often do you think about dropping writers you enjoy a line just to acknowledge that they gave you a really good experience?

It’s pretty rare these days for authors, particularly the up-and-coming ones, not to have a website with a blog or to be on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr. Why not take two minutes to connect with them and say thanks. We all appreciate a thank you or a well done – so go on, make somebody’s day.
