1. PLEASE JOIN MY CHAMPIONS’ LIST: I promise to email you infrequently with news related to my fantasy and science fiction writing. You may unsubscribe at any time. Thank you in advance for joining us!

If you’d like to support an author’s work — including mine — there are several other actions you can take:

2. PRE-ORDER BOOKS: Pre-orders help authors hit bestseller lists, encourage bookstores to carry print copies, and help improve relationships with publishers.

3. REVIEW BOOKS: Reviews help authors’ books become better known; both the reviews themselves, but also the algorithms of sites like Amazon, depend on reviews.

4. SHARE RECOMMENDATIONS: Sharing your passion for books you love and authors you enjoy via social media and word-of-mouth helps books go viral.

Thank you for your support! Hat tip to Sebastien de Castell for the great ideas on having readers become Champions.
