The first day of November brings us our first book inspired holiday. Sunday was Author’s Day. This holiday was created with the intention to bring awareness to American authors in the early 1900s by Nellie Verne Burt McPherson. Nellie was the president of the Bement, Illinois Women’s Club, teacher, and an avid reader throughout her life. I challenge you to broaden this awareness to include independent authors. As an independent author and musician, one of the most touching thing a fan could do for me is to share their appreciation of my art in the form of a review.
Leaving a review for an author allows their books to show up in more searches online. In return, this could inspire more people to become fans. Plus it allows us to hear your point of view which inspire future works.
On Saturday, the tables will turn and we have a holiday for the readers. Book Lovers Day can be celebrated in a variety of ways. Here are some ideas.
- Reread your favorite book
- Dress as a favorite character from a book
- Make a book recommendation to a friend
- Go support your local bookstore or visit your local library
I’m so grateful to all my rockstar fans who support my stories. If you’d like to leave a review of my books or purchase one, click the book covers. Thank you for letting me imagine you a story.
