5. GIFT, RECOMMEND, AND REVIEW YOUR WRITER FRIENDS' WORKS
There really is nothing quite like word of mouth advertising.
If you love your friends' poems, novels, memoirs, essays, etc., then talk them up every chance you get.
Tell your friends, family members, colleagues, acquaintances about your friends' works.
Gift signed copies of your friends' books over the holidays.
Take Book Selfies and share those pics on social media, spreading your friends' book covers far and wide.
Share links to their poems and books on social media.
And if you do NOTHING ELSE this National Poetry Month, leave your friends' books reviews on Amazon. Stop and do this for one of your poet friends' books RIGHT NOW.
(If you've already read Words or Water, it would mean SO much to me if you took a moment to leave a brief review).
It might not seem like a big deal, but those reviews -- even brief ones -- can go a long way.
I posted the photo below from Tall Poppy Writers on my Facebook page last month as a reminder of how impactful those Amazon reviews can be for an author.
