For Fans

Looking for a way to show your support? It’s appreciated!

Independent authors don’t have the same support system as traditionally published authors. That means you, the enthusiastic reader, are more important than ever. Here are a number of ways you can show your support:

Buy Books!

In addition to being an enjoyable addition to your bookshelf, they make great gifts, too.


If you have reading enthusiast friends, recommend a book written by an independent author. There can be distrust around self-published books, so assurance from someone who read and enjoyed it goes a long way. Consider recommending to book clubs, too. If you need question prompts to help with conversation, reach out to the author.

Write Reviews

Reviews are a quick and free way to show your support for an author, and it means EVERYTHING. If you enjoy one of my books, please consider giving a star rating and adding a review to help other readers decide whether they’ll like it too.

Places to review that would help the most:




Join my World Shapers and Patrons!

Thank you!
