How do we authors support each other?
Are we heeding the cry for platform and scrambling for exposure? Are we pushing to be heard? Are we working so hard to be discovered that we’re willing to step on other authors to get there first?
How do we support each other? Can we read each other’s books? Maybe promote them on our blogs? Like their Facebook pages? Re-tweet their tweets?
How, in this crowded, noisy internet-world, can one person make a difference?
We are more than we think! As mothers, fathers, young or old, we all know people waiting, wanting, willing to hear about a new book, one that’s captured us and won’t let go.
So, what can you do today? Is there an author you can support?
I’d like to shine my little light on author Judith Post. She’s been a blogging buddy for a few years now. She writes and publishes paranormal urban fiction. Her wonderful books can be found on Goodreads, Amazon, WordPress, Facebook, Twitter (@judypost), Author Website.
Judy writes urban fantasy. Here’s the back cover blurb from one of her books, Fallen Angels:
Enoch should have let Caleb join Lucifer. Instead, he’d wrestled Caleb to the ground and held him there until the rebellion was over. He’d saved his friend from the pit, but he couldn’t save him from himself. Caleb still denounced everything Enoch held dear, and he was cast to Earth in punishment. Without the Light, Caleb wastes away, until he discovers a new life force—human blood. Worse yet, each mortal he drains is infected with his immortality, creating a race of vampires. Enoch is responsible for Caleb’s mess, so Enoch’s sent to Earth to clean it up. He walks the night, hunting and destroying vampires, trying to protect mortals. And he’ll be stuck among mortals until Caleb repents and returns Home….which doesn’t seem likely.
But when Caleb’s hordes come to town as Enoch is trying to hunt down a vicious serial killer, Enoch finds himself trapped in an eternal battle with his former friend as he tries to protect the people of Three Rivers from threats both human and not.
Reviews from Goodreads on this book:
“Love, Love, Love it!!! This book is a paranormal cross between Criminal Minds and Law and Order without the court scenes.
Enoch stopped his fellow angel Caleb when he wanted to follow Lucifer.They are both on Earth as a punishment. Caleb is using his time on earth to create vampires for his entertainment and Enoch is here to control the vampires that turn rogue,ones who feed from humans. While on a hunt for a rogue Enoch befriends a cop who is trying to catch a serial killer. This will not only bring him further into the mortal world but will ultimately lead to a battle between him and Caleb.
The author does an excellent job developing each character as the story unfolds. She drew me in with the many twists and turns to this story. I did not want to put it down! I will be waiting for her next installment!!”
“Judith reinvents the Vampire mythology and it works. A good blending of urban fantasy and crime drama. That the book picks up speed in the second half doesn’t seem unusual since Judith invests the time to put us inside Enoch, Caleb and their world. The prologue detailing a vampire’s morning had me hooked. Judith’s risk pays off by weaving a rich narrative. By book’s end we are committed to these characters and want to visit their world again.”
I’d like to dedicate this post to Judy. She’s been my inspiration- my road map as I progress down this author’s road. Judy freely shares her insights on her blog and supports other writers by re-tweeting their blog posts. She’s one of my most consistent followers and commentators. I hope you enjoy her books as much as I have.
