You know how the watched pot never boils? Well, I’ve decided the watched book reader never reads. Or emails. Or blog comments! But, rather than harass my Touched By An Alien by Gini Koch recipients, which in truth defeats the whole purpose anyhow, I’m brainstorming ideas to expand the pay it forward part of P.P.I.F.
You see, I also need something to blog about each Friday and since some readers are shy, I’ll figure better to add to the project rather than force feed it.
Here’s the deal. A lot of authors and readers have positively responded to this idea. Some have launched there own Touched By An Alien copies into the world, too. But, if you prefer to thank your favorite author on a smaller scale, here’s an option:
Review the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or wherever else you can. Also, tell the site whether other reviews were helpful. This generates all sorts of popularity stats for your favorite author and encourages their site to recommend or suggest it to shoppers based on their buying habits.
You can even do it anonymously if you’re worried about sounding like a sillyface, as I often am here.
