As a writer/author it means a lot to have the support of family, friends and fellow authors. Small things like compliments or messages of encouragement make a huge difference in the life of most writers. It's that extra special addition that tells you that you are doing a good job. Your work is liked or loved. Your work is appreciated.
Authors love getting notes especially from readers. It might be a line or two but something so small can brighten ones day.
I am fortunate to have the support of my family, friends and fellow writers/authors. That truly means the world to me. These are the people that give me that kick in the butt to push forward when you have a rough day or you get a rejection.
They motivate you to try harder. To never stop what you do because your work makes a difference in their lives. Being an author has shown me so much of the writing world I had not known about. It has given me the chance to live out a dream doing what I love. Bringing stories to life, creating worlds, giving life to characters...
I'm thankful for everyday that I get to do what I love and have such strong supporters all around me. Not everyone is fortunate to have strong support systems around them. Someone to guide them as they try to achieve their dreams.
So I wonder who is your biggest supporter? Is it family, friends?
Also next time you read a book drop the author a line if you enjoyed the work. That gesture can brighten up their day.
So while we are on the topic of books...My book Bid For Love has been released. I thought I would tease you a bit with a blurb...

When the New York’s Sexiest Bachelor auction begins and Jeff comes up on the block, she’s seriously tempted to place a bid. The wager can’t be taken lightly — it might be for a good cause, but she’s making a bid for love……
