I was on r/fantasy this morning when I came across a question I get asked a lot: “what’s the best way to support authors?” I know the feeling; you’re passionate about an author’s works and you’re wondering how you can help them spin these wonderful worlds out of random thoughts. There are a lot of things you can do to help authors, and some of them are free. Here are the ten ways I find most helpful to help keep authors creatively inspired and financially solvent.
I have good news and bad news, readers. The bad news first: that blur that just buzzed past your eye was November. Time is no longer content to merely fly; it now seems hell-bent on shattering the sound barrier as we hurtle through our lives towards our inevitable ends.
And speaking of those inevitable ends, the good news is that today is Mordo Ogg’s Day!
