Lisa Schroeder did a great post about how you can support authors without spending much money. I think everyone should read that post. 😉 I have been doing several of the things she mentioned, throughout 2009, like asking the library to order the books, etc.
Lisa Schroeder is the author of FAR FROM YOU and I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME. She has another upcoming book next year called CHASING BROOKLYN. =D
