I was looking through my emails today and I came across something really cool in my inbox..
I had recently entered a contest in which my entry just constituted leaving a comment for the author of a fiction book as it was her debut novel.
This is the email I received 🙂
You won the Fresh Fiction contest for Lorenz Font — ONE DAY
ONLY BLOG CONTEST! Lorenz Font – Win HUNTED (5244)
Please watch your inbox for your e-book. Your e-book will
come directly from Renaissance Romance Publishing so please
watch your Spam/Junk folder also.
Thank you for entering contests at Fresh Fiction. Please
tell your friends and we hope you’ll enter our contests
again! If you’re on Twitter or part of our Facebook
communities please take a moment to post your win, we really
appreciate it! Check back for our daily blog contests, you
need to leave a comment but the blog contests usually only
last a day or two and have great prizes!
It just goes to show that sometimes it pays to stop and wish someone luck and success or encourage them by letting them know that you believe their work has value to you.
This to me is the epitome of paying it forward as we each want to know that we are of value and that we are doing something great..
So my advice, take the time and comment on someone’s blog, up coming book, story, poem or even just drop a line to say hello..
