You may have met Charles Yallowitz here at WordPress.
He is a huge supporter of fellow authors. I see him supporting other authors with reblogs, author interviews, group involvement, active comments, and much more. On top of that, he openly shares his marketing and writing tips on his WordPress blog.
I’ve heard newbie authors mention how impressed they were that Charles interacted with them on their new blogs. He was an avid supporter when I launched Read Tuesday last year.
Although Charles is very busy writing and editing his books (and raising a family), he always finds time to support fellow authors.
So here is our chance to do something very small and easy to help show our gratitude.
(By the way, Charles doesn’t know that I’m writing this post. It’ll be a nice surprise.)
Charles has a Thunderclap promotion going on.
It’s very simple. He needs 100 authors to sign up to automatically Tweet or post on Facebook a simple message about his Legends of Windemere fantasy series.
All you have to do is:
- Click on the picture above, which will take you to Thunderclap.
- Click the button for Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. (You can do more than one, if you wish.)
- Personalize the message that links to his note about his series. (You’ll see the note when you click the picture above, so you won’t have to worry about not knowing what it says—you’ll know what it says.)
It will just take one minute. I know because I just signed up for it with Twitter. 🙂
Your post will only go live if he reaches his goal of 100 supporters.
He only has 45 out of 100 right now. We need 55 more supporters to make his Thunderclap promotion a success.
There are just 11 days left. If it’s a success, your post will go live on October 4.
So, please show your support to a highly supportive author.
If you enjoy fantasy books (sword & sorcery), you might enjoy his series. I’ve read his stories, and love the characters.
Feel free to spread the word about his Thunderclap promotion. You might also look into Thunderclap for your next promotion. It looks like a cool tool.
Here’s a big THANK YOU for any support you can lend.
Thank you so much for the help. I really appreciate it.
You easily deserve it (times a million). I hope you reach your goal. 🙂
I hope so too. All I can do now is repeated blog posts. FB gets ignored and tweets tend to be retweeted without the retweeter signing up. Social media is so strange at times.
Count me in. I read Charles’ blog all the time, not sure how I missed this promotion.
That’s great. Thank you so much for helping Charles reach his goal. Every supporter counts. 🙂
Done via FB, Twitter, Tumblr and reblogged – NEXT? 😀
Chris, you might be the ultimate author supporter. Thank you. 🙂
😀 😀 😀
Just tweeted. This cracking stuff. Good luck with campaign.
Thank you very much. 🙂
I totally support! Tweeting this now!
Thank you so much. 🙂
We appreciate your support. Thank you. 🙂

Charles Yallowitz is the author of the truly excellent Legends of Windemere series, and always finds the time to support other writers in lots of ways, so now’s the time to give some love back, and at the same time find out how Thunderclap works by being part of the process.
Thank you for helping to drum up support. It would be great to see Thunderclap in action. 🙂

I’m always willing to do what I can to help other authors like myself. I thought I would pass this along. It might be something you’re interested in doing.
Thank you for helping to make Charles’ Thunderclap promotion a success. 🙂
This is a really kind gesture 🙂 I’ll definitely sign up, although that may be contingent on whether I can figure out how to make it work. But assuming that happens, I’m in!
Thank you. 🙂 It was pretty painless. Assuming you’re not kidnapped by aliens on your way, it shouldn’t be too bad.
I managed it! It was touch and go for a minute there when the Ssrisk showed up and tried to blast my head off, but I reminded them that indie authors have to support each other, and they were so confused by my inappropriate reaction to imminent death that they left.
I must remember this life-saving tactic. 🙂
