The excuses people use to explain long gaps in post history(Including us)

Published June 4, 2013 by G.L.

Like anyone attempting to self publish a book, there are many things one has to take into account before their book is actually released.

Building an author platform  is by far one of the most important things one can do as a self published author. But most people whom have decided to self publish, also know that life must go on. Your book or your author platform could care less whether your children need rides to school, or that your day job mandates you to stay an extra hour or two at work after a 10 hour shift.

We are currently working a Part II of the importance of having an author’s blog, as well as manage a personal blog. With the editing of our book, we have been forced to put it down for a minimum of 4 weeks to be able to look at it objectively in the self editing process before even submitting it a professional editor. In the meantime, we’ve decided to do the first draft of another book we also want to self publish.

We try not to go more than a week and a half without an “original” post(meaning not a reblogged post).


Would love to know how many other self published authors or soon to be self published authors experience this 🙂

  • I’m fairly new to author blogging, but I can forsee having some struggle to find things to write about as I work on my second novel. I don’t intend to rush it and research may divert me for periods of time. This will leave me with little to report, which leaves the option of making commentaries. Time will tell how frequently I manage to keep up the posts.
