WordPress, I would love your help. Before I decided to take up blogging I really wanted to write a book. After the countless forums and searching the opinions from already established authors and bloggers, I decided that building up an audience and small following would hopefully allow me to gain a little exposure, whilst building up the content that I would need to fill the pages!
The more I post, the bigger the itch to start building the foundations for a book. Have you done anything similar?
I would firstly love to know the following:
- How long did it take you to write your book? (Not including the time taken to publish, design etc)
- Is it self published or through a respected publishing company? What made you choose that company?
- Was your blog helpful in the production of your book? Did you wait for a specific amount of followers or views before considering the publication would be more of a success?
These may not apply to you, maybe one or two points do. Whether you are in the same boat as me or a very successful author, the info will be a valuable insight.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
