I was just thinking, after getting to a few of my emails (some were 3 weeks old...sawrry), how other authors keep up with their social media.
Even my kids complained about me not returning their calls, or asked (more like interrogated) me how come I didn't answer my phone. Probably because I had it turned off.
And not to avoid anyone in particular but because, as an independent author I don't have a staff like some of the successful authors. These people answer email, twitter, website and blog posts, send out promotion notices, and the lists goes on.
I cannot keep up with the 8,500 followers I have on an individual basis. What I have decided to do was to use the following forums to keep them up to date with what I'm doing so they don't think I'm ignoring them.
People, including family, friends and lovers don't understand why we need to at times detach ourselves from social media in order to get a product out.
I'm 1 week away from completing a short novel that should have been finished two dam months ago. I'm really pissed but it's my own fault because I allowed the distractions to get in the way.
So from now on if you don't hear from me for a while, I'm not dead. I promise if I am dead I will make sure I send you an email notice lol.
