You see, I am an author. I am also a marketing professional. I have two careers – both of which I enjoy very much, but both of which take a great deal of time and attention!
So back to the question: “How do you manage to do both?”
I know that I am not the only author who works outside of writing, and I have developed a short list of “rules” I follow so I don’t get overwhelmed.
Working a job while writing a novel can be difficult, but it can be done! And here is the good news: It gets easier with practice! Set goals. Make mini-deadlines. Become a stickler with managing your calendar. These are the methods I employed while writing my Regency romance series, Whispers on the Moors. The second book in the series, The Headmistress of Rosemere, releases at the end of December 2013, and I could not be more excited!
