What's Your Biggest Challenge with Your Book?

I'd be interested to learn what authors/publishers on this network think their biggest challenges are with their book. I wonder if there's any common, pervasive challenge we all face.

Nate, Thimblerig's Ark is a great story! Hope you can find time to write some more!

Thanks for all the encouragement, 4-LAN!  

You betcha' :-)

I feel ya. I'm a Mom of three and I work. Finding time to write is so challenging. Sometimes I sacrifice sleep for the week to get in some writing. Then I catch up on it the next week going to bed early.

My biggest challenge today is promoting Madam Lilly, Voodoo Priestess by Dormaine G.

Help the author while helping me to make this week's edition of what I Am Reading receive the most number of views yet.

Thank you everyone and be sure to leave a comment :-)

I think the biggest challenge is trying to maximize exposure. Without a big publishing company to market our books we need to help one another get the word out.

If you would be so kind as to check out this week's review and post a comment on the blog, I would be ever so grateful. Sharing the link on your other social networks would be greatly appreciated :-)

Selling my book, The Little Book of Revelation, is my biggest challenge. Even though it received favorable reviews by credible reviewers—such as BlueInk Review, which said things like, “Beautifully written; highly creative literary analysis; an intriguing study,” and eminent Bible scholar, Dr. Robert Eisenman, who said, “… you've got the subject well in hand; your illustrations are really good;  you've mastered another world than I”— it never got off the ground.

Quality books are no longer perceived as such, and many people are so confused about what to read that they end up reading low quality books, which are often portrayed as bestsellers by the media.


With a book like yours, you need to work from the bottom up rather than the top down. At least, that seems to be the case.

Get a rumble going via social media or participant websites where people go to talk about Revelation (if that is what your book is about). It's a persistent effort, each day a little more exposure, to build it to something much bigger.

Hi, I am trying to help out a fellow author on this site. His name is Martin Murphy and his book is titled Soul Lifter. Martin just recently put his book out in paperback and so I am trying to help out by re posting my review.

Please visit my blog and post a comment. Also, if you could stop by Martin's page and lend him some support-it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


Please check out this week's edition of What I Am Reading

Thanks for sharing this. Much appreciated.

My biggest challenge is to find constant motivation. My writing tends to be done in spurts. One week I write nothing and the next I write half the book.
