Take That, Second Book Blues.

DIng dong, book 2 is done(ish)

There is a thing that authors whisper about (but only around other published authors). A thing that, like so many things in life, no one tells you about until you find yourself right smack dab in the middle of it. The Second Book Blues.

And Internet? It’s terrifying.

See, after the hullabaloo that comes with selling your first book and joining the ranks of the published, sooner or later you have to sit down and right the next one.

In my case, it was sooner. My next deadline was in three short months. Three. Months. To write another book. From scratch. Now, granted, I wrote the first draft of the first book in less than a month, so this shouldn’t have been a problem.
