When I talked to other authors who had one book out, we discover something: we all struggled to get that second book finished!
For some of us, the problem was coming up with a second idea worthy of a novel; for others, it was writing a whole second book only have it rejected by the publisher. All of us struggled with fears over whether this book would be as good as the first. Would readers shake their heads, saying, “Too bad. Her first book was so good!”?
Join me and author friends Anika Fajardo and Laekan Zea Kemp for a discussion of the slump that often happens when we go write that sophomore book. THANK YOU, Las Musas, whose Sophomore Social podcast series includes this episode to which I was graciously invited: https://open.spotify.com/episode/5rarIG0zVRhuYyqgj7QSXc
Happy ending: all three of us did succeed in writing that second book, and they all come out this year, 2022!
