Allison here: I’m thrilled to have romantic thriller author Elizabeth Heiter here at Murder She Writes! She has her second book coming out later this month. I love the way her publisher has branded her series. I loved the first book HUNTED and am so excited about the upcoming VANISHED. Liz is giving away a copy of HUNTED to one lucky commenter … so please tell her hello!
“Second Book Syndrome”
By Elizabeth Heiter
Last year, my debut novel HUNTED released on New Year’s Eve (a fun night for a first book release, because you’re already celebrating!). You spend months – maybe even years – working on that first book (that sells) and then it finally happens! After that sale, you spend another year(ish) working with your editor to make the book even better, and then it hits the shelves. There’s a certain splash to being a debut – a new author gets some attention simply for being new. Then comes book two.
