If we were having coffee, I’d be complaining about how hard it is to sell a debut novel. I’d tell you how all my author friends say the first book is the hardest but to keep at it. They always assure me that by the time I publish the third or fourth book I will be on my way. But then again, they’re not really friends, are they? They are the competition.
Still … I’d tell you that I see their point. I’d finish my coffee and carefully place the empty mug on the table, then stand up and announce, “That’s it, then .. my next novel will officially be my FOURTH novel!”
