Deb Baker/Hannah Reed
Once upon a time...authors produced one book every year. And readers were perfectly happy with that.
Now...they want our next book yesterday. And we're doing everything possible to grant those wishes. My publisher (Berkley Prime Crime) sends a new beekeeping mystery out about every nine months. Just like a baby, it goes through various stages of development - work with my editor to make it the best it can be, inhouse meetings to discuss cover ideas and sales techniques, multiple fine tunings, searching for those sneaky little typos, then off to the printer and finally distribution throughout the country and beyond. Berkley has a lot of authors. The wheels are racing all the time.
Readers are wanting more faster. I'm writing as fast as I can. So are all the other Chicks. Thank you for your patience and loyalty. We love you.
