So. I just finished the blog tour for my second novel, The Faerie Prince. It was great! I did a number of guest posts and interviews and bloggers were posting fantastic reviews. (Unfortunately I wasn't as active with replying to comments as I'd like to have been due to living with a tummy bug for the past 5 days. Yeah. Don't think about that!)
Almost every review of The Faerie Prince has a variation of the following in it:
"I can't wait to see what happens next. Rachel Morgan, please, please, write fast!" ~ Jessica Loves Books
"Anxiously awaiting the next book. Couldn't put this one down!" ~ Some Like it Paranormal
"... will have you dying for the next installment to be released as soon as possible!" ~ The Rest is Still Unwritten
"... I will be waiting desperately for the next installment." ~ The Book Hookup
Squeeeeee! I'm sure every single one of you authors can agree with me - how AWESOME is it to have people begging for your next book?! SO AWESOME! But - and this is a very small but because I am in no way complaining here - can anyone say PRESSURE?! I now have to deliver a third book that meets the high expectations of everyone who loved the second book. And while I have every intention of doing just that (says confident me), it kinda scares me!
So ... do any of you series-veterans out there have a word of advice for me? How do you keep up the fabulousness while also getting books out fast enough to please your desperate readers?
