Quote from article: "The book business is upending its traditional timetable by encouraging a kind of binge reading, releasing new works by a single author at an accelerated pace. The practice of spacing an author’s books at least one year apart is gradually being discarded as publishers appeal to the same “must-know-now” impulse that drives binge viewing of shows like “House of Cards” and “Breaking Bad.”
- I am an extremely impatient person.
- As I wait the year between books, I often forget important plot points. Like all of them.
- I'm often hesitant to commit years of my life to a series or trilogy.
- There are SO many books and when I have to wait a long time between books, I lose interest.
- Binge reading is fun.
"Writing Mortal Heart in thirteen months is probably the single hardest writing thing I have ever done. Sadly, it required me to withdraw from just about every other thing in my life, including socializing (whether through social media or in real life) and sleeping."
