Kevin Smith had it. (Because Mallrats.)
Friday Night Lights had it. (Landry and Tyra kill someone in season 2. Um…what?)
Gregory Maguire had it too. (Say what you will, but I think we can all agree that Son of a Witch is no Wicked.)
It’s the dreaded Sophomore Slump and it’s terrorized everyone who ever did anything well the first time and then had to do it again, only different and also better, the second time.
This is on my mind today because it turns out my second book, The Delving, is currently available at Amazon.com (and etc.) as an ebook.
Personally, although I loved The Uncovering with all the blind adoration a mother lavishes on her first child (before any subsequent siblings come along and turn her head) , I honestly think The Delving is a better book. It’s darker and sexier and adventurier and just generally a lot more fun. There’s a quest, a water witch, revenge plots, trolls, dungeons, torture, and a woman who brings a whole new meaning to the word flighty. Please read it and let me know what you think.
