I can definitely relate to what Wil Wheaton is feeling. When we pulled the trigger and uploaded Duck Blood Soup to amazon.com I didn’t think anyone would buy it. If they did buy it, I didn’t think anyone would like it. Turns out I was wrong. There are actually people we don’t know writing good reviews.
Of course, now I’ve got the same feelings as we start the second book. What if it sucks? What if the people who liked the first book hate the second? What if we’re one hit wonders? But, we press on and write. Who knows. Maybe book two will be better.
