Literary Jackpot article

Here is a New Year's treat.... A New York Times article about author Anthony Doerr and the surprising success of his novel All the Light We Cannot See.

Sales of this book continued to soar during 2014, and the author can now relax and enjoy the success. Yet he has three other book ideas he is toying with - each very different from the others.

In the mind of a busy writer, that's just what we do.  As the author states:

"You just try to water these things like plants and see which one gets the most light and flourishes."

What a lovely way to think of our writing. May 2015 bring you surprising success, however you define it!
