Dead and Berried on a second printing... already?

Well, I'm on word 555 of the new book when I get an e-mail telling me that Dead and Berried is already in its second printing. Holy smoke. Its official release date isn't even until February!

Of course, the temptation is to go and write a third immediately, but am wisely resisting. Will perhaps increase daily word count, but think is bad idea -- though tempting -- to write two books concurrently. Risk of forgetting that innkeeping character is not werewolf, and therefore should not drink poisonous wolfsbane tea on hourly basis. Hmmm... potential plot point? Islander poisoned by faux mint tea? Werewolves scare off weekend wedding party?

Anyway, must rechain self to word processor. Will post final word count for the day later.

P.S. (two hours later) Topped out at 1,582. Only 78,418 to go!

Thanks, Deb. And you too... I know your books are selling like hotcakes!

Do you write them serially, or one at a time?

Inquiring minds want to know... :)
