It took roughly a year to write DIE AND STAY DEAD. Like DYING IS MY BUSINESS, it went through a lot of different versions before it became the version you'll see when the novel comes out in September. Luckily, I have a great bunch of fellow writers I workshop with. Their input was spectacular and, at times, utterly lifesaving. Unfortunately, I'm also a very slow writer, and the plots for these novels are quite intricate, so it all adds up to taking a lot longer to write than I thought it would. Thanks for asking!(less)
