Mario here:

I am now an international author. Here is my one foreign title, the translated version of The Nymphos of Rocky Flats, from the Czech republic:

I'll give their art director the benefit of the doubt and assume that this cover resonates with the Czech public and soon my bank account will runneth over with korunas. 

Get Smart!

How do you balance creativity against the relentless push of deadline? What is it like to slave at the word count, only to leave your work-in-progress to address a fresh round of revisions from another manuscript? And then the copy edits from another book fall on top of you. Plus you’re expected to blanket social media with promotions for yet another book.
