There are lots and lots of bands out there that are one-hit wonders. Songs earn great popularity and then, for some reason, the band never produces anything noteworthy (ha, mind the pun) again. It's disappointing and sometimes saddening, but they get their fifteen minutes of fame, at least.
Translating that to writing, people talk about how important it is to have something new to offer. To keep your name in people's minds with new quality releases. And yet there are authors, I'm sure, who write one fantastic book and never hit that high again.
As I look at my mounting list of things to write, polish and turn in, I begin to wonder where the line between not enough material and too much is. I will, perhaps, one day relate my greatest faux pas yet. It has to do with submitting too much too soon.
But what I'm curious about is, where's the line? Do you haunt the websites or mailing lists of authors who write one fantastic book, hoping for another? How long do you stay if it doesn't come? Are there authors who have so many books coming out one after another that you get overwhelmed and turned off of following their careers?
