When is it too much of a good thing?

I am fairly prolific, and I've already been worrying about what the saturation point is for having too many books released in a year. The new thought seems to be the more the merrier, but is that really true? Will readers get tired of seeing you all the time? One of my favorite authors just sent out her newsletter, and she has releases coming up in 10 of the next 12 months (including one or two paperback releases of hardcovers).

This leads me to a couple of questions: First, is she superwoman? I am in awe of this kind of writing speed (plus, it makes me want to take a nap, which says a lot about me). Second, will readers get saturated? Or when you love an author enough, do you want to see more and more? Hmmm. What do you think? Email me if you want to chime in, at alesia@alesiaholliday.com. And don't forget to say BOOK RELEASE DAY in your subject line, to be put in for the random drawing.

Alesia, off to work
