It is truly a writer's dream to have a hit story. To finally arrive at the intersection of where a published novel finds massive success. Fortunes change, prospects appear brighter, the future can scarcely be better. Every writer desires that day. What we don't talk about enough, however, is what life is really like in the wake of a highly triumphant novel, after the fanfare has ceased. What does a writer do, say and feel in the gloamy clearing following pub-season hype; on that isthmus conjoining yesterday's triumphs and tomorrow's promise? In Between Novels is an intimate conversation about the less talked about aspects of a writing career. Cherie, Donna and Maisy are three award-winning Caribbean women writers whose books were released during the COVID19-pandemic to considerable acclaim. Three years later, we'll ask them questions like, 'What comes next?',  'Do you feel like a captive to your earlier success?', 'How soon is too soon to expect new work?' What's life really like In Between Novels?
