No, I'm not there yet, but I would like to know what to expect once a novel has been accepted by a publisher. I know that it's good to have more projects underway. Will the publisher ask about that before accepting the first manuscript? Will it be expected that you produce another work within a certain amount of time? Will a subsequent manuscript be automatically read? Can you expect that your publisher will be loyal to you and will your publisher expect you to be loyal to them?
