What you didn't expect after writing your first book (such as the pressure to write a second one!), how to deal with excoriating edits/bad reviews/good reviews, the new and unexpected pressures on your diary, the perils of publicity (good and bad), relationships with other authors, dealing with publishers who aren't based in your country, tax, etc.
