She can time travel wherever she wants

Audrey Niffenegger is doing fine, thanks for asking.

"After a fiercely contested auction, Scribner, a unit of Simon & Schuster, bought the rights to publish the new novel, “Her Fearful Symmetry,” in the United States this fall. The book is a supernatural story about twins who inherit an apartment near a London cemetery and become embroiled in the lives of the building’s other residents and the ghost of their aunt, who left them the flat."

The article notes that big advances don't necessarily turn into big sales numbers for second novels.
I've not read either of Charles Frazier's books, but I wonder if he's being unfairly typecast as the poster child for sophomore jinxes.
Sales figures be damned, that moniker fits more comfortable in a bunch of other places.
