Douglas Weissman thought he was set right away—he has an MFA thesis project, and was exited to start querying. Nine years later, he pivoted and found success—and his forthcoming novel, Life Between Seconds, comes out with Addison & Highsmith in November: bookshop.org/books/life-between…onds/9781592111749
