How does it feel to be a literary sensation?

I've waxed lyrical over Diane Setterfield's Thirteenth Tale before, and now that her book is out in both US (released two days ago) and UK, the book's publisher's marketing machine is at full force. With her book auctioned off for $1m in the US and £800,000 in the UK, it's no surprise the publishers are making sure they'll be getting their investment back.

But how is the author getting on now that she's had her first novel published (and is richer)? From the Yorkshire Post:
"I do miss the washing up – it was part of my quiet afternoon time when I was allowed to think," she says, adding: "I do miss writing very badly."
I'm nearly halfway through her book, and there isn't one bit at all I don't like about it so far...
