What books did you love growing up? Candidly I loved Nancy Drew, I wanted to be Nancy Drew solving mysteries and helping people. Loved those books. I also loved all of the Laura Ingalls books, such a fascinating life she had.
Why do some authors fail? Well there are a few reasons actually. One is that their ego gets in the way of their success. Meaning that they see this fame they want and assume it’s theirs just because they wrote a book. The second is that they don’t do enough or aren’t willing to put in the work needed to succeed. Though we love overnight success stories they rarely happen.
What do you hope your obituary will day about you? That Christina George started in publishing as a publicist and ended up being one of the best loved romance authors ever. Is that too pretentious? How about the best-loved author on Staten Island? Or New Jersey? Maybe I’ll start small But I’d love to write full time – as any author would I’m sure.
What is hardest – getting published, writing or marketing? Well publishing is easy now, thanks to self-publishing – and I always tell authors that writing is the easy part (though I know it does not feel easy when you’re in the midst of it). But for most authors, the marketing is really tough. That’s why I encourage them to reach out to someone who can help, maybe a fellow author or going to a writers conference or something. Don’t isolate yourself, that’s the worst. It’s hard to do it alone.
What marketing works for you? Reviews work very well as does engaging with readers. I love getting reader feedback
Do you plan to publish more books? Yes, I do — I really want to keep writing more about the publishing industry. It seems that the topic engages people, the behind-the-scenes stuff…
