Quick #Author Chat with Christina George @publicistgal #Romance #Contemporary #AmReading

How do you feel about self-publishing? I love it, I think it’s a great way for authors to get their work out there. Look, not everyone will find their way to a major publishing house, that’s just not going to happen. Self-publishing, if it’s done right, can be a fantastic way to get yourself “out there” and start building traction for you, your career and your book!

When you get free time on the internet or you go to the library – what do you want to read about? Candidly I do a ton of research for my work so sometimes I just get lost on Pinterest. So sometimes it’s just a little break. But if I’m at the library I love digging through old copies of Publishers Weekly to see what I’ve missed about the industry :-)

Last book you purchased? Tell us about it. I just read One Second After and it scared the bejeepers out of me. It’s about what happens when the Electromagnetic Pulse is tampered with. Basically it’s the end of the world as we know. It’s a book based on fact, which is even scarier.

Who do you admire? I really admire authors who are going it on their own, doing a lot of work and not expecting miracles. I have worked with a lot of authors over the years who think that people should drop what they are doing because they wrote a book. Then there are those authors who work and work and work and get themselves out there and are grateful for everything they get. I love those authors and I admire them so much. It’s so easy to get caught up in it all. You’ve got to stay grounded.

What is your favorite quality about yourself? I would have to say my sense of humor, or rather my ability to laugh at stressful situations or during stressful times. I feel like humor is so important and it can get us through a lot of tough times.
