Interview with author George Hudson - BK Walker Books virtual book tour
As I continue to host the BK Walker Books Authors Promoting Authors virtual blog tour, today I welcome author George Hudson.
George Sherman Hudson was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. After being rejected by different publishers because of the subject matter contained in his books while serving time, this father of two did some research and started G Street Chronicles, the urban book publishing company he runs with the help of his COO and fiancé Erica Jones. While George is working hard to make G Street Chronicles a recognized name in the literary industry, he's also working hard on his highly anticipated REAL series. George has authored five books in all. Having published more than 10 titles in the first year of business, George is determined to make G Street Chronicles an urban lit powerhouse.
Please tell us about your current release, Family Ties.
This book is about infidelity within the family. We focus so much on our mates cheating with others beyond our circle of friends and family. What happens when it's one of our own family members who's sleeping with our mate?
What inspired you to write this book?
An incident that a friend experienced. A good friend of mine was sleeping with his wife's cousin.
What exciting story are you working on next?
My next book is titled Blocked In. A touching drama-filled story about a young girl who's sold for drugs and later starts selling her body for money.
After wanting to let the game go, her pimp is not hearing it. The only way out is murder.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
After my first book showed up on amazon, barnes and noble, and in books a million.
Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
I am a full time writer and publisher. My day-to-day consists of promoting my authors, dealing with printers and distributors, and writing.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Probably the way I turn my tablet away from me while I write. People just can't figure out how I write sideways.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an actor.
