I'm really excited to have fellow Harper Impulse author Nic Tatano join me for Meet the Author this week.
His latest novel, Boss Girl is released on Thursday February 20th through Harper Impulse but, for now, why not read on and find out a little bit more about the man himself...
Was it always your intention to find an agent/publisher, or did you ever think about, or indeed go down, the self-publishing route?
I've taken all routes, as I think writers need as many hooks in the water as possible. I had an agent for a while, and when we parted ways I sent my work directly to publishers, which is how I got my contract with HarperCollins. (Which blows up the myth that you need an agent to get a book deal.) I've also self-published my political thrillers and a couple of journalism textbooks.
Do you listen to music while you write, or are you someone who needs complete silence to work?
Do you have a designated “work space”, and if so, can you describe it?
With nothing to lose she does the unthinkable; along with three female managers who happen to be her best friends she brings out the casting couch and turns it into a sleeper sofa. Doesn't matter that the men have no television experience. As long as they look good. And there’s a hint of romance in every newscast.
Ratings skyrocket as a result, but Sydney and her female cohorts discover something else along the way…
True love is not always age appropriate.
And you can check out Nic's dream cast for Boss Girl right here on Fantasy Cast Friday, this Friday!
