About Craig Currie-Robson:
I write fiction and nonfiction. Nonfiction interests include travel, politics, war stories and human interest. I’m also interested in wildlife and conservation writing. Future nonfiction projects will be similar.
What inspires you to write?
The world and my own experiences. I saw an interview with Bill Maher and Matt Taibi once and Maher pointed out that to write NF you have to be angry about something. Nothing gets people going like a good scandal or a story of injustice.
Tell us about your writing process.
For NF, I start with an idea then hit the library and the web. Then I find people and contact them by email seeking interviews. Then I take a mass of data, spread it all over the floor at start to arrange it into chapters.
What advice would you give other writers?
They say everyone has a book in them – find yours. Whether it’s fiction, a memoir, a biography of someone that interests you or a topic that has not been exposed yet, you know what it is and don’t be afraid to start on it. The early bird catches the room.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
No agent was interested in English to Go – too small a topic, but I hard to start somewhere. I went straight to Amazon after that. Now after reading about plenty of people getting noticed when they published on Amazon, I’ll go there first and try agents/publishers if i make enough sales to get their attention.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
More online, less paper. The publishers will go online too and they’ll be lurking on Amazon looking for talent.
What genres do you write?: Fiction, nonfiction
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
