Author Joselin Linder’s just-released The Family Gene is a memoir about the deadly effects of a unique genetic mutation on her family, as well as their efforts to stop it. In part two of our two part conversation, Sean and Nicole sit down with Linder to discuss her new book and the ins and outs of making a living as a writer, including finding an agent, getting work for hire, using a pseudonym, and winning battles against writer’s block.
Sean also shares a crowdfunding tip about making your campaign a team effort, and we conclude with a rousing round of Uncle Sean’s Literary Trivia, a highly subjective and deeply unfair game that’s almost fun for the whole family.
The Family Gene was just released on Ecco/HarperCollins. Come to the book launch party on Monday, March 20th (that’s today!) at 7:30 PM at Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene, Brooklyn!
