My latest on Gotham Ghost Writers:
GG Craft Interviews: Bob Eckstein
by L.M. Archer
I’m excited to share the first in a series of monthly author interviews I’m conducting for Gotham Ghostwriters.
This month, I interview famed New Yorker Magazine cartoonist Bob Eckstein about his forthcoming book, “The Complete Book of Cat Names (That Your Cat Won’t Answer to, Anyway).”
For those of you unaware of my additional writing services beyond wine, food and travel, I also provide content and ghost writing for consumer, B2B, and B2C publications and platforms worldwide.
Without further ado, here’s Bob…
“Gotham Ghostwriters Craft Interviews highlight the extraordinary talent of our writer community. Each month, L. M. Archer interviews a member of our network about one of their books, delving into their inspiration and creative process.
This month, Archer asks writer and illustrator Bob Eckstein all about his humor book The Complete Book of Cat Names (That Your Cat Won’t Answer to, Anyway).”
When does The Complete Book of Cat Names (That Your Cat Won’t Answer to, Anyway) launch, and what was the impetus for writing it?
“I am laughing as I write this, because I know my answer is going to come off so weird. But like my previous dozen books I’ve worked on, the motivation always begins with what I think people enjoy reading. My snowman book, my first book 15 years ago, came about from walking in a bookstore and seeing that there was a need for a nondenominational holiday book. Each book after came from that thinking. This new book is just trying to be as funny as I can be about a topic that is so beloved by many, cats. I have bookstore owner friends tell me cat books are what people need, and I wanted my new book to allow me to just be flat funny without the burden of teaching anything or being high-brow. The book comes out August 8th. International Cat Day, of course.” READ THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE.
