This week on Black and Published, Nikesha speaks with Victoria Christopher Murray, author of Pride, A Seven Deadly Sins Novel. A native of Queens, New York, Victoria spent years in Corporate America and as an entrepreneur before embarking on her literary career in the late 90s. Dubbed a Christian Fiction writer because no one else was writing about religious topics, Victoria blazed the literary scene penning more than 30 novels, co-writing with other authors, and ghostwriting for top talent across the country.
In our conversation, Victoria discusses her guerrilla marketing plan for her debut, self-published novel that led her to sell 9,000 copies in just a few months. How she managed a two year period of rejection by major publishers and being intimidated by her own work after winning an NAACP Image Award.
