Shelf Life by Christina George

Book Review

Shelf Life by Christina George was a great sequel to “The Publicist“.  I started this one the minute after I finished “The Publicist” because I was so in love with the characters and I had to know what happened next in the series.  In this book I really started to love Mac more and I saw more why she had a hard time going choosing which one to be with.   I think I liked this book more than the first one because you got to see more of who Kate really is and I love seeing her rebuild her life.  I loved reading about what it is like in the publishing world because I know what it is like for those of us who review books so I love getting a glimpse in to what happens with authors and getting the books published.

About The Book

It’s an industry of out-of-control egos, unrealistic expectations, and unfulfilled promises.

This is publishing and it’s Kate’s world, but maybe not for long.

When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold onto but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. With the shelf life of her career and her love affair quickly expiring, Kate sets off on a new adventure…

Starting over in California is easy but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn’t. Nick Lavigne is eager to help her forget but two things still own her heart, the dream of discovering the next great American novel, and MacDermott Ellis.

As Kate tries to rebuild her life she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest bestsellers publishing has seen in ages and she’s welcomed back with open arms.

But at the height of her success the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she’d been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart.

Behind the book, there’s always more to the story. Welcome to Publishing, the ego has landed.

About The Author

Christina George has worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn’t. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, cause it’s more fun to guess, right? George continues to work in publicity and helps authors because at the end of the day she does love books, she loves publishing, and she loves authors. She hopes you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as she enjoyed creating it.

The Publicist by Christina George

Book Review

The Publicist by Christina George was a great book.  I wasn’t sure when I was started this book if I was going to like it but after the first couple of pages I was hooked and didn’t want to put this book down or the others in the series.  I loved this authors writing and I also loved the plot of this book.  I loved Kate and I really liked Mac until Nick came into the book and then I was in love with Nick.  I was so glad that I had the next book in series waiting for me because I would have hated to wait to read the rest of the books.  If you love romance books I would recommend this book to you.  I will be reviewing the second book tomorrow and the third book on Wednesday so make sure you come back and check them out.

About The Book

Behind every book, there’s always more to the story.Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t always sell (at all) and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.Enter the star Editor, MacDermott Ellis. Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author, now as forgotten as yesterday’s news; and his nephew Nick, who wants to sweep Kate away from New York for another coast, California.As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, the over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn’t on the bestseller list this week”, she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.
