Interview with Georgia Le Carre, author of 'The Billionaire Banker'

Georgia Le Carre lives in England, in an old 19th century romantic cottage surrounded by a magical garden filled with fruit and walnut trees.  When she is not feeding words into her laptop, she is either curled up in bed with a box of chocolates and a good read, or lost in a long walk in the woods. Especially on moonlit nights.  And often with the man of her dreams.

Her latest book is the romance/erotica, The Billionaire Banker.

About the Book:

Time is running out for Lana Bloom.  She needs money desperately and fast.  And all she has left to sell is her beautiful body.  When she walks into that exclusive restaurant she does not know that the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied into the restaurant.

Utterly confident and breathtakingly handsome, Blake Law Barrington is the fourth generation of an illustrious banking family.  He has everything he desires, and everything under control.  As is the custom in the great, old houses, marriage is a time of consolidation and expansion.  He is due to marry Victoria Montgomery, daughter of the Fourth Earl of Hardwicke.

If he had left that restaurant five minutes earlier he would not have seen the girl in the cheap orange dress and the six-inch high plastic platforms walk in. 

And his carefully constructed universe would still be intact…

Q: Welcome to The Writer's Life!  Now that your book is published, we'd love to find out more about the process.  How did you come up with the idea?

I wanted to tell a story about the 0.001% of the world’s population, the unimaginably rich elite who more and more blatantly rule the rest of us.  And since the best way to communicate an unpalatable truth is to slip it into a medium that is at once innocuous and comforting, I chose romance.  Voila: The Billionaire Banker.

Q: How hard was it to write a book like this and do you have any tips that you could pass on which would make the journey easier for other writers?

There is nothing about writing that is difficult—witness the 40 million and growing books on Amazon. I’d much rather write 100 books than work one day in a slaughterhouse or a chicken factory! 

The journey has been told and retold for the Indie writer.  There is a entire industry out there dedicated to giving tips for writers.  Far be it for me to bypass the veterans.

Q: Who is your publisher and how did you find them or did you self-publish?

You mean you haven’t noticed my beautiful Indy T-shirt.

Q: Is there anything that surprised you about getting your first book published?

The competitive nature of the Amazon beast startled me.  How quickly it moves.  Everything geared to sales, sales, sales.  No time to stop and stare.  I had always imagined an author’s path as a gentle one.  Such a way did not include sock puppets or clawed, one-star reader-reviewers.

Q: Can you describe the feeling when you saw your published book for the first time?

The stranger feeling was seeing my little book pop up on Amazon!  Weird and wonderful. 

Q: What other books (if any) are you working on and when will they be published?

I’m on Book 2 where large secrets are revealed.

Q: Fun question: How does your book contribute to making this world a better place?

When one is reading my book one is unlikely to be breaking into someone’s house or participating in a road rage incident.  And that in itself is a fine thing, is it not? 

Q: Finally, what message (if any) are you trying to get across with your book?

Every artistic endeavor is an attempt by the artist to get across a message, often a hidden message.  Harry Potter has a message as does Casual Vacancy.  And the Billionaire Banker definitely has one!  It is for the reader to decode. 


Q: Thank you again for this interview!  Do you have any final words?

Thank you for having me.  It’s been fun.  Stay cool now.
