"Write Like Hell, Get Rejected, Don't Give Up, Write Some More" – Gareth Crocker

The Last Road TripGareth Crocker recently chatted to Nadine Maritz about his latest novel, his new television show about an African superhero named Jongo and his upcoming autobiography that will be released later this year.

Crocker describes The Last Road Trip as “an adventure with great heart” and warns that the reader might need to keep some tissues nearby.

The author shares advice on how to make it in the writing world and how to handle criticism. “Write like hell, get rejected, don’t give up, write some more.”

Your novel – The Last road Trip has just been released by Penguin. How is this novel different from the others?

Well, for one thing it doesn’t involve an animal as a really central character. It’s a story of four elderly people who, at the end of their lives, decide to go on one last epic road trip together. It has a similar feel to my other books, but I think it will appeal to a wider readership. Animal books polarise readers to a large extent. I’m not going to lie … I really love The Last Road Trip and hope that readers will too. I miss the characters and the journey we embarked on together
