Jarrett J. Krosoczka On What it Means to Be an Author
In addition to this picture book, Krosoczka has also been busy working on new installments for two book series. He pointed out that his job is not limited to just writing and illustrating. All authors in this day and age need to wear many hats in order to maintain their careers.
“You know people who are authors-only? Could I meet them? Because even though I, along with many of my peers, make my living from putting my imagination to paper, so many other roles are expected in today’s publishing landscape. Authors must also be speakers, performers, online marketeers and social-media mavens. But in the end, it’s all worth it, because I do get to make a living from my imagination.”
