We talk to Aube Rey Lescure just days away from launching her debut, RIVER EAST, RIVER WEST. And guess what? It’s not all the dream she’d thought it would be. We talk about what a lot writers go through when publishing their first books (or even their tenth), how she got to this stage in the first place, and how she’s forging ahead on her second novel.
