Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Prithiv here, I’m a Romance author and have released my first novel titled ‘Manhattan Courtship’. Before I began writing, I experimented with various occupations: mechanical supervisor, computer networking, human resources… In any case, my most loved occupation is the one I’m currently doing full time – writing books.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Name of my debut book is ‘Manhattan Courtship’. It’s a Romance Novel. One fine day, I needed to simply wanted to come up with a fictional novel with a touch of the stories from my own life added to it. That is the point at which I figured that I should write a Romance novel, as it’s free-flowing and I got my own experience as well.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not that I am aware of. But, I write for the most part amid the mornings, when the psyche is crisp with new thoughts.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The unusual part is that, I don’t have any most loved Romance author, since I read less Romance myself. But, on the off chance that I needed to state which writer impacted me, I got the opportunity to run with few names that I appreciate reading, Stephen King, James Herbert, John Saul and couple more writers who emerged in the recent past.
What are you working on now?
I haven’t begun with my next title yet. It’s just been week since my first book turned out, despite everything i’m concentrating on it’s promotion and sales.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Mostly through word of mouth and the rest through social media platforms.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Be your own editor/critic. Sympathetic but merciless!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Always carry a note-book. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever.
What are you reading now?
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. So far so good!
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’m as of now attempting to promote my book as much as I can to reach the readers. Will take criticism from them, and work on the errors, so I don’t rehash it in the up and coming books.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
It’s hard to pick but I will need to think about it before taking a trip anywhere close to the sea shore.
