Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m an Engineering Student with a strong ardor for technology and writing. I’m a google play developer, a motion graphic artist, a graphic designer, and a podcast host. I have recently written my first book which is now available globally on Amazon. My dream has always been to get my book published and hopefully reach many people and help inspire them in every way.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my latest book is Midnight Dreams. This book was inspired by many people in a lot of ways. I wanted to tell a story by creating my own world and weaved a story that intrigued everyone who read it. My passion for writing fueled me to do things i never thought i could. The characters in this book have been inspired by people around me.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
It usually stars out with me creating a storyline with a flowchart. This helps me keep track of every character and every plot twist and diversion in the book. This helps me organize and effectively overcome the writer’s block. This method also helps me take a quick glance at the book’s plot if I wish to add minute details in the story. Once the flowchart is sorted out, I keep that as a reference and write the story.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The book Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss has influenced me in a lot of ways. It’s shed some light on how a tale can be told differently to capture the reader’s interest. Many of John Green’s book has also influenced me in a lot of ways. The fault in our stars, The Abundance of the Katherines and many more such books have helped me become a better writer.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on my Next book which is about friendship, love, and romance. I’m very excited to see how the book would turn out. The characters have their own personality and traits that is going to take the reader into a world of their own. Hopefully, my next book will be as successful as my current one.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I would say that the best way to promote a book is use services like Amazon advertising services and many book promotion sites like this one (awesome gang). But the best form of advertising is word of mouth. Get your friends and family to review the book and express their opinion.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t hold back. The world needs to hear your story. Whatever genre you have written, whatever plot you have spun, the world will be short of one amazing book if you decide not to publish it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I have ever heard is that nothing is impossible. When someone out there in the world, who also seems to be human can do something, why can’t you? in this case, if someone out there has written a best selling novel, why can’t you?
What are you reading now?
I am currently reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. The book is entirely fiction and is amazing to read. I would totally recommend you to try this book out.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I will continue to write and follow my passion. Hopefully, a few years down the lane, I turn out to be the best selling author of my time.
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?
I would take Papertowns by John Green, The fault in our stars and the Collection of short stories by Jeffrey Archer. These three books are more than enough to keep me entertained and drive away my boredom.
