Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
One so far, working currently on Book #2 and #3
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
College Shortcuts is the result of my many years of struggles as a young adult when I was desperately working on completing my college degree. I was ultimately successful is completing my four year Bachelors degree for a low cost of under $7,000. Since then, I’ve been deeply disturbed by the general rising cost of college education in the United States, the frenzy of student loan programs and the misery it causes to millions of young American students. That is my primary motivation for writing this book, to relieve the students of the burdens of unnecessary student loans, so they can easily be successful with college while spending very little money.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Though this is a non-fiction/ self-help book, I often got very emotional recounting personal memories while writing this book. So I had to proofread the book multiple times to ensure that the book stayed objective to its goal of providing a DIY step-by-step guide, and to ensure that it did not delve into other strong emotional topics!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris – this book showed me a whole new world outside the 9-5 and re-kindled the hope in me that I could live life on my own terms.
What are you working on now?
A Memoir of my College journey, followed by a Career self-help guide.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I would like to consider BookBub for advertising, when I have the resources to do so. Other than that, I’m still experimenting!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep writing a series of books, do not be dejected with the initial outcome of the 1st book. Learn from experts but know that you need to run your own tests and experiments to see what is relevant to your niche and to your particular book.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
We all make mistakes, so its important to learn from our mistakes and to have the courage to move on forward without delving on our failures too much!
What are you reading now?
A Time travel science fiction and a non-fiction on creating the perfect lifestyle.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Writing more and more………!!
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?
Autobiography of a Yogi (Yogananda), books on spiritual inquiry (Osho), meditation, and another on astrology to figure out when I would make it out of the deserted island!
