The Literature Today: Welcome to The Literature Today, author. Congratulations on the release of your book. What responses are you getting from your readers? Please share your experience with this book.
Author: Thank you so much. The response is overwhelming, and the readers are appreciating fresh new style of descriptive narration.
The Literature Today: What encouraged you to become an Author?
Author: I have always loved writing and when more and more people began liking my casual write-ups. I decided, why not. Let us present it to a larger audience in the form of a full-length story.
The Literature Today: What are your favorite topics of writing? Please tell us something about your interest areas in literature.
Author: I am an avid reader, I read because I love to read. And therefore it is not restrictive. I read and write across genres (fiction). It is just that I started off with Romantic suspense.
The Literature Today: We were hoping you could tell us about some of those writers who have inspired you and whom you follow.
Author: Now, as I have already told you, I read from various genres. There are so many prominent writers and their individuality which impress me, that I can not pick just one or two. It won’t be right on my part. But I must acknowledge, they all have left their indelible impression on me with their writings.
The Literature Today: The title seems different and catchy; how you decided it? Please let us know the story behind it.
Author: As I have mentioned in my other interviews that writing ‘ONEwithin…’ was a breeze, but coming up with a title that befitted the story as a summation had me sweating. After many considerations and rejections. I decided on ‘ONE within…’. It has the essence of the storyline and sums up the cover to cover-theme beautifully, whichever way you look at it whether in a romantic sense or the conflict within ourselves.
The Literature Today: What are your achievements so far? Tell us something about your writing career.
Author: Well, this was my debut novel. I have also started blogging and taking up writing projects. The journey has begun, I guess.
The Literature Today: What is your current goal in writing career? How do you see your future in writing?
Author: I have started my ‘BlogSpot’ and a professional ‘Book reviews’ platform where I provide genuine and detailed reviews. I also help aspiring writers with their writings from cover to cover. Young writers or aspiring writers can find more details regarding this on my website: www.bobbygeorge.in
The Literature Today: Are there any other books being worked on by you? Please let us know about your future projects.
Author: Yes, I have another full-length novel coming up soon and then there’s a collection of short stories in the publishing pipeline.
The Literature Today: How you see Indian writing in the 21st century? What changes do you see in the modern way of writing? Do you feel it has changed over the time?
Author: The 21st century has some outstanding writers and they inspire and entertain equally. The writing itself has not changed but definitely has evolved over the years. I think technology has also affected the way people write and perceive in modern times. With the growing ease of publishing, more and more new authors are emerging, and that is a good sign. But on the flip side, shallow writing has also mushroomed.
The Literature Today: How easy/difficult it was for you to publish your book? What message would you like to give to budding authors?
Author: Publishing has never been so easy and it has opened doors for the young aspirants. But my only advice to them would be to read more and work on their skills before pitching it to a publisher, because in the end what you write and how you write are the only things that keep you afloat in the literary world.
