It’s time for another author interview. Today, with us, we have Anuradha Prasad, who currently lives in Mumbai, India. She is a prolific writer and blogger, who believes in treating her reader base with inspirational and success stories. In addition to writing, she loves traveling and exploring people, and watching movies in theaters. Let’s catch on more conversation…what she has for us today.
What is the genre of your book? (For example, fiction, poetry, fantasy, romance…)
I basically write inspirational stories, more broadly you can say success stories. Yes, it does not come in any of the above mentioned genre, but still those stories are kind of fiction.
Please shed some light on your books.
I have written two books so far, and the third one is on its way to be published. The first two are, like how main characters fight through all odds to reach their goals. As I said earlier, characters put through a test to eventually achieve their destinations.
The third one is a collection of soulful short stories based on human emotions. I am sure it will inspire readers as well as strike a chord with them emotionally. All the books are very close to my heart.
Where do you write from? Do you go to some specific country, state or city to write?
I write right from my home! From Mumbai!
How much time do you take to finish writing one book?
For my two previous books, I took exactly one year for each book.
What was your biggest learning experience throughout the publishing process?
Need to have perseverance and patience!
Looking back, what did you do right that helped you break in?
My writing is flawless. What I have is a flowing language. The depth of emotions and intensity are compelling. The characters are as real as they get. I think these things were right that helped me to break in!
On that note, what would you have done differently if you could do it again?
Nothing specific of any sort. I am quite happy with my work!
Any best piece of writing advice from your side that we haven’t discussed?
Be true to the story and to yourself. Put in all that you have and don't worry about the results.
Something personal about you people may be surprised to know?
I always dreamt to be a supermodel. Well, instead, I have become a super mom, wife, and writer.
I am working on my third book, Rain drops and Caterpillars. It is going to be a collection of interesting short stories.
