An Author is someone who put the soul in pages, in characters of the story and definitely, it’s the real truth says Author Suyash Dwivedi.
Suyash Dwivedi was born in Uttar Pradesh, India and brought up in Mumbai. He has a degree in Electronics and Telecommunication from Pune University and pursuing Management from NMIMS, Mumbai. His book ‘Secret Lover …Just for month lifetime’ is inspired by his thoughts and few of real life incidents. Suyash works as an Engineer in Doha. He is getting some very encouraging response from the readers and to know more about him and his book I had a confab with him last week, here are the highlights of the interview.
Q. How is the response of your 1st novel Secret Lover …Just For ̶M̶o̶n̶t̶h̶ Lifetime?
We found that it has garnered great reviews on amazon, are you satisfied with it?
A. What else you need when your hard work get appreciated in today’s competitive world! Whereas satisfaction is something which can’t be defined for a writer at least for me, I am so far happy with the response and love all the reader shown for my debut novel. I would request to all the readers to continue the same as it builds confidence & also helps me as an author to keep improving each time and thanks a lot for such great support. Love you all
Q. Tell us something about your life and journey to be an author, how it feels now?
A. An Author is someone who put the soul in pages, in characters of the story and definitely, it’s the real truth. Before anyone, Authors are the one who read their story and live thousand times in their mind. They cry, they laugh and many times get depressed. These all things were part of my journey as well and due to which I make it best. It feels really awesome that hard work of years gets appreciated.
Q. What is your quest as an author? Where you want to see yourself in 10 years from now?
A. I just want to continue writing stories which will be worth remembering and having a great impact on reader’s mind, like after reading my debut novel the story was impactful and many lovers got united, realized the mistakes done in relationship & friendship from their side. After all, that’s why people read novels to be lost in it.
Whereas, the second part is about money. To be truthful in writing, money really doesn’t surprise me or give a kick start to go on. Before publishing the story, I promised 50% of profit earned from my first book will be donated.
Whether it gets pirated or people keep on passing book hand to hand, I would be happy.
So after 10 years, I wish if anyone anywhere ask a random reader have you read Suyash Dwivedi book. I wish his/her answer be yes.
Q. It’s been five months since your debut novel was released, are you writing your next one? If yes then what can we expect from it?
A. After my debut novel, I got lots of messages to continue the same story of two lovebirds ‘Armaan – Jiyana’. Really I can do that, because these characters are imaginary but their love stories can be found in every school, colleges, etc. I just wanna say to my dear readers that ‘Some stories stay with us forever’. I will not promise for the sequel, but yes, I started my second book, which will be based on real-life story of my friend, I hope I can manage to put all his feelings in my work and it would be loved by all the readers and touched their hearts.
Q. As an author in which genre you want to continue writing and why?
A. I prefer to write Love Stories, Adult Fiction and Thriller, but these are not limited, who knows what future planned for you and no one knows what I come up with next. As everyone says Suyash you always do the unexpected. So just expect the unexpected.
Q. Is finding a publisher was a challenge? How is your experience of working with Write India Publishers?
A. Yeah! surely it was a big challenge to keep on going after several rejections for more than 6 months. It was a great experience with Write India Publishers. I usually get nervous so I use to call my publisher every day and ask him what to do? How to do? I really like to say thank you to Atul Purohit for helping me all the way.
Q. What else you are doing apart from writing these days, which is more for your personal satisfaction?
A. I have completed my Engineering in EXTC branch so as a professional I am a corporate slave.
Q. Who are your favorite writers and also tell us about your favorite books?
A. My favorite writers are Paulo Coelho, Rhonda Byrne, Shiv Khera, and Amish Tripathi.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
You can win by Shiv Khera
Scion of Ikshvaku by Amish Tripathi
Q. Who or what is your inspiration to write?
A. Work which takes your sleep and your free time is always fruitful. Stories around me, my family & friends are the ones who inspired me to start the writing.
Q. Any message for your readers and budding writers you want to give?
A. Okay so this part is something very interesting and I like to share something I realized after my debut novel. People keep me asking, How to start? How to continue? I don’t have time? & many more. I just want to say them, dear, please cut the crap and start whatever you have in your mind. Once started, you will transform the story by yourself. Read a lot and write a lot is the only mantra. Keep the target and you will feel the difference.
