Interview with Reshave Dimri

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Well, this is my first book i could remember and published it as a professional author.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I am usually doing my day to day work like going to office, spending time with my family, hangout with my friends in weekends and watching movies and surfing net.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I don’t read books a lot but whenever I do I just go to the Google or amazon and buy my eBook, but from now onwards I will search it in Smashwords.com first.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Generally I don't read much but I do I read lot of stuff and when I say I read lot of stuff I am not talking about my school or college books and I am talking about stuff which interest me or stuff which I like to read. But if you talk about first book than it was “ Wings of Fire: An Autobiography of APJ Abdul Kalam”, the best thing about this book is that don’t read success stories it will give you nothing read failure stories, failure stories of great people, success full stories, read how they failed, how badly they failed and still refused to give and believed on themselves and their dream and eventually after cross each and every hurdle they rise and become successful, trust me on this this really had a good impact on me and encourages in every time. I have read failure stories of JK Rowlings, Jack Ma, Colonel Sanders and many more, they refused to give up.

When did you first start writing?
2016 I guess, I deciding to start writing my first manuscript because my mind was curious and imaginative and when I sometimes share my thoughts with my friends they usually appreciate and encourage me to write a book, initially I ignored them but when I realized that what’s wrong in being so expressive and being yourself so I started writing book without giving any fuck to anyone else.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story of behind my first official or latest book is like this that some time back I was reading some famous love stories and in my research I found that there are many famous love stories in India also and some of them are real life love based too and part of the history and culture of the region. I realized that today’s generation which are so sophisticated and so modern yet don’t even heard about these stories or love birds and as time passes these stories are getting faded with the sand of the time from the memories of the people so I decided to write a book on these tell and here I came with my first book “Great Love Storys of India”.
