Interview with Vaibhav Reddy IVN

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Honestly, I've never expected such a transition from print to digital. Yet, I had to travel with the flow. But, I haven't got any special device to read ebooks. I choose whichever device I have near me.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I am yet to discover any such successful technique, which could skyrocket my book's sales. Maybe, this interview could serve as one.
Describe your desk
I believe in writing where it suits me, and that could be anyplace, except the restroom. So, there is no specific desk to be described.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Kurnool (India), which isn't big enough to be a city or small enough to be a town. And, the politics, rather than the place itself influenced certain aspects of my writing.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing short stories when I was about ten. I wrote a novella in my eighth grade and wrote my first novel in ninth grade. It took me considerable time to realize that writing's my passion.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Psychological thrillers have always amazed me, be it movies or books. They prodded me towards writing THE MEMOiR, where I wanted to explore a new psychological aspect to give the reader a refreshing experience.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Rejection is the best motivation for most indie authors; my case ain't any different. I am the boss of my work; this independence is what every writer deserves.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is watching my thoughts develop into words and not getting stuck in the middle.
What are you working on next?
I have got a lot of concepts on my mind right now. But my busy schedule in med school keeps me from giving much attention to writing. Hopefully, I may come up with a sci-fi or detective novel for my next.
Who are your favorite authors?
Without a second thought, Mr. Dan Brown is my favorite writer. Just like Sidney Sheldon's "Doomsday Conspiracy" inspired him to write, "The Da Vinci Code" inspired me to write, not forgetting the role of Mr. Steve Hamilton's "Blood Is The Sky", which played a similar role.
