These books were the best books I have ever read.
Starting from the twilight series to chronicles of narnia series the authors creates a new world of fiction. The last two horror stories by Justin cronin and Amy cross were the best horror stories I have ever read. They had brought a new concept in the paranormal world.
When did you first start writing?
I first start writing when I was 16 years old. It was my favourite hobby in my leisure time. I didn't thought at that time that I will publish my books one day. It was only a hobby and now it became my passion.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I spent most of my time reading books and playing video games. I have to complete my studies correspondingly so I my whole day is occupied with my studies and writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest story is the first book of the guardian series, a new reigns of love
This story is about a girl liri, Who Was In Her First year of college. She met a boy Alex and they both fall in love with each other. But after sometime she came to know that she wasn't a pure human but a descendent of a powerful sylph and also was a prophesied girl. This whole series is about her adventure from the starting of her college to turning point of her life, to find that crystal and to free her father from the hostage of tasha. It is a very adventurous and romantic story. This series is only for adults. As I am also a reader I know what my readers will want from a paranormal fantasy story. And I wrote this story by keeping that in my mind.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I loved to read books from my childhood. I had read various types of books. Actually I had never thought that I will publish any book one day. My hobby to write stories started when I was 16 years old. At that time I had written some small stories, and my English were very bad at that time. As I grew my English became strong and my stories became more effective. One day my older sister read my story and advised me write a new story and try to publish it. She told me that there's a good carrier option in that. So, I stared to write again. And this time I published it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am very thankful to smashword. This site helps me a lot to publish my first book. Because of this site i was able to publish my book.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me the greatest joy of writing is that by this we can share our imagination and thoughts to everyone. It's the best way to reduce tension and stress from my life. It helps me a lot to increase my concentrating power.
