Interview with Bala Karthikeya Pavan Guda

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a guitarist and I do boxing as well.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Any ebook will be categorised by genre. So depending on the mood I will select a genre and when it comes to reading a book....I'll analyze the style of the author and can decide the worthiness of the content.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I wrote is the one that I am looking to publish now.
What is your writing process?
The message you give through the book is of main concern. At the same time giving an entertaining progress and making the readers feel the real life emotions through the words needs to be kept in mind. A twist is not expected generally...so you give one....it'll be added benefit to the story....
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I read a Telugu romantic novel.....that's quite good experience.....I couldn't recollect the name though.....but I still remember the content.....
How do you approach cover design?
The story should show an inner meaning in the cover page. It should be creative to attract attention of the readers but not that much that the same might mislead reader's view.

Living the moments that I'm writing just to feel how the reader will feel
