Interview with Raja Sharma

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I have spent most of my life reading and teaching college students. My greatest joy of writing lies in sharing my thoughts with others.
What do your fans mean to you?
I willingly accept both criticism and admiration. Fans or no fans, I will continue to write, because that is the only means which provides me the greatest consolation or reward.
What are you working on next?
I am involved in several writing projects, including literature guides, short stories, poems, and novel. Some of them are near completion and some might take a bit longer.
Who are your favorite authors?
Jane Austen, Balzac, Mario Puzo, D. H. Lawrence, Charles Dickens, Francis Bacon, Jonathan Swift, Charles Lamb, Rudyard Kipling, George Bernard Shaw, and Bertrand Russel are among my favorite writers, but I often read modern writers when I need a change.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When I sleep I take it as a chapter closed, with a hope that I might wake up in the morning, and when I wake up in the morning, a new energy and a new world happens to be there. I take it as a fresh start and continue my work.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Mostly reading or watching movies.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
In the past five years I have read more than I had read in four decades. Thanks to ebooks. They are my constant companions on my laptop, my mobile, and on my tablet. I wish they had been introduced four decades earlier.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was titled "The Buddha in Me."
What is your writing process?
I don't plan. I simply concentrate on the subject I am going to write about, and then I begin to write a kind of rough manuscript which is generally disjointed anecdotes or narratives. Having completed the first draft, I leave it for some time. I read it again and then rest for a while.
The following day, I start writing the final version, with a lot of additions and removals. My writing process is quite simple. I do teach literature, but while writing I show all the literary techniques the door so that I could be free from all the restrictions and norms. My writing is spontaneous and smooth. I leave it to my readers to judge what I have written.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, it was a novel "Rich Man Poor Man." It kind of changed my life. I began to think broadly about life, leaving the confined world of traditions and customs which had been imposed upon my by my family, my teachers, and my society.

Before that I had read hundreds of short stories, but that was done mostly for fun or under compulsion.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to convey some ideas of the writing which my readers are going to find in the book through my cover.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
War and Peace, Gone With the Wind, The Godfather, Mansfield Park, and She. I learned a lot from these five books. They kind of proved to me my informal university of the world. Though there are several other books which I could mention here, but I believe that these five books ought to be read if you are seriously into reading.
What do you read for pleasure?
Reading is my pleasure, for I am always pleased. My work is my hobby and there is not even a single moment in my life when I am displeased or bored. Everything that is in the shape of letters, words, and sentences, attracts and inspires me.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My epub reader on my mobile phone.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Advertising through social sites and emailing.
Describe your desk
It is an ancient oak wood desk, bought by my father about 75 years ago. It is five feet and three feet in size. It is always cluttered with heaps of books and incomplete manuscripts....
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the mountains at a place called Nainital, in India. Nature was an essential part of my childhood and I have been greatly influenced by my childhood surroundings: rivers, mountains, brooks, animals, and trees, etc.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing about twenty years ago, in 1996.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It is the story of a man who had been compelled to see the period in history which he would have never accepted to witness if he had been given a choice....
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I did not want to go from publisher to publisher, begging them to publish my book...
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has introduced me to the world, I have published several books up to this day and the financial gains have been improving. More than the financial gains, I have been provided greater access by Smashwords. Thanks to Mark and his team.
Write your own question here!
Why does one choose to write?
Why does on choose to write?
I don't know the specific answer, but in my case it was spontaneous. Having read hundreds of books up to the age of forty, I suddenly started writing and here I am still writing, with a hope that I would continue to do so till my last breath.
