Author Interview Shloka Belde

1. Can you tell us a little about your book? 

This book is the onset of a story that I have in mind, releasing it in parts, of course. The first book captures the story of the three leads set in their own life, in their own ways and paths until something tragic occurs. The book slowly takes the protagonist back in time and witness the incidents that changed her normal life.


2. Is there a specific event that inspired this story or was this an out of the blue idea?

It is a complete out of the blue idea. I remember writing the first chapter after waking up from the exact same dream as the first chapter of the story and the story kept building up ever since.


3. What got you writing in the first place? 

I was an avid reader, liked reading and getting lost in the world of imagination. I started cooking up stories in my head as I kept reading more. I always wanted to be a person who could write stories and bring out the ideas cooking up in my head.


4. What was your impression of your first draft when you read it?

I wasn't thrilled about it as such. I kept wanting more from the story, to speak more to the readers. I wanted the readers to hook to the story, think about themselves in every scene like I did when I started reading books as a kid. I want to be a writer like that.


5. Which part of your poem connects the most with you? Why?

The part where all three stand by each other in worst times. I am lucky enough to have friends stand uptight with me whenever I needed them to and it definitely is the luckiest treasure - friendship.


6. What makes your book the one to read? 

Well it is a story of twists and turns, can keep you hooked till the end. A story that brings out emotions and definitely adds a ton amount of mystery till the end.


7. What was the best advice you got while writing? 

Keep going, you never know how this will turn out. Just keep going.


8. Who’s your all-time favourite author? Which book of his/hers made you fall in love with them?

J.K. Rowling hands down! A woman who showed the world that creativity has no bounds. Harry Potter made me believe that magic and beauty exists in the world.


9. What is your evergreen tip to the writers out there? 

Pen it down, pen down all your thoughts. You never know when the actual story strikes, when all the words start to become sentences and then into a beautiful story.


10. What was your hardest genre of poetry to write?

To keep moving it from present to past, the therapy especially.


11. Do you have another plot brewing? 

Yes, do have the exciting story building up.
