What inspires you to write?
I have been keenly involved in designing illustrations & graphics as a hobby. Sometime back i saw my 5 year old kid trying to interpret few of my images to create a random story, which didn’t make too much sense, however gave me a direction to take my illustrations to the next level. This is where i got the inspiration to start creating picture books, which would be short stories, and simple reads for kids, with well illustrated pictures that the kids would love exploring.
Tell us about your writing process.
I create my story as a concept which appeals to me. This is then discussed out with people around me, kids, friends with an aim to get a opinion as well as a reaction. Post which is get down to writing an initial script which then gets split across my storyboard, and evolves as i create my illustrations for each scene. I create all my illustrations in Corel Draw directly and keep adding to both the image as well as the content as i move forward.
What advice would you give other writers?
If you have a concept and the time just get going without thinking of the results. Do it for the passion that burns in your heart keeping in mind your audience. If you put in all your heart in your books your audience will assess your writing with their heart only.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Being a first timer to the writing fraternity i wanted to keep this process simple. I had read about KDP, hence this became my obvious choice. With the kind of reach this medium had, and the simplicity of the overall process to get your book online, i decided to go ahead with amazon.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
As a concept its doing well, however yet to evolve in places like India (where i belong). Parents are concerned about exposing children to the digital medium for reading considering the excessive amount of radiations kids today get exposed to through various gadgets around. A strain on eyes is another area of concern for may parents i know. Additionally, schools still believe that children need to be able to feel the book they read to be connected to reading. There are many other challenges that the digital book publishing medium faces, which also gives it the tremendous opportunity to plan for higher growth and tapping newer markets. For indie publishers like me, this medium is a dream, which my audience make come true. I look forward to grow as a writer through feedback and reviews this medium provides,and aim at giving my readers quality reading material.
