Author Interview:

1. What inspires you most to write?

I have become a writing addict and thinking addict. Suddenly, I get to my mind something, I will put it on paper and do Gigs Management. Especially early in the morning at around 3 or 4 AM I get something flash in my mind on Poetic lines and in Literature arena, those are my content for putting on Paper. Even I have lots of patience to write. I am habituated to write. Each day, one time or more, I write. Without writing I don't sleep.

2. What is your favorite genre?

Poetry. Poetical lines, Writing Quotes. Writing Articles. Literature writing. Especially writing in English Language. Second one is writing in Telugu Language.

3. Who is one author you admire if any and why?

I admire many august author stories. Now a days, as of 2020 year, there are big and established authors throughout the World. All authors and writers are powerful. I like all Authors who contribute more towards their line of field writing.

4. How do you overcome blank writing spells?

I wait for Time. I keep it on my mind to write something to fill the gap. I will complete the blank writing spells. Only thing is time. I should get free time. Pleasantness to think. I will apply my mind uninterrupted, so that I can generate new ideas and new content material especially in Poetic line (English).

5. What legal publishing advice can you give?

Everybody is interested to publish their book. But, money part, most authors may not be able to spend on publications. But, if Publishers come forward to publish the books of authors for free, and then they can deduct the publishing and printing cost from the sale proceeds, it is an ideal one. Even Government to give subsidy amount for publishing Authors Books. Sponsors also to come forward for meeting authors publishing costs. Big Corporate

can give sponsorships to medium size Authors. Authors Books are to be bought by All Universities and Educational INSTITUTIONS, Schools and to be kept in all the. Government Libraries.

6. How many books have you written, are any a bestseller yet?

I have published so far 21 Books (but only Sales in India.) I can republish them through any best Publishing Companies for sales throughout the Globe. I have also published 85 E-books at Best sellers, to be frank, poor selling. Reason is wide publicity is needed. Some. Global Media people should come forward to support for sale of my Books. Even few stories and Novels content could be made as feature films and short films for my short stories. I am trying for good sale strategy. Luck also to favor.

7. If you had the opportunity to rewrite one movie script which would it be, why?

Horror Film. I wrote one horror book. THE DOCTOR AND GHOSTS. With ISBN code. But this is a very good story. I can rewrite if Producers come forward to make a horror film.

Also written one novel LADY POLICE. This story is good for commercial features film... Latest story on raids and black money.

Another novel is THE BANK THIEF. This is A full story. Also written full dialogues for the entire story. Script and Screenplay. I can rewrite if any Producers come forward to make a movie.

Many Poems also written. UNIVERSAL POEMS with ISBN code. With these poems, a music an movie could be made. If any Producer is willing to make a musical melody movie like the one SOUND OF MUSIC, (Which I saw during the year 1967), well I am willing to work. But Terms Apply. All my works are Copyright Reserved.

8. What are some difficulties you've experienced in your writing career; how do you handle book critiques/criticism?

Many difficulties I confronted. Patience is needed, as I said earlier. Simultaneously, I have to look after my family. Domestic management. First of all, I should need a good time. Pleasant time. No disturbance. I should have free mind.

9. What are your best experiences in your writing career?

Writing books are not jokes. When a book is published, I forget all difficulties and feel happy. But I am accustomed to write. Writing is my passion. Without writing something, I don't. Sleep.

10. Do you prefer to write in silence and or have some sort sound in the background?

I prefer to write when there is no sound, no noise or disturbance. Cool and calm, I need Total silence. Then only my brain works and effectively. But, please not let, I don't drink and write. I never take any alcohol. I never smoke. I don't take any type of drugs. I am a pure vegetarian.

11. What are some encouraging words you'd give to another author/writer?

Keep on writing, writing and writing. Face criticism on your work. No problem. Practice writing daily. Make writing a good passion. Write with personal interest. Your work one day will be recognized. Don't worry. Your turn will come one day for big recognition.

Basic publishing and printing cost, Publisher will give. Extra amount as Author can put on the original book printing cost. Promotion, ads and distribution, publisher will do as per his working operational system. But author also to publicize and do promotional aspects.

If the content of my book is good, definitely people read. If my Poems and literary work is good, people will read. Readers are deciding God’s for any author books. But, however, authors also to write good content material. Author also should have luck.
