LiFT: Tell us about your book, the journey of writing it and its content.
Ashwini: Well honestly I didn’t thought of writing a book and becoming an author one day. This idea came all off a sudden when I was scrolling instagram and watching ads and one writing contest ad came up frequently. I didn’t thought that it will be the publishing house which will publish my first book and I just tried my hand on writing and eventually I got good marks and then I started participating in writing contests and I won cash prize in one writing contest only then I got little confidence and decided to publish my own book.
The content of this book is little dramatic thriller story you can say.
LiFT: Why you chose this title?
Ashwini: The concept of the story is based on this title. This story is about two friends whose lives changes eventually and it shows how the universe and the karma has his own way to take revenge from us.
LiFT: When did you realize that you want to be a writer and what’s your inspiration behind it?
Ashwini: Well, honestly it might sound childish and funny but since my favourite actor is Sidharth Malhotra so when I was watching his movie Ittefaq it just came as a random thought to me that one day even I will write a book as his character was a novelist, I know it sounds funny but still he is an inspiration for me. His hardwork and dedication inspires me a lot.
LiFT: Where do you see yourself ten years down the line in the world of literature?
Ashwini: Well ten years from now, I see myself as a established entrepreneur, but if you talk about literature field then I see myself as a well established author with great stories and my own publishing house. Also I would like to try my hand on blogging too and become a blogger also.
LiFT: How much do you think marketing or quality of a book is necessary to promote a particular book and increase its readers?
Ashwini: Well I prefer quality of the book the most as it’s the quality of the story that attracts the most to the readers. I personally believe that if the quality of the book is good it will fetch and attract the readers so I would say that marketing is important but quality of the book is the most important for me.
LiFT: What is the message you want to spread among folks with your writings?
Ashwini: I just write to express my thoughts and feelings but one message that I would like to spread with my writings is that “Never Give Up”. No matter what genre I write or what situation the character is facing I will always show the protagonist as a winner.
LiFT: What do you do apart from writing?
Ashwini: Well I am also a Tarot card reader and I have my own Tarot page on instagram named Healing With Ashwini and also a YouTube channel with the same name so I am busy with that and also I want to become an IAS officer so preparing for civil services exam too.
LiFT: What are the activities you resort to when you face a writer’s block?
Ashwini: Well since I am a movie lover, I watch a lot of movies to be stress free and it calms my mind a lot. Also listening to music helps me a lot whenever I am upset or feel low and can’t decide what to write ahead. Also I love colouring, though my drawing is terrible but I am excellent at colouring pictures.
LiFT: What if your story will be adopted as a movie? Whom would you want to work as a director or actors in it?
Ashwini: One and only my forever favourite Sidharth Malhotra. I would love to see him as an action hero so I would definitely write a action thriller genre for him for sure.
LiFT: Are you working on your next book? If yes, please tell us something about it.
Ashwini: Yes currently I am too busy with my work commitments so my next book will take time as right now I only have a plot so all I can say is that my next book will be a murder mystery thriller.
LiFT: What are your suggestions to the budding writers/poets so that they could improve their writing skills?
Ashwini: I would just say one thing that just write to express your thoughts and emotions and be yourself and eventually your writing will improve.
