Author Collaborative

In Conversation With Manasi Singh

“Reality doesn’t always give us the life that we desire, but we can always find what we desire between the pages of books.”
―Adelise M. Cullens

It is an open secret that I’m a lover of romance. Combine romance with comedy, and I’m sure to pick up the book. So, when somebody who knows my taste in such books, recommended Meet Me Under The Stars, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.

I wasn’t surprised at all when the book ended up in my Best Reads of 2021.

My admiration for the author increased manifold when I realized this was her first attempt at romance. I just knew I had to understand how she manages to write varied genres. That’s when I approached her to be a part of the #AuthorCollaborative. Today afternoon, I finally had my chance to pick her brains about how she goes about her creative writing process.

Of course, she read my book too. So that she could ask me questions of her own. Here’s what she had to say about my latest, Under the Mistletoe & Other Stories.

My questions to her were majorly about and around her writing and how she markets her books.

Manasi, on the other hand, wanted to understand how I transition from writing between short stories to novels and vice-versa. Here’s a glimpse at her questions to me.

The questions to these answers took up over half an hour. It was an intense, honest exchange of information and knowledge sharing. At the end of it, I had picked up a few tips and tricks of the trade. Before ending the session though, we also did a fun rapid-fire round to end the session on a lighter note.

Here’s a look at my quirky questions to Manansi in this segment.
