Author Interview: Jaskaran S. Dhillon
About the Author
I’m 21 years old guy from India. I grew up in Sri Anandpur Sahib, Punjab. I’m studying Food Science & Technology (Hons.) right now. I’m also having advanced diploma in Communication skills. I have only written one book yet named Secrets As Legacy. I like writing mystery thrillers. Apart from books, I love writing songs. My passion for writing rose when I wrote my first song. I’m also the founder and editor in chief of B Louder Magazine, a digital magazine focusing on photography, literary, lifestyle, fitness, health, art, fashion and home improvement.
What inspires you to write romance books?
Secrets As Legacy – Tale of the Mysterious Heart is my first book. It is loosely based on my experiences growing up in a small town and on my college life. Real life experiences actually inspire me to write books.
Tell us about how you write:
Firstly I write one sentence summary of the book that I want to write. I build up characters in my mind then make an outline and divide the whole book into chapters and start writing. I only prefer using M.S. Word for my writing.
Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I believe characters don’t have to be likable but do have to be interesting. They should be well-developed in your mind. It is only possible if you interact with them. So yes, I do talk to my characters.
What advice would you give other writers?
Trust yourself. Don’t get panic about the whole process. It's really simple. Don’t wait for inspiration to come to you. Don’t write a story because you think it might be a bestseller. Start a list of all your crazy obsessions, the things that wake you up in the middle of the night and write about it. Just believe that you can do it and always scream out loud.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I went with vanity publishing because I thought that was the best thing to do.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing is bright.
