Recently, I had the opportunity to interview the wonderful debutante author M. M. John. Her debut novel, The Death of Ink, the first book in the series titled the same, is expected to be published in January, 2014! We had a discussion over her book, her writing and other stuffs.
Hi! Its such a pleasure to have you here! Welcome to my blog. To start the interview, first tell us something about yourself.
Wow! I can already imagine how beautiful your writing is! And by the way I love observing people too. Now lets talk about your book and writing. So, when did you first know that you wanted to be an author? Did you always want to be one?
How did you come up with the idea behind "The Death of Ink"?
Is any of the characters/incidents in your book influenced by real life people or circumstances?
What was the biggest challenge while writing the book?
Did you ever suffer writer's block? If yes, what did you do to get over it?
What were your feelings when you first saw the finished copy of your book?
Are you completely satisfied with your writing or would you like to change something in your story, given a chance?
Are you working on the sequels already?
That's something I really appreciate. I think you should have framed the whole picture of the story before you pen it down! Now tell me why did you choose this particular genre to write about? Who are your target readers?
Okay! I'd now love to hear a few things about you. To start with, is writing your full time profession?
When you're not writing what do you do to relax?
What’s the schedule of a typical day for you?
If your book is adopted for a movie, which actors would you like to play the characters of your story?
What are your favourite books?
To kill a Mockingbird is one of my favourites too! What are you reading currently?
What is your advice for aspiring writers?
Just for curiosity, if you’re ever deserted in an island alone, which 5 books would you pick to carry along with you? And why?
Thank you so much! I loved the chat with you. Congrats on the publication of your first book and lots of good wishes for your success. :)
