Aurthor's Interview with Santosh Panda

First, let's start with an introduction. 
1. Could you please introduce yourself to us?

Hello. You must be knowing my name so I won't be telling you that. Well, to be honest, I always wanted to be an author. I wanted my story to be heard. I used to write short stories on my blog and my FB page but I had to story to tell and my first book, 'A Year Of Love' is my story. Yes, I too had a love story. Apart from that, I'm a professional wedding photographer.
2. Congratulations on your book. So what inspired you to write this book?
Hmmm... To be honest, my failed love story inspired me to write my first book. I always had an interest in reading books and writing short stories and the rest, I followed my passion.
3. What is the book all about?
As you can read from the blurb, it's not just a love story but a story which has love, friendship and betrayal. A kind of love triangle but it isn't a typical love triangle story. It has a story of a beautiful friendship and how a single wrong decision of ours can change our life completely.
4. Why did you choose this genre for your book?
This is the only genre that I read and prefer.
5. How much time did it take to complete this book?
The story was in my mind for the last 3-4 years but in this lockdown, I completed writing my book. If you consider my diary writings then this book took around 4 years to complete. But on the computer, it took around 15days.
6. What makes your Book Special? 7. When is your second book coming?
Well, first love is more special than anything else, I guess. Very soon, maybe in next 2-3 months. I have already started writing it.
8. While writing did you get any writer's block? What is the Tip that you will give others who are facing a writer's block?
Many times I was in writer's block. I will suggest don't just sit ideally in front of your computer screen. Go and have some coffee, return back, and type whatever you feel like typing. Don't think what to write, close your eyes, think of the memories, and start writing. There is always an option of editing.
9. Apart from being a talented author, what are your other hobbies?
Well professionally, I am a wedding photographer. I also love traveling. I have also done a 4000kms road trip from Odisha to Mumbai via Hyd., Bangalore, Goa.
10. Last but not the least, How did you feel, while giving this interview?
Great. It felt like I have someone to share about my life and my book. Thank you for considering me for an author interview.
