Interview with Chirasree Bose

Q.1 Tell us a little about yourself? Perhaps something not many people know?
A. In today’s time, it’s difficult to say things about yourself, which others already don’t know. Thanks to social media. However, I believe what many people (even some of my own) don’t know is that I am an utterly stubborn, headstrong, and strong-willed girl. If I am truly passionate about something, there’s absolutely nothing or nobody that can stop me from pursuing it.

Q.2 Are we going to read more from you in the near future? Any new project you’re working on?
A. Definitely. I keep writing. So, you should expect more books from me in the future. However, how soon that would happen is not known to me. I am working on the plot of my next novel. And, this time it wouldn’t be a novella. I would write a longer story. And, definitely a thriller.

Q.3 Where do you get your ideas?
A. I like to observe people, their expressions, and emotions. I believe that I can gauge their personality pretty well. It often helps me get unique ideas. Also, you would notice (if you read my novel) that I love to dive deep into human emotions and feelings. That’s my shtick.

Q.4 What advice do you have for writers?
A. Don’t look for advice, and follow them blindly. Listen to your heart, make your own rules, and try hard to adhere to them. Build your own writing style.

Q.5 Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
A. I want my readers to be happy, entertained, and intrigued. But that, in no way, means that I’d write what others believe in. I write words that I believe they need to read, hear and realize.

Q.6 If you could tell your younger writing self-anything, what would it be?
A. It’s okay if some people don’t realize the value of your passion. It’s okay if they laugh it off. Stick to it. You’ll get your reward eventually.

Q.7 What are the most important magazines or websites for writers to subscribe to?
A. I don’t have much knowledge about this. However, I would say in order to build a reader base, create your own blog, write regularly, and interact with other writers. WordPress is a good option.

Q.8 What is the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
A. Well, since I have done that in my first novel itself, I know how tough it is. Read novels, watch movies, interact with many people of the opposite sex. Try to understand their personalities, mentalities, and way of talking. Then take the plunge.

Q.9 How do you select the names of your characters?
A. I love this part of the whole writing process. I spend a lot of time in selecting the names. According to me, they must be unique and spur instant emotions in the readers’ minds.

Q.10 Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
A. I do. Because they excite me. I like to know how well others analyze my work. Good ones make my day. And, bad ones make me patient.

Q.11 Does your family supports your career as a writer?
A. A lot. They are always there by my side. They are as excited as I am now that my first book is published.

Q.12 Do you believe in writer’s block?
A. No. I believe in not giving it much importance. I write every day. Even on days when I am very tired, stressed and unhappy. Stop talking about it. Focus on writing instead.

Q.13 How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
A. This is my debut novel. However, I have written some short stories (free eBooks) on Juggernaut. They got a lot of love, recognition, and support from my readers. I believe Done With Her is my favorite because it’s special in many ways.

Q.14 Do you have any unique and quirky writing habits?
A. I think I am a bit too crazy when it comes to writing. I can forget about the entire world around me when I am doing it. It gets the better of me at times.

Q.15 What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?
A. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

Q.16 What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?
A. I haven’t come across any as of yet.

Q.17 Who edited your book and how did you select him/her?
A. I asked my friend who happens to be a teacher by profession to review my book. She took care of the editing and proofreading part.

Q.18 Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?
A. I wish I could meet Agatha Christie. I am a huge fan of her. I keep reading her detective stories. She’s my inspiration.

Q.19 What is your favorite book and why?
A. Crooked House by Agatha Christie. Do I really need to say why? It’s mind-blowing. Lucid Dream 1 by Swati SinglaI read this book during my college days. Trust me, it still casts a magic spell on me every time I think of the male protagonist.

Q.20 Share the experience of your journey so far?
A. This is the best journey I have ever taken. It’s frustrating at times, yes, but it gives me immense happiness to introduce myself as a writer. Honestly, I don’t think about the destination. The journey is what matters.
