Tell something about your book?
First You Plz is a tale of immature girl, Avanti. It is a story of her struggle as she deals with worries of first love. Her journey from realization of the sweet feeling she experiences these days is called Love- her First Love. It is a tale of her secretly nurtured dream and her silent prayer that he will propose her in a very romantic way. It is a tale of her desire that she wants him to say those three magical words to her first.
Although he hasn't shown much interest in her. Still in her heart she keeps on praying, first you plz…
It is Avanti’s journey of ups and downs of her first love and how she exhibits immaturity as she deals with anxieties of her first love.
How much of Avanti is Nisha?
Avanti is an imaginary character and she is completely different from Nisha. Avanti’s innocence, immaturity and her dedication to her love is too pure to match in real world.
Tell us your thought behind this particular book?
The thought behind the book was the fact that young people in love..wait for the opposite sex to take first step.. they want the other one to say those words first ..
This is your first novel? What is your expectation with the book and are you ready for facing critical review of your book?
This is my first novel, the expectation is not very high. Yes, I am ready to face critical review.
Who was the first to read your book? What was the first reaction?
First to read my unpublished manuscript were two people; my younger brother and my friend Santosh Sirsi.. they both liked it and loved the innocence of Avanti
How do you rate your experience with your publisher?
Experience with publisher is very good.. they are very helpful.
Future literary plans?
