Meet Rohini Kottu, Author of Method to My Madness the new exciting poetry collection Released on the 28th June 2020.
-Now, Rohini, I understand your book is a print book as well as an ebook. Tell us more about yourself and your book
My Book is a poetry collection based on real life stories and experiences of people whom I came across a period of two years. Their stories have been presented in the form of poetry. As an aspiring psychologist, the process of writing this book was very enriching. It offers me an opportunity to understand people and their perspectives.
-Interesting! What inspired you to write this book?
People and life in general, inspired me to write this book. I wanted to share the stories of people we walk past but barely notice.
-Great message! What was the main challenge you faced when creating your book?
I wanted to present stories in the form of poems. So the most difficult part of writing this book was to stay authentic to the story and achieve poetic effects at the same time. I wanted each story to be true to itself.
-Sounds pretty difficult! How do you stand out from your competition?
My book is a blend of observations, stories and poetry. I was not writing about my feelings or myself but about others, which is a little difficult to achieve with poetry. It was only possible because I thoroughly and objectively analyzed each story I came across, before writing down the lines.
-You are a hard worker! Are you a huge reader yourself? And what do you usually read? Any favorites?
Yes, I am a huge reader. I enjoy fiction as well as nonfiction. I prefer thrillers but this preference keeps changing. And as a poet, I do read poetry too. My favorite poem is “Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost.
-I am a big fan of thrillers as well! Tell us, what is your next step as an author?
I dream of releasing a poetry book that really combines the domain of mental health with poetry.
-Interesting! Do you have any tips or advice for other aspiring indie authors?
All I can say is believe in yourself and your craft. The right audience will find you.
-Very that! Is there anything else you would like to add?
Yes, it is amazing to see the tremendous support that I have been receiving as an independent author. And hence, I would really like to thank all my readers!
That’s awesome, thank you Rohini for those great insights! We all wish you the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing your next piece of work.
