really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea
or experience and conveying it into a book? My
core inspiration is my love for storytelling. Right from a very young age,
I began seeing stories in everything around me. I loved to delve deeper
into the “why” of everything that I studied around me. When at the age of
ten I was introduced to the history of WWII, it gripped me. It intrigued
me greatly and I always looked for answers in between the “textbook”
knowledge. I found the textual knowledge to be carefully curated and
pushed towards us to make believe a certain reality. When, I learned about
other unheard stories and life events I couldn’t contain it within myself.
It pushed me to write and narrate. I felt like I was an outlet for those
unheard voices and untold stories.
is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader? The book is primarily a narrative based on true stories
of the WWII with a different perspective. It talks about the German
perspective to war. It digs deep into the history and childhood of Adolf
Hitler and tries to understand the events which led to making him what he
was. It also delves into the theory that he escaped from Berlin. What the
book does is, deliver a final sense of justice as an uncanny band of
German soldiers set out to finish him and deliver justice to the world. My
target reader is anyone who loves a gripping tale. Anyone who is
interested in a good read can pick up this book.

Even though the world is moving towards digital, the physical aspect of putting ink on paper will take you a long way. There is something about your hands brushing against the parchment; it leaves a part of you into the story. Have that part of you live in that story, only that will make it unique.
trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book
publishing industry is heading? The
publishing industry is definitely changing. With everything going digital,
it is both good and bad news. It is good because many upcoming authors can
now get around the gatekeepers of the publishing industry. At the same
time, with the availability of so many publishing options, it also dilutes
the content value somewhat. On the whole I am very excited for the future
of the publishing industry and I think it is heading in a very positive
7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours? My book somehow reflects the current times and I consider that to be a “Zeitgeist” moment. Keeping the current political scenarios of the world in mind, my book is a good reflection of the world that has gone by. It acts as a gentle reminder to act and not react. Anyone who craves a little literary adventure and thrill should definitely pick this book. I assure you a never before seen perspective.
