My journey as an Author - Pravin Agarwal
My first novel was ‘8 Course Meal for the Soul’. I wrote it in three months and self-published it immediately in the year 2017. It was a motivational novel. I was not satisfied with the end-product and thus withdrew it from the market within one month. My actual journey as an author began after that. I then read so many talented Indian authors and learned from them. Simultaneously, I began writing my second novel ‘The Girl in the Dream’. It took me almost one and half years to write it.
Next, one year went into finalizing a suitable traditional publisher, editing by a professional editor, proofreading, finalizing marketing plan, etc. Finally, in March 2020 the novel got published. Since I withdrew my first novel from the market soon after its release, I consider ‘The Girl in the Dream’ as my debut novel.
It took me four years of dedicated efforts, patience and focus to make a mark. I am highly grateful to all the readers for their overwhelming response. A big thank you to all for the immense love and adoration. It feels so good when readers expressed their adoration for the book, unique storyline, narration, its characters and its intensity.
