Author interview – by Angel Cox (FWG)

September 2nd, 2013

Aymaran Shadow, a paranormal thriller that essays the chilling story of a woman destined to be violated in every lifetime, has opened to enthusiastic reviews by critics and readers alike. Angel Cox, a writer and book lover, interviews Hemanth Gorur, author of Aymaran Shadow. Angel is a sixth grade English teacher at Watauga Middle School in Watauga, Texas, and is very proud to be a part of the Writers’ Anarchy team, an offshoot of the Fiction Writers Group (FWG) on Facebook. Writing is her passion, but meeting new people and finding out their stories is also something she loves to do. Angel’s hope is to bring some of the best writers together and share their real stories, only as writers can tell them. Angel’s stories can be found at http://www.dayinthedark.com. She can also be found on Facebook.

Angel Cox: Hemanth Gorur, a mysterious man from India, has intrigued us with his in-and-out appearances on Fiction Writers Group. It took a bit, but I have finally wrapped up one of the best interviews I have had the pleasure to be involved with. Pour a cold drink, and let’s take a look into the thoughts of the man behind the mask.

Tell us about India.  It is such a mystery to a lot of us.

Well, India’s right now in the top three fastest growing economies, averaging 8% growth for most of the last decade. So, it’s no mystery that people today the world over want to know about it, and many already do know more about India than Indians themselves! Gone are the days when the country was seen as “Oh yeah, that developing country somewhere in the . . . Indian Ocean?” That “Developing Country” (this term really gets my gut!) is now kicking some major ass like you wouldn’t believe. People come here for “medical tourism”, which is a big thing here.  They come for the topnotch surgery/healthcare and take in the incredible sights to boot.

She teaches creative writing through the Adult Education Program, and enjoys connecting with other writers through blogging.

Yawatta Hosby: I would like to welcome my special guest Hemanth Gorur, author of Aymaran Shadow. Please enjoy his insightful interview.

Do you have any advice for other writers trying to get published?

For aspiring writers, I’d say, do not write with the market in mind. Of course you need to do your basic research in terms of which genres are crowded and where are the white spaces. But you don’t want to be a me-too. Your work will soon get commoditized. If you want to set yourself up for the long-term, don’t be risk-averse but steel yourself for the hard grind ahead.

Hi, Hemanth. Thank you for taking the time out for this interview. It’s great to be chatting. So, shall we begin?

Yes, pleasure. Nice to be talking to you too!

Tell us a little about yourself and your background.

Hmm . . . I’ve been a management professional all through. A decade and a half as a consultant and career strategist. I’ve taken to writing full-time only recently. Back then, I used to write when (and if) I got the time. Now, I sleep when I don’t write! I think that sums up the transition.
