I got an opportunity to interview Suyash Dwivedi, author of ‘Secret Lover …Just For ̶M̶o̶n̶t̶h̶ Lifetime’. Let’s get to know what her novel is all about before we start the interview ?
A Little about the novel
One can get ‘Secret Lover …Just For ̶M̶o̶n̶t̶h̶ Lifetime’ in every school and colleges, The story is plotted in such a way that one always wanted to know what will be the next. The real life story which everybody know except her.
In the book ‘Armaan’ and ‘Jiyana’ are strong characters, their growing friendship flies in the face of the conventions in their busy and full of ambitious life. Armaan always helped Jiyana, in her problematic life. He always thought, she would start loving him someday, but after 7 years he came to know the time and patience he was investing were all in vain, but their destiny was something unbelievable…
Not just a love or a problem novel, ‘Secret Lover …Just For ̶M̶o̶n̶t̶h̶ Lifetime’ explores the loyalty in love, the so-called ‘Samaj’ and respect towards the family decision.
Yet something more Armaan & Jiyana want to tell you…
‘Secret Lover …Just For ̶M̶o̶n̶t̶h̶ Lifetime‘ is story of Love, Friendship, Victory, Fate and LIFE.

We have put together an interview for him today.
Q.1) How does it feel to be a published author?
A.1) Well it totally feels awesome to get publish in such a competitive market, were publishers get more than 1000 manuscripts every week / month. I really feel lucky, that I got such a wonderful platform for my first book.
Q.2) What inspired you to write such a mature book?
A.2) I wanted to write a story when I was studying in 11th standard and I shared this to one of my best friend, but due to less time I was not able to start that, and precisely I wasn’t knowing how to start that, but what I had in my mind is to write a story. Then I started writing it when I was in my 3rd year of Engineering college, but after writing 2 page of story, I got busy in different projects, and study related stuff. I was totally forgotten that I had already started something writing. So finally when I shifted to Doha for my first job a month later, I got a news that one of my friend is in love with someone, but he can’t express that. This is was the point which strike me hard and I started writing with reference to first 2 page that I already wrote 1.5 years back, which is now part of my debut novel.
Q.3) You are so young and yet you managed to write so deeply on relationships. Would you like to quote any personal incident that made you think on the same line?
A.3) Love and relationships are totally two different things as per my view. Some people are in relationship but never in love whereas on other part some are deeply in love but never in relationship like my book character Armaan & Jiyana. It’s a love story of 90% of people around me. Some were feared to lose their friendship and some were feared to try, and I penned it down.
Q.4) How differently does the book deal with the emotions of guys or girls?
A.4) The day I started receiving reviews it was totally awesome, whether it was from guys or girls. There were many reviews by girls who loved the character of Armaan and realized the mistake they have done during college days. I was happy after reading their message at least book helped them somehow. Guys loved the character of ‘Gauri’ best friend of Armaan. So, I hope it was balanced both the side…ha ha ha…
Q.5) Would you like to give any message to aspiring writers?
A.5) Its not tough and its not easy though. Just start it… let it flow and it will go on. Read more, Write more.
Q.6) Does diverse education help in writing?
A.6) Yes it do.
Q.7) How difficult was it to approach a publishing house with your manuscript?
A.7) It took more than a year to get published and after 20 rejections.
Q.8) How do you create characters? Are they inspired from real life?
A.8) Creating characters is one the most inquisitive thing and I love to do it. Yes many of the characters are inspired by real life like friends, cousins, crush, etc.
Q.9) Describe, in one word, the feeling when you held the first copy of your book
A.9) There is no word which can define my happiness when I hold my first copy.
Q.10) Whats Next?
A.10) After my debut novel, I got lots of messages to continue the same story of two love birds ‘Armaan – Jiyana’. Really I can do that, because these characters are imaginary but their love stories can be found in every school, colleges, etc. I just wanna say to my dear readers that ‘Some stories stay with us forever’. I will not promise for sequel, but yes, I started my second book, which will be based on real life story of my friend, I hope I can manage to put all his feelings in my work and it would be loved by all the readers and touched their hearts.
