Interview with Shazia Parveen Author of Home Cafe:a novel
Today, we will be interviewing Shazia Parveen who is an inspiring author. Shazia has recently written a great
novel so let's see what this author has to say about her book
Team WordBite: Can you tell us something about your new release?
Shazia Parveen: Yeah!
Sure. But, before that I have some questions for the readers. Have you ever
fought with your siblings for silly things? Have you ever made secret plans
with your siblings or friends about which your parents were unaware? Have you
ever loved someone in your life or do you really love your brothers and sisters
whom you never expressed about? Have you ever lived just a common manâs life?
If yes, then this book is truly meant for you. You can say that it is a
complete package of emotions, drama, comedy, tragedy and of course immense
love. The main story revolves around brother and sister who loved each other.
The story tells how few other people came in their life, certain things
occurred and what impact it made on the strong bond of the siblings.
TWB: What difficulties
you faced while writing this book?
really a nice question. The only difficulty that I faced while writing this
book were my brotherâs behavior. I had to fight and grab my laptop from them
to write it down. I had done all the writing work secretly from my family. That
was the most difficult task.
TWB: Tell us something about your publishing journey?
is nothing much to be called as a journey. I myself couldnât understand how
quick everything happened. Few months back, I participated in the Word bite
contest on Your Quote. Luckily, I was declared as the winner and they offered
me a book deal as the winning prize. I asked some time to get ready with my
work. Then I came back, contacted them, send them my manuscript
and then everything was done by them. So, all the publishing credits go to word
bite team. Thank You so much.
TWB: Any book you wished you had written? Why?
SP: I wished I had written a book about the life of my
family and me because I wanted to express what I never did. I wanted to show
the existing harsh reality of few relations. But I dropped that idea as it
would be very difficult and painful for me to go through those tough moments
again. So, I picked up this positive fictional piece of work.
TWB: How will you take if someone did not like your work?
SP: Different people have different tastes and choices. I
canât force anyone to like and appreciate my work. I hope most people would
like it. If not, then I would take it positively, ask them the reasons and try
for the better work next time.
TWB: Tell us a quote which changed you in some way?
SP: I canât mention any quote, but few lines by a close
person have changed me to some extent. It was something as below:
âIf there would be someone else other than you, I
would have definitely left him/her for the blunder that you have done.â
This was something that proved my worth for that
person and my book is my heartiest apology to him.
TWB: Do you write on a daily basis like blogging or
SP: Yes, I write on a daily basis on Your Quote. Recently,
I have joined Word bite and I also write there. Besides these, I have my
facebook page too, which holds some of my unsaid words.
TWB: Where do you see yourself in next five years?
only, before you all â The readers. I hope you would have been familiar with me
till that time.
TWB: Any advice for the budding writers?
SP: Have faith in your potentials and the Almighty God.
Just pick up the pen and start writing what your heart feels. The only care
that you have to take is the grammar, spellings, vocabulary and proper
arrangement of words in case of poetries.
TWB: What should your readers expect from you next?
SP: The sequel of Homecafe â Homecafe2. This story is not
complete yet, and there is much more to tell about the story of Dhruv and
Khushi. So, part 2 is must. Hoping for a good response for âHomecafeâ.
