Here is another book I’m featuring as part of the b00k r3vi3w Tours book tour circuit. This one is titled Metro Diaries, and the author is Namrata. I conducted an interview with Ms. Namrata, which follows:
Give us a short synopsis of your book.
This book is about love and that’s it. Love has various forms, some of acceptance, some of dejection, some of hurt and some of joy – I have tried capturing all these forms in my 20 stories in Metro Diaries.
How did you research your story before you began writing your book?
The research I did was more on the era I have tried recreating in these stories as some are older than me and I wanted to be very accurate with the detailing.
How were you inspired to write this story?
Love, is the inspiration behind it.
What advice can you offer other authors?
Write because you want to and not because you have to. That is what will make the whole difference.
Who designed your book cover?
A dear friend of mine called Sridevi did. She has been with me throughout my journey till her and this was her present to me on my debut book.
Are you working on other projects?
Yes I am currently working on my completely solo novel which is 80% complete. Hoping to scout for publishers too for that one as well.
What is your favorite genre?
Relationships – if there is any like this but even Drama is fine with me.
Who is your publisher? Can you tell us about your publishing experience?
It has been published by Revelations House. It was a challenge definitely as publishing in India is not a cakewalk but the joy of holding your book in your hands I guess makes it all worthwhile.
What is your favorite quote?
If you are crying because the sun has set down then your tears might not let you see the twinkling stars.
Tell us about the characters in your book? How did you come up with the setting?
The characters in the book are very common and simplistic. They could be me, you or anyone of us for some point of time in life we would have loved someone and experienced one of these emotions for sure. As an investment banker I travel a lot and it is during these travels that I started witnessing love stories that touched my heart.
Namrata is a prolific blogger known by the name Privy Trifles in the blogosphere who romances life through her writings and aspires to make love the universal language. She dons various hats between that of a contributing author to 7 anthologies a reviewer for leading publishing houses an editor to various books and a columnist.

Having mastered the nuances of finance till recently she also held the title of an investment banker closely to let it go to embrace her love for writing fully.
