Q&A with Swathi Nair:
When would be the next part of the series get released?
Waiting is a part and a prominent factor of every successful series. We all are familiar with the thrilling experience of releasing each Harry Potter book. You can expect all of my books from the series' Argans' by every December as a Christmas holiday gift to readers, which is meant to conclude the series in 2027 with the final eighth book. So yes, the second book will be releasing on this December.
With such a great response from the first book itself, will you go for any publisher to publish the rest of the books?
There was a time which I dreamed of my books getting published with Penguin or other renowned traditional publishing. However, Amazon KDP made me the person I'm today, and I will encourage aspiring writers to go with KDP as you will solely get to promote and edit your book at your pace and interest. Freedom is what every writer needs in their authorship, and if a publisher good enough to come up with such extended support to my authorship, I might sign up with them. With Amazon KDP, I get major royalty, but it's never about royalties or money but about acceptance and reaching the right readers.
Writers' Readers book club's choice award winner of 2020?
When I started off my authorship, I should say that I never thought of having a reader's support for my writing career. Writers' readers is a National based dedicated readers community destined to give writers the right privilege. Twenty-one admins lead by a Chair, Mr. Sam, are the pillars of the community. As of now, the community laid the foundation in eleven states and growing together with readers activities. These admins are the people who now help me to thrive in my writing, and I have also been initiated as their admin in Kerala. The community founders decided to have a choice award for each year, and they inaugurated it by choosing my book as the 2020 award holder. I'm in debt with the team Writers' Readers, and a special thanks to Satya, one of the brand ambassadors of the community, for contributing the extended support and love to my authorship on behalf of the community.
'Argans' Series to a movie?
Oh! I wish! I believe that it's just a matter of reaching the book in the right hands to get it produced into a movie. Waiting for the right call at the right moment.
