‘Let the Game Begin is reaching to readers hand and catching a massive positive hit by reviewers.
Let’s catch the writer of the book Sandeep Sharma.
Sandeep Sharma, made his debut in the writing industry with ‘Hey Dad! Meet my mom’, the book which is still a hot topic of discussion amongst readers. He is currently working on his start-up venture named ‘Author Paradise’ that works for the benefit of Authors to provide them well-organized online & offline publicity. By education, he is a civil engineer.
AMIT- Hello Sir! How are you feeling today? Second time on same blog. You remember HDM3 interview?
Sandeep- I am good Amit and yes I do remember our previous chat for ‘Hey Dad!’. I am pretty excited for today’s interaction.
AMIT- An Engineer, A writer and Author Paradise what is next?
Sandeep- MBA, Banker and then Nach Baliye’s Judge! *LOL*. Well seriously I have no idea of what is going to happen in future. I never think for larger goals; I am a kind of a person who lives in present and love to make it as best as possible.
AMIT- There is a Quote “Behind every man’s success there is a woman”. But who is/are behind the success of Sandeep Sharma?
Sandeep- There are many. Let me take the liberty to write about this question in detail.
Firstly I would say my mother. Let me take an incident here. Writing sometimes becomes tedious and being an Engineer, your parents expect a lot from you. It is not that your parents will whole heartedly accept your passion taking over your professional life. That was a cold night (or day). Clock was showing 4 am and I was writing a very interesting chapter of ‘Let the Game Begin’. I was totally engrossed in my writing, so left the track of time. At 4 am, I realized the cold around me. The moment I pulled my eyes off the screen of the laptop, I saw my mother standing with a cup of coffee. I do remember that she was the most excited person to know that the first draft of LTGB was over that night.
Secondly, I have my sisters. Deepshikha Sharma, looking and fighting each day with God to pave the path of success for me, from above the heights of sky and Kavita Sharma, fueling my confidence each time, it gets over.
Another lady is Tushti Bhatia. She is having a magical touch over me. Since the day, a copy of HDM3 has reached her, everything seems to be so easy in this literature field. She is like the back bone of my career.
Last but not the least, my editor, Dhivya Balaji. I have never seen this kind of enthusiasm in anyone before for LTGB.
AMIT- ‘Let the Game Begin’ is it Thriller? Tell something about the book.
Sandeep- Two kingdoms, Chaturanga and Sarprakt, separated by a mystic mountain range are at war with each other since ages. Chaturanga, ruled by King Viratha, is soon bestowed with a dynamic heir, and the whole kingdom is drowned in rituals and festivity. On the other side, Sarprakt is executing a cruel conspiracy. King Viratha, crippled by the conspiracy, urges the mysterious man of the mountain to devise a method to recreate the conspiracy and that gave birth to ‘The Game of Chess’. Serial killings shock the nation as the police are rendered clueless. The killer leaves behind a trail of chess pieces with a strange message. Random people are murdered. Connoisseurs of different fields – History, Chess and the Security forces – have united as the next intended victim is the most powerful person of the country. How is Chess involved in the whole scenario? How will they find a man who died 4000 years ago? Can a person defy the laws of nature? Does history really repeat itself? Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
AMIT-What were your expectations from book?
Sandeep- Every book is like a child for an Author and for a parent the biggest teacher are their own children. So yes, this book is teaching me a lot and the most important thing among them all is that in India, readers love the content. I was frightened that would people accept anything other than love story or not but I am surprised to see the response. The first edition of the book is almost gone in 1st month only.
AMIT- What was the hardest part of writing this book?
Sandeep- Arranging the different timelines and keeping the flow intact to make this complex story a simpler one for the readers. It took me 3 months to just prepare the flow charts of the events.
AMIT– How was your experience with publishers?
Sandeep- Without the help of a publisher, a book can never succeed. Inspire India Publishers, despite of being a newbie, knows exactly how to help an author to grow. On every single step, they stand tall with me and supported in every way possible. I have never seen such a transparent way of working before.
AMIT– Is there any other genre that you would work on in future?
Sandeep- I promised one thing to myself that I will never stick to one genre ever. My next would be inspirational one, then horror and lastly I want to write an Adult fantasy as well.
AMIT– And the last one, you seems to be so mature, talented and passionate for your work. From where you get so much passion, energy, eager to work and work. Share with us.
Sandeep- Reviews. The feeling that somewhere, someone, at this present moment is reading your work and fantasizing the story you have wrote, is the source of energy that drives me to write more.
