Writing a literary piece itself is a challenge. Reading one is a pleasure. Novels emerged as a means of entertainment to serve the rich and later, they began to be circulated among the masses for awareness.
I write about things close to my heart and I share a few of them through my books. Every author shares a tiny part of them when they write a novel or a book. My first novel will make you understand many things about love and marriages which are experienced by me through observation or otherwise.
The key to writing a good novel remains in the hands of the author. When you will read my book, you will read some sentences said to me throughout my life as an asexual. When you will read my book, you might wonder why such marriages are happening in our society.
