Neel Preet: Firstly, Big Congratulations on your book, “The Mysterious World!” You’ve achieved something remarkably huge at a very young age! What are the responses you are receiving for this book of yours?
Abeer Bhardwaj: I have been receiving congratulatory messages from all over, especially my friends and family. A lot of them are really excited to grab a copy of the book as soon as it is out. Moreover, they’re all encouraging me to come up with my next book very soon which is already 80% done 🙂
Neel Preet: Since it’s a ‘Children’s Fiction’ title with some incredible illustrations, which is a challenging job! Therefore, could you please share your experience regarding the making of this book & the support you received from the Puffins Publishers team!
Abeer Bhardwaj: I think I’ve been really fortunate to have the Puffins Publishers team work with me to make the book much better from standpoints such as its grammar, my bio and lots of other things which they helped me out with, including the marketing aspect of the book. Especially when it came to proofreading, the team was very patient with me as I have a neck of redoing a lot of stuff on all subsequent proofread versions like the current cover of the book is something that I decided to change during the last two iterations of proofread only. Thanks to puffins publishers and the editorial team.
Neel Preet: You have given an interesting title to your Juvenile Mystery Novel, which undoubtedly is catchy too. So, what made you go for this title for your book?
Abeer Bhardwaj: Since the story was about mysterious place and with not so worldly events happening throughout the course of the story, I decided to name it The Mysterious World, a place where mystery never ends. Additionally, I was always fascinated by fiction books and films, this came very naturally to me in terms of plot and the title of the book.
Neel Preet: The illustrations in the book are indeed alluring. Therefore, what was your in your mind that made you go for such rich and beautiful illustrations in your book?
Abeer Bhardwaj: I’ve always believed that minimalism goes a long way and is much more impactful. Therefore, I went for plain black-and-white illustrations, without compromising on the quality of the content, and that according to me is why the illustrations look so attractive and rich.
Neel Preet: Apart from the ‘Juvenile Fictional’ category, from which other genre would you like to contribute towards the field of literature!
Abeer Bhardwaj: The field of literature, according to me is vast. So, I’ve not yet thought about contributing to literature through another genre of writing very strongly but since I’m a lover of art, I think I’d like to contribute to it through poetry. I think poetry is a beautiful medium of expressing yourself and I am really inclined to it. Probably, that’s the reason you might notice few short poetic instances through the course of the book.
Neel Preet: I have read your book and loved the storyline. So, could you please explain the overall theme of your book to our readers!
Abeer Bhardwaj: The overall theme of the book is based on a mysterious place, where the protagonist (Annie) comes across various obstacles before she finds her way back home. The message I want to convey through this is that anything is achievable if you believe in yourself and never lose hope.
Neel Preet: Are there any upcoming parts of this book too? If yes then could you please provide us a brief information regarding the same!
Abeer Bhardwaj: Yes, I’ve decided to write more parts of this book, since I’ve left a lot of mysteries yet to be unveiled, so I think that in the future parts of the book, I’ll gradually unveil them.
Neel Preet: Well, your writing is truly amazing! Therefore, I want you to tell us about some of those writers, whom you follow!
Abeer Bhardwaj: There are a lot of authors whom I follow, because I really find their way of writing interesting, such as JK Rowling, Ron Roy, Roald Dahl etc. The reason for me following them is that their way of writing is simple yet effective and in understandable language. I want to imbibe the same in my own books as well.
Neel Preet: Is there any message, which you would like to convey to your readers? Or any piece of advice that you would like to give to the readers out there!
Abeer Bhardwaj: The message I want to give to the readers is that they should all keep reading, may it be my book or any other authors whom they follow, because reading makes one wiser, and widens one’s perspective of seeing things.
Neel Preet: Thank you so much for answering all my questions. All the very best to you for future and your book too!
Abeer Bhardwaj: Thank you so much for giving this opportunity. I am really looking forward to more collaboration in the future.
