Mutual friends introduced me to Nigama. She writes poetry. I’ve been asked many times to read poetry and it’s so personal most of the time I don’t like it. However, Nigama’s poems spoke to me. Her books are artful and tasteful. I’m quiet excited to have her on my blog!
Tell us about yourself
I’m Nigama RV from India. I come from a family of writers. From a young age, I’ve been soul-bound to fantasies and developed a love for literature in any genre: Poetry, Dark Fantasy & Romance, Paranormal, Thriller and Sci-Fi to name a few. As long as it has a tinge of romance and adventure, I want to read it. I opine books as images of writer’s imaginations and love a good HEA.
My obsession is my pastime with my cute Li’l niece, Laasya. I’m addicted to chocolates and Pizza, and a forever believer in a carpe diem.
When did you know you wanted to be an author?
I started writing at a very young age, my first poetry was published when I was 7. I’ve been writing since then. I developed an habit of writing my emotions in the form of poetry, that’s how I started scribbling. But never really thought of publishing until two years back.
What genres do you like to read? Are those the the same genres you write in?
I read everything I get my hands on except autobiographies. Until now I only wrote poetry, Paranormal romance, dark romance, LGBTQ, young adult, age-gap romance, and societal based novels. Working on a fairytale now.
Is your book for adults, young adults or children?
Depending on the genre, my poetry is for everyone, societal and YA for young adults but dark romance is purely for adults.
What is your current release or protect?
My recent publication “ECHO — BEAT OF THE HEART” is second in my poetry collection called “SOLILOQUY”. And now I’m working on paranormal romance and third poetry book scheduled to be released this year, hopefully.
Tell us about the key characters
Poetry — it’s all about feelings of emotions one goes through in their lifetime. Everything from birth to death, love to hatred, acceptance to rejection and loss and lost.
Mostly any key character from my books especially fmc is strong and independent woman. I make sure to write someone who can fight and take the dragons on her own and save her prince rather than waiting for her prince to come save her.
What is your blurb or synopsis of the book?
Echo — Beat of The Heart
Book 2 of Soliloquy
The songs of the summer
The whisper of the winter
The drizzling rains and blossoming flowers
Everything would be beautiful,
If only I have you in my arms
One last time…
Gravity took hold of me, this time though, it’s centered at the utter perfection, You…
Share an excerpt
I’m imperfect, but You…
Glisten like a star when I’m lost
Guide me like a polestar to my destiny
Shine all around me, as I fight my demons
You’re the light to my darkness,
Embracing my flaws,
Submitting to your love…
I maybe made of imperfections
But am, perfectly imperfect!!!
Do you have a favourite scene?
Every scene I ever wrote or I write is my favourite.
What advice would you give a beginner?
Never give up. No matter how hard it is, never ever give up. Don’t listen to anyone but your characters they know better. Just do what they say and I promise you won’t regret it.
