Welcome to Day 11 of the Romancing September Across The World Blog Tour. The question I put out to all of these authors was “What challenges do you face in writing romance in today’s society?”
Don’t forget to go over to Rosie Amber’s page and check out her page too. I’ll put the link at the bottom of this post.
Today my guest author is Swarupa N Ovalekar and I want to thank her for blogging with me today. Here is a little about Swarupa and her book The Blue Eyed Prince Of Natlife.
What Challenges do you face writing romance in today’s society?
“As a first-time romance book writer, my biggest challenge was creating a story with an interesting, sexy and emotional touch. I wanted my readers to identify themselves with the characters…to lead them to a fantasy land where they can fall in love with my novel’s hero or heroine and forget their stressful existence for a while.
In my e-book, The Blue-Eyed Prince of Natlife, although “sparks fly between the hero and the heroine” from the time they first meet, there is a strong play of emotional tenderness and physical chemistry between the two. This is what romance book readers love to experience and this is exactly what I want to give them.
All said and done, once my manuscript was complete, I went for digital self-publishing having full faith in my writing. Getting recognition for their work is every writer’s greatest dream and I’m no exception to it. Still, if I’m able to stir feelings of passion within my readers, trapped in their tiresome routine, I know I have done a great job!”
Intrepid traveller, polyglot and author of the Epic 3-Book Series on Mexico (“Discovering MEXICO”, “MEXICO: The Country, Its History And The Maya World” and “A Guide To Mexican Cuisine”) and the romance fiction novel, “The Blue-Eyed Prince Of Natlife”.
Besides that, I am a passionate foodie, a huge fan of salsa and ballroom dancing, a great lover of world history & culture, cosmology and more…
A girl from Mexico City comes to Mumbai, discovers the joys of caring and sharing in a large house with seven other international trainees and falls in love with her suave Indian boss.
26-year old Mexican, Sara Velasquez, is the new international trainee at the corporate office of one of India’s top multinational companies, Natlife. Her blonde hair and good looks have always made most men treat her with benign condescension, unwilling to accept her managerial abilities. Experience has taught her not to trust men for this reason, but her tall and handsome Indian boss, the 27-year old blue-eyed Sid Oberoi, is different. He doesn’t question her intelligence only her impulsive nature. She finds herself battling a deep and irresistible attraction between them only to succumb to it whole-heartedly.
A past incident has shattered Sid’s trust in women. Whenever his girlfriends get too close or serious, he bolts. He’s not interested in commitment. So why does he harbour strong, unfamiliar feelings for the feisty Mexican? On learning about the bitter experiences of her past, he’s determined to ensure that she doesn’t get hurt again. Why does he feel so protective about her?
When misfortune strikes, it brings them both closer than ever. Sid offers her a job in his new business and room in his house. But, is he ready to offer her a place in his heart?
