Neel Preet: Firstly, Big Congratulations on your book, “Mystiq Lynk” Well, can you please share your experience about making your work come into the form of book!
Abhishek S Malve: Firstly, I would like to thank you for conducting this interview. Now coming to my experience, I would say that it was exciting for the most part. I struggled a bit initially, as I had no idea how to write a novel. I had to learn a lot of things about writing to get started. Also, I was working full time back then, so had to figure out how to juggle it with writing. But once I began writing, I learnt how to manage time more efficiently. I used to write after office hours and over the weekends. And following this approach, I was able to finish my book.
Neel Preet: What inspired you to write this book? What was the impetus behind this work of yours?
Abhishek S Malve: I like consuming content a lot. Be it in any form- Movies, web series, books, or podcasts. I like stories. When I was first struck by the idea of Mystiq Lynk, I felt like this kind of story hasn’t been told before. And that feeling itself inspired me to write it and tell a new kind of story which is a hybrid of multiple genres.
Neel Preet: Your book title, ‘Mystiq Lynk’ is very catchy! So, can you please explain the reason for going with this book title to the readers?
Abhishek S Malve: (Laughs) I chose it precisely for the same reason you have mentioned- because it is catchy! Also, I thought that this title aligned well with the theme and tone of the book. That’s why I chose it.
Neel Preet: While writing the book what was your mind-set? What are some of the learnings that you gained from this work of yours?
Abhishek S Malve: Since this is my first novel, I had no idea about how to write it. So, I had to learn a lot about plotting, constructing a scene, dialogues, and even the basic thing like how to construct a sentence properly so that it conveys the desired message. After finishing the book, I would say that I have learned all these things and overall gained much more clarity than I had.
Neel Preet: A part from mystery thriller & suspense, in which other genre would you like to contribute?
Abhishek S Malve: Sci-Fi! For sure! I love science fiction and feel that there’s a lot more can be done in this genre. Sci-fi plays a crucial role in my book- Mystiq Lynk and would love to explore it more.
