Writing a book has always been a dream since the time I got hooked to the first book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey. And after many years, I managed to publish my first book just a week back.
I never thought that I will start with a fictitious story book but that’s exactly where I started from. My first book is called the “The Mysterious Rocks of Village Yana“. I was motivated to write this book because of my elder son, Jairus who is 8 years old now. For sometime now, he’s been reading a lot of story books but it’s never enough and sometimes it’s a struggle to find good books for him to read. Since both my sons enjoy adventure stories, I mostly make up fun stories before they go to sleep. I love to see their excitement when I narrate a story to them and hence decided to write an adventurous story book as a gift for Jairus’s 8th birthday last week.
It’s hard to explain the emotions they went through when they opened the gift wrap; they were absolutely thrilled to know that their Father wrote a book for them. As a father, there’s nothing more I could ask for. I think I found my inspiration for writing more books – my boys. It is the best way to connect and communicate my heart with them.
“The Mysterious Rocks of Village Yana“ is a story of two boys who lived in a village nearby a forest. For many years the people in the village believed strange stories of some mysterious rocks deep in the forest but no one was permitted to go there because they believed alien creatures resided there. The boys out of curiosity and also because of the recently occurred events decide to venture out into the forest and what they discover changes their lives completely.
