Indie Author Interview: Dr Thomas Abraham, Author of East to West.
Following the exciting launch of Dr Abraham’s memoir, East to West, I caught up with him to ask a few questions about his writing, the self-publishing process, and how much it means to him to see his book live on the Amazon bookstore.
He also sent me the most lovely testimonial.
“I have been carrying this book in my heart for the last 15 years. It seemed like crossing Siberia on a bike – almost an improbable journey to make.
The moment I contacted you, you took over the control as a superpower. You were the positive driving force giving me the inspiration to fulfil my aspiration. I very much appreciate the timely guidance and thought-provoking prompts inciting my excitement in transforming my surreal dream into subtle reality.
I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for the excellent professional guidance in my venture. I can safely and soundly recommend you to other prospective writers. “
Congratulations! Your book is now available on the Amazon bookstore. How did it feel to see it there for the first time?
Thrilled and euphoric.
Can you tell us a little bit about your book and why you wanted to write it?
I have extensive life experiences spanning different continents – pleasant, pungent and painful, which I wanted to share with others.
Have you always been a writer / wanted to become an author?
Yes. I have been writing articles for 25 years.
What made you take that leap and publish your book?
Although I have been striving to get the book out of me, due to workload and time constraints, I never got around it. The current COVID-19 crisis triggered me into writing this book.
Have you any more book plans in the pipeline?
Some plans for another one; but I want to recover from the aftershock of releasing this book.
What advice would you offer other aspiring authors who want to self-publish their books?
Believe in yourself and persevere; it is only a matter of time if you stay focused on your aim.
I have been gobsmacked by the rapturous applause of some who read it on Kindle.
So, we all can do it!
Thanks very much, Dr Abraham! All the best with your fantastic memoir!
