 Sep. 26, 2020

I was privileged to invite Author Audrius Razma for an interview to discuss his latest book Sakura in the Gravity and the inspiration behind it. Enjoy! 


********* 

What's your book about, and what inspired you to write it?
I am planning to write in a sequel I thought of while I was on vacation. The storyline of a sequel I am writing is crime genre, about three friends seeking for a friendship while on vacation to bring back feelings of belonging back from years taken apart from them but are accidentally recruited for most elite and wildest NATO Private Security Squad ever. I enjoy writing autobiography into fiction and I create protagonists from memories of friends from childhood. I am giving the fictional characters their personalities, some opportunities and wild adventures where they're at the end to find the happiness. 

The aforementioned storyline travels from Japan, Korea, United Kingdom to Austria.

Who is your target audience, and why do you think this book will appeal to them?
I am creating stories with interest to convert into anime series. But the actual audience is anyone thinking to see something new in contemporary market. But for now while I am writing each piece after I publish I will develop anime based role play games to allow more freedom for my readers to chose theirs favourite protagonist and create the faith other than I have written. 

I do enjoy listening to people who read what I write and I always look forward to their suggestions to see what they would like to be in what I write for them.

What message do you wish to pass across to your readers with this book?
I am hoping to let others know, to create and write a book does not take you to be born in England and study Masters in English. You're yourself unique with another journey taken in life and sharing the creative side of it will benefit not only you.

What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
I am losing my focus often enough and end up publishing new chapters with grammatical mistakes.

As a writer, is there anything you've learned about yourself while writing this book?
I was exploring phobias and I learned I have fear of betrayal.

For your own reading, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper/hard back books, and why? 
I do prefer ebooks but I do enjoy good print paperback in mind the size and cover with pages quality. I prefer myself soft feel cover and pages for my fingertips and pocket size print to be convenient to carry.

What is your niche genre, and if you were to write in a different genre, what would it be?
I think I would find hard to handle romance genre but I am actually planning in time to come to publish romance fiction from experience I had in my previous relationship.

What books and authors have most influenced you?
I had no strong impressions from any writers but I am huge fan of filmmakers Takeshi Kitano and Guy Richie.

Do you have any more books in the works?
After I complete Sakura in the Gravity, I will continue the sequel and publish in order, Korean Madness, Orthodox Britain and European Identity.

Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
I do enjoy any bad or good comments because I write about crime.

Any advice to new/aspiring authors: I hope you will not give up to write because those who write will live on forever.

How can readers get in touch with or follow you (website, personal blog, social media handle, Goodreads)?

----------------

I am a native Lithuanian and I am writing to help readers rediscover their subcultures. I'm not a seasoned writer yet but I am passionate about building fantasy platforms to share.

I am hoping to be known for as a Lithuanian who can create and write stories in English, and also set a benchmark for the rest of Lithuanians. We are a small population, and with none yet capable to define writing in English at least to my scale and knowledge.

I know there are plenty of writers out there but I am lucky enough to think I am in a position to be known not as the best writer in a category of native English writer, but from foreign language writers who are portraying unique footprints with their own cultural footprints.
