I’m an accidental author. I began writing on a lark.

A few years ago, my mother kind of bullied me into “doing something for myself.” It was all very well to take care of house and hearth and read my way through the local library, but she thought I needed to expand on that lifestyle. It was one of the rare times in life that I actually listened to her, and my reward was a vocation that has become my passion.

I love it: writing. I love it even more than reading, and I love to read. A book is like my fifth limb, following me everywhere.

So, I’d found my passion and very quickly (about a year) produced a manuscript that was good enough for an Indian publisher to offer me a contract, which I accepted and IT'S YOUR MOVE, WORDFREAK! became real. I was officially an author.

And that’s when I seriously started to understand the book business. Not just the writing side of it, because that comes easily to me, but the publishing side of it. And the more I tried to understand the business, the more things started to go wrong.

Labels were everywhere: what type of writer is she? What type of books does she write?

Ah! She’s an Indian writer who lives in New York—her writing is too western for India. South Asian writer who writes contemporary romance—her writing is too cultural for the US. Wait! Now she has a fantasy manuscript to pitch and a women’s fiction story? That’s a no-no for a newbie. Stick to one thing. Build your platform.

I tried very hard to fit myself into a slot. I tried on all the labels available to me, but none fit me perfectly. And I wasn’t happy. I am an Indian writer, and most of my stories are about Indian people and the Indian culture. That’s what I know. But my writing style isn’t Indian. It’s global. That’s how I write.

I was born and raised in India, have lived in Belgium, and now I live in the US. Change is a constant in my life, and it will reflect in my writing. My voice changes from book to book. My themes, genres, all change from book to book. And that confuses the agents and publishers, and makes my getting published very difficult, if not impossible.

I keep asking myself if I should write what they want or what comes naturally to me? Does anything other than a good story matter to a reader? Should it?

Ultimately, I’ve realized I want to…need to…must write for myself. And that my story should please me first and foremost, or my reader will know me for a fraud.

Write the right book and the right audience will follow.

Re: Falguni Kothari | The Write Audience

Although I normally don't read this genre of book, your latest
book sounds like it's going to be a good read. I've put it on my
TBR list, and am looking forward to reading it this Fall/Winter.
Congratulations on your latest book, and I hope that it does
well, as well as your writing career. As far as your writing
goes, I feel that you should write whatever comes from your
heart, as long as the final product itself is good. The
publishers should be happy with that - not trying to put you in
some sort of category right away. There are plenty of Authors
out there that write books in several categories. The bad part
with them is that not all of them are good at it. It sounds like
you have so much coming out of your heart, and I think that it
has to do with your life experience, that you feel you need to
put it in writing. If the publisher can't see that, then perhaps
it's time to find a new publisher who would understand your
heart, as well as your written word.
