Ruchi Vasudeva was a winner in the Mills & Boon India PASSIONS contest last year. She brought out her first novel BOLLYWOOD FIANCE FOR A DAY in August, 2013. She has now followed it up with YOU CAN’T FIGHT A ROYAL ATTRACTION and that too promises to be a great read. I caught up with Ruchi to ask her how it feels to be an author the second time around to and find out of the myth is true – is the second book really harder than the first one?

Is it really true, Ruchi, that the second book is harder than the first?
Well, yes and no. The story and concept were harder to sort out but that might have been an individual problem in the story. It was hard to make everything satisfactory to the logical left brain which kept on pointing out the holes in the story. The writing itself was quite easier. Though that might be because I was on a deadline! 🙂
Is this book a follow on from the first?
Somewhat. The heroine is the sister of the heroine of the first book. So the family background is the same. But you don’t need to read the first book to read it. It’s a story complete in itself.
As you are a working doctor with a growing family, how do you manage to find time to write?
It’s difficult but getting easier because we’ve all learned to adjust. The family is a dream in coping up and I too have picked up speed so things get done a bit quickly. That is not to say the dust mites don’t accumulate or I respond at the first call but I’m working on getting there 🙂
Can you sum up your latest release in a tweet sized sentence?
Yes I guess. It could be my next tweet! Oh well here goes…
Rihaan…a scriptwriter with a past. Saira…nursing her shattered dreams and broken heart. Can they resist an attraction so obviously wrong?
That’s all that can fit in a tweet-size. I checked *smile*
Plans for future releases? Anything to share?
Harper Collins India is going to be releasing a short story of mine in an anthology, hopefully by New Year. There are a couple of other ideas which I’m working on for next books.
