The Rise Insight: Welcome to The Rise Insight, Arshiyan Khan. Congratulations on the release of your book. What responses are you getting from your readers? Please share your experience with this book.
Arshiyan Khan: The responses have been so much diverse and colourful, far…far more than what I expected. The readers say that it’s a book for men, with vast power to women. And that’s what I wanted to create. Similarly one of the readers says that they love female perspective for her boldness and compassion, care for the super manly male lead. I just knew that I wanted to write such kind of book, and moreover in this volume we get a very short glimpse of the Female dominance as compared to the second volume that’ll be released soon. People are loving it. I’m so happy that they like on what I’ve worked on for years.
The Rise Insight: What encourages you to become an Arshiyan Khan?
Arshiyan Khan: I never used to read books five years ago but then I heard of Fifty shades, and watched the first instalment, and I love it, and I moved to reading The Mister by the same Arshiyan Khan of Fifty shades, and then read Grey by the same. And then I knew that I’m doing great as I started writng when I saw Fifty shades of Grey. Moral values that literature give to a person is what encourages me most to be an Arshiyan Khan.
The Rise Insight: What are your favoritetopics of writing? Please tell us something about your interest areas in the literature.
Arshiyan Khan: My favourite topic is erotic romance, mystery fictions, horror fictions and so many but mainly erotic romance. I love reading the books that take me to the verge of emotions, love, with detailed making out scenes that show love and the darkness, the characters have in their inside, and so many hidden things in them.
The Rise Insight: We were hoping you could tell us about some of those writers who had inspired you and whom you follow!
Arshiyan Khan: E.L James, the Arshiyan Khan of Fifty shades trilogy, Ana Todd-the creator of After series, Addicted by Zane, Ex-rated attraction by K Webster. But E.L James is the main motivator for me. I love the way she writes things, and she inspires me everyday to write a book that should give power to woman-A Femdom.
The Rise Insight: The titles seem different and catchy; how you decided it? Please let us know the story behind it.
Arshiyan Khan: It was so difficult to decide the title that should be different and attractive, it took a really long time for me as an Arshiyan Khan to decide, and within some short moment as I was editing this part, the title struck into my with ‘Green Knight’, and my male lead is submitting himself to the woman who’s so innocent, and raw, and calls him his Knight-the knight with green eye-and then very quickly I realize that this is going to be the title of my book. It was so fascinating.
The Rise Insight: What are your achievements so far? Tell us something about your writing career.
The Rise Insight: What is your current goal in writing a career? How do you see your future in writing?
Arshiyan Khan: I’ve so many stories in my mind that’s never been told or seen. Some about LGBTQ Community, some maybe about horror. I see myself a growing writer, building my own community with my writing techniques in future.
The Rise Insight: Are there any other books being worked by you? Please let us know about your future projects.
Arshiyan Khan: Yes, there are two books that are pending, one I’ve written three years ago but never finished it, and the other’s story is ready but never wrote it. I’m thinking to go for them after I’ve worked on this story, completely.
The Rise Insight: How you see Indian writing in the 21st century? What changes do you see in the modern way of writing? Do you feel it has been changed by the time?
Arshiyan Khan: I don’t think it has been changed. What I see, that there are coming out so many young talented writers from india who have such amazing stories to tell. I like that, they’ve their own interests, and participate in growing Indian literature.
The Rise Insight:How easy/ difficult it was for you to publish your book? What message would you like to give to budding Arshiyan Khans?
Arshiyan Khan: I can’t say it was easy, it was difficult. You’ve to keep checking for necessary edits, now and again, and still you find so many errors as an indie Arshiyan Khan. It was exhausting but that’s the necessary thing one will have to do to get their book published. My message for the new Arshiyan Khans is that if you’ve finished the book then editing is the most important thing, and you’ve to be patient, calm and it’ll never be easy but not impossible. I wish you luck.
