Mythological fiction an underexplored genre in India: Kevin Missal 21.2.2018 General News
Mythological fiction remains an underexplored genre in India despite the market being awash with books based on mythology, promising young author Kevin Missal has said.

"We have 33 million Gods in Hinduism. When you dig deep, you'll find so many diamonds. A lot more needs to be explored," he said.

It might surprise you to learn that Danielle Steel - who has written 167 books and will publish six more in 2018 - spends between two and three years on each title. "Sometimes I just sit and stare into space and think about a book, or a twist in a book, or the kernel of an idea, and I follow the thought for a while and see where it goes, and try to envision it," she explains. "I know when an idea is right for me when it just clicks, and I can tell in my gut its the one." But she doesnt immediately dive into a manuscript. "I make notes for a while before I start work on the outline. The notes are usually more about the characters. I need to know the characters really well before I start - who they are, how they think, how they feel, what has happened to them, how they grew up." Steel says the idea for her new book, Fall From Grace - which enters the hardcover fiction list at No 2 - was sparked by real-life conversations. "Ive heard touching, poignant stories about women who were treated abominably by ...
