BOTM - First Kiss & Broken Promises {Wattpad}

First Kiss & Broken Promises
Author: Neerunni
Genre: YA Romance

Wattpad Book Blurb:
First Kiss can be earth-shattering and so can ‘broken promises’, especially when both are sealed and delivered by the one who has held your heart in the palms of his hands since the day you turned a teen. 

Seventeen year old Divya Narayan is a high-spirited young girl with an adventurous streak in her, who doesn’t think twice before taking a risk. She learns very early in life that broken promises by ones you love equals a broken heart. So she makes two promises – Never to fall in love and never to break a promise. 

One fateful night four years ago, Aryan Diaz not only broke Divya's heart but also her trust and their unique bond of friendship. When the charming heart-breaker returns next door to Divya, he holds more than a key to her locked heart; he has answers that can set her free to break the promises she made.

1. If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?

I love mysteries so going into the future would spoil the greatest suspense of my life. So back to the past it is, just to knock a few people on their heads including my own for some wrong choices that could have been avoided.

2. If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose?

I would love to invite PG Wodehouse, Alfred Hitchcock, Marilyn Monroe, Hitler, and Gandhiji to dinner, put on some rock & roll, serve them some spicy Indian food, sit back and observe. Who knows, we might have some great tales coming out of this dinner. Probably even re-create part of the History (in a good way).

3. If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

I have an inherent problem moving anywhere. I like my chair in front of my comp way too much so teleportation would be a handy superpower to have :D

4. Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.

I’ll do five better – I redirected this question to readers (wattpaders) of FKBP who had this to say about the book:

@ashutoshmoru – First Kiss and Broken Promises is a book that perfectly encapsulates the whole journey that is a romance novel, it is perfectly written, with each character playing an important role in the story, the romance is very real and passionate and will make your heart sing. It is a book that will take you on a journey of passion and the urge to find true love.

@Juvi_Black - Not being a typical High School Teen-Fiction drama, this book can win any reader's heart by its unique characters and obstacles :)

@RoseSunshine - FKBP is a sparkling novel that makes me laugh, cry, pull my hair as I feel myself in it, feel the emotions the characters do.

@Shruthii - You can relate to Divi's character most of the time bcoz she really is like normal teenager. I loved the book and recommend it because it's worth your time!

@voyageavecmoi - First Kiss and Broken Promises is a great story that delves into the depths of the mind of a girl who is confronted with the man she vowed never to love. The stakes are high, the emotions are strong, and you'll be rooting for Divi's happiness by the end.

5. Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?

I am currently focusing on completing First Kiss & Broken Promises before my month long Summer vacation in May. FKBP on wattpad is only the first draft, my first attempt at fiction. Rest of the year, my main focus would be to polish it up to make it publish-worthy.

Besides FKBP, which consumes my writing time, a couple of ideas are in the concept stage; all I have is the blurb and prologue. The first chapter of the sequel to FKBP is ready, which will be much lighter and sexier (hopefully). I want to write something fun after the intensity in FKBP. You know, just cool off a bit before I jump into the deep end again with something more serious.

6. Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?

There are two to three songs that encapsulate different moods of FKBP including Clarity by Zedd and First Kiss by Faith Hill, but one which is close to my heart is ‘Set fire to the rain’ by Adele. I can’t stop listening to it :-)

7. Who are your favorite authors of all time?

The list is long so I am going to try and keep it short here – Jane Austen, John Grisham, Jeffery Archer, Robert Ludlum, P G Wodehouse, and Robin Cook.

8. What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?

There are tons of best ones I have received. Some I follow, some I try to, but fail miserably. Right now, I am focusing on – You have one life to live, live it your way.

9. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

It has been six months since I started writing fiction, so I would consider myself a beginner who still finds almost everything about writing, bit of a challenge. If I have to be specific it would be – laying out the plot. The ‘show not tell’ part of writing especially in the overall story arc is something I need to consciously work on.

10. What is your favorite Quote?

“Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you” – I was in my teens when I came upon this quote as my sister and I were searching for something to make a birthday gift for my mom, and it has stuck with me since.
