Devika fascination about Sweet Romantic Tales --- A Guest Post

Today I have a Special  Guest on my blog . 'Special 'would not  be an appropriate word to use .As my guest is  much more than special to say. So join you hands and clap for the  one and only  queen of romance 'DEVIKA FERNANDO'.

A Little brief about my guest: Devika has penned many novels and have self published them. All her book  have a charm to evolve a special feeling in your hearts  .All her books have  sweet  heart felt romances which we can't find in today's times.

It is my great pleasure to host   her  here on my blog. Devika welcome to sunsetreader.blogspot.in 

Special Thanks to The  Book Club and Rubina for running such  blog tours as without your support and help  I would not  be able to find such golden  opportunities of hosting the authors here .

Question: Devika all you books have sweet romantic tales. How do you draw inspiration to write such sweet stories in this fast moving world where people have a different take on romance?

Interesting question… Firstly, you’re right that these days the more erotic tales seem to enjoy bigger popularity and sell better. But I don’t think sweet love stories will ever lose their fascination completely because there are still people who want more than just “action between the sheets”.

There are three reasons why I focus on sweet / sensual / clean romance and why I find endless inspiration for it: Firstly, I prefer stories where there is actual love instead of just lust because diving into a person’s heart and mind is so interesting. Secondly, I am a firm believer in true love because I have found it myself and see it happen with others too. Thirdly, my Asian background and rather traditional family from my husband’s side would never understand it or approve it if I wrote stories with more focus on the physical aspect and with explicit details.

As for inspiration, I draw it from everything and everyone. My own experiences and news items are just as inspiring as pictures I find on the internet. I am fascinated by the many facets of love, and by the changes people can undergo when they’re in love. And just because I don’t focus mostly on sex doesn't mean that I cannot portray intimacy on some level. Last but not least, I think the television is still full enough of dramatic love stories and daily soaps – and other romance novels by such great and famous authors like Nicholas Sparks or Nora Roberts are a huge inspiration.

About Devika Fernando :

 Devika Fernando

Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark are sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life.

Besides being a romance novel author, she works as a self-employed German web content writer, as a translator, and as a faithful servant to all the cats, dogs, fish and birds in her home. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.
