Interview of Nihara Hareesh, The author of ‘Relentless: An Inspirational Love’


“…One cannot escape one’s life entirely. But sometimes someone walks into your life and changes everything you ever believed in.” Says the author Nihara Hareesh. 

Good afternoon readers,

It gives me immense pleasure to introduce you all to the author Nihara Hareesh. She is a lifestyle blogger and runs a successful blog She made a successful entry into the world of writing through her love fiction ‘Relentless: An Inspirational Love’.

1. Welcome to our blog, kindly introduce yourself, and your journey to becoming a writer?

I am Nihara Hareesh. Blogger, entrepreneur and now author. I currently reside in Dubai and “Relentless” is my debut book.

2. Why did you decide to debut with a love fiction?

I am a romantic by nature. I am big on happy endings and Romance is a topic that hits close to home. My parents have an amazing love story and that always inspired me.

3. From where did you get the idea for this book?

I spent a couple of years in boarding where I had come across a couple of real life love stories. Relentless is inspired from one of those stories. All the characters in the book are inspired from real people, especially the character Dean.

4. A lifestyle blogger turning into a writer, do you ever wanted to write a book or it just happened?

I started writing at the age of 11 and publishing my own book was over 12 years in the making. ‘Lifestyle Glossary’, my blog, was started with a motive to refine my writing. Writing was definitely a part of my life since childhood.

5. How much was it difficult to write a book while managing a blog?

Writing a book while managing a blog and a business was definitely challenging. I lacked inspiration in the beginning because of the hectic work schedule. But traveling always helped me get my mojo back. A major chunk of the story as written during my press trips and hotel reviews.

6. You have created the characters having the terrible past and also given the tagline in book ‘A past you can’t escape’. In real life, how much past is important and how it affects life?

It’s rightly said – “Past is a part and parcel of life”. One cannot escape one’s life entirely. But sometimes someone walks into your life and changes everything you ever believed in. And that’s what adds that zing to romance. This is exactly what I wanted to portray in my book.

7. Your favourite author and favourite books/novels, which we should read.

My all-time favorite book is “eleven minutes” by Paulo Coelho. It is quite intense and throws light on the fact the love is beautiful and everyone deserves love. A must read.

8. If you have to dedicate this book to one person then who would it be?

My Dad for the unbelievable faith in me. His constant support is my biggest treasure.

9. What are the perks of being a writer?

The biggest perk is seeing your dream come to life. Running my fingers over my name on the book was definitely priceless.

10. What is the best compliment you have received for your book so far? 

“Impressed with the narrative skills of a debut writer. Good to know that there are love stories like this around us. Isn’t it the same kind of love we dream off!! Pure and eternal.”

This was the best compliment I received.

11. Apart from writing and blogging, what are you other hidden passions?

I am a singer. I come from a musical background. My parents are professional singers. That’s also how they met. I guess you can say it runs in the family. But immensely passionate about it too.

12. What is the hardest and easiest part of writing?

The easiest part of writing for me is developing the details in the story. The hardest part however is editing. Editing is the most crucial yet the most time consuming part of the entire process.

13. Tell us about your future projects. Any other genre you want to try?

I am working on my second book. It is set to launch on valentine’s day. I would definitely love to try my hand at writing horror. Probably a long way down the lane.

14. Anything you want to add for my readers?

I really hope you like reading “Relentless”. I genuinely look forward to your feedback. And you are definitely reading the right blog. Halo Of Books have the most honest reviews. Continue to support Halo Of Books. They deserve all the

15. A billion dollar advice for aspiring writers. 

Never give up! I almost gave up a couple of times but I always decided to go ahead and try again. And “Relentless” was finally born. I hope I get read your wonderful books to one day!

Love Sutra by @urvashi_pahwa 
Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Love is a feeling which cannot be expressed in the words. From many years, poets and writers are penning about this. Over the time, the definition of love changed. If we see the present situation then there are very few people who love each other unconditionally.  Living in the modern era when the other things take importance, do we have time to explore and understand love? The author of this book tried to give us some influential love sutra through the various stories. Thank you so much dear author for giving me a chance to read and review your debut work. 😊

Rating 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
First of all, I would like to thank the publisher for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first thing which attracts the readers is the enchanting book cover, adorned with magenta colour and the palm of Buddha. This book cover can attract even a non-reader. After reading the blurb and genre, I was quite skeptical about this book but to my surprise, it turned out to be one of best non-fiction books of this year. .

  • #octoberwrapup 🍀
I am writing a post after a long time, this month was not good for me. There were so many family emergencies. My fiance was sick and frequently admitted to the hospital. We have lost one of our close relatives. 🙁 Overall, this month was very sad and despite being a month of Diwali it didn’t go well. Only the good news is that I joined my new job and I am very much happy with my work, team, and company. Due to all these, my mind was totally occupied and reading totally got sidelined. I able to complete just 4 books, among them, two were small reads.
Here are the ratings:
⚫ happiness is all we want by @ashutoshmishra8772 - 5 star
⚫ Adventures in farland by @reliaofficial - 4 star ⚫ crooked house by #agathachristie - 5 star ⚫ three thousands stitches by Sudha Murthy - 5 star .
You can read the full wrap up on my blog,  link is in bio. How was your month ? And how many books have you read in this month?💜
