Interviewed by BookGoodies.com!

23 Jul

This is exciting for me and I guess it would be for any author to be interviewed and published. My interview was recently published on BookGoodies.com

Here’s the Interview excerpt,

What inspires you to write?

My passion for technology and the spark to share the bit of knowledge I have!
Moreover, I’m inspired by my family which motivates myself to excel and to think and do things differently.

Tell us about your writing process

When I started working on the title “Securing Cisco IP Telephony Networks”, it came through as a rather pleasant revelation was, how I had to be creative in thinking what audience would like to see, vivid in visualizing to ensure that pictures do mean a thousand words, and convinced to decide the best way to explain a concept in a clear and concise manner.
Being an author has changed the way I look at things and the perspective in which I represent my thoughts. In a nutshell, I try and be in a reader’s mood and profile to see what a reader would like to see in the book.
The tools of writing are pretty much simple and unsophisticated as I use Microsoft Word for writing, Excel for tables, Visio and Powerpoint for diagrams, and PrtScrn for capturing screens (for illustrations). When it comes to writing process, I clear my mind, sit down in a relaxed environment, and start working through my thoughts and write down the rough manuscript which I finalize once all done. Overall, a straight forward and simple process.

How did you decide how to publish your books?

For technology oriented books there’re a few publishers however, for Cisco specific books the list is even shorter. When it comes to choice of publisher, it wasn’t a difficult venture as I had my mind made up for Cisco Press. Again, they are a a great platform for technologists like myself and people who wish to invest time and effort into writing a technical literature. So, without a doubt I was going with them, at least for this title
In future I would like to explore more avenues like another publisher for the technical literature or may be even self publishing.
