#SpecialFeature :: #Interview with Vignesh Ravichandran, #Author of Scepters of Empyrea

*** Special Feature - May 2019 ***

Quick Recap:

About the Book:
Empyrea, an island in the Andromeda galaxy belonging to planet Vathura is serene. Everywhere your eyes turn, you will feast on the lovely birds singing their heart out in the lush green vegetation. Osiris Mysterio ruled the regions of Empyrea with his brother Tyrant Seth and with their children Pitheceus Babi, Kraity Wadjet, and Horus Mysterio.

5000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians were the only humans to receive the invitation to enter Empyrea. They gladly on-boarded into a Pegasus chariot and took their journey to Empyrea. Their journey is indescribable. Empyrea by itself was like a fairy-tale garden, an ocean of flowers and exotic trees.

As the Egyptians went further inside Empyrea, they saw its netherworld. They had mixed feelings when they saw the triangle shaped tombs and the bizarre headhunting people. Empyrea also had the blood-curdling creatures like the deadly dinosaurs, gigantic snakes, furious apes, ruthless rhino’s, massive mastodons and many other creepy creatures. This showed the power of the Empyrean Army and that no other army could survive their wrath.

The Emperor Osiris and the kings ruled Empyrea with powerful Scepters. With those powers, they were not only considered as kings but also worshipped as Lords. The Lords with the help of their scepter had the crucial power to transform themselves into giant creatures.

Egyptians while departing from Empyrea was gifted with a shortcut portal to earth and also with some people and creatures of Empyrea to build the Empramids in Egypt. Overwhelmed with happiness they took the shortcut door and returned to Egypt.

However, the happiness was short-lived in Empyrea. The Empire of Empyrea was betrayed for ruling earth avariciously. Somehow the Emperor of Empyrea locked the shortcut portal and asked the Egyptians to safeguard it. The Egyptians, on the other hand, failed to safeguard the portal. And some gangsters accidentally opened the shortcut door in 2017 A.D, entered Empyrea, and inadvertently got access to the Lord scepters.

So, now the Earthians were left with no choice but to battle against the merciless predators and headhunting people in their heroic journey. Their ultimate fate lied in an empire beyond imagination. They would take their stand against the powerful lords, who brutally led their people to war against planet Earth.

Did the gangsters protect the earth from danger, or left the other world to accomplish their tyrant rule on Earth? Explore the world of Empyrea to unravel the truth behind this mystery.

Interview with the Author:

When did you first realize that you wanted to be a writer/ a storyteller?
I first realized it when I was pursuing my under-graduation about 8 years ago. I tried writing a few during my childhood, but this is my first professional one.

What inspires you to write?
My imagination is my biggest inspiration, and that drives me to write and share it to the world

What kind of research goes into your book?
As my book is a fantasy, the research was more into Egyptian mythology and ice age creatures.

What are you working on at the moment?
I am working on a fantasy novel once again. This would be like the story of Cinderella.

How did you come up with the idea for your current story? 
I experienced the small part of my story in my nightmare 8 years ago. Later, I developed it with some real life facts.

Please share three interesting facts about the characters in your book.
There are more than 25 characters in the book, below are the highlights about the characters:
a. The key characters of my book are the powerful Egyptian gods.
b. The key characters can transform into giant creatures
c. Most of the characters were structured by referring my friends

Do you ever experience writer’s block? If so what helps you to get over it?
As a debut author, I faced so many blocks, and I didn't had any professional person to guide me on this. I read related books and watched related movies to understand how the author/director portrayed their imagination. It helped me a lot.

Do you know the ending of your books before you finish writing them?
Yes. I love to give a cliff hanger to my other books.

What is the best piece of advice you have received, as a writer, till date?
I received a couple of advice, and each one is best in their own way.  Most of them said that i need read lot of books and improve my English skills.
