    Keep loving books and keep supporting authors.
  • What’s your message to budding/ aspiring writers?
    To all the budding writers I want you guys to follow your heart, I want you guys to feel the vibes of your heart towards writing. Never listen to the people who want to defame you. Write what your heart wants to. Trust your abilities and never get demotivated even after criticism.
  • Lastly, how was your experience working with us?
    InkQuills is a very good platform for budding writers. These guys choose quality work and supportive editors made me feel comfortable in this platform and project. I would only give love in feedback of InkQuills services and want to work with them for sure if I get to be part of other projects in the near future.
