Portrait Of A Novelist Marked By Twists, Turns And A Tale Of True Perseverance

New Delhi [India], May 8: In a literary journey marked by twists, turns, and unwavering determination, debut author Simran Dudeja unveils her first book, ‘Like A Summer Song,’ a poignant coming-of-age novel that navigates the intricacies of life, love, and self-discovery.

Simran is a fresh voice in the literary scene who commenced her debut work during the challenging days of the 2020 lockdown. She found solace in writing, she started the initial drafts of “Like A Summer Song,” weaving together a whirlwind of emotions and experiences.

Initially set to publish her work in 2021 with a renowned publisher, Simran faced a heartbreaking setback due to creative differences. She momentarily set aside her literary aspirations, embracing 2022 as a year of travel and a pivot in her corporate career from management consulting with BCG to product marketing in tech startups. In 2023, she returned to her manuscript, rewriting sections and initiating conversations with publishers anew. The journey led her to NuVoice Press, guided by her earlier connections within the writing community, including Hubhawks, Kevin, and Vini.

Her path to publication wasn’t without hurdles, she faced a couple of rejections, but she embraced each one as a redirection rather than a setback. The theme of destiny, a prominent theme in her book, mirrored in real life with her unwavering belief in her calling despite obstacles.  .

Managing a flourishing corporate career alongside her literary pursuits posed its challenges. Weekends became dedicated writing havens, with some nights transitioning seamlessly from creating presentations for her day job to the creation of captivating prose until midnight. Writing trips, and occasional getaways to scenic locations, provided her with the mental clarity needed for creative exploration while striving for success professionally.

As “Like A Summer Song” finds its space on the shelves and readers’ hearts, Simran is already immersed in her next project, a manuscript delving into the complexities of modern dating, evolving dynamics in relationships, and the pressures faced by today’s women in their pursuit of love and self-discovery.

She aspires to redefine contemporary Indian romance, blend poetry with prose, craft authentic characters, and cater to the Instagram generation craving genuine connections and vulnerability in real life. 

“Like a Summer Song” is a book that will tug at your heartstrings, make you reflect on your own journey, and leave you feeling like you just had a cup of hot chocolate in cold weather. Simran’s ability to capture the complexity of human emotions and her skillful storytelling make this debut novel a must-read.
