Whenever I try to trace back to the very first time I wrote, countless memories replay of me writing plots and prose in the earliest ages of my life. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and ever since I started dreaming, I dreamed of holding a book that had my name on it.
My writings are inspired by almost everything… I like to think of my life as a never-ending quest for anything I can spin up into words!
My favorite writers are, without question, Emily Dickinson and William Wordsworth. So many of my poems are inspired by them. If I could have any superpowers, I would choose one that allows me to write exactly like them!
I absolutely love to read. Whenever I’m asked about my favorite book, which does seem like an impossible question to answer though, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry pops up in my mind. It’s a treasure of a story. And I cannot move on without mentioning The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky too!
However, reading books is one thing, but writing and publishing is a completely another adventure… I realized that at the age of 15, as I was failing all my classes, feeling terribly confused and scared because my book was going to come out. My words; my heart and soul would be out before the world! But my readers treat it to so much love that all my fears went away. Whenever I see your lovely reviews and messages, I realize that someone whom I barely even know read my book, and they understood and felt my words… they were kind to my soul. I realize and appreciate that all the time.
I value every single one of you, every single day.
And I urge you, if you have a story and you dream to put it out there, but you think your age will hold you back, go for it, set your heart to it because once you do that, there is absolutely nothing that can stop you. So to all the new writers out there, though it’s not much, but I’m here to help you, whether by my Duende magazine project or simply by any other means I can. I stand with the dreamers, always!

Publishing Experience with Auraq

There may not be a lot of established publishing houses in Pakistan, but the aim and work of Auraq Publications is surely a ray of light into the future. Being an O level student, I needed very cooperative publishers, so I spent countless months researching all my options, and only with Auraq did I get exactly what I wanted!
With them, all my hopes regarding my book’s publishing were excellently met! My work and rights as an author was always their top priority.
I made my first publishing deal with Auraq, and didn’t regret it at all. So if you’re a new writer, in need of utmost assistance along the publishing journey, Auraq Publications is definitely recommended for you!. ~ Himna Ahmad Khan
