“I am filled with unexplained emotions of stillness and nervousness, I discovered that I enjoyed the process of writing in solitude ever since I embarked upon this journey of writing my first ever novel,” Iyer Tiwari said in a statement.

“Until now, this story was just mine, but now the time has come to share it with the world. I’ve written it with all my heart putting each word to paper visualising a world. I can’t wait to see how my audience and readers react to Mapping Love,” she added.

The book will be published by Rupa Publications.

On the work front, Iyer Tiwari is set to make her debut in the digital space with SonyLIV’s original series Faadu, an intense poetic love-story between two different-thinking characters.
