And the winners...

The first person who guessed it right was Tyler.He immediately mailed me as he did not want to give the game away.But Tyler is such a good friend. Besides, he knows who all my admirers are! :-) So, Tyler doesnt qualify.Sorry Tyler!

Niall came close, but he hedged a bit as he said "It is someone very young"

Gawpo is the winner. He did not guess it right, but he came amazingly close.(I dont know what you have against 9, Gawpo!) Yes, you are right.He is an old soul.

Misti,That was a really good interpretation.
Hershey,Katherine, the artist wanted me to tell you "Yeaaah.They do think I'm an adult"
Deejay, he loved your quilts that you put up in your blog.
Devil Mood, He wanted to know if you were a devil like the ghosts in Scooby-doo!
Bob-kat, he loves your pictures too!

The picture is done by Atul Shenoy (he wanted me to write his full name, because he says he wants to be famous through my blog!) He was so delighted to read all your comments.Thank you so much, all of you for writing in.You made the young artist very very happy.

Atul is my son--and he is 9 years old.

  1. lol.. When I called him in his 20s I meant it with respect to being a big kid trying to relive his youth.

    But would never have guessed so young

  9. Atul Shenoy,
    a most talented boy!

    Were you son mine,
    I would have guessed 9.

    But because you're so great,
    you could have done it at 8.

    Your knowing smile is a factor,
    all kicked back on your tractor.

    And your depiction of Prince,
    says YOU'RE "The Artist,"
    and he should wince.

  10. Cool kid this guy Atul, even if he is my own son. The best son, a good person and a wonderful boy. Not forgetting a far better artist than his father can ever hope to be... Keep in up my son.

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.



When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …

Hi!

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!


The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
