Favourite fictionals (Blog marathon post 26)

Am doing a Sunday Stealing post for today which is on Fictional Favourites.

1. Favorite fictional couple?  

Henry and Clare in Time traveller's wife

2. Favorite fictional character? 


 3. Favorite fictional TV show?

 Band of brothers


 4. Favorite fictional movie? 

 Too many to name!
The Shawshank redemption, Pursuit of Happyness, The Bucketlist, Goodwill Hunting, Up in the air, The bridge to Terabithia, Bridges of Madison County, The descendants, Brokeback Mountain and Lord of War, The wolf of wall street, to name a few

 5. Favorite fictional villain? 

I don't have one.

 6. Favorite fictional hero? 

Again I don't have a favourite hero as such. I think is it situations that make heroes out of ordinary people.
 7. Favorite fictional pet? 
Snowy from Tintin :)

 8. Favorite fictional setting/universe?
The Universe we live in is so beautiful! Currently reading A brief History of time by Stephen Hawkings. How can anything be more beautiful than the Cosmos?

 9. Least favorite fictional couple?
I don't have one. If I don't like something I don't spend too much time thinking about it. It is unnecessarily giving them space in your head!

 10. Least favorite fictional character?
None!

 11. Least favorite fictional TV show?
I don't watch TV at all. But the othe day I happened to chance upon Two Broke girls and thought it was pathetic!
 
 12. Least favorite fictional movie?
Many badly made movies out there. Begins with Dhoom 3--the first movie, I actually walked out of the movie hall as I found it unbearable to sit there to absorb the stupidity.

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…
