The sulky blog and other things

So it's been 13 whole days since I posted here. No wonder the blog was throwing a major tantrum like a whiny brat in the supermarket who screams and shouts till he is red in the face, sending the decibel levels sky rocketing to the level of a jet plane taking off till the weary parent finally succumbs and gives in.

My blog was  much nicer about it though. It sent me gentle mental reminders. And when that didn't work, it made a cute face at me and I always fall for niceness. So here I am :)

The last few days have been a whirlwind of activities. One of my closest friends visited me (and we have known each other since we were ten). I had my husband's family visiting and  of course the daily pressures of running a home and juggling my writing. My next book is coming along well but it will be a few months before you can have it in your hands. (and this is completely different from anything I have done before and I am excited about it)

Meanwhile my current book has been topping the charts. Those who follow me on FB would know about it as I have regularly been posting screen shots of the Nielsen best-seller lists there (it has consistently been on top ten, each week since release).

KPMG put up the video of the talk that I gave at their corporate office. Since many of you wrote in and asked me about it, here it is. It is about 12 minutes long.






I promise to be a bit more regular from now on. I don't want my blog to sulk.

Show it some love will you? Leave it some nice comments. It hates neglect and thrives on attention. And not just from me :) ____________________________________________________________________
