Today's post is about Aniket. Have you met him? Do you know anyone like him? Or if you are a guy, are you like him?
(Do watch the above video--It's a 30 second introduction to Aniket)
I had shared the above video on facebook, and I got an interesting response from a reader. This is what he said.
You can see my reply too.
The Hindu had given my book an excellent review, praise which is hard to earn if you write commercial fiction. I quote from the article:
And today I also took a screen-shot of the reviews on amazon:Shenoy’s book, on the other hand, is a pleasant discovery. Her deft handling of a nicely rounded and original plot is impressive. Chance brings a 30-something woman, Nidhi, and a 20-something man together, and they become friends. Shenoy gives us complex characters with complicated lives, and her handle on different kinds of relationships is strong. Her writing is simple; too simple in fact, with almost no layers and subtleties. All of the punch, then, lies in the story and its insights. You find yourself rooting for her protagonists, and feeling none of the irritation of reading about damsels in distress.
Any author feels great when they get terrific reviews.
For me, this was especially great, as this book wasn't easy to write. There was a lot going on in my personal life at that time.
Hence, this victory feels even more sweet.
(Incidentally the book has already sold more than 40,000 copies since release)
If you are one of those who contributed to the success, a hearltfelt thank you.
That's me right now :)
See you tomorrow!
And yes, if you haven't yet read it, here's a GREAT offer.
Goodnight my lovely reader.
I will meet you again tomorrow.
Don't forget to leave me comments, tell me your thoughts about the book. (but don't give away the ending or the plot twists please!)
lots of love
