A magical fairy garden (blog marathon post 21)

Some days back I had blogged about a miniature garden I had created.
Today, I made another one!

Here are the pictures.


 I made the mushrooms, and the house with clay! Then I painted it :)



The above gives you an idea of the size.

I am so pleased with these tea-cup gardens.
Since they do not have a drainage hole, there is a lot of layering to be done---activated charcoal, pebbles, horticultural fabric, potting soil mixed with perlite etc.(I bought all of those things today, from a local garden store)


It was such fun putting this together. Now all I have to do is wait for the fairies, pixies and gnomes to arrive ;-)

I have an important meeting tomorrow (pssst--it has to do with my next book!).
And I have to wake up at 4.30 am as I have an early flight to catch.

How is my tea cup garden? Tell me in comments!
Till tomorrow, may your day be magical.
Good night!

For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
