Little chit-chat that's not so little. Post 11

 Both my children live away from home (both have left home for college and study abroad). Hence any time I get with them is precious.

Actual conversation that took place just now between my daughter and me.

'Mum, do you want to do something fun after you finish your blog post?'
'I would love to..But I have to think of a topic to write first.'
'Just write about how I can become the next president of United States.'
'That's just what I will write about !'
'Mum!!! No! I was kidding. Don't write that.'
'I will write it and show it to you. If you are okay, will hit publish'.

And that is how this post came to be :)

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.

So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
