Hello friends. Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here’s hoping the new year will take us to a world beyond pain and suffering and one where only love and happiness dwell
Was it just me or didn’t the year 2011 just whoosh past? There I was, sweating it out over my second novel, with the deadline looming large. No sooner had I finished it, than I was whisked to the book launch of The World Beyond. Thanks to everyone who came along, it went on to become the #1 bestselling novel in some areas.
Some good reviews and features followed; I even got over my stage fright and gave a couple of radio interviews back to back. And I have just received the news that The World Beyond had been trending on Flipkart as well as Indiaplaza.
And it is thanks to you – my readers and my dear friends. We don’t have thanksgiving here, so I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you – for reading my book, for giving me your feedback, for sharing and recommending it, for writing reviews and above all – for giving me so much love and support. I feel truly blessed that so many of you – talented, wonderful people have touched my life. God bless you all. A special thanks to those who have never read a novel or a historical novel in their entire life, but have read The World Beyond and loved it.
As this year draws to a close, I can see my diary for 2012 already getting full – book signings, readings, festivals, judging competitions, book clubs, trip to India and the launch of my next novel – After the Storm.
What are your plans for 2012? The comment button on this blog is finally working (yaayy), so do share. Would love to know.
And once again, may God give each one of us the courage to follow our dreams in the year ahead My special prayers go out to all those who suffered some personal loss this year. May the new year be better for all of us in every way
