Hello hello… hope you all are doing
great on this Wednesday morning. I am doing fine on this bright morning. Well,
the reason for my chirpiness is not just the fine bright morning. I have news
for you guys. I am finally an author now!!! Yay… My short story was selected and published
in an anthology and I finally have my author copies with me in hand. Yeah it’s
my first publication so I am super duper excited! So if I am sounding too
excited, excuse please. :)
And here’s the first look of my book for you guys. It’s called Blank Space - Filled with Inspiration. It’s probably the first anthology published with 100 stories from 100 inspiring authors. A big thanks to Dinesh Kumar Radhakrishnan and Propel Steps for compiling all these wonderful stories and co-coordinating with so many authors. Edited by Preethi Venugopal & Barun Bajracharya this definitely is a great collection of inspiring short stories.
And what’s more I have my Good Reads author page too. :) So you can understand my excitement
I guess. Now that I have the copies with me I am reading through the stories
and feeling great about all the writers. Some are really worth applauding. I
also read some good reviews by readers. It only makes me happy about it.
Blank Space – Filled with
Inspiration is available on Amazon.in and Propel Steps Site. It’s available in
a Paperback format as of now. It will be available on Flip kart also soon. I’ll
let you know when it does.
|And there it is - My story on pg 130|
If you guys read and like the book,
please be kind to let me know in a comment below, Tweet, in my FB page or you
could mail me twinklingtina-at-gmail-dot-com.
Well there’s more in store. There
are more stories in the pipeline! I recently took part in a blogging contest –
Game of Blogs hosted by BlogAdda. You would have read the posts from Team
ByLines ( if you are a regular here). And guess what our team ByLines won with
our sci-fi thriller! And as a result we are getting published by Lead Start
publishing. Isn’t that great news! You can read our Game of Blog journey in our
Twitter Chat with BlogAdda.
There’s more, I have been selected
in another anthology too. And this time it will be a love story. So 2015 is
packed with my literary work! I love it already. Wish me luck people.
Will look forward to listening from
you guys. Love.
P.S. My story in Blank Space is
called “Live your Dreams”.
