And I finally did it! Wrote my first fantasy romance and published it on Amazon! The process reminded me of my pregnancy and the birth of my babies. Throughout your pregnancy you wonder if you are doing the right thing and how it will affect your baby. And then you are scared about the labour pains and you do go through them but once the baby is in your arms you find it was all worth it.

With the book too, though it is just a little story, light romance, I went through terrible labour pains and self doubts. But finally my baby is here.

The cover looks good no? A huge thanks to Gyana Geeta of GGS Creations for understanding exactly what I wanted.

The inspiration for putting my book out there is of course our very own Indian Nora Roberts – Sundari Venkatraman. In spite of her busy schedule – She has published 25 books in five years – she took the trouble to tell me where I could improve. I have no words to thank her with because every time I try, my heart fills over and tears of gratitude fill my eyes.

And another prodder and pusher has been Rubina Ramesh of The Book Club and author of several books herself. She refused to let go till I told her my book was live on Amazon. Again all this while writing and publishing her own books.

A sturdy support and nit picking critic has been my own daughter, Nakita. She has stood firm against all my mood swings and sensibly talked me out of them.

How can I end this post without saying thank you to Corinne Rodrigues and her Write Tribe or my Kick Ass Girls? You have always been with me, nudging, reading, challenging me to be better than I am.

And to all the people who told me that they were waiting for a book from me, this one is for you.

You can get it here 

Do enjoy reading it!
