If I begin to count the milestones in my writing journey, and have to choose one story that gave me more than I could ever ask for, then that has to be Spark and Spice.
Like all other stories, it is a story too close to my heart. But unlike others, it loves me more.
It has given me so much that my heart fills with gratitude.
From the first chapter posted at Wattpad, the introduction of characters to the last update, or while reposting on this blog, I’ve only gained and gained more.
I met amazing people online… most of my readers through this story. Some were from before but maximum joined me during this story. I made so many friends online who are not only friends but a part of my life now. While writing and posting this story, I rediscovered myself in many ways. It introduced me to social media.
Given a choice, I would have let it remain online for everyone to read and treasure, for life. But the way my stories were copied on Wattpad I needed to make sure that each one of them is registered in my name and then whoever wants can keep it.
Once again, as I edit it to be released as paperback and ebook, my joy of reading it again, knows no bounds. I’m the biggest fan of my stories 😊
I believe that stories write themselves. Writers are only a medium.
I’m so glad that Spark & Spice chose me to be its medium to connect with the world.
In this space, I will be telling you more about the new Spark & Spice and its journey into publication.
~ All those who have read it before know how Valentine’s Day is an integral part of the first few updates of the story. The story begins on Valentine’s Day. So, I’m trying my best that it releases on or before 14th Feb 2021.
~ It will be a 3 part series. Part 1 will release first. Later followed by new parts after few months.
~ The main lead protagonists are named Virat Malhotra and Niyati Reddy.
I’ve tried to keep them as close to their personalities with a familiar ring to their names 💖
~ A novel means better and crisp dialogues, no repetition, better editing, proof reading and a smooth flow.
Before this, I know how I had to edit my debut novel The Masquerade (click here to read more) content wise to fit into a 498 pages(paperback) and 390 pages (ebook). Few chapters at the end had to be rushed because I was going above and beyond the word limit. Similarly, I retained few chapters as such as I didn’t want to disturb them. That is why it took a long time and a struggle on my part to make it presentable. But since I hadn’t written the end before, I went ahead and did it. It was an amazing experience for me.
~ This time, I don’t want to disturb anything in this beautiful story, other than add more dialogues, add scenes, insights into their personalities, their point of view, and the city. I didn’t delete anything. Only added more.
And to avoid messing with page count and write under pressure, I divided the book in 3 parts – A series.
Win win situation for us as now there is more to read.
~ So, to begin this journey and end the year on a high note, I’ll be announcing the first contest of Spark and Spice.
There will be 5 contests in all. Each contest will have 3 winners. Each winner will get a copy of Spark & Spice.
International winners, if any, will get the ebook.

For me it is the way the person treats people around him. The way he cares about the people around him. Near and dear ones but most importantly those younger than him and those unknown to him or her. And those who cannot benefit him in any way. The selfless nature. The way someone thinks about others more than himself is the most beautiful and most important quality for me.
The SMILE!! Irrespective of from whom it is , whether from an utter stranger or a loved ones, it just fills up the heart. It’s so contiguous that one can never stop themselves from returning back the favour. It holds so much of positivity in it. It’s unbelievable how such a simple gesture can change one’s day to a wonderful one.
Best wishes for your next book. I’m sure they’ll do great. I’d recently purchased your book ‘The Masquerade’, very eager to read it. I found the intro captivating. I don’t want to rush the read so making time to relax and enjoy the mystery.
Best wishes once again and may the New year being you lots of happiness and success.
All the best di.. I am definitely gonna buy the book (ebook for now😟 ) .. can’t wait to re-read and relive the story ♥️
For me the best quality of any person is ability to love. Everyone have their own set of faults and accepting and loving that person with all persons makes you special….
So many relationships suffer because we expect the other one to behave in a particular way… if only we have ability to love other one as they are…
Hey dear even i found u through this story… I loved ur writings den and i still love your way of bringing out the emotions in ur every story…..
For me the most attractive quality is unbiased nature.I like when people are not biased towards family and friends and believe in who is right or wrong
The most attractive quality in a person according to me is how they behave when they are angry.I really get attracted to people who still holds their values their beliefs even when they are angry.o believe that angry person shows his real personaly
Anger also makes us vulnerable but i believe that anger will never make us do things which arw not in us
Acc. To me the trait or quality which attract me is – the valour to stand up for anything right . And sense of humour of a person.❤️
P.S: all the best .❤️
According to me the most attractive quality is when they speak truth without thinking whether it might change everything for them or strengthen already established trust…
It’s been great association starting as a reader from the books on Wattpad, although a late-starter on reading Fire & Ice but to stay updated with you on this blog while you moved with unprecedented vigour about your works even some copy cats tried their hands at stealing.
You proved time & again that – “A writer’s worth is their extremely sophisticated thoughts , feelings, emotions & imagination” with new books like Tangles & Ties, Beyond the Border and the latest short story.
I’m one of those mediocre reader who used to like but not comment on every chapter although I’ve loved every bit of it. Be it called a habit but wanted to pour my heart out since “SPARK & SPICE” has been the closest of all your writings to my heart as I was carried away with still the characters/places/situations still moving in my head.
Although all of your books have YOUR Magic in it, this stands atop making every letter of it very very dearest & special to me in many ways that can’t be expressed of.
What , according to you, is the most attractive quality in a person ?
As time flies, we grow & the definitions of the most known feelings and emotions tend to change giving a better meaning in their real sense for all of us. There’s no good or bad but just the perception & situation lead us to choose.
In life, there comes a point that will make us believe & feel that this can’t be any more best definition of the quality.
To me personally, the way a person treats other person in the same way he/she would want be treated attracts so much that it’ll multiply my reverence manifolds for the person.
Hope I’ll get my love “Spark & Spice” to be one of the best sellers ever. Thank you so much for your writings.
Loads of Love,
For me it’s the way a person takes care of the other person. Be it emotional being there for their loved ones or taking care of the small small things which people usually don’t express thinking it is too silly or what would he/ she may think about it.. It feels nice when somebody takes an effort to do something nice.. which can be a small thing as well😄☺️
Ab humare pass hogi story or hum kabhi bhi padh sakenge 🤣🤣
Very excited !!
Very special Book
That time ganesh chaturthi countdown 🥰
Aap ek din me 3 chapters update karte thee…

Thank you so much 💕❤️💕
Or Yes aap ka question 😊
According to me , is the most attractive quality in a person is :
* Being humble!
We are living in an modern age, where people have lot of things to talk . From materialistic property to multiple talents, you can easily find a great variety of people. Whether it is intelligence, talent, creativity, money or beautiful faces. Or in this trend, when you get to meet someone who is humble, despite of being a big figure is something that attracts me a most.
And not only famous people, but whoever manages to stay humble in the World is something that attracts me to infinity. Which is why I strongly feel that being humble is the most attractive quality in a human and it makes a person look much more beautiful.
Dherrr sara pyaar aap ke lea….
Stay healthy 💪❤️🥰🍹💪
A person who respects my wishes and opinions,Mature enough to handle the things with calm and composure coz I lack them..Hahaa..A Person who accepts my Family as his and accept me with my flaws and I Promise to do the same.Lastly Loyalty is must.
According to me- the most attractive quality of a person is ‘being yourself’
Just be what you are- no drama , no pretence … simply be yourself… you dont need to impress anyone or make a mark of yourself by being someone who is not actually you… showcase your true self… doesn’t matter if you are rude at times or harsh , faking sweetness jus for the sake of it is not correct…
Thats what i think…
And about Spark and Spice… what do i say about this book… its love… cant wait to grab it n read it over n over n over again… il never be tired of it😘😘😘
Gratitude in every situation, ability to understand other person’s perspective without being judgemental, and lastly hard working.
Too much to ask for🙈
Honesty and loyalty….in short a good human being…
The most attractive quality a person can have is his/her nature n ❤️…he or she should be the real one n not the fake one…
P.s I have not read ur this book ….but I’m really sooo excited to read it🥰🥰🥰
Honesty and humbleness are the two qualities which I look in people.. So that in the first go you can talk to them.. Later we can dissect their personality.. But I look for these two qualities di… Congratulations in this new endeavor.. Much love to you.. Will be with you always..
Loads of love
Your question has really got me pondering di. 😄
i’ve so many qualities in my mind rn but now i’d love if the person is humble and reliable. Also he should be quite attentive towards certain things!!
P.S- and he should be forbearing with me. 😂
Lastly, I really can’t wait to get my hands on the book di. I’m so excited and glad to be a part of this journey!! Best wishes. 🤗👍👌✨🤍
For me the most attractive thing is how the person treats everyone around him or her.
My answer for ur question. Someone looks attractive when he /she is kind and loyal, someone who is genuine and real without any fake image. Good or bad for me being You is important.
S&S journey is not only special for you, it is spl for each of us. This is the first story I read via wattpad, I loved this story and ur writing. My love for ur writing made me to read Fire & Ice, twisted minds and the rest is history 😍😍❤ I found an inspiration in you and a very good friend all because of this story 💕 I am super excited for S&S💃💃 All the best of luck! U are going to kill it. Only success and happiness on ur way 😍😁😁😇
Heyaaaa manita ❤️
It feels so so so grateful to see you progressing in your life . Your stories are not just fictional characters speaking for themselves. It’s a warm blanket in a chilled cold day , a cup of tea in rainy seasons and a splash of cold water in the heat of may.
Wishing you loads of luck for your venture 💜
Now coming to your question , I feel a person look unreasonably attractive when he has the ability to not judge someone who is a lot more different than him , carries a completely different mindset and is someone who you don’t always find next door. The fact that you are showing acceptance towards someone who really doesn’t match your thoughts shows that you are growing up as a person . Your thoughts are no more revolved around yourself and you are comfortable with the fact that there exist people whom you won’t like or won’t share the vibe with but that doesn’t mean that they are wrong or anything.
I hope I did justice with my words ♥️
Loads of regards and love 🙈✨
You cant imagine how happy i am to know this
Spark and spice is my 2nd book i read on wattpad (1st is masquerade)
I am soo delighted to have a paperback version of it
To caress the pages and hugging it close to my heart
Paperback version is bliss
So my answer is.,
Honesty and sense of humor… a honest person is soo hard to find in the world wer we lie for our own circumstances and to escape it.
And sense of humor is so needed for me .. to make me smile wen i feel sad…
I joined your writing journey from T&T days. There were already 10 chapters posted by the time i started reading it on Wattpad. Then I followed you here to this blog and there is no looking back ever since. I remember the ganesh chaturthi spark and spice marathon. I didn’t got a chance to read it on Wattpad. I was hell excited to read it ..and even today I am hell excited to read it again. I am so happy for you.
Coming to the question :
For me, there are two things that make a person attractive.
1. Sense of humour
I find a person attractive when he can make me laugh easily…it’s not a easy task to make me laugh considering that I am very serious person and don’t talk much.
2. Handling Criticism
My mom says that I carry my anger on my nose. The moment when someone criticise me..my anger switch flips. I find a person attractive when he handles criticism efficiently.
Congratulations and all the best for S&S.
I am sure it will rock like Masquerade.
Very Excited to know that it is a triology.
Much love Doc!
I cannot even tell you how happy this makes me!! Waking up to this news and how I am sure of buying this, absolutely ❤️❤️
One quality that I would always look forward in a man and that also attracts me (from my personal experience) will be -responsible towards family.
From my personal experience, I know how secure and happy one’s clan should be in order to be at your best potential. A quality that I always look forward to is the way a man treats his own family and then his friends. 🙂 Speaks volume about a person because you cannot put a shed on others’ hut when your own hut has been submerged under the rains.
Hi, I being very impatient to read your new book. The Masquerade was awesome and this will definitely be worth waiting.
According to me, a person should only be honest to himself and to others in every scenario. If he is honest then he will be trustworthy and if he is trustworthy then any kind of relation maybe it is friendship or love or only acquaintance will be worth having and true.
So so glad that Spark and Spice is not just one but a triple dhamaka treat for us di! Excited to read the new version and fall in love with them again. Being selfless and compassionate to others are the qualities that attract me to others easily.
I would be attracted instantly by these two
SELFLESSNESS IN HELPING OTHERS.
Spark and spice was the book which made me follow you and I am very happy to stumble upon this book. Best wishes M!!
For me the attractive quality in a person is the ability to love me for the whom i am and not force me to change to the person whom they want. Respecting my opinion but also putting forth their point which helps get a better perspective of thinking.
I have used this in the sense that one’s partner should be supportive and encouraging for anything the other one wants to do in life. A person can emerge totally different and more confident when they know they have someone to support them no matter what!
Ps- the news that i will get to read spark and spice again itself made my day🤩
Can’t wait to travel through this beautiful journey once again!
Sooo happy that finally I will be able to read and re-read Spark and Spice as many yimes as I want!
Qualities that attract ne have to be- loyalty, loyalty and loyalty! Loyalty is the foremost thing that I demand in any relationship of mine, so yeah.
And at first look, the attitude of a person towards strangers is what I seek!
So so excited about the book😍
my first book ever which my friend introduced to me and to the wattpad so i m glad to come across the book❤️
All the best dii❤️
Thank you Hinu🤗
For me there are some qualities which attracts me to people
-Like their behaviour towards other people no matter what their status is if the person behaves good with them i like it a lot.
-Their honesty and loyalty
There are some more also but these are one of the mains which attract me to the person..
Honestly for me it’s Someone who will never bound me in his/her conditions or opinions. Someone who can make a joke but can also take a joke.
P. s- really very excited for the release, as u say spark nd spice holds a special place in my heart because, it’s the same story through which I got to know you. The story which made me fall in love with you nd your writing, whenever I feel tired or not in a mood of doing anything, I just starts reading the story again even when I know every tits nd bits, still every time feels like first time. Can’t wait to buy the addition. And I’m sure this book will definitely going to be one milestone in your career. All the best to you😇😇
Thank you Harshita. Like I’ve said before Spark & Spice loves its readers back… manifold.
Its not a story for me, it’s an emotion.
The way the person treats other people around him/her (be it family, friends or strangers) 🙂
the most attractive quality a person can have in my opinion is loyalty. That no
matter what is happening in your life that person will always support you. In front of others
even if they don’t agree with you, they will stand by you. That no matter what the situation,
and against the whole world they will stand with you and for you. And will never ever betray
P.S — Spark and Spice was my first love on wattpad. It’s such a special book
to me and holds a permanent place in my heart. I have read it so many times and
each time I find something new to fall in love with the story all over again.
I am international (in U.S) and would love to win a copy.
Thank you for all the love and for participating. Each reader is special for Spark & Spice. It’s your love that has made it immortal.
For me it’s always how a person treats other people specially woman 👩
Thanks for sharing your view 💖
For me, always honesty.
The ability to love and accept the flaws of ones and others with ni inhibitions is the most attractive quality. No shying away.
P. S- Hope I’m able to convey.
Yes, Siddhi, you did.
For me the attractive quality in a person is their observance. The ability to notice the minutest of things, be it a haircut done by you or a mood change in you which most fail to notice. Its those little things they observe about you which means so much.
So sweet 😍
