So, the title and the dancing emoticon will tell you that I am happy, excited, nervous – all at once – with this news.

The Masquerade is listed – Yes, yes, yes!!!! πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

I have literally NO Words – No words!! No emoticons!!
I tried searching for GIFS – They are none that can describe me actually. I can freaking scream and yet I am speechless! And I have literally tears in my eyes and I don’t know why.

It was one dream that every writer has – To see his/her name on a book cover!! This was one dream that I had always nurtured. And I am living that dream right now!!

Thank you loads to each one of you. My deepest heartfelt gratitude. It wouldn’t have been possible if you had not given me the confidence that I write fine and should give it a try.

I have so much to say —

Now, that the book is listed before time, I am uploading 3-4 podcasts together, so that by 15th, I read 2-3 chapters and make them available at one place for you to read.

For the time being – I have changed the LANDING Page of http://www.manitav.net to The Masquerade page as it has literally EVERYTHING – Podcasts, Blurb, Videos, Creatives, Posters, Sample Chapters, Giveaway, etc. So that you don’t have to search for any of it.

Do have a look –Β 

The Masquerade Complete

 

Next – GIVEAWAY winners will be announced tomorrow, ie 14th July 2020. If you have already ordered the book, you can let me know, I will keep your name saved for Spark & Spice giveaway.

I have been receiving hundreds of messages asking about my writing journey. I had decided that the day my book gets published. I will post a series of BLOG POSTS about WRITING, concepts of writing, process, journey, how to get published, and what goes behind the scene. I want to help people as much as I can but I wanted me to be at a stage where I can say – ‘let me tell you how it goes!’
I can now show you the way, but I can’t hold your finger and take you across. It is tough to reply to each so I will reply to questions here on every post.

I know, I haven’t been posting updates of my stories. I had even kept myself free for this month. But I forgot that a mom and a doctor are never free πŸ™ˆπŸ˜€

Beyond Every Border, the next update is long and super intense and every little distraction destroys the flow of my writing. I hope to finish it tonight. I have npot removed it. Don’t panic. Find recent uploads on the menu on the Home page. It’s there.

Love, Lies, Etc is an intense story, another one too close to me. I am purposefully delaying it because of so many commitments. I avoid doing something instead of doing a shabby job. Have a little patience about it. I know you will πŸ˜€πŸ€—

A word for people who had their Results in these days –
If you scored well – Congratulations! If you didn’t – Chin up!
Know that ‘scored well’ is not even a number. It is just a feeling. It is an emotion. It’s all about how you feel. Some people are not happy even with 90+ score and some are chilled even with bare passing marks. Not that any is a criterion. But you should know what is your basic aim in life – to become something that you are proud of – YOU!!! Not your parents, relatives, friends, society – no one!!
But YOU!
Be something that you are proud of, make a satisfying career doing things that make you feel satisfied, be a good human being, be useful to others around you and society in general, try to stay happy in whatever you achieve while striving to excel and be the best in everything you do. hard work always pays. Remember that.
And these school exam marks are not a destination. They were just a part of the journey. MOVE ON!

Last but not the least – Covid 19 is coming closer. The cases are on a rise. A lot of known people are now found to be infected. A friends’ grandparents, distant relatives, some people in the neighbouring colony – Parth, Bachchan family – so many positive cases – Now we are hearing about people we know. They will all be fine. I know because our prayers are with them. But please please stay safe. Please!!
It’s always better to stay safe. Stay home. Venture out if you cannot manage at home. There is no harm in staying extra cautious.

It’s just a matter of few days! They will pass soon!

Stay strong. We are together in this.

Love you all

M.

      Hearty congratulations to you Doc!
      This is just the beginning..many more to come.
      I can’t wait to read the book…but I have to wait due to some personal issues.
      Much love doc

    • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

      CONGRATULATIONS DI….!!!!! Glad that it got listed. From being a wp writer to a published author, it was a tough one but a beautiful one. Can’t wait to read TM. But sadly, I want to see the words, feel the pages and hold your book (and reportedly, my exams are approaching) so that will have to wait. But I do know that it will be worth the wait. About BEB, take your time because again everything you write is going to be worth the wait again❀. I was hell shocked when I read about Parth and the Bachchans. Hope they get well soon❀. Lots of love, di. Stay home. Stay strong. Di, how is your area with the cases? Has it decreased?

      • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

        The cases on my side are increasing too. Friends relatives and our distant relatives are positive.
        We can never emphasize much on the need to stay safe. I hope people stop taking it lightly and observe all precautions that are necessary.
        May God help people who are suffering πŸ™

      • Author GravatarAuthor Gravatar

        And all the best for your exams. I always tell people that this time will never come back. Make the best use of it to make a career. Books, stories will wait πŸ€—πŸ’ž

      So proud of you dii . I still remember the day when you started fire and ice I was so hooked with the story was very anxious and feared what if you end the story I will miss your writing but then you wrote next story. I was bewildered how can someone who is not author by profession write so passionate and interesting plot each and every time . I feel so proud of you today seeing you this far with so much love , warm heart and patience towards your reader and your connection with us is more like family which is very rare .My wishes, love , prayers are with you .
