I used to have a nagging tendency to procrastinate. In the last year, I have worked hard to beat it to a substantial degree and to be honest, I did achieve a high level of discipline only to deal with the temptation to push away things that could be done at a later date.
But those who are like me know that how this tendency comes back once in a while.
That is why I had promised myself that I will not go online except Twitter for some random posts here and there, but no blog, no instagram, or any other distraction until I finish editing Spark & Spice, until I finish a backlog of medical reading done, and get some major work done regarding clinics and personal domain.
Hello everyone, so here I am, after meeting my plans for the fortnight, and winning a small challenge with myself that I will do it by the first week of December.
Apologies for not posting anything here, and making you worried. Thanks to all those who sent messages and checked on me. I’m touched.
As promised, I’m here today to tell you about the whirlwind of the fortnight that passed.
What a time, it has been -editing Spark & Spice, one of the books universally loved by people who’ve read it, making changes regarding fixing of spelling and grammatical errors, adding dialogues, and lots of scenes, and falling in love with it all over again.
As I had mentioned earlier, this book is a long saga so it will be released in 2-3 parts. The first part is about Virat and Niyati’s love story in Paris.
I am keeping my fingers crossed, and trying my best to release it on Valentine’s Day 2021 as 14th Feb holds a very important part in the story at the initial stage.
If, and hopefully when, all goes well then exactly 10 weeks from today – ie February 14th, 2021, Sunday will be Spark & Spice Day – Keep it reserved 😃💖
Until then, I will keep posting about Spark & Spice on a post on EVERY SUNDAY like I did for The Masquerade as I want to keep you involved in the process of publishing. Each stage is a journey in itself. And I believe in enjoying the journey as much as the ultimate destination.
About stories on this blog – I will be posting an update on EVERY TUESDAY So, the next update of Beyond Every Border is on coming Tuesday and thereafter. The Size of love is a short story and that I will finish in between. Once, I am able to write regularly, I will take up other works left pending, like Love, Lies, Etc.
In the meantime, you can participate in Giveaways that I will announce in the coming week, and I will also announce the names of beta readers for Spark & Spice. It’s making me nervous and excited all over again, just like The Masquerade.
Coming to The Masquerade, I am thrilled with the numbers pouring in and the reviews that are nothing less than encouraging and motivating. Without going in exact details, let me tell you that it has done really really well and I have nothing but you to thank for it.
My heart is filled with Gratitude for all of you.
May God fill your lives with immense happiness, love, and good times.
Love you all 💖💖💖

Hey Manita!! Glad to read the update. Any post by you just puts a smile on my face! You always have something positive to share, say and convey!
Congratulations on the first step on S&S. Spark and Spice was the first book that I read of yours! And I am so glad that I stumbled up on that. I might have read it 4/5 times so far and it never stops giving me the feels that I felt reading it the first time. All the best for Feb 14th launch! I wish all the success and recognition for the book and yourself!!
The feeling is mutual, Saumya.
It feels so good to hear you. The best thing Spark & Spice did to me is that it brought so many people, readers and now friends, close to me. I will always be indebted to this book of mine.
Thanks for the wishes.

Congratulations di.. and all the best for spark and spice .. can’t wait to read it again and re-live the journey.. Spark and Spice was my first wattpad book and I remember finishing it in a go.. really really excited to reread ♥️ All the best and I hope this book gives you even more recognition and love 😘
Recently I read a book on kindle (when I saw that popped up as a tweet mentioning it reminds of the Manan to the reader).. it was one of the Amazon’s best seller.. trust me when I finished that book I remembered your spark and spice and thought that your book and your writing deserves that kind of hype for Spark and Spice .. all the best di.. hope it turns out to be the best ♥️♥️
Hey can you please tell me the name of the book, I would love to read it🙂
Oh yes! Even I wanted to ask that question 😊
It was this book ‘Right fit wrong shoe’ by Varsha Dixit
There are errors in this book like spellings and punctuations too.. I loved the story but felt it was rushed at many places .. yet it received so many comments and recognition in goodreads.. That’s when I realised writers like Manita di needs even more recognition .. di’s writing is so good , the set up, the dialogues , the twists and all .. I mean Spark and Spice is a wholesome book.. I really hope this book reaches higher level of audience .. ♥️
I’m overwhelmed, Pooja 💖💖💖
It means a lot to me Pooja that you remembered my book while reading another one. It’s a privilege and honour.
For me, I want my books to make people smile, feel good, and believe in hope, goodness, and undying love.
I hope I’m able to achieve that.
Thank you for your wishes.
Love you 💖💖💖
Love you tooo di..♥️ will be eagerly waiting for feb 14😍
Also will Spark and Spice will be a Triology then?
Yes. I’m planning a Trilogy… so that I can add more scenes and don’t have to edit anything. Last time, I had to delete a lot of scenes and dialogues from The Masquerade because I was much over the word count. I was asked to delete almost 70 K words. Don’t want that this time.
Would wait another fortnight to get a release of Spark and Spice. Looking forward to S & S.
Coming to your part of the journey, this one line clicked while reading which is so apt-
Safar khoobsurat hai manzil se bhi!!!
Release should be around 14th Feb, 2021, so it’s more than a fortnight 😊 But I will keep posting more about it till then.
That line is lovely 😍
Take care 🤗💖
Very much excited dii😍 All the besttt❤️
Thank you dear. Love you 🤗🤗💖💖
Can’t wait honey, you deserve it, I honestly can’t wait for it. Love you always
