From My Heart – The Week It Was

Vetri Vinayagar Jai! Ganapathi Bappa Moriya!

Dream! Don’t stop chasing your dreams, because dreams do come true. – Sachin Tendulkar.

Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time, was an unexpected opportunity blessed by the Publisher, my first compilation. The date of the project got delayed because of bad printers who never understood the word “deadline”. Once we have our hands on it, we will SPAM the Facebook timelines posting pictures of it.

Coming to the “Colors Different Shades Of Life” contest, the results were read by Ganesha, making all the winners fly to Seventh Heaven.

Well Begun Is Half Done” That I second. We’ve started well, now we’ve to carry the good work we did. The hard work we did is well appreciated by all… be it the response to emails, prompt replies to the Facebook Messages, the #Entry photographs, the #Teasers, the Ganesha, the Winners and Guest Authors list, we did our best. We’re very Happy!

To be true, we rocked the Facebook on September 17, thanks to all the winners! Here’s a glimpse of it.

I’ve to concentrate on compiling, editing and printing the book. Blurb, winners and guest authors list, Publisher, Editor and other required details are shared with our designer. I am hoping to release the book cover soon, and I am planning to release the book on Jan 1st. (Tentative).

The next big news is a surprise. Vidhya and I, are working on the same. It is actually ready, but before releasing it to public, we want to make sure everything is in place and is working fine. Here’s a teaser…

For my last post, I received only one comment, I understood, whoever you are, unless you are regular and dedicated, you will not be successful. I started blog hop from last weekend. I am happy to read fresh blogs instead of mere brand promoters. Hoping and wishing to see my regular readers back to this place. Will you comeback to read me? I will leave it to time to answer.

Till then, take care.

Have a great week ahead!

Prost! (Cheers)

From My Heart – Without You

I am bad at opening a blog post or a short story. Most of the times, I open with a quote, and support the quote with my points. Not this time…

This week is going to be really special, for bloggers, for authors, and for readers. As I said in my last post, my focus got shifted from blogging to books and manuscripts. My next anthology, my first compilation, Friendship Bonds Beyond Time: a collection of twenty-five wonderful stories, is going to be released on September 17, 2015, Ganesh Chathurthi. The book will be available on Flipkart and Amazon. Support all the authors published in the book. Please buy the book, read all the stories, and share your feedback with us.

The results of my second compilation “Colors Different Shades Of Life” will be out on the same day. Thanks to Shades Publications for the wonderful support. I thank the guest authors for their contribution and I wish good luck to all the entrants.

How’s this?

This template will take you closer to your dreams on September 17, 2015! #ColorsDSOL #Results

Another good news: Shades Publications will launch their website on the same day. It is going to be a very BIG DAY for all of us! I am looking forward to it.

Storizen, an online magazine, has come up with a new campaign “How did you conceive?”. The campaign is good, and it is picking up slowly. I read a few response and I found Adite Banerjie’s response and Shobhan Bantwal’s response engaging. In case, if you like the concept, do send in your response and get featured.

A Software Engineer’s life is not a happy tale to be printed in words, as he or she has to undergo a lot of troubles to sustain in the industry. Here is a cry which I scribbled a year back inspired by a few people here. And this poem has been published in Storizen.

From My Heart – Life is Beautiful

It’s been close to two months, since I published a post. My focus shifted from blogging to reading/selecting short stories for the upcoming anthology – Friendship Bonds Beyond Time: a collection of twenty-five wonderful stories. I am even working on three secret projects. That’s how our teams want to call them. I shall spill the beans once we get into print.

I enjoyed writing short stories, still I felt void inside my heart. A void I could not explain in words. A void because of the longing for feedback and comments for my work, and to read fellow blog posts. I sent my works to a few close friends for review, and I received feedback, which solaced my heart, yet I felt I should write a post on my blog.

Vidhya and I went on a trip to Switzerland for five days, visited famous cities and places (Lucerne, Engelberg, Mt. Titlis (We went to the top of Mt. Titlis and made video calls on Skype to my Parents and Vidhya’s Parents), Grindalwald, Interlaken, Swiss Caves, Unterseen and Rhine Falls) and posted photos on Facebook. I shall post my experience soon, a travelogue after a long time!

Here I am, yet another time, planning to regularly post quotes, poems and excerpts of my work in progress. I hope this will help me overcome the void I feel inside.

Will I be able to succeed? I will leave it to time to answer.

The quote for the week is… (it’s a old quote posted long back)
