My First #Book and My First Year of #Blogging

I can’t even believe that it’s been a year. On the first day of Sunny September, out of an impulse I created a WordPress blog. I don’t remember  from where I got the inspiration, but somehow the name “Trablogger” came to my mind and fortunately it was available. And thus I took my first step.

When I look back, it was one of the best things  that happened to me so far. It gave me confidence, direction and a purpose.  All of your likes and comments were/are so encouraging. It obviously gave me the much-needed confidence. When I look at it now, it might have even made me a bit arrogant, that I even started to give Photography advises like an expert on that field. Still I’m just another self learned amateur photography enthusiast.

But the real confidence boost was given to my writing. I never thought I could write anything interesting. All of your constant support changed that belief in me. The confidence escalated to over confidence and I took it to one step further and attempted to write my first book.

Today that  dream has materialised. Today I am publishing the Kindle edition of my first book. What could be a perfect occasion than the first year anniversary of my blog, to publish the book?

Here it is.  Click here to have a look at Amazon

It wouldn’t have possible without all your constant support and encouragement.

Those who want the paperback version, do contact me using the contact form at the end of this post. I will get back to you with the details. As of now the paperback edition is within India only.

Back in Nov. 2014, when I reached my 100th post, I thanked all the people who were encouraging me that time. When I checked that post, most of them are still with me and still encouraging me. I am truly grateful for all the lovely people out there.

So I am taking this opportunity to thank everyone who encouraged me during my blogging journey and those helped me unconditionally at various stages of writing this book.

Thank you… Continue reading My First #Book and My First Year of #Blogging

Theme :  A perfect love story. And the Chain Repeats.

Story till now :  Anna, 32 year old successful publisher cum CEO of the publishing house, goes to attend her best friend Mellissa’s marriage. Anna meets Mellissa at Toby Blackwell’s big estate. To her surprise, Anna meets Alex, a popular author from whom she wanted a publishing contract who happened to be her ex-lover- at this big mansion. Mellissa mentions to Anna about a cupid spirit that resides in that big mansion. Possibly because of that effect, Anna gets confused between her feelings towards dashing Alex and charming Toby. The story progresses through various incidents happening as the wedding day of Mellissa approaches. The question still remains.. Whom Anna is going to choose? whose love is true.  Read the story.

We have amazing writers who can do wonders with mystery  and fantasy. And are very brilliant to play around with many characters. So I thought of making it a bit challenging by giving a theme this time.

Why don’t you try a story for kids this time, with 1 character, or maybe 2 or 3 characters?

This is the theme for this year’s second Flash fiction Chain
