I always thought of myself as a writer and of course an author too…an author of countless articles and a few short stories. Becoming an author of a book is different though and that is happening soon.
I signed a contract with Vishwakarma Publications for the publication of my first novel after winning a contest at PILF (Pune International Literary Festival) in September 2018.
The novel is a thriller set in Mumbai. A murder mystery. It will be out in September 2019.
Vishwakarma Publications, a Pune based publisher, was founded in 2013. Vishwakarma is also the official title sponsor of the Pune International Literary Festival which is held every year in Pune. It is a part of the Vishwakarma group which is into education.
I am happy that I have been accepted by a traditional publisher and that too a reputed one. And of course the fact that they are Pune based is a matter of great joy!
