April IWSG Post and Audio Books


I think March was a very productive month for me. I wrote lots of features for newspapers and magazines and did many book reviews in newspapers. And I also submitted my books to various Indian publishers and got good responses. I hope April will be as productive.

Looks like the pandemic is behind us. Fingers crossed that things stay the same as they are now.

As the first Wednesday of the month rolls into view, it’s time for another IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) post. IWSG was formed by Alex J Cavanaugh, the author of Amazon Bestsellers : CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars. The IWSG website is packed with writing related posts. To read the other IWSG posts, visit the group’s page.

April 6 question - Have any of your books been made into audio books? If so, what is the main challenge in producing an audiobook?

The awesome co-hosts for the April 6 posting of the IWSG are Joylene Nowell Butler, Jemima Pett, Patricia Josephine, Louise –Fundy Blue and Kim Lajevardi.

So far I have just one audio book - Festival Stories Through The Year. My publisher Harper Collins Children’s Book India brought out the audio book during the first pandemic lockdown in 2020.  Luckily for me, HCI handled everything.

What about you all? How did you all handle the audio book challenges?
