My July IWSG Post and the book world I would live in


June was a super hectic for me, two of my books are hurtling for publication in the next few weeks. So, the entire month I was switching between reading edits notes, editing, going through proofs, finalizing covers, going through typeset copies of both the books. Luckily one is a nonfiction book and the other is a fantasy (my favourite genre). Sending the blurbs, author note, acknowledgement, dedication etc. In between, I was doing all my freelance writing and columns. But it was a nice tension, not the worrying kind but adrenaline rushing type.

I had a school session on the 20th for students of grade 2 and 3 of GIIS (Global Indian International School). The children had returned after two years of lockdown and were super enthusiastic and super keen. I had a wonderful time reading two stories and autographing the books for the students.

Enough of my news, it’s the first Wednesday of the month, it’s time for IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) post. IWSG is an online group of writers, it was started by Alex J Cavanaugh the author of Amazon Bestsellers, the successful Cassa series of books : CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars. The IWSG website is full of informative writing related posts. To read the other IWSG posts, visit the group’s page.

July 6 question - If you could live in any book world, which one would you choose?

The awesome co-hosts for the July 6 posting of the IWSG are J Lenni Dorner, Janet Alcorn, PJ Colando, Jenni Enzor and DianeBurton!

I would choose the Harry Potter world. I am a huge, huge, Potter fan. I can easily visualize myself in Hogwarts attending Potions classes and Defence Against The Dark Arts and walking through the corridors with my wand in hand.

What about you all? Which book world would you live in?
