I have a good news for those who haven’t read my recent tweets or Instagram. So here it goes,
In October, I sent out a handful e-mails to some of the best literary agents in India. The e-mail was regarding the submission of the first 4 chapters of Deceived, my first book. (You can read about Deceived and all my other WIPs here.)
And I’m really happy to tell you that I’ve already received replies from 5 of the agents. I was completely blown away as I was expecting the replies by mid-January.
Okay, so the good news is that 3 of the agents have asked me to send them the full MS of Deceived and the other two are already up to represent me. I’ll be going through the contracts before finalising my agent (yes! Now I get to choose! Totally amazeballs!)
Here’s my tweet about it:
Good news: 3 agents have contacted me to read my full MS and 2 are ready to represent me already! I'm on cloud 9! PS: My neck is better nw.

Hello, everyone, I hope you guys are having a great week. Finally, I’m back from another one of those short… ahem… not so short break and this time I do have a valid reason for it: DIWALI 🙂
Belated Happy Diwali to all my lovely readers and subscribers. I hope that all your wishes come true on this auspicious occasion and may the festival of lights bring amazing things in your lives.
If you have been away from Earth for a long time and don’t know what Diwali is, then you can read about it here.
I took a few pictures (only a few as I was really busy with all the pre and post preps.) You can check them out on my Instagram.
I’ll be back with new and amazing posts once I’ve settled into my normal routine and also after I get a few words written for NaNoWriMo. Talking about NaNo, I’ve started outlining my second novel (Sinister Town) and most probably I’ll be writing the first draft in less than 15 day for this year’s NaNo. Looking forward to a “10K+ day” in the near future 😉
