First Sample Copy Of Deceived

Hello, all. This is a late post, so please forgive, but life’s been extremely busy (particularly this month.) Being the Editor In Cheif at Citrus, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the first sample copy of Deceived.

This is a late post, so please forgive, but life’s been extremely busy (particularly this month.) Being the Editor In Cheif at Citrus, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the first sample copy of Deceived.

The cover came out a bit dark in the sample, so the covers are getting reprinted at the moment and most probably we’ll have the first batch of ARCs delivered to the office by next weekend!

Anyway, here are a few pictures [I loved it even with a slightly dark cover and spent an entire day holding this baby]:

On a side note, as my responsibilities have increased at Citrus and as I’m writing the second draft of my second novel, I’ve decided to take a break from podcasting for a few months. So the podcast that I was preparing for this month won’t be going up anytime soon (it really takes a lot of time!)

Though, I’ll try and share flash fiction twice a month as an additional writing exercise.

I hope you guys liked the book’s sample. Please feel free to share your thoughts below. Comments are always welcome!

Ciao ❤

Month End Updates: February’17

Hello, everyone. This is a monthly post in which I share about my writing, reading and life in general.

My month in:

WRITING–

READING–

  • Nika: A Seychatka Novella by D.H. Gibbs – 4/5
  • The Little Yarmouth Abduction by Tim Van Minton – 5/5
  • Sting by Sandra Brown – 1/5
  • The Monster Of Florence by Douglas Preston – 5/5
  • Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben – 3/5
  • The Man You Scripted by Calvin Honors – 4/5
  • Amber Alert by Dan Lawton – 4/5
  • The House Of Secrets by Brad Meltzer – 4/5

Series:

  • A Series Of Unfortunate Events – NPH is beyond awesome and I absolutely adore the cast of the kids. They are all so perfect for their roles. If you haven’t yet watched it, then do it right now! You wouldn’t want to miss out on this epic series.eine-reihe-betrueblicher-ereignisse-s1_3569
  • Sherlock Holmes – Finally(!!) I started with this series! I haven’t yet finished even a single season because Vishal made me wait for him to get the Thunderbird connector for my Mac so that we both can watch it on TV. So far I’ve just watched 4 episodes and I love them.

Movies:

On TV:

  • Saving Mr. Banks
  • Julie And Julia
  • 30 Days Of Night
  • The BFG
  • The Notebook

In theatre:

  • Resident Evil – Last Chapter
  • Hidden Figures
  • Lego Batman
  • John Wick – Chapter 2

Miscellaneous:

  • I’ve been appointed as the Editor In Chief at Citrus Publishers.
  • I hosted my first International Giveaway for Deceived. It was an exclusive subscriber giveaway, i.e., only for my Newsletter Subscribers. And the winner of the Giveaway was – Andrew (my very good Goodreads friend) – Congratulations!
  • Seeing a great increase in number of new subscribers in the month of February, I decided to giveaway an e-book of Deceived to a random winner and the winner was – Diwya – Congratulations!
  • Seeing such a heart warming response to my giveaway, I’ve planned to host one next month again, but this time it’ll be open for everyone and not just my subscribers. I’ll try to set up a Rafflecopter one so that it’ll be easy to keep scores and such. So stay tuned!
  • Also, this month I also hosted my very first Facebook Live Author Event powered by Mystery Thriller Week (MTW) 2017. I wasn’t expecting anyone to come and attend the event at the designated hour as I got late in making the announcements and inviting everyone. Also my time zones are different than my friends overseas, so I thought that it’ll be a huge barrier. BUT to my pleasant surprise, a lot of MTW members and my Fb friends showed up for the event. It all made me feel so grateful to be surrounded by such amazing friends!
    Next time I’ll make sure to invite each every one of you all in time.
  • Also, I won an award at the MTW – Instagram VIP!

  • Also, near the very end of the month, Deceived got ranked #199 (as of today, it will keep on jumping up with each and every vote) out of around 700 books on Goodreads’ Most Anticipated Thriller Of The Month.
    If you guys have a minute, then please visit here and vote for Deceived to help me it get ann even better ranking! Each and every vote is greatly appreciated!
