Publishing My First Book – Definitely Not a Cakewalk

Almost everyone think about something or the other. Some try to express their thoughts. Some put their thoughts on a paper. Very few publish that paper filled with their thoughts for the world to read. I have been reading since I was seven and writing since I was twelve.

When I first started blogging and sharing my reviews on my website for various books I read, it was purely a hobby. But my persistent pursuit of my passion helped me understand new techniques, meet fellow reviewers, great writers and amazing human beings. Blogging has definitely made me a better writer.
I was literally on cloud nine when my blog was ranked fifty-five on Feedspot among ‘Top 75 Indian Book Review Blogs’. Check out the list here.

I dreamed of publishing a book for a long time.
It really took a while for me to implement my plan, prioritize my tasks, gather some courage and actually chase my dream. Thanks to Kindle Direct Publish for making self-publishing very easy for an amateur like me. Learn more about it here. My dream became reality just a couple of days ago.

I published my first book on Amazon Kindle. I named it ‘Poems of The Clipped Nightingale’. Its a bunch of short and sweet poems I put together over a period of time. I would have never done this, if not for the failures of my life.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for influencing me in good and bad ways to pull myself through many situations and stand here, today. Some motivated me that I can do it, some persuaded me that I was not even allowed to dream. I thank both.

‘Poems of The Clipped Nightingale’ is just the start. I’m working on a proper novel which will be released soon. I’ve plenty of stories to tell and I can write. So, I sharpened my nib and coming to scatter words. Feel free to read my short poems on Amazon Kindle Unlimited for free here! Feedback and reviews are much appreciated.┬áLeave your email ids in the comments below to get the ARC copy.
