Back in India!

Very excited to be presenting this workshop in Chennai The Hindu Lit For Life 2018. This is the first time I will be back in Chennai since I did all the research for my novel The Pagoda Tree and I am looking forward to sharing the stories with my workshop participants and Lit Fest goers.

​​Also, I will be a part of an exciting discussion this Tuesday, the 16th and couldn't be more thrilled to be part of a panel talking about indie publishing. 


We'll be talking about how the new digital environment has boosted indie and self-publishing, the problems of promotion and marketing and indie publishing as a business model. 

Given that a 2016 report by the Association of American Publishers​ showed that the share of self-published books and books published by small publishers is now at a whopping 42 percent and larger than the market share of big publishers, what does the future hold?

Lastly,  join me tomorrow (Saturday 13 January) when I do live video on Facebook from Chennai, exact time to follow. Come on the trail of 'The Pagoda Tree' as I revisit some of the places where I did research for my novel. I'm excited to share my journey with you.
