Yaaaaayyyyyy!!!!! People, I am glad to say that I have (at last) decided to self-publish an eBook in Amazon 🙂 Before you think that I sent my manuscripts to hundreds of publishing houses and got selected by some big publisher, I must admit that self publishing an eBook is about writing a book, formatting it and publishing it through a single-click in our computers. That’s it. It’s so easy these days.
Actualy, I planned to write this book same time, last year. I wrote a couple of pages and then procrastinated on the rest until yesterday. I searched for that file, but was not even able to locate it!!
I swiftly wrote two pages today and I have set a goal to finish writing (and publishing) this book within 30 days. By March 27 (hopefully), I should put up another post here saying – It’s done!!!!!!! Yaaaaaaayyyyyyy!!!!!!! Let’s remain optimistic for now 🙂
I have not decided on the actual title, but it would be about what foreigners could to when then come to India. It’s not going to be a tourist guide, but it’s more of a happiness guide. It would be on the lines of, ’50 Exciting things you should do when you visit India’, or something similar. Of course, I am not writing this for the Indian audience. It’s mainly for people from US and UK, visiting India.
I wrote the first two exciting things today (1. Watch Bollywood/regional language movies, 2. Eat Indian Sweets). I just need to write 48 more things like this and my book will be ready to publish!!
Frankly, I am not worried about whether the book is going to sell or not, how many copies will it sell, how much to price it, etc. I just want to complete writing it and immerse myself in the experience/challenge of creating a longer-piece of literature. Let’s see how it is going to be 🙂
Yes, you can help. Please suggest some exciting activities that foreigners could do when they visit India, in the comments section below. I will pick some of them and expand it in my book.
I am restlessly waiting for March 27…………………… Did you notice, I didn’t mention the year? Safety net, just in case I am not able to finish it 😛 😛 😛
