Hello December!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




It’s Decemberrrrrrrrrrrrrr, brrhhh! This is the best month of the year. Everything looks so magical around this time of the year. Isn’t it? For me this month is all about cold nights, fairy lights, gleaming roads, loads of tea, dazzling desserts, warm blanket, super cute socks, beautiful movies, pile of gifts and the Christmas tree. As soon as December arrives, I start drawing the lists of things like decorations that I would need for my tree, food that is going to be served on the Christmas eve, gifts for everyone and movies that I am going to watch through the month right till the start of the next year in my pjs, night after night. I feel most cozy, comfortable and happiest around this time and if I could have my way then I would never let December to come to the end.

Last week my Christmas tree went up though it still needs some more decoration but I would love to share the picture of this with you guys. Though it’s not really tall or extravagant or real but it’s still every inch scintillating in my opinion.





Feel free to share the pictures of  your Christmas tree. I would love to drool over them.

How Do I Feel?

Hello there,.. hope you guys were keeping well while I was away. Well my debut contemporary women fiction novel Fashionably Yours is pretty much out in paperback as well as in eBook (kindle). Though It will take few days before you can buy it from the bookstores near you but you can totally purchase it online at Flipkart Infibeam Amazon & Landmark

I have to tell you guys that I am quite overwhelmed by the response that I have received so far. The reviews are pretty mixed and majorly positive. I still have to pinch myself every time I see another review or photo people share on facebook, instagram or twitter of my book to make myself believe that it's not just a dream, that i have actually written a book which has been actually published by a publisher, no less but Harlequin. God knows when I am going to feel like a proper author, I wonder how other authors do it. It all feels so freaking cool and weird at the same time. Couple of weeks back I got the box of author copies and i remember that feeling when i picked up one of the books from the lot...I was actually trembling head to toe and could feel the blood rushing through my body. It was beyond the words experience. Couple of days back I saw a girl reading Fashionably Yours in the metro and that totally blanked me out! Someone was actually reading MY book! LOL! How freaking cool is that? 

Well to share my immense happiness and joy on the publication of Fashionably Yours, I am having a fabulous giveaway over my Facebook page where 3 lucky winners can win the 3 gorgeous hampers along with the signed copy of Fashionably Yours.
  
                                          


AND if this is not enough then I am having a one more giveaway over Goodreads where 5 lucky winners can win the signed copies of Fashionably Yours. 

Girls and Guys, both are welcome to enter the competitions. While girls can win the hamper or signed copy for themselves to snuggle with on the cold days, guys can gift it to their wives, sister, girlfriends or a girl friend. 

HURRY UP!! The competitions won't last long.

My Playlist For Fashionably Yours!


Helllooooo lovely peeps!! I am so EXCITED to tell you that my debut novel which is a woman centered romantic comedy, FASHIONABLY YOURS, has been published in UK and USA and is getting a great response. I am so thrilled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

FASHIONABLY YOURS is a story of a girl from Shimla arriving in Mumbai withe the dreams of being a serious fashion writer. This book is written in a diary format and is a hilarious journey of the girl with the pinch of fashion, glamour and love. 

The book is due to be launched in India by the end of November by Harlequin India and you can pre-order it at Flipkart and Infibeam which are offering the great discounts on pre-order. I guarantee you a 100% entertainment. 

So, now you have pre-ordered Fashionably Yours and waiting for it to be delivered at your door steps, in the meanwhile please check out this tiny playlist which inspired me while writing the book: 


·      *   Woman’s World- Cher: I absolutely love this song. This song has played a huge role in the character  development of Maya. Maya, the main protagonist of my book, is a very strong and an ambitious  woman. No matter how hard the situation is, she never gives up.

                                     
·     *    Fashion Show-Cory Lee: This is practically a theme song of Fashionably Yours. It’s such a  beautiful, cute and fashionably uplifting song.  All the glamour in the book is only and only because  of this song.

                                      
·     *    When You Say Nothing At All- Ronan Keating: I have heard every single song by Ronan Keating.  He has got the best voice ever and this song is soooooooo gorgeous and romantic that I couldn't help  but used it in the book when Maya and Aryan kissed for the first time. I went through some dark  personal stuff while writing the book and this song had done the wonderful job of hauling me out of  the darkness and helping me creating the sparks between Maya and Aryan.

Cover/Blurb Reveal #FashionablyYours

Hello Sugar! I am thrilled to share the cover and blurb of my book with all of you. As you already know that my debut chicklit/women fiction novel "Fashionably Yours" is getting published by Harlequin India in paperback as well as ebook and will hit the shelves by December 2014 and if you like the blurb and can't wait for December than you can get it a month in advance as the ebook would be available from November onward. Eek! I am EXCITED.  

HAVE A LOOK!!! 







Blurb:



“Maya Kapoor swaps the snowy mountains for the glittering ocean.”



Maya Kapoor arrived in Mumbai with a glamorous dream, quite literally. Maya wants to be a serious fashion writer for the high-end fashion magazine, Glamorous but luck is not in her favor. Instead, she lands a job with a local fashion magazine, Style. Maya hates everything about it but for now this is all she has. Despite all the odds, Maya is excited about living an independent, fashionable life in the city of dreams.


At twenty-five, love has eluded Maya. But when she bumps into the dashing photographer, Aryan Malik, she falls head over heels for his gorgeous smile and charming manner.


But Maya seems to be stuck in a rut - her credit card bills are sky-high, her melodramatic mother can't stop ranting, the boss is unbearably cruel, her younger sister has decided to tie the knot, and she's not sure if Aryan could love a simple, confused girl like her.


Will Maya get the fairytale life she dreamed about or will she let everything slip through her fingers? Read her diary and find out.




Tell me what you think of the cover or blurb. I would LOVE to know!!
