Just three days back (23rd Sept) my new book Cherished was released and had a book reading at Bookstop, Koramangala, Bangalore.
The book store was a small place and I had invited just a couple of friends. Since it was a working day some of them who had promised to come, couldn't reach on time. Still it went off well.
Dr. Jennifer introduced me to the audience and then the book was released. Two of them read some of the pages from the book. Dr. Eva Bell, who had already read the book, asked me some thought provoking questions about the book. Then another person from the audience also asked me some questions about my journey of writing. On the whole, We had a very active discussion about the book.
The next session was book signing. The audience asked for autographed copies of the book. Almost all of them bought the book. They were also readers of my earlier book, The Second Choice.
Next was my turn. I thanked them for taking the trouble of coming from far, and for buying the book.
The weather was pleasant when compared to the previous day and the group was dispersed after Tea and snacks. Before leaving they all bought more books from the Bookstore.
