Writing Your First Book: A Podcast

An update after simply ages! Hopefully the next one won’t be as long coming 🙂

Fittingly, it’s a look back at the launch of ‘The Shrine of Death’ – the journey of writing, publishing and marketing of it. I was recently approached by the lovely Simiran Choudhary of BrandPodcasters to do a podcast on ‘Writing Your First Book’. It was my first ever podcast, and such a fun experience! Thank you Simiran for reaching out to me… So glad to have connected with you!

The past couple of years have been about dealing with the worldwide pandemic and keeping one’s health and sanity intact. For me, it’s also been about figuring out my next steps after TSOD, which consumed my life for a few years back there, and now, as I stand on the cusp of those next innings (more on that soon, hopefully!), it felt wonderful to look back on that milestone moment of my life — the joys, the ups and downs, and the learnings that will perhaps be of some use to other new authors out there.

It also felt good to open up about my plans for the future, about my creative journey going forward, which I haven’t really done recently (I’ve very much been in hermit mode during the pandemic, as you might have noticed!). With 2022 winding to a close, this podcast ended up being as much about the past as it is about the future, and I am so happy to share it with you 🙂 If you have some time to spare this holiday season, do have a listen!!
