I am excited to announce that my debut middle grade novel, Lost Between Worlds, will be published by Talegari Tales (@talegari.tales). Thanks to Manasa Gururaj, the founder of Talegari Tales for this opportunity.
Early this month, I sent out the manuscript to the publisher and I am waiting for the comments. The book will be released in 2021.
For my book, I met an incredible illustrator, Abhilasha Khatri, @abhilashakhatri0603, who drew the illustrations for the book. The illustrations in the book are great and I hope to share a few in a couple of posts.
Last but not the least, I want to thank my family for their support. My parents, Dr. Shivarani and Dr. Sukumar for their encouragement to pursue writing provided I have a professional career. I also want to thank my mom, Shivarani (@rani_shiv) and husband Pradeep (@goudapradeep) for reviewing this book multiple times and providing critical feedback.
I also want to thank my family and friends reviewers, especially my youngest and eldest nieces, Shreshta and Niyati. The other reviewers are my brother-in-law, Sirish, my sisters-in-law, Swetha and Sneha (@snehagovindalwar), my cousin Amruth and my dear friend Mythili (@mythili178). The manuscript has undergone 16 revisions to date and thanks to the feedback, every revision made it richer and worth purchasing once it is released 😉
In the next few weeks, I will share more information about my book, Lost Between Worlds. Stay tuned for more updates.
