  1. Wowww... Interview?? Yaaayyy ! Congratulatioonsss..!!!

    1. Yeah, shall mention the details soon. Thanks Anita :)

  2. Hurray!!.Congrats! Luking forward for thy interview!

  3. Love a few of the sneaky ones :D

    My not-so-lil-cause-you-are-a-big-ass-champ :D

  4. Ahh... Am not sure how many unsolicited anonymous comments you get on your blog... but you clearly did let me know on a previous blog post (about travails of being a dark girl in India) that mine was unsolicited...

    So... when I see one of the points about anonymous comment.. I cannot just let go... even if it is just a blog with a total of 2 lakh views...

    Why I kept a tab on your blog thus far?
    I loved the story you were telling about Cal and yourself... in your posts titled 'Honest Post'.

    Why am I not going to leave my unsolicited presence here anymore?
    I admire the story more for Cal's character. So I will be better off reading Cal's blog if he ever decides to write one.

    Why did I leave a anonymous comment?
    Because you have it as an option on your comment form. Clearly, you have that in there just to invite trouble and may be feel proud about something.

    When your Novel is done.. you will have a long list of 'Fans' and hopefully a short list of not-your-fan. You have successfully added one name to the second list.

    1. I call the second list 'The Ignore List'. And you were up there the first time you appeared here. I know who you are, so its better you come out of that facade. My Cal gives two hoots about what you are better of with.

      Two words for you. Good Riddance.

  5. You are an awesome writer and a lioness at that, that's true no matter what. :) I love your blog to bits and hence need I say I would want to buy the first copy of that novel when you release it? Keep rocking dear!
