It’s been a while, and for that, I apologise, my dear readers.

I haven’t been wallowing in a puddle of misery because I got another rejection.

Nothing like that. Unfortunately it has been my health that has held me back from progessing further.

You see, I made a decision to become an Indie Author, and self publish my baby!

And, in order to self publish, there are a few things that need to be done.

  • Finish editing my book – so close, I am just in the throes of discovering my crutch words… cringe-worthy!
  • Sending it to my editor for that final look over
  • Formatting the text for paperback as well as e-book
  • Writing the blurb
  • Writing acknowledgements, etc. for inside the book
  • Setting a publication date
  • Designing a cover

Wait. What?

I actually have an item on the list that I can strike off?

Well, yes, actually, I do!

I have been hiding this for a while as I had my cover designed a few months back by the talented Rom Com author Kirsty McManus, who designs her own covers, and has done for many others too.

And so… drum roll…

May I finally present the cover of my soon to be published novel, Marriage Unarranged!

Oh my goodness, that was really nervewracking.

So, what do you think? I’d love to hear your opinions, my dear reader Peeps!

And I look forward to being able to give you a publication date before long too!

Thank you guys, for all your support. Seriously, you don’t know how much it means to me!

  3. Ritu, your cover is very striking and your book title is intriguing as is your blurb. The kind of book I’m interested in reading. πŸ™‚
    Good luck in finalizing your book. I too am in the process of putting out a novel (self-publish) and it requires a lot of details to take care of.

  4. Hope your physical health gets better, but more important your brain is working. And good. Hey! This crazy nutcase is going to be able on Monday to get my credit card, for me is an accomplishment hence I can buy your book.
    I do know a bit of your background so the title does fit the authors life . Can you believe that dating a woman from India she then went to the U.S with a arranged marriage and she lives now there whith the husband that is making a fortune?
    IΒ΄m glad for her, and the guy which I also met he is a good guy, my mommy loves him so that is that.
    Looking forward for the date-released of your book..
