Here is Day 8 of the Blog Tour, this time, hosted by Marjorie Mallon. Head over to meet another key character in Marriage Unarranged!
Finally, the day has come!
No, not sit in a drinking establishment and sup a gin or three all day (though that may be quite fun!) but Publication Day.
After all this time, my book baby has finally been delivered!
Yes, Marriage Unarranged is finally out there, in the world, delivered to at least fifty Kindles this morning, and the paperback is also available too.
How am I feeling?
A bag of nerves. The feedback will hopefully start to filter in soon, and I know I love my book baby, but I really want you to love it too!
Described as Chickpea Curry Lit – Chick Lit with an Indian twist! And not just for chicks, you chap(patti)s too!

Aashi’s life was all set.
Or so she thought.
Like in the Bollywood films, Ravi would woo her, charm her family and they’d get married and live happily ever after.
But then Aashi found the empty condom box…
Putting her ex-fiancé and her innocence behind her, Aashi embarks upon an enlightening journey, to another country, where vibrant memories are created, and unforgettable friendships forged.
Old images erased, new beginnings to explore.
And how can she forget the handsome stranger she meets? A stranger who’s hiding something…

It’s a real pleasure to be staying in with Ritu Bhathal today to celebrate her latest book Marriage Unarranged as I’ve met Ritu in real life and she’s lovely! My thanks to her for inviting me to be part of this blog tour.
Staying in with Ritu Bhathal
Hi Ritu. Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me.
Thank you so much for having me, Linda. I am nervously excited!
I think we might just have guessed, but tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?
Today, I have brought my new book, Marriage Unarranged. This truly is my book baby, having lovingly created it over the last twenty years. It has reached adult status, age-wise, and now it is time for it to grow wings and fly the nest…

And here is Day 4 of the blog tour! This time it is the lovely Geoff Le Pard who is hosting, and asking all manner of questions!
I have known Ritu Bhathal, yes this lovely lady
pretty much since we started blogging. In that time she had blogged her heart out. Her prolific output, her range of subjects, her dedication to improving the craft all stand out. But she is almost always the first one to read and comment on any new post I launch into the ether and her approach has been universally supportive, as you would expect of someone who values her Bloggily.
A while back she took what she considered to be a brave step with a book of poetry but she need not have fretted. It was an excellent read, a proper dipper-inner. At the time she talked about the book, that project that had been on the slowest of slow burns. Would it ever come to be?

Here is stop one on the Blog Tour! Come and visit Sue’s blog to meet Aashi!
Thank you so much for being the first stop on the blog tour for my first novel, Marriage Unarranged, Sue.
It’s no secret how long it took me to get this far (twenty years, if you didn’t know), and I have documented my writing journey several times on both my blogs (so if you are interested, please check out my links below).
What I haven’t really told my prospective readers, is more about the characters, so over the course of the tour, I will be sprinkling little nuggets about various characters.
As today is Day One, I thought it would be a good start to introduce you to Aashi. Aashi is the main character in Marriage Unarranged. Though, why should I write about her? I’ll just hand the post over to her!
“Oh! Hi there! I’ve never done something like this before, so I’m not quite sure what…
