Authors and Illustrators

Having had a short brush with being published, I can just about begin to appreciate the high of seeing one's novel released, seeing it on shelves, getting fan mail........

A couple of my ST friends already have a few books to their name- Meera and Praba have written Tulika's Dinaben and Pratham's Subbu the signal. Here is another one joining the list. I met Lavanya, the illustrator of DC- Mango 's Tara Tambe, Forest Friend in Mumbai. She has done colourful illustrations which truly enliven the tale of how an obnoxious child turns into a friend of the forest animals. The book is ideal for kids aged 6-8yrs.

Am currently reading The Reluctant Detective by another blogger Kiran Manral. The first chapter itself had me in splits, with the gems of self deprecating humor that are woven in by K or should I say Kay.

Completely admire these ladies l! Keep writing and I will keep reading.
