Current Status: Writing a book!

I don’t really remember talking about this on TalkingTails, but yes – it is official now! – I am writing a book!

Apart form helping me evolve as an articulator of thoughts, I also get to work with a phenomenal set of people – my publisher, editors, designers .. and a few friends who help me design the concept / cover, etc.

Here’s something my commissioning editor told me when we were casually discussing the business of publishing, editing and all that goes behind making a good book.

“Everybody is looking for the bestseller!”

– She didn’t really intend it to be a ‘quotable quote’ I am sure. But the inherent realism struck me – in so many ways are looking for the bestseller – be it the next big product, the anchor client, the magic formula or the ‘killer’ idea! We are all looking for the bestseller. Aren’t we?

    Best wishes for a ‘bestseller’ 🙂

    @ Debosmita: Welcome to TalkingTails! – I am entitled to talk about it.. (MY book, after all!) 😉 .. But I’d rather have an official public announcement / release about the book. We have some buzz-creation plans. You’ll find out soon!
