“Who I am and why I am here”

Hiya all!

I am Arpita from West Bengal, India. I graduated last month as an electronics engineer (Yippee!). As much as I love my engineering textbooks, I care a tad bit more for the books that tell stories. So, while I figure out what to do with my career as an engineer, there’s one thing I badly want to do that has virtually no connection to engineering: write fiction!

I have always wanted to be an author (in between wanting to be an air hostess, a hair dresser, a doctor, a painter and finally, an engineer). I love to write anything: from diary entries to fiery articles on social issues. I used to blog on blogspot before I joined WordPress. I started this site almost on a whim, because somehow I felt I must have a WordPress blog if I were to be an author (it’s crazy, right? But one of my favourite authors blogs on WordPress, so you get the motivation).

The aim of my blog is to establish a readership for my stories. I have been told time and again by friends that I have a gift with the written word. I recently wrote a book of short stories, Bound by Life (click to pre-order), which I am self-publishing on Kindle on 20th June this year. So, I guess it is the right time to let you bookworms and bloggers know about my works. I am so excited to hear your feedback on my stories!

Besides that I publish interviews, reviews as well as share my two cents on the craft of writingย on this blog. I also review on request, so if you got a new book coming out, feel free to send me a reviewer copy in exchange of an honest review.

So now you know who I am and what I love doing. Let the journey begin!

Much love. Keep blogging!

    Hi Arpita,

    I would love to send you an advance copy of Precocious for you to read & review.
    Would you like to send me your address (private message via Twitter may be the most secure way to do this) & I will arrange?

    Warm regards,

    Hi Arpita! I loved reading this. he part about wanting to have many different professions resounded with me! I still have no idea what I want to be when I grown up, so I’ve taken the Blogging 101 course to see if this fits ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can’t wait to see how our blogs progress with the course. Happy blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

        Thanks Arpita! I’m excited to start blogging more. I think we will learn a lot of things from each other, and can’t wait to see what our bogs look like in a few weeks time ๐Ÿ™‚
