Achha, here goes:
1. Something excessively exciting coming up on 15th August - am working with Indiblogger and HarperCollins on this. Doesn't it look cool? Plan to participate and Spread the word!
2. Only a slightly embarrassing interview of me on Surabhi's website, Womanatics. She has been too kind in her description. Bit of a giveaway happening there till 15th Aug, in case you'd like to give it a shot.
3. Also, Dipali reviews JMPE:
Just Married, Please Excuse is one of those books that can be read several times over, for the narration, the deceptive simplicity of the language, the amazingly funny imagery (a bridegroom looking like a tube of Colgate toothpaste immediately comes to mind), and the endearing quirkiness of the characters. Yashodhara does not spare herself at all, either, whether it be her predisposition to 'tamper tentrums' or her much verbalised yearning to be herself at all times.Full review here.
4. Finally, the Giveaway I announced here has led to my getting a lot of useful information from you guys - a big thank you.
I've already sent the book to three winners - Hitesh, IndianThoughts and Shankari. Will announce the other two on the 15th August (that does seem to be a date getting mentioned a lot in this post, doesn't it!).
In the meantime, the information is proving so useful that I've decided to extend the giveaway, and will be selecting 5 people who write in, randomly, at the end of the month to send them the book. So remember, it's very simple - if you go to your friendly neighbourhood store and don't find Just Married, Please Excuse there, just write to me at yashodhara dot lal at gmail dot com with the store name and location. If you do find it, take a picture with your cool mobile phone and mail it to me. Like Hitesh did below. :-)
So basically, there's a bunch of interesting things going on, and hopefully more coming up later in the month.'
In the meantime, if you've read the book, do let me know what you thought!
