Waiting to become a book
This is a real-life story. It is about the manuscript of a novel impatient to break into publication. As its writer, I took the initiative to let the world know about its agony as well as its backstory.
I am an ad writer by profession and a writer by choice and inclination. I have 4 books awaiting publication:
1. The Last Gandhi Movie (a novel)
2. The Cloud & the Kite (a storybook for very young children, say, below six)
3. Chintu comes up with a loco idea (a storybook for older children in early teens)
4. Address Not Found (a memoir about family life in South Bombay in the 20th century as well as my life in advertising).
Although not comfortable with the idea of self-publishing, it looks like a close friend is about to do it with one of my books (The Cloud & the Kite).
