My Forays into the world of Fiction Writing


 
My journey through the world of fiction writing has been slow and patchy. It started way back in 2009, when I gave my first short at fiction for a contest and one of my entries was short listed for the final round and finished 7th among the 15 short listed ones. That gave me confidence to start writing fiction.

Then I continued to dabble in fiction on and off with limited success – winning a few accolades in different blogger contests. But the next real break came in 2012 when my story was selected in the science fiction genre of Fablery’s multi-genre anthology ‘Ten Shades of Life’. That gave me the opportunity to see myself in print for the first time.

Then in 2013, I made an attempt at self-publishing along with two co-authors Radha and Suresh. We managed a Kindle book 'Sirens Spell Danger' with 3 novella size story that got decent acclaim in blog-o-sphere, a humungous number of free downloads and enough sales to break even.

For 2014, amidst a busy schedule that is threatening to put paid to my writing hobby, one of my stories has made it to the short list of yet another writing contest. (in paranormal genre) Here is the link to the story.
Would be needing reader votes to make it to the next level of the contest where 3 of the 5 would be shortlisted based on votes and 1 will be chosen for a book publishing contract. So people wanting to see me moving to the level of publishing an entire book by myself in 2015, can click the link, scroll down and click the little heart there to vote for me.  Of course the other stories in fray are quite  good too. So if you have time you can read through all of them and vote for all those you like.
