Month End Update: April’16

Hello all the lovely readers!

This month has been a really tough one, mostly because I completed the first round of editing of my book.

My month in:


  • I completed the first round of editing. And as soon as I did, I was like:tumblr_my6nl4rO5O1s9816mo3_r1_500
  • Outlined Sinister Town in detail.
  • Won Camp NaNo April [60K words – editing and rewriting.]


  • Over The Dragonwall by Dennis Montoya and H.C. Strom – 4/5
  • Wonder Woman Earth One by Grant Morrison – 4/5
  • Carrion by Jonathan R. Rose – 1/5- DNF
  • Twisted by Lola Smirnova – 5/5
  • Warren The Thirteenth And The All-Seeing Eye by Tania del Rio- 4/5
  • Those Who Remain by Priscila Santa Rosa – 5/5
  • Death Unmasked by Rick Sulik- 1/5 – DNF

I beta read 6 chapters of my Austrailian critique partner’s book and it turned out to be an awesome experience. But the book that I beta read last month it turned out to be a disaster.


Latest Releases:

  • Jungle Book [It wasn’t great and I still prefer the old animated movie and series.]
  • KungFu Panda #3 [This wasn’t that great either. The directors totally fucked up this amazing series with such a horrible ending.]

Old Ones:

  • None… I was busy with NaNo and hence did not watch TV at all!


  • I’ve reached my first milestone on Ig- 500 Followers! It’s taken me ages to reach here but I hate following anyone and everyone to get follow-backs on my personal account.
  • TRB is running close with around 350 Followers already!

Thanks a lot for following me on Ig! If you haven’t followed me yet, then visit my profile (see below for link,) but please remember I follow-back only book related accounts and authors and friends, of course.

Check out all my pics on my Instagram.


  • I watched all the 5 seasons of Game Of Thrones and also watched the first episode of the 6th season. 😀 It airs every Tuesday here, so the second episode will be aired tomorrow (can’t wait!)tumblr_n6nkawW3hV1s2pa95o1_500
  • The entire month I struggled with a terrible one-sided headache and upon V’s insistence, I finally went to the ENT. He gave me a 10-day course for my Sinuses, at the end of which I’m supposed to get a CT scan done for my head. I just hope it won’t be anything serious because I can’t afford to take a break for the next 6 months.
  • I received my business e-cards from my publishers 2 days ago. They’ve promised to send the physical cards and other stationaries by the 2nd week of May, so Yay! Will share the pics as soon as I’ll have the physical ones.

Other than this, my month was quite uneventful as I was super busy with editing and Camp NaNo. Hopefully, I’ll get more time to relax and read in May 🙂

If you want to know more about me then follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (links below) as I’m always posting on these three sites. And yes, I love interacting there as well.

    1. Thanks a lot, Tony! Glad you liked it 🙂


  2. Nooo kind of GOT spoileeers lol I’ll watch the episode tonight ^_^
    You achieved a LOT! Congrats 🙂

    1. Haha! It’s nothing compared to the spoilers making round after this Tuesday’s episode! I guess you might have watched it by now, so I’ll say this, I’m so darn happy that Jon is back! Can’t wait for the next Episode!!!

      1. Me too! Tyrion and the dragons were great too, and Lord Bolton got what he deserved.

        1. Agreed! But I wish that the Bolton scene had played out otherwise – Roose Bolton killing Ramsay – it would have at least saved fat Walda!
          BTW, now that Jon Snow’s back, what do you think will happen?
          And if you’ve read the book, then what do you think about Balon Grejoy dying NOW? I mean he died well in the third book (or maybe 4th.) So, why now?
          I think his brother will help Daenerys (after Jorah and Dario rescue her) with the fleets. What do you think?

          1. Oh I’m hoping Ramsey will get what he deserves. One step at a time lol. Poor fat Walda… I think Jon Snow will rule Westeros since he’s very likely Tygarian AND Stark (Ice and fire) : D

            1. Exactly my theory! Cheers to Jon Snow sitting on the Iron Throne!!! 🙂


  3. Where did you find time to read with all that is going on? And you must be a speed reader.

    1. Haha! Yup, that I am! Mostly it depends on the books that I’m reading. If it’s good then I’ll read it in a day, if not, then I drag it for the entire month. Usually if I don’t finish a book in 4-5 days, it’s a sign that it is a definite DNF for me 😉
      Hope everything’s well at your end 🙂


  4. You did all that in April? Are you superwoman? Wow. What a full month!

  5. Heyyyyy Heena. Great to see you. Wow! You read a lot. I have two kiddies, so reading is limited to right before bed, or on the rare occasion when I’m waiting for a doctor or something like that. Hmmmm…
    My news, I broke my foot. It’s been really tough getting around. Plus, I’m an exerciser and haven’t been able to do so.

    1. Helloooo, Satci!!!! So good to see you too ❤
      And what!? Shoot, that's bad. So sorry to hear that. I hope you'll get better soon. I can understand your frustration, totally. Please take care and don't rush to go exercising again, please let your foot heal first. I know from experience that exercise fanatics usually are in a hurry to get back to their routines leaving the healing midway. My hubby is one of them…
      And now that you'll be resting, I suppose you'll get the much needed time to relax for a while and read books 🙂
      Get well soon dear! I'll pray for you ❤

      1. Thank Heena. Actually, I just had the crutches and boot removed on Tuesday, but I won’t be able to do much exercise for a bit yet. I tried driving today and it was a bit sore, plus walking is sore. Ugh! I want to exercise. Hahaha.
        Have a great weekend, and thanks again.
        🙂 ❤


  6. Sorry to hear about our headache. It sounds painful. But congrats on the first round of editing! What an achievement and on to the next round 😀 Disappointing to hear the Jungle Book wasn’t too good – I haven’t seen it myself but don’t have high hopes 😀

  7. How do you manage to write and edit 2 book, read 5 or more books and watch the all seasons of Game of Thrones? How do you manage your time?

    PS I love the Game of Thrones series. One of the greatest show

    1. Haha! I’m a multi-tasker and these are some of the things I love, so I always make it a point to take out time for reading, writing and watching series.
      And I agree! GOT is the greatest show ever!!!

      1. On GOT, did you know that Jon Snow came back to life? *gasp*

    Looks like you’ve got quite a bit done in April! Well done. And congratulations on winning CampNaNo! That’s a great wordcount. 🙂
    I can sympathise about the head. I suffer with migraines and some sinus headaches as well. They can make life pretty difficult. I hope your scan comes out ok. 🙂

    1. Thanks a lot, Phoenix! You too did great! 😀
      And thanks. I’ve noticed a lot of writers suffer from either of the two or both types of headaches. A lol! Is there something with writing and headaches? I wonder!
