Happy New Year 2023

Beginning the year with the official announcements related to my upcoming books.

Goa, Oct’22 – signed the contract for book 2. (Raya’s second case)

Kolkata, Dec’22 – signed the final agreement for book 3. (a true crime story and my first commissioned writing project)

2022 was the year of fitness and ‘behind the scenes’ for me. Wrapped up the year with immense gratitude, happiness, and love.

Fingers crossed that 2023 will bring more success, joy, and peace and provide ample reasons to celebrate.

Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful New Year. May all your dreams come true in 2023. Stay healthy, stay safe.

I’ll update the status of the books as and when I have news about them to share. Stay tuned for further details.
