"Not all things experienced can be understood. Not all things understood can be expressed."
A couple of years back when I started writing this story, there was no specific goal in view. The joy of writing was strong enough to keep one at the desk. But the day I finished it, I wanted to be done with publishing it and move on to the other stories lingering in my mind. I was too patient to approach traditional publishing houses and wait for years to be finally published (probably with a manuscript that didn't look like mine anymore!). Self-publishing was the way out.
Amazon Kindle Digital Publishing (KDP), Pothi.com and local book printers helped me deliver The Last Nomad to its readers. With no intention of competing with the established distributors and marketers, I witnessed the book choose its readers, one by one.
Relying on the online release and word of mouth, who had the faintest idea that a single story would take me on this journey?
I humbly invite you to the release of my novella, The Last Nomad, at the Metro Edition of Jaipur Art Summit 2019 on 3rd October. See the schedule below for details.
Thanks to Saumya Sharma for connecting me with Shri. Shailendra Bhatt, who patiently answered my questions. The individuals who have made this possible are countless to be named here. A big thanks to all my friends for being a part of this journey.
Without Amazon KDP, Pothi.com, Akshardhara Book Gallery (Pune), Pagdandi Book Cafe (Pune), and Shabd Book Gallery (Mumbai), Waari Book Cafe (Pune), and Bookworm (Bengaluru) this would not have been possible!
See you at the book release and interaction.
