Happy Father's Day !

Happy Father’s Day to all the father’s out there who love their children unconditionally.

A very special Father’s Day to the two darling Father’s at my home.

My very own Acha who lived all his life and still living for his two darling daughters. He did his best to give us good education and grow with values in life. We might not express the love we have but both me and my sister loves him and respect him always. My mom has always been in his side to raise as we are today.  If we have any success in our life its all because of them. It might not require a special day to remember and appreciate them but at least today we can go ahead and tell that how much we love them.

And, the other one in my family is Adi’s sweetheart Appa who lives entirely for him.  He could do anything to keep Adi Happy. With him BS is always a different person, the most caring, patient loving Dad ever.

I didn’t think about Father’s Day until Adi came and told me yesterday about it. He told me his teacher has said that its Father’s Day and he is so excited about it. It sounded as if he really understands about the day even though he is only five years old.

In the night we both sat together and made a beautiful card and he was also ok in giving his candy to Appa. Since it was late, we couldn’t go out and buy gifts for him.


While coming from school Adi also had a card which wrote Happy Father’s Day in his own letters. 😊. I loved it. 


Also, Adi was humming Father's Day, Father's Day, Father's Day

We both Love our Dad’s to the moon and back.

How to Recover from a Launch Disaster

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

How do you recover from a book launch disaster? Over 4,500 new books are published every day.  As someone who has been in publishing for years, I understand without the author's active role, little happens.

In recent years, I've watched authors launch books and participate in their launch teams. I've gotten advance reading copies of the book, read it then posted my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Barnes & Noble. I've taken online courses on launching books. As an acquisitions editor for a New York publisher, Morgan James Publishing, I've watched many other authors launch their books. Like many things in publishing, I've found not everything will go according to your plans.

While I've written more than 60 books, I haven't published a new book in several years. My newest book, 10 Publishing Myths released to the bookstores on December 17th. Last year, I asked New York Times bestselling author, Jerry B. Jenkins …

Face the Silence With Action

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

Are you getting silence as you reach out to literary agents or editors during the holidays? Yes you might get a little response such as holiday greetings or Merry Christmas. From my years in this business, there is often a shift in the community from right before Thanksgiving until right after New Year's Day. People put off sending manuscripts. If they have a book contract from a publisher, they often delay to sign it until after January 2nd and any number of other decisions of this nature.

My authors are Morgan James are still active and corresponding with me but little is finalizing and moving forward—so mostly silent in some ways. How do you handle this silence? Does it stop your writing and your work in the community? In this article, I want to give you some pro-active idea of what you can do to be productive and face the silence with action.

1. Read books on the craft of writing. As you read these books, use a highlighter and post-it notes to take ac…

Get A Realistic Publishing Perspective

By Terry Whalin @terrywhalin

I've spoken with many authors about their plans and ambitions for their published book. Authors pour a lot of energy into writing their manuscript and creating a book proposal or careful pitch of their book for editors or literary agents. These authors make statements to me like:

“My book will be a bestseller.”

“My book will make a lot of money.” 

“My book will sell ____ copies.”

Also over many years in publishing, I've had publishers tell me that my book would be in airport bookstores and they had plans to market and sell many copies of the book. Conventional wisdom in publishing says the larger the advance, the greater the publisher investment and the greater they will have to invest in marketing to get this investment back and more. I've been blessed to get a couple of six-figure advances—but I have lengthy stories (not good ones) about how each of these books turned out in the market.

From my years in publishing, I know and understan…
