This week was Diwali, the festival of lights in Hindu culture. It’s also the week that the blog tour for my latest novel, An Unlikely Goddess has kicked off. Blog tours are great fun because it’s a virtual version of a book tour without the sweaty palmed anxiety about whether or not people will show up to hear me.

What’s also fantastic about blog tours is that each host can set his/her topic, based on what’s of interest to their particular readership or interests.

And is there a lot to talk about with this book!

J.C. Martin wanted to know about Hinduism’s attitude towards daughters since the book opens with a mother’s surprising reaction to the arrival of her first child.

Mahesh Harvu asked for more information about how to write a book and, perhaps of equal interest, how to publish a indie eBook.

Aya Walksfar interviewed me on a hybrid of issues from feminism in South Asian society to how to get to that to-do list we all have.

Hope you’re hop around with us and stop in to whatever subject is most interesting to you.
