A relaxing lunch

photoI had a very relaxing and stimulating lunch with my family today. Good food and great conversation.

A refreshing fresh coconut drink was an awesome start to a three course meal.

Sometimes it is good to enjoy the little things in life that give us pleasure.

Fennel Lettuce Peas soup

soupRecently while waiting for my doctor’s appointment, I was attracted to a soup recipe in a magazine. I am generally not a soup kind of person but the mention of fennel (my favorite) in this soup recipe was enough to get me to read further. I tried it today and I absolutely loved it!!

German Town Fredericksburg

I recently visited a cute German town near Austin called Fredericksburg with my family. Everything about this place was very refreshing including the hilly drive. The terrain is so much different from Dallas so it is a like a breath of fresh air. From classy wineries to the unique antique shops on the Main street, the town has a very romantic feel to itself. There are plenty of fudge and chocolate shops but our favorite was the Popcorn shop (amazing samples to taste from). This town is worth visiting and if you have time, check out the most amazing hike in the Enchanted Rock State Park closeby.

Checkout some pictures:

Tips on creating a book trailer

Aditi-TXA video book trailer is a great way to create awareness around your book. You can upload it on Dailymotion or YouTube and tag it according to the genre of your book. It doesn’t guarantee sales but it does help in creating awareness.

Here are some tips for creating a book trailer:

  • Even though you may have the urge to make a long video, keeping it short and simple is the better way to go. The length of the video should be appropriate to keep the attention of the viewer. 90 secs is considered the ideal length.
  • If your book setting is unique, you can highlight that in the book trailer to create interest. Adding some landmark pictures of the place will be useful.
  • If your book is targeted for a certain age group, it is a good idea to highlight that in the trailer.
  • For the content of the trailer, think about what’s unique about your book.  How would you summarize it in a short and effective way.
  • Always have a call to action in the end, such as point to your website, Facebook page etc.

Workshop with Cindy Dees

DARA organized a workshop with Cindy Dees yesterday. It was simply mind blowing to hear her talk about character development in fictional stories. I have had character development classes before and read about it in books but Cindy covered it in real depth and had many layers in her process. Her insight on psychology was very intellectually rewarding.
