  Hello, I’m Amrita.

If I can manage to stick to the deadline, then my guidebook for new writers, Let’s Sell Your First Book! will release end of March, 2018 (what?!). In case you’re wondering, I’m actually a freelance writer and publishing consultant. You can hire me to edit your manuscript or design your book cover or your author website. My clients really like me. Here’s all the stuff I’ve written around the web. I’m a total glutton and hopeless at following directions. Just two random facts. Oh, there’s also a blog I run, on writing and book marketing that you may really, really like.

Don’t hire Amrita. She’s brutally honest and will tear your manuscript to pieces with her ridiculous comments. She doesn’t care how much you love your characters and she’ll laugh at your inability to spell. She will also beat your manuscript into a shape you never thought was achievable. On second thoughts, hire her.

Amrita is intuitive with design, because she really was able to capture what I was looking for even though I wasn't even sure what that was. I am a graphic designer myself, and I was clueless as to how my book cover should look. Amrita is highly skilled in both the technical aspect and in the artistic aspect of design.

With all the advice that’s thrown at any new writer looking to get published, this one’s heard the most:

Build an audience around your work.

I’m willing to put all my bets on all-time-marketing-genius-man Seth Godin’s advice for writers:

“The best time to start promoting your book is three years before it comes out. Three years to build a reputation, build a permission asset, build a blog, build a following, build credibility and build the connections you’ll need later.”

Early 2017, when I’d just started working with new writers, I encountered a client who is an aspiring writer looking to self-publish his book. And the conversation soon turned to audience building for authors. He was extremely excited about the topic, till the time I asked him for his social media handles and blog address. He stared at me, first blankly and then with confusion.

“But I’m not published yet. What would I even post?” he asked.

  A Day in the Life Of


It feels like I’m about start leaking marbles from my ears. Can you see it? Can you see the veins against my temples starting to split at their seams? In a moment, I’ll leak and be declared insane.

You, darling reader, would be happy to know, that I have survived a meltdown. Of elephantine proportions. There is a chance I’m exaggerating, but allow me this. Saying that I have “been busy” would be an understatement. You already know that I have been in this state of busyness, for a while. But last week was it for me.
