Book signings and discussion of The Forgotten Daughter in India

I have just returned for India and what a trip it was! I had book signings for The Forgotten Daughter, which has just been released in India, in bookstores across Bangalore and Delhi and also in BLR and DEL airports. It was wonderful visiting, as a published author, the book stores I had browsed back when writing was just a dream tucked away in a secret, wishful corner of my heart.

I also was invited by the wonderful Poonam Surie, to speak at the book club for the spouses of the Ministry of External Affairs of India and Ambassadors to India, hosted by the wife of the Foreign Secretary, Mrs. Kyoko Jaishankar at her residence. It was a wonderful and enriching experience.

    Wow Renita, it looks like you had a very busy, incredible time! Was it nerve-wracking speaking in front of all those people? Rebecca X

      Thank you so much Rebecca. It was an amazing experience. I was nervous initially, but once it started, I was fine. When I am nervous, I repeat the advice a good friend gave me: ‘You know your books best’. Just saw that you have finished your next book – cannot wait to read it, my friend. X
