  1. Publishing issue must be kept aside from Writing a novel....in this small but yet larger than life literary world, I love to see positiveness spreading rather than heartening topics taking over :( When i see more and more online stores like A1Books, eBay and amazon opening up, i feel a sense of advancement in this field.
