Dear friends, it has been a while since I have posted in this blog. The joy of reading is such that once we begin reading an exciting and an interesting book, we don’t seem to notice how time flies by. This love for reading inspired me to write books on my own.

I have begun to take small steps into the vibrant and brilliantly creative world of writing and authorship and every moment of this world has been a precious learning experience for me. It takes a long time to complete a novel. While I am writing one, I wanted to take a break during this interesting and ardous task. Therefore, I wrote 3 books to keep my thoughts flowing and garner new ideas for my novel through these 3 books.

My journey into the wonderful world of writing began with the first book on poetry and travel photography. This was followed by a collection of short stories (I will have a separate post about the short stories collection) and a second Ebook on poetry.

Friendship and Life

Friendship and Life

This is my first published poetry Ebook. I recently updated this new cover for Memoirs that I created myself.

For the lovers of poetry who love topics such as nature, flowers, romance, friends, relationships, fantasy, seasons, emotions and many more little joys of life and who love traveling, this Ebook might appeal to them. A photo-poetry Ebook, this Ebook will show you pictures of several beautiful natural locations that I travelled to around the world. This Ebook has got multiple modest and honest reviews too and it makes me glad to know random readers picking up this book and reading my poetry!

This Ebook can be downloaded from Barnes and Noble , Smashwords, Apple IBook stores, Kobo and Sony Ebook stores.  You can FREE DOWNLOAD the first 25% of this Ebook from Smashwords!

Poetry Collection

Poetry Collection

This is my second published Ebook which primarily revolves round the vibrant theme of fantasy, surrealism and converges into reality in many of the poems. I conceptualized and made the cover myself.

To name a few, there are interesting poems about Phoenix-the mythical bird; Sphere-a repository of power that fell in wrong hands; Rains-a mythical tale of how a farmer kept his resolve and fought his thirst; Tale of four seasons; Halo-a mystic aura; Love is everywhere and many more.

Thus, one moment the readers would find themselves in a magical and vibrant world of fantasy and infinite imagination through enchanting stories, and the next moment the boundary of fantasy would merge with reality.

This Ebook can be downloaded from Smashwords and Amazon stores. You can FREE DOWNLOAD the first 30% of this Ebook from Smashwords!

So, this spring-summer if you want to explore new genres, spend some of your free time travelling and love to read poetry, 2 of my Ebooks are out there waiting just for your touch! Have a wonderful Spring- Summer bash!

 


 

A big Hello and a warm Welcome to everybody visiting this blog in the summer of August and beyond.  It has truly been a while since I have updated this personal blog of mine. Reason? Since many of you know by now from the content of my blog that I am an author and a poet, so I am involved in writing projects most of the time. However, being involved with this blog and writing down my thoughts here, lets me feel connected to my friends and visitors who visit this blog at their own leisure. It feels wonderful to be a part of such a vibrant and diverse community of bloggers and writers who offer words of advice, information, knowledge and a little peek into their exceptional talents and works. So, I salute all my friends and visitors of this global diaspora for the talents and the enthusiasm they possess.
Of late, I have been travelling to various natural locations, and searching for themes to write my next Ebook, which would be my 2nd Poetry Ebook that would be released very soon in the coming months . I like to experiment with various themes in poetry, and currently fantasy, realistic and speculative themes and story telling have caught my fancy. So, you can expect to be in a world of fantasy realms and at the same time find your feet on the realistic grounds of life in my next Ebook.

Presently 2 of my Ebooks have been released. One is a short story collection named 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life which is a contemporary fiction inspirational and intriguing read.

The second Ebook is named MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life
and you can see the Ebook cover image at the top of this post.

What is so special about this Ebook? Well, first of all this Ebook contains a collection of 41 poems and 1 article which draw their inspiration about the themes from Nature, friendship and Life.

Tell me, how do you feel when you happen to walk through a vast green field, full of wildflowers, dandelions, tulips with a pleasant breeze under a blue sunny sky? Do you love nature? Do you yearn to sit under the shadows of giant trees and just pass your time leisurely and feel the essence of Mother Nature around you?

In the materialistic world of today, these thoughts and feelings may be a distant dream. But, I believe that connecting ourselves at least once in a while with Mother Nature could just do the trick of healing us from within, and bestow us with renewed enthusiasm and energy to see life in goodness and face life as it is and how it is.

My book MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life which is available at Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Apple iTunes, Sony, Diesel and Kobo stores tries to take a peek into Nature’s miracles, her beauty, and into the depths of vivid imagination. A few words and lines of happiness, love, and respect for Friends and Life. The Ebook is colourful with a splash of original nature photographs taken during my travels to a diverse number of locations across Europe.

If you would like to know more about my Ebook – here is the SPECIAL OFFER for you:

Throughout AUGUST until 2nd September 2012, MEMOIRS:THE SOULFUL RECOLLECTION Friendship and Life will be available at Smashwords Stores for only $0.99 i.e 99 cents by using the Coupon code DU75H.

Smashwords book link –  https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/121492

I am very happy that my Ebook has found its worthwhile place in the hands of interested readers who have chosen to not only read, but also review this Poetry e-book at their own choice.

I would like to highlight one of the reviews here on this blog, which has also moved me. I encourage interested readers to review my book once you read it, as it will inspire me to pursue and publish more diverse works of poetry in future.

Here goes the review :

Review by: Jeff Dawson on Aug. 07, 2012 :  star star star star
The first poem Myth of Urvi is guaranteed to please the followers of Tolkien and others. It is the first mythical one I have ever read. I would definitely target the younger crowd to draw attention. Very nice.

The rest of the works paint a wonderful adventure through life. We’ve all felt the emotions as we travel through our journey of life. Very well done.

Almost forgot, I enjoyed the smattering of pictures through the work. They helped set the tone and allowed for reflection.

I found few personal favorites: Dear Friend, Do not Change, The band of Friendship and last but not least, A child in you. This one reminded me of my dad. He passed at 84 but up until his departure he always had this childish gleam in his eyes. I believe it was his view of life (to never grow old) that kept him surrounded by great friends and company. He is missed.

Thank you for the wonderful thoughts.

When I began writing Memoirs: The Soulful Recollection, I thought–lets write a non fiction prose of a memoir. However, being a poet at heart which I discovered way back during my childhood years, I was not at all surprised when my thoughts turned into a flow of words which composed a variety of poems in my wordpad.

To me, friendship, nature, travel to new lands , and spending some time in solitude are precious. I wrote such poems based on my real life experiences in friendship, and my continuous quest for self discovery. I feel blessed with all the bitter-sweet moments and memories my life has bestowed me, as they have helped me to open up and write that, which was in my heart for a long time.

I love to travel and admire nature in all her beauty and splendor , hence nature played a  very important role in inspiring me to write about her in my different poetic moods.

The poems are long and short, sometimes rhymed and unrhymed, but are lucid I believe, as I feel every person is a poet at heart ; and if he or she sets her heart to read or write a poem, it can be done. Poetry is beauty and an enigma in itself with its tender and ornamental touch which weaves words of the heart and the mind together to form a creative composition.

Poetry is my inspiration along with nature to look at life in its various shades – happy, sad, soulful, mournful, joyous and rebellious. Have a good read!

Ebook reviewed by Lori M for Readers Favorite : “Poet Payal Roy explains in the preface that poetry has been a major focus in her life since junior high when she was required to create a poem as a class assignment. Inspired by the emotion of writing as well as nature photography, she includes some of her pictures (as well as those taken by her husband) in the book as well.

In her piece titled “A Child in You,” she encourages the reader to quit being so bored/boring and to remember that you only live once and should enjoy every moment of it. The poem invites you to remember all of the simple joys of your childhood running on green lawns and seeing the magic in nature.

Many of the poems include elements of nature such as sky, grass, flowers, and trees and most of them talk about life being precious and to have hope and enjoy the beautiful world by appreciating it each and every day. Among the inspiring photos are images of the sunset over Lotus Temple in India, a beach in France, the countryside in Prague, a mountain in Spain, clouds in Poland and flowers in the Netherlands.

In “Light,” Roy contemplates light being a flicker of hope, a true spirit, a lack of ignorance, or a thirst for knowledge. In this collection of more than 40 poems, you’ll find pieces titled, “Reach Out,” “Colours,” “Saga of Life,” “A Never Ending Hope,” and “In a Nutshell” among many others.”

Summary of Memoirs: The Soulful Recollection

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

This ebook is a collection of contemporary poems in the genre of fiction/fantasy and memoirs. A rich collection of original travel photographs have been included in the ebook which give an added essence to the underlying expressions portrayed in each of the poems.  The photographs have been taken from our travels to various locations of Europe.

The collection of poems is also  dedicated to the delights and the invaluable worth of having true friends, celebrating the essence of true friendship in all its splendour, and loving life as it is , how it is.

This book delves on the subjects of nature and her miracles as well, and about love and travels to lands of fantasy, when our minds are tired of the daily monotony of deadlines, and work pressures. It attempts to project life in its vibrant enigmatic variations and tries to have a closer look at the simplicities and intricacies of friendship created with many people, some of whom turn from strangers to true friends as life moves on.
