KNOW THIS IN YOUR HEART (copyright2013@Payal Roy)

Rippling tides, emotions astride

Struggling might, a thirst

To rise high, to stand

Tall above all, high

In the sky with wonder

In the eyes.  Move on,

Never quit, but carry dreams

In your stride. Realizations of

Those passions, toil away the

Tedious hours of the day, never

Bow, never woe ’cause of cynics,

Never cower to criticisms from

Unhappy folks whose lives are

Dark with desires unfulfilled.

Believe in the dreams, believe

In the might, know this that

Your way is always right, ’cause

Its you who would choose in

The end, how you’d like to lead

Your life. Keep running, keep

Climbing steadily with might,

Even if you fall, do stand tall,

And the world would seem

Like a golf ball, smaller as you

Rise high and grow.

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.

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.

“Beautiful and captivating poetry. Written from the heart.
A joy to read. Look forward to more poetry.”

star star star star star
“As the name of the E-book suggests the poems/poetry has been very soulfully depicted in each of the poems written by Payal Roy. She has been extremely thoughtful and sincere in her application of vocabulary to express her creative thoughts. This is a wonderful rendition!
Looking forward to see many more of them(poems, prose) coming! ”

star star star star star
“Wonderfully written poems..Each poem has its own character…I just loved reading those beautifully expressed poetry.. It is a great piece of poetry !!
Looking forward to read more poems by Payal Roy….”
“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.”

Author websiter at eblogger-calling all indie writers to list their books

Hello friends, I hope you all are doing great! I have redecorated my blog at eblogger, and now its ready to roll! What does my blog at eblogger aim to do? Please share this post with your fellow author and reader friends. The reason is mentioned below.

I invite my fellow indie author friends, poets and writers to visit my blogsite–why? I am an indie author myself, and I know how important it is to showcase your work and try to reach as many interesting readers as you can through any social medium. That’s why I have come up with my alternate eblogger site.

I look forward to post, showcase and highlight any good ebook written by you, dear indie writers to showcase your valubale work in front of readers or visitors visiting my eblogger site, I however will not endorse erotica, graphic novel or any other ebook that has controversy in it , is controversial or acts as a hate message to any culture or race of people. Apart from that, ebooks from all genres are wlecomed to be highlighted in my eblogger site.This is a free service for now!

If you are interested to showcase your work in my blogsite here is what you need to do:

i. Submit the name of your ebook, genre , any digital or print ISBN, link to the bookstore where your book is available in digital and print formats, any reviews and ratings , link to your author profile and a synopsis of your ebook to my email id : smarsh173@gmail.com. I will acknowledge your email, if I receive these ebook details from you. The subject line should be : Submission of ebook listing details at wonderworld-variety

ii. Once I receive your ebook details , please allow me 24-48 hours to write-up a new post to showcase and highlight your ebooks in my eblogger page.The post would start off as :

“Message from author/poet XYZ about his ebook XYZ”

iii. This service is totally free of charge, I just want to support and assist my fellow indie author friends in our ongoing journey to write and provide entertainment to our dear readers.

So, if you like my idea, then lets work together to highlight our works in front of the growing sea of readers out there, and give them a good read through our books!


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!
