      1. Yes I am a writer too. I have recently published a children’s book on Smashwords last year(The Missing Laddoos). That is my first book so having said that, I have so much more to learn so it was definitely great to have dropped by. I didn’t have any marketing plans made so right now I’m at the starting stage of marketing the book.
