A big thank you to the organizers of the festival and Maryland pavilion organizers for this honor. I really appreciate this gesture.

Twitter Party of The Modern Mughal Mentality was a great hit!

Hello Everyone,

These days it is very hard to promote one's book on a budget. But I never give-up on any project and goal I want to accomplish; that's  my style. I look up for creative ideas to be successful or in other words one can call it Jugaad  the strategy mentioned in the book :The Modern Mughal Mentality. I am doing twitter chat for long time on Twubs and here is my link to Twubs for The Modern Mughal Mentality:

I will be talking about my book through hashtag #The Modern Mughal Mentality every Friday from 3-4 pm Eastern time so come and join me to learn about this wonderful Amazon Best-selling Book.

But for my Twitter Party  for The Modern Mughal Mentality  although I registered the #The Modern MughaI Mentality wanted to contract out to a company. Didnot know about any company which does this kind of work and so turned to google to do some research. Got some companies and so started writing to them. The rates I was quoted was not in any particular range. One company quoted me whooping $20,000 for an hour of Twitter party! Ridiculous as it sounds but this is the reality of people taking advantage of people. I am writing this blog post to particularly help people who are looking to do Twitter parties and are not ripped off.

After lot of research ,I got this wonderful company Sweepstakes Diva (, athough I didnot know them but the price they quoted me was within my range and very reasonable which a person on a budget like me could afford. So I immediately hired them to host twitter party for me. Today  Aug 20,2015, was my Twitter party and I had a wonderful experience.  Bethany Stout the owner of Sweepstakes Diva, was very professional from the beginning, she explained me the process in detail and they can also register your hashtag  if you donot already have one.  There was lot of excitement, positive energy and buzz about my book. There were many people logged in, from around the globe. I had some exciting prizes 5 Amazon $10 cards and a bangle set and box which are both Mughal inspired!. Everybody present was on the agenda of talking about my book and praised me for writing this wonderful book. Many were asking when my next book is coming and they cannot wait to read that one too as they liked this one a lot!

I would highly recommend Sweepstakes Diva company for your Twitter party events. I will again hire them if I need Twitter or Facebook parties in the future.

Sweepstakes Diva is awesome and I thank them for hosting a wonderful and very useful Twitter party for me.

With all the best wishes from your loving author
