“Blogging is not just to express ourselves or to share some information, it also brings in some wonderful humans into our life. Namita Ma’am is such a wise person, whom I got to know via blogging. On a good day, we were introduced via a comment, gradually she become a well-wisher, whom I regard as a mentor.
She was one of the early supporters of Blank Space initiative. All she considered was “why we aim to publish such a book!” She believed in the purpose behind Blank Space to instill positivity in the minds of youth, which can make our society a better place.
For Alice like us, in the wonderland of publishing, it is the trust from a few people like her, which helps us to keep going.”
“Morning Puppies” is like a ray of hope of kindness in this fast moving world. The sunlight can’t be stopped by the hindering clouds, so as the little kids, we can’t stop them from being kind. This misty dawn story will surely touch your heart as soft as a puppy’s fur.”

Unveiling The Ghost Editor 🙂 Preethi started supporting us as an Editor, along with Barun, however, she had begun in incognito mode. Now we wish to surprise her friends and everyone by unveiling that she was the one who had fine tuned their stories to perfection as an editor. She puts herself on the shoes of the readers as well as the writers, while editing the stories and that’s the secret of her work, which got her appreciations from many contributing authors of Blank Space.
Her Story for Blank Space : Eternal Love
She has also penned a story for Blank Space, “Eternal Love”- a Beautiful and an Inspiring love story, which talks about values like understanding, trust and faith, one should have in any successful relationship. This is especially for teens in our society who get confused about love and what true love is all about. The poetic love story speaks about how love travels beyond the perception of human awareness. Many of us call Love “Eternal” But why? Preethi’s story has the answers…
