About

Hi guys, I’m Samita Sarkar, host of Blossoms Books, freelance writer/editor, and fruit salad addict. I started this website to encourage upcoming authors and wannabe writers.

Me with my favourite fruit.

Just like you, I’ve always wanted to write a book.

I’ve written several bad drafts (which I’m taking to the grave). I studied writing at York University, took publishing courses, and graduated cum laude. I interned and freelanced for publishers.

Yet even after all that, when I began my journey to authorship, nothing prepared me for what I encountered.

I navigated my way through the processes, paperwork, and out-and-out scams to successfully publish my travel memoir under my own publishing imprint, Blossoms Books. Then, I began this blog to hopefully inspire you to do the same. This blog is all about positivity, and I love to help other authors by reviewing your books and doing featured interviews.

When my nose isn’t stuck in a new novel, I enjoy being outdoors and blogging/working on my vegetarian baking/animal rights books — which I’m giving out for free to my lovely subscribers by the way!

By the way, if you’ve written a manuscript or are thinking about publishing your own book, check out my free guide, Savvy Self-Publishing, which includes tips for authors on sprucing up their manuscript, impressing agents, and even analyzing publishing contracts.
