'Cathick's Unfairy Tales' ~ Cover Reveal

CARTHICK'S UNFAIRY TALES BY Carthick
Blurb

A damsel in distress. An evil dragon. A concerned father seeking a savior to rescue his daughter. A hero galloping off to the rescue – a knight in shining armor. Now THAT is stuff of fairy tales.
But what if the father’s real concern is for the dragon’s hoard; What if the damsel’s reason of distress is the marriage proposal by her pompous and vicious savior; and what if the story is told by the horse who bears not only the overweight knight but also his heavy, shining armor all the way to the dragon’s lair and back, facing certain death in the process?

What if there was more – much more – to all your favourite fairy tales than met the eye?

This book chronicles not one but seven such unfairy tales – tales told by undead horsemen and living cities. Tales of mistreated hobgoblins and misunderstood magicians. Tales of disagreeable frogs and distressed rats and bears baring their souls. Once you read these stories, you will never be able to look at a…

'Doctor Stalker Spy' by Usha Narayanan ~ Review

DOCTOR STALKER SPY
by
Usha Narayanan


BLURB Kamna is a psychiatrist in Chennai. Her colleague Purush is rich, handsome and madly in love with her. When a dashing stranger, Neel, enters her life, she is drawn to him like a magnet. But then , an intruder crashes into her home and threatens her life. Can Kamna find love amid such danger?
MY REVIEW
Honestly, this book goes on to prove that genre-fixation is hugely overrated. 

Having read a couple of mythological books from her, I found it hard to believe that Ms Narayanan would ever write a Y.A. rom-com. Well, she did, and how well at that !?  Doctor, Stalker, Spy is one of the best and seemingly real romances I've read in a long while. The author has studied her subjects to a deep extent, which is evident in all her character portrayals. The dilemmas and challenges a 20-something faces, all seem so real and relatable. 
This one is undoubtedly, yet another master stroke by Ms. Narayanan!!

'Prem Purana' by Usha Narayanan ~ BookBlitz

Print Length: 272 pages Publisher: Penguin Random House India  Publication Date: September 18, 2017 Language: English Genre: Romance 


No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained.

Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana.

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR

'Fragments' by Janaki Nagaraj ~ Book Blitz

Print Length: 76 pages Publication Date: July 31, 2017 Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Available on Kindle Unlimited  Genre: Fiction, Anthology 


“I often painted fragments of things because it seemed to make my statement as well as or better than the whole could” - Georgia O'Keeffe.

A serial killer on the loose who chooses a particular day of the month to kill his victims; a strained father-son relationship, when the father returns home after being presumed dead; a girl who can go to any extent for her career and money; a woman openly acknowledging the presence of the many ‘other women’ in her life; a lady's dark past finally catches up with her... Life is an ongoing sequence of events meshed with everyday mundaneness so that it becomes difficult to isolate them.

‘Fragments’ captures the essence of those parts of our lives that we are not proud to show to others. It takes you through a range of emotions and leaves a big question mark on what is supposed…
