Social media is fast enveloping our lives and there’s no getting away from it. Both professionally and personally, use of social media is sky rocketing by the day as more people jump into the fray to derive the benefits of a revolution whose time has come. Older people, both in business and in their own capacities, who were more skeptical a few years ago, now recognize that social media can give them benefits they had not imagined they would get earlier. Likewise, professionals and men and women in business see social media as a huge opportunity to communicate their brand and develop their business.

Recently, Leena Chanda asked me for an interview for her blog. My answers to her questions throw some light on what has fashioned me and my writing. Yes, I guess it’s better late than never. Read the full interview here.

I have read hundreds of books about the Second World War but “No End Save Victory: Perspectives of World War II” edited by Robert Cowley must rank as being one of the best. I had looked at this book several times and kept it back in its assigned shelf in the library I use, daunted by its size, (688 pages), but some weeks ago I decided to give it another shot, and am so glad I did so.
Here are some more ways you can order my second thriller, ‘Lucky For Some, 13″ online. This is a story of terror strikes in India In 2010 , first in that lovely holiday destination of Goa and later in that bustling Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore.
- Catskart: delivers to you anywhere in India. Feels good to see that “LFS13” features prominently in the “Suspense and Thrillers ” list with books by great names like: Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham, Dan Brown, etc. I consider this an honour.
- ShopClues.com: at a ridiculously low discounted price:)

The objective of most writers is to have their stories published. This process is, as you will find out if you haven’t done so already, is a long one and is by no means as easy as it sounds. Today, I share a few articles that caught my attention on this topic from Mike Wells, in his website/blog Mike Wells Books/The Green Water Blog. Continue reading “Tips for Writers from Mike Wells”
I was reflecting the other day on how I have evolved as a writer over the last few years that I have been deeply involved in writing. When I wrote “It Can’t Be You” my debut novel, I had no idea how it would all end but I vastly enjoyed an incredible new experience of writing a story and getting a book published.
On reflection, a few thoughts about the writing of “It Can’t Be You.”
Have you as a writer felt dissatisfied with the quality of your output? Have you experienced a sense of inadequacy when your writing did not turn to be as great as you would have liked it to be? The chances are that your writing fell flat because you did excessive “telling” and very little “showing.” Continue reading ““Show or Tell?” : James Thayer”
