Ordering “Lucky For Some, 13” and “It Can’t Be You”

I met some old friends recently and we were chatting about my books, my debut novel, “It Can’t Be You” and my second thriller, “Lucky For Some, 13.” They wanted to know where the books would be available online, which is where many people seem to do their shopping these days. This spurred me to update information on where my books can be ordered. Continue reading “Ordering “Lucky For Some, 13” and “It Can’t Be You””

With A Little Help From My Friends

Do you remember that old Beatles song, “With A Little Help From My Friends” which came out way back in ’67? I liked this song a lot and later another version of it by Joe Cocker who sang it in Woodstock in ’69. You may wonder what this has to do with writing or books, and I don’t blame you! Coming to the point, have you ever asked yourself how you can help your author friends? If you wish to, that is.

Now Available on Amazon.in

I write of the book buying experience in India, though the principles are the same the world over. In the old days, if you wanted to buy a book, you had to drive down to the shopping area to get one from a bookstore.  You sort of pottered around, read a little, browsed through a few books and came away with whatever books you chose to buy. It was an enjoyable experience but it took a lot of time.

With time becoming at a premium, things changed with the advent of the online portals like Flipkart and the like. They offered many advantages. You didn’t have to go hunting for a book, not sure whether the bookstore has it in stock or not. You ordered it online and it reached you in reasonable time at reasonable cost. You can pre-order books too so that you get them much earlier than most. I have an article on this in my writing blog, Writing To Be Read.

Now comes news that the biggest online player of them all, Amazon.com has begun servicing retailers in India through Amazon.in.

I am pleased to see that ” Lucky For Some, 13″ can now also be ordered through Amazon.in.

Ordering My Books

I am not really sure which of the bookstores have my books in stock. Many have them, some don’t. It’s very difficult to keep track. However, it is far easier for an author to provide links to on-line portals where the time to deliver is clearly stated. So, here goes as I try to put together all the links I came across, which you can use to order my books. Terms and conditions as also the prices do vary, but this may be useful to readers:- Continue reading “Ordering My Books”

Reader’s comment on “Lucky For Some, 13”

It’s comments like these from readers that make your day as an author. Here is what Subhash Nayak wrote on the FB Page for “Prem Rao, Storyteller.”:-
Thoroughly enjoyed “Lucky For Some, 13″ from start to finish! The vivid descriptions of each of the characters; the buildup of how certain events and people in one’s life could convert an ordinary person into a terrorist; the plot set up in Bangalore with the familiar streets and landmarks; the brutality with which the hostage situation plays out; and the nail biting operation to flush out the terrorists – all make for a very interesting thriller that quite literally is unputdownable! The epilogue is the icing on the cake as the author subtly observes that some things could, but would, never change. Look forward to the next novel :-)”

“Lucky For Some, 13” can be ordered from Amegabooks, HomeShop 18 or Flipkart amongst many on-line portals.
