Book review: BoyzNite


Title: BoyzNite
Author: Xane J Fisher
Release Date: August 1 ,2016

Not much romance,  yet a lot of memories.

This book is the debut work of author Xane J Fisher. A party ending up with lots of happenings in a single night,  making it a BoyzNite.
The book has more to it,  author Xane tries to put up some family emotions,  where the protagonist Ian’s family is closely knit except his mother.

The story opens up with Ian Peters moving to Piedmont,  Washington for the summer,  to his father’s place. This summer proves to be self -revealing  for him,  reassuring himself regarding his conscience,  reigniting old flame,  reconnecting with his family and friends.

It is the story of most of us who passed their college or are attending universities or working somewhere far from their family,  far from the place they grew up,  exceptional are a few adventures made by Ian.

There is a particular period in our life ‘s timeline when we come to know what we missed all around,  the mistakes we carried and finally we want to correct those. That is what Xane J Fisher’s book is about and much more. Which I won’t reveal,  not now.

A book which is sure to remind the adults of their past adventures,  the young adults of their latest thrills.
So if you are COMPLETELY,  TOTALLY interested grab your copies from Amazon pre -sale.

Interview with Manya V Kasi

Hello everyone today we have Manya V Kasi , the author of India’s most unlikely bride. I am really honored to have her interview. Without fussing much about my blog let me proceed with her answers.

1. Where are you from?

I have been living in San Francisco from the past 12 years, but I am originally from Hyderabad, India.

2. When did you start writing?

I have been writing since I was a little girl.  However, I have publishedmy book on Amazon for the first time only a few months ago.

3. What is your debut novel?

My debut novel is named “India’s Most Unlikely Bride”

4. What inspired you to write the plot?

Topics like verbal abuse within marriage or male child preference in a family are not discussed that openly. We know they exist, we even see them happening around us, sometimes from too close for comfort.  But we often look the other way, since they do not usually leave behind any physical pain or scars on the victim.I wanted to write a story about a woman who has gone through those issues.I had obsessively researched various articles on these topics.  My phone is filled with notes and bookmarks on consequences of verbal abuse and howvictims usually cope. Some of the statistics around the world were unbelievable. It also gave me a new found understanding towards victims who have stayed through years of abusive marriage.Soon I drafted a story to address some of the social issues without being too obtrusive to the core romance storyline.

5. Other than writing what is your profession?
I work in the Information Technology sector.

6. Name your favorite writers and books .

I am an avid reader who has several favorite writers and books in various genres. 🙂 The ones I can name on top of my head are: Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell ;Outlander by Diana Gabaldon;The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins;Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead ;Can You Keep A Secret by Sophie Kinsella

7. Which is your favorite vacation spot?

I don’t have a favorite. I love vacationing atany place that helps me relax wth an enjoyable company. 🙂

8.  What do you think writers should keep in mind before sketching out acharacter?

Characters should drive the story. Writers should know their characters pretty well. They could be based a little bit on someone they know or sometimes they could also be based a little bit on the writers itself. That would help in knowing the characters motivations, what drives them and howthey would react to certain circumstances.It is very important to have empathy towards all the characters in the story.

9. Tell us about your future projects.

I’m currently working on a new adult novel.

10. Any suggestions for newbie authors.

Don’t give up on writing or be discouraged by bad reviews. Continue writing with the same passion. Nothing or no one can stop you from doing what you love to do the best.

Thanks for joining us today in this interview and I also wish Manya a bright future with her writing works.



They floated down near me,
With your name on one –
I picked up the next,
Nothing but a white petal lay on it.
Finally you wanted peace with me
When the whole town lay unsound; Everything messed under water
How ironical was that!

Interview with Ravi Bedi

Tonight I am honored to introduce the author of Perfect Imperfect to all of you – Mr. Ravi Bedi. I have not known him for long but whatever least time I came into his acquaintance,  a motion of pride filled my mind because he is one of those soldiers who fought for our country when the nation was facing a crisis time.  Even in his answers you’ll find that.


1. Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Jodhpur as a young boy, did my engineering at BHU in 1962 as a young lad, and turned into a ‘man’ during two weeks of excruciating ragging at an Air Force training centre.

2. When did you start writing?

Long after I retired in 1989—when my basement started filling up with a lot of crap (read paintings). But I did have a plot in my mind for many years,which finally took shape in 2014, when Rupa decided to publish my firstbook.

3. Please tell us something about your life as a pilot.

I never flew a plane. I helped in keeping those flying machines fighting fit. If you wish to know more about the lives of fighterpilots, read“Lovers’ Rock”. You won’t regret it.

4. What do you enjoy more painting or writing?

Writing; but I’m tempted to go back to painting. Paintings don’t take as much time as writing. Both are fulfilling—and a lot
better than switching channels on the idiot box!

5. Since you were a pilot I am sure you must have visited places thatcommon folks like us haven’t, so do you ever plan to work on that and writea Book on lives of pilots in IAF?

I worked very closely with fighter pilots, carried my beddings and crockery all over the country from west to east, and south to north. I made a lot of lasting friends, and then some who didn’t last. You’ll have glimpses of pilots’ lives in my book. If I write a book devoted to their exploits, it might be banned! (I can’t afford to forgo my pension!). I enjoyed my tenure at Hasimara (during the 71 war) in the east the most.

6. Do you think the Indian readers are more inclined towards romance genre  books?

It would annoy a lot of people if I give an honest opinion. You’ll find your answer in the sales figures on amazon or elsewhere. (Crap sells in good numbers!).

7. Could you please site the name of websites where your books are available?

Amazon, Flipkart, Rupa Publications, Authorink Publications.

8. What are your favourite books?

Lots of them, but mainly crime/romantic thrillers.

9. Do you write every day or randomly?

I used to write every day, but now only randomly. Currently I’m editing my forthcoming books…perhaps for the nth time, and still leaving a few holes.

10. What do you think makes a good plot?

Plot is the main thing, the very soul of a tale, often neglected by accomplished writers of repute. It has to be original, unique, and believable with a good measure of interesting twists and turns. It should not only surprise, but entertain. The rest depends on how it is presented.You can ruin a good plot by shabby writing. However, poorly crafted plots do sell in large numbers, especially if the book cover has a famous name.
Thank you for your time-Ravi Bedi.

We thank you as well sir.

The Wizard’s love #1

If you haven’t read the prologue yet,  then here is a link to that.



Wizardly Willow had seen its share of catastrophes , but during the past few centuries after the previous Primus stepped down and his son took over,  the wreckage caused by the latter has been unlike anything else. Houses burnt down,  children kidnapped,  the men and women killed as a result the old ones were slowly consumed by death,  with no one to tend to their care.
Standing in the field near the Western Gate,  where he usually practised magic using his wand  he kept on staring at the red and orange glow in the sky,  which meant there would be good news for them in the near future. Which means he must have found her. He then focus his energy into giving this message to the elders. They must have seen the prediction too yet as their Primus it was his duty to let everyone know.
Now that he passed on the information , next he could focus on creating the spell he wanted to for a long time, for this he couldn’t use his wand. Wizards were most powerful with their wands,  care handed magic was only meant for the Primus. He placed his  wand back on the groove  in his trousers, placed his left hand on his chest and his right hand was raised parallel to the ground,  spreading all his fingers,  he began muttering the spell he heard two centuries back from his father. The withered leaves slowly began drifting,  dust and soil lifted off the ground and gradually started taking the shape of a cyclone.
Just then he heard a shriek behind him,  and with his focus lost things turned back to normal again. His gray eyes turned red with anger. “Why are you here now? ” he hissed coldly.

Book review: India’s Most Unlikely Bride


Title:India’s Most Unlikely Bride
Author: M.V.Kasi
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Ratings:  5 star

A match made in hell

India’s most unlikely bride is the first romantic comedy by an Indian author,  that was able to keep me enthralled. Right from the beginning the light bantering between the lead characters Mahi and Samrat bound me to my seat for a full two hours which is seldom in case of other books.

Set in Southern India the book provides us an outlook of the Southern people,  their tastes,  climate etc. Mahi is thirty something,  a person with a sharp tongue and strong wits. She is a divorcee with a wild past. Back in Hyderabad from San Francisco,  she’s here to redeem herself. But will her obsolete past help her do that? 
Samrat a business tycoon,  who is Mahi’s neighbor as well , had a difficult time during college;  all thanks to Mahi. Will he allow her to live peacefully,  when she arrives next door after 14 years.

The story has everything a person needs while sipping a cup of coffee from romance -passion -emotional drama -sarcasm -comedy,  just everything.  Mahi’s witty nature even when she’s grieving and Samrat’s dominating,  stubborn self strike perfectly.

If you guys are interested in Super hot romance then I assure you,  won’t be disappointed with this book.

Happy Birthday to me


I am literally announcing my birthday and all of you are invited to wish me (just kidding ). Twenty one years of struggle on this planet , to make my life better.  Now I wouldn’t be saying that I don’t for others,  but hell in this busy lifestyle its quite difficult to start caring for everyone around me.  I do care for my dad,  aunt and all other living relatives ( sacrificing for ancestors is a complete no-no for me ), my friends.  I am no philanthropist that I have to start sharing with my nosy neighbours who spend half of their time,  criticizing me ( of course that’s back biting) as if I wouldn’t know,  but again I don’t care.  Well if spending time with my pets and feeding the pariah cats and dogs count to some good charity,  then I obviously wouldn’t let that compliment out of my league.
Happy Blogging Everyone. And a BIG. promise to not let down your desires to read more and more of my writing.
