About the author







Jyoti Arora is an Indian novelist and blogger. Besides her books, her writing achievements include several wins in blogging competitions, over five years of freelance writing experience, developing books for kids and abridging 30 English novels like Jane Eyre, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, etc. 


Jyoti’s first novel ‘Dream’s Sake’ was published by V&S Publishers in 2011. It tells a beautiful love story revolving around the troubles of physically challenged people. Her second novel ‘Lemon Girl’ is based on the theme of gender crime against women and victim-blaming. It is featured in Ezvid’s wiki list of 9 Well-Written Novels That Put Women Front & Center. It also received appreciation from Ms. Maneka Gandhi. Her third novel ‘You Came Like Hope’ talks about the opposite side of the issue discussed in Lemon Girl. That is, it talks about the fake cases filed by women. This too is a case of gender crime and victim-blaming. But in this case, it is the man who suffers. The book received much appreciation for its unique theme and heart-warming love story. All three books are intense and based on serious social issues. For her fourth book, Jyoti decided to write something lighter and happier. That’s what has resulted in #JustRomance, a collection of happy love stories. 


Books have always been Jyoti’s best friends. In fact, books so fascinated her from early childhood that she learnt to read by herself even before she started going to school. And she considers herself fortunate that she is able to pursue her dream of being a novelist and work at what she loves best.


However, if books are her first love, the thrilling and steadily advancing world of technology also fascinates her. As a result, one of her blogs is a technological blog called TechnoTreats. One of her posts in this blog even won her the title of Samsung Mobiler in 2011. After that, she has won several other blogging competitions too.


She is a patient of Thalassemia which forced her to drop out of school too soon. But she did not let that defeat her. She studied on her own and completed her schooling through correspondence courses. Then she went on to Jyoti study BA English (Honours) from Delhi University and then achieved postgraduation degrees in English Literature and Applied Psychology from Annamalai University.


For her determination and achievements, she has received appreciation from several eminent dignitaries and her life story has been covered in various TV shows, radio programs, newspapers, magazines, and websites. In the year 2016, she was one of the 100 special women achievers of India that were invited as special guests to attend the Republic Day parade in Delhi.

Book Review: THE RED MASK BY D R DOWNER

The Red Mask by D R Downer is written in his signature style. Short and to the point.

Coming to the story first, it's about a young man, Ranjit, driving in the dark. He had to suddenly stop his car, thinking someone had stepped in front of it. The readers are told that it was not the case, which makes me breathe again.

He still gets out of the car and meets the sweet and innocent child Shanno. Shanno leaves a lasting impression on him, and even as he returns to his daily life, he can't stop thinking of that child.
Life takes a twist, and all I can tell right now is that that ending will shock you.

For a short story, this book is well written. It took me about five minutes to finish this book. As with every short story that I read, I feel that that author could have done so much more with this story. For, eg. I never got to meet Jennifer. I could not even understand why Ranjit's background was given so much importance, which had no impact on his present. But his personal life in the present situation was washed over.

The language of the author is very gripping, and he has kept the emotions under a tight reign. Perfect for the short story. The ending was the golden crown of the story, and I am sure many readers will not be able to reach a conclusion due to the twisted turns [or should I say false alarms?] the author has taken to reach there.

One thing I would like to say is that this is not a thriller or a suspense novel. It's what we call a slice of life or a drama fiction. There was no instance where I asked who was she or where did she go? But yes, questions about Ranjit's present life and the people connected with him. I wanted to know what his relationship with Jennifer was. If she was a wife or lover? Who is Srini, the name that beeps when he is with Kamini?

Many unanswered questions and many instances mentioned, which either should have been taken further or not mentioned at all. On this public platform, I would sincerely request D. R Downer to write his full length of a novel and not leave his readers closing his books with so many unanswered questions. As a fan of his books, I will return every time so I can demand more. Can't I?

Book Review: More Unfairy Tales by T. F Carthick


Today I have on my blog 'More Unfairy Tales' by T. F Carthick. But before that, let me request you to subscribe to my newsletter to keep updated with the latest book news and my upcoming books.

Follow me on Instagram to keep check out all the new upcoming posts and Giveaways shortly.

Coming to my recent read, More Unfairy Tales, I think Carthick has coined a new word - Unfairy. Well, whether it will be added to the Oxford dictionary or not, only time will tell. For now, he has brought out characters to the forefront, who are either the antagonists or the side characters.

If On a Winter's night: 
The POV is of the dwarves. Those cute little things we tend to ignore in our narration of Snow White. Carthik has brought their irritation, their love, and their protective nature for Snow in his unique style.

Lost love's labors:
One of the best in this series as the feelings of the witch is taken into consideration. Why she turned the young prince into a beast has some exciting twists. The ending for a romance lover like me, was disappointing, especially after all the tribulations mentioned.

The Jungle Tale:
Again a unique perspective, though complicated. A tinge of sadness too. A little girl, unloved, is sent out to the woods to meet her grandmother.  A wolf follows her journey, but he is not the main villain in the story. How the huntsman comes and helps out, and why does he help out, forms the base of the story.

Daughters and Lovers
The story of Rapunzel. The most positive story in the lot where I liked the ending. Especially after reading the rest, I loved the fighting spirit of the girl. Here a special mention must be made on the character sketch of the witch. Carthik gave her a heart - which seems to be missing even in the original take.

Shoes and Man is a portrayal of human greed, which is never-ending and unrealistic. Societal norms of having more than others are often a measurement of our happiness. Even the elves are left bewildered at the demands of the humans.

Coming to the character portrayal, I have to say that the author loves to experiment. Even in his first book, Unfairy tales, he had brought out many shades of the characters. While the first book is perfect for children and adults, I am a bit concerned about the way this book is written. Satire at its best, but a tinge of cynicism can't be overlooked.

Every character is well defined. All the stories run smoothly except The Jungle Tale. While stories like Daughters and Lovers and Lost love's Labour took me to another world,  The Jungle Tale confused me. It was after putting away the book did I realize that there were a few missing dots. I couldn't connect the two wolves. On the other hand, when I met the witches in Lost Love's Labour and Daughters and Lover, I could relate to the witches. Tells a lot about me. :D

What makes Carthick apart from other writers is his ability to twist things, the foundation of which was laid a long time ago. You need to keep your focus on the stories, or you will never know where the twist is coming from. Great language with a considerable dose of imagination - Carthik I hope is on his way to write Many More Unfairy Tales.

Book Review: The Magician by Sonia Rao

Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover...

The woman, on the cover of The Magician by Sonia Rao, called out to me from the day I saw it for the first time. With her proud aristocratic nose and her hands claiming to embrace the fantasy world had so many facets that one can't but question what the book is all about. 

What's her role in the story? Is she the protagonist?  There were so many questions that burned in my mind. The first thought was maybe it's a supernatural one. A woman controlling the lives of many? 

While the supernatural part was far from it, but my last point proved to be correct. A woman controlling the lives of others. The Magician in the deck of Tarot, controlling the lives of three women who are connected through friendship.

The Story of Stong Women...

The story is about these women. Sasha, Nilima, and Shanta. Sasha is an elite housewife bound to her husband by an arranged marriage. She has dedicated all her life to her family until she does not see another woman hanging onto her husband's arm at their anniversary party. To top it all, the card of Death settles on her fate that night. Who that other woman is and how the Card of Death is related in their lives is for you to find out by reading this book. 

Coming to the second character, Nilima, one finds a woman next door, totally in love with her husband. A perfect marriage, an ideal career, everything a girl can dream of. But then dreams are made to be broken. How that happens forms the soul of this book. 

Shanta is my favorite of all the three protagonists. A tarot card reader with a heart full of love. She finds love in the most unusual places. Every time the question that pops out is if he is the one. When she meets Danny, the bartender, the question finds its answer. Or does it?

Identifying with the Characters...

The Magician does not follow a straight path where the protagonists reach from point A to point B. Sonia Rao had layered them with emotions that seem to pile up as the story progresses. Shades of Grey, not the fifty shades kind, but where the good against bad merges into a thin line, can be found in many instances. I had to question myself many times - what would I have done in this situation?

If I have to find the 'base' of the story, I could say that the Tarot, though forms the background of the story,  does not take over the story as I had initially suspected. A clean-cut women fiction where the lives of the three women are analyzed, broken, and mended to such an extent that as a woman, I am forced to identify myself with one of them. Which one? I am so not telling. But if you tell me which one is you, I might tell you mine. :D 

Naughty Sonia Rao...

Sonia Rao has been naughty in a few scenes too, But being her debut novel, I could sense, as a reader, that she is holding back. The scene between Nilima and her husband was a clear indication of the author changing her mind suddenly. 

But then again, this book does not claim to be an out and out romance. It's more about the journey of a woman in different phases of life. Ms. Rao has done an excellent job of catching the insecurities in a marriage, extramarital affairs, and yet kept the innocence of love alive throughout the novel. 

Bring them on...

I am looking forward to reading more from this author. Whether she sticks to dramas or jumps into the bandwagon of romance, readers will be able to find out in her next novel, which, if the grapevine is right, is coming out soon.

Book Blitz: More Unfairy Tales by T. F Carthick



MORE UNFAIRY TALES
(Carthick's Unfairy Tales Book 2)
by
T.F. Carthick



Blurb

A knight rescues a damsel in distress. They marry, the whole kingdom rejoices, and everyone lives happily ever after. The end.

Or at least that's what Official sources say. But what tales do insiders tell? What secrets lie buried deep inside Davey Jones' Locker?

What, dear reader, about The Unfairy tales?

The stories the Knight-in-Shining-Armour and the Damsel-in-Distress have never wanted you to know. Tales which Fairyland had kept locked up in secret and thrown away the key. Until our rogue bard went back in time and ferreted out skeletons hidden within secret cupboards of desolate mansions.

Our fearless crusader of truth and justice brings to you the second volume of revelations from fairyland.

You will find five more unfairy tales hidden within the pages of this tiny tome, the sequel to Carthick's Unfairy Tales. Stories of elves out to decipher the ways of men and dwarves seeking to reclaim their own histories. Of spurned witches and lost wolves. These stories are going to change everything you have ever believed about fairyland and give you a peek underneath the gossamer threads of glamour and magic peddled by the Fae.

Cover Reveal: You Beneath Your Skin by Damyanti Biswas

You Beneath Your Skin Cover reveal


Today I have the pleasure of having Damyanti Biswas on my blog. Damyanti has a unique way of reaching out to your heart. Whether you are a stranger to her or a friend. So you can imagine how much power she has with words. If you have ever read her blog, you will definitely fall in love with her book. So with great pleasure, let me reveal the cover for Damyanti Biswas's debut crime novel, You Beneath Your Skin to be published this September by Simon & Schuster, India. 

So, without further ado, here's the cover! The red and black immediately captures nuances of an atmospheric crime story, and the face visible under the title makes you wonder who she is, and what her story might be. 


You Beneath Your Skin

Lies. Ambition. Family.


It’s a dark, smog-choked New Delhi winter. Indian American single mother Anjali Morgan juggles her job as a psychiatrist with caring for her autistic teenage son. She is in a long-standing affair with ambitious Police Commissioner Jatin Bhatt – an irresistible attraction that could destroy both their lives.

Jatin’s home life is falling apart: his handsome and charming son is not all he appears to be, and his wife has too much on her plate to pay attention to either husband or son. But Jatin refuses to listen to anyone, not even the sister to whom he is deeply attached.

Across the city there is a crime spree: slum women found stuffed in trash bags, faces and bodies disfigured by acid. And as events spiral out of control Anjali is horrifyingly at the center of it all.

In a sordid world of poverty, misogyny, and political corruption, Jatin must make some hard choices. But what he unearths is only the tip of the iceberg. Together with Anjali he must confront old wounds and uncover long-held secrets before it is too late.



Check out this book if you like pacy reads that also engage with various social issues.


The cover pulls you towards it and makes you want to pick up the book. Doesn't it?

Review: Warlock by Vickram E. Diwan


The story began with a lot of promises to take a reader through a roller coaster ride of intrigue and happenings. I was ready to be thrilled and horrified. What I was not read ready for was the weaving of characters that sounded so real that I found this book unputdownable.

At least for me. The prologue of the story gave me creeps. I could almost hear Chuckie talking to me. Imagine understanding the thoughts of a two-month-old and not being freaked out by it.

The story follows the life of Payal Chatterjee as she gets involved in the scheme of a madman. I loved the way the place has been described with trains and wilderness. I could almost imagine the scene as Payal ran through them as the golden masked man followed her. Goosebumps.

Another character that stayed with me was Rudolf. I am not writing the last name since I can’t even pronounce it. The negative shades that were created in most of the characters left an impact throughout the story.

Don’t read this book looking for logic. This is an out and out thriller, where the writer has taken many creative licenses. And aptly so. A fair warning, the book does not end here but carries on to the next book. This would have been very frustrating if the author had not written the whole book. But he has. Warlock: Valley of Death has been released. I can’t wait to get my hands on that one too but I need a break since it’s too much of a mind play to take in all at once. But that’s me, the romance writer and reader talking. If you love thrillers with psychotic characters and hallucinations where the line spreads thin between imagination and reality - you must pick up this book.

The reason for my star rating…

Story-wise the book deserves a five star but editing could have been much better. Semicolons have been too liberally used and punctuations are missing. But if I could go beyond that to read the story, trust me it’s worth it.

Warlock by Vickram E. Diwaan was published on September 14, 2018.

Review of Fight or Flight by Dana Bachar Grossman


Have you ever traveled with a toddler over a long distance? I have. When my daughter was just a newborn, my hubby decided that being possessive about one’s territory is not good for a child’s upbringing. ‘We need to show her the world,’ he would quip. And me, greedy for this wealth of learning and traveling, I followed suit.  But during those days no one had warned me about the terrorizing moments one can have while traveling with a toddler. Ear pains to runny noses, demands of walking to carrying the child and not daring to move an inch. Glaring at people for talking loudly to looking pathetic under some reproachful stares. You name it, and I have done it all.

So when I got a chance to read Fight or Flight by Dana Bachar Grossman, I was stunned to see her words etching my experiences.  I could empathize with her as she tried to keep her calm and dignity in the flight. The worst thing I have faced while traveling is the rudeness of the fellow passengers. So when Dana says –
That’s just adults crying in their own way! -  
And I can totally understand that. When it’s our kids, we want to collect all the sympathies but when we see other’s doing it, I think we remember our ‘those’ days and want to shut them out. Though the author has given a solution regarding this calling them #GoodDeedOnTheFly, I feel it’s too utopian a concept. But then you never know. An idea can change a society, so why not?

An overall interesting book to read not only for mothers but also for anyone who travels a lot. You never know when you will need the #GoodDeedOntheFly ideas.  Happy travels folks. Stay safe.

Book Review of Lost and Found by Sunanda Chatterjee


A collection of stories can only be called successful if it holds your attention until the last page. from A White Christmas to Letters from Carmen the pages unfurl one emotion after another.

A White Christmas is a story of a woman who takes a second chance in life. This story particularly touched my heart. A couple in love, slightly older and one with responsibilities. How do their family members react to their relationship? Children have this way of putting their parents on a pedestal, forgetting that they are human too. Chatterjee has brought out the conflict of emotions such relationships creates very well.

On the same line, I would also say that the resolution came out too easily but then we have to give it the concession of being a short story.

Two of the stories deal with the father and daughter relationship. Each dealing in the complexities of the relationship in their won. The first one, Since When, has some very heart touching moment. A girl, losing her mother at a very young age, The scene where Mina hears her father saying I love you, brings tears to my eyes.

The Turning Tides, on the other hand, carries the burden of the bittersweet nature of human relationships. A father leaves his land behind and goes to look after his daughter and her son. How his life changes as he grows old is a very heart-wrenching story. The stark reality of this story astounded me. It's the truth. However inhuman we sound - it's the freaking truth.

Lost and Found had a personal touch. Something many women would experience. I like the way how the girl stood for her pride. We need that in today's world.

My favorite of the lot is My Memsaab. The ending will pull at your heartstrings. Pitoli is going to stay with me for a long time. The pathos this story has will make you imagine the life of Pitoli as she travels towards a better life only to be reminded that class and status mattered in the society.

A collection of very well articulated stories. The differences in the culture in every story is well etched and not in one place did I feel that the author has done justice to the cross culture life of the desi's in the USA.

Lost and Found by Sunada Chatterjee was published on September 2, 2017

Review of I am the 10th by Deep Downer


How does a woman go out on a date with her husband, returns home to make love to him and wakes up in another world? A very riveting premise that will take you through the journey of Sarah as she searches for her identity amidst lies and embedded memories. As the line between reality and surreal vanishes, she must know what has happened to her memory before more deaths occur.

Downer has done a commendable job in creating characters from the history to the present day, with uniqueness and mystique that will make this book unputdownable. My first shock came when Sarah confused between New Delhi and New Deli, Missouri and Mussoorie. Clever play with words. The story takes interesting twists and turns as it makes your travel between the past and the present and between different countries.  The second surprise came when we traveled to the court of Chandragupta Maurya to Ashoka. Meeting characters from our past and weaving them in the present has been made the story interesting.

The only peeve I had with this book was the abundant usage of commas. But due to the freshness and the plotting of the scenes, it can be overlooked. Overall I can only say that this book is a mixture of mystery, historical and sci-fi. A must-read for mystery lovers.

I am the 10th by D. R Downer is a self-published book on Amazon, 2019.

Review of The One I love by Nivedita Vedurla

Complexities of relationships are brought out best in a romance. Nivedita Verdula had woven an intrinsic detail of love, loss, and discovery with her characters. The characters meet on a cruise and from then on changes to a story of a contract marriage. Love, at first sight, does not happen as both are engaged to different people at that point in time. Life would have passed them by had Ajay Khurana, father of Akshat Khurana, not taken it into his hand to get them married. He made the circumstances such, that both had to tie the knot with each other – for a  month.  During this period, relationships are explored before reaching a beautiful HEA.  

Please don’t ask me what a HEA is, you will break my heart. :D

The story started off well. The prologue was interesting enough for me to turn the pages of the novel. The story had many sweet moments – like the daughter understanding the pain of her father, Akshat seeing Advika smiling for the first time. The scene where Advika is molested is handled well with not too much detailing but enough to bring out the characterization. The story had many levels of love vs. wealth issues and most of them have been handled well. 

But where the story has a good storyline, the author made a few misses with the technicalities of story writing. The prologue, though intriguing was not addressed further in the story. The epilogue was the conclusion of the book which though is used often by mystery authors falls flat in a romance. The storyline of Harsh needs a bit of clarity. The character of Riyan was interesting and had a good amount of gray shades which kept me interested enough to reach the end. I like bad girls I suppose. Don't judge me! 

The One I love by Nivedita Vedurla is a self-published book on Amazon, 2019.

Book Blitz: Her Man Friday by Sundari Venkatraman




Print Length: 161 pages
Publisher: Flaming Sun (Indie published) 
Publication Date: May 24, 2019
Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC
Language: English
Available on Kindle Unlimited
Genre: Romance

Rituraj realises he’s in love with the Gaekwad princess, Sitara Devi. The timing is slightly wrong though. Just ten minutes ago Sitara Devi married Harishchandra Gajanan. All of seventeen and nursing a badly bruised heart, Rituraj takes up boxing, hoping to build his strength and heal his wounded soul.

When destiny gives them a second chance, hope springs in his heart.

Rituraj grabs the opportunity of becoming Sitara’s bodyguard-cum-assistant. He’s the only man in her life but he’s just her Man Friday. Since his father was merely an employee of Sitara’s father, will he even be considered as a prospective life partner for the Gaekwad princess? 

Sitara, and Rituraj are crazily attracted to each other, yet they are unable to move forward. So where is the hitch? Why the fear in taking the relationship to the next level?

Class Barriers! Debauchery! Sexual Perversion!

It looks like ‘Ne’er the twain shall meet’. 

Read the book to find out if Sitara eventually gets together with her Man Friday.  

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




Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 43 titles (39 books & 4 collections) to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1 Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 

Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.
