SOUL SOJOURN

Soul Sojourn ́ is a melange of real-life stories, experiences, and learnings. The book is divided into chapters called as ́Pitstops ́ where we take a break and ponder over the thought of the day. This book is loosely inspired by the Carpe Diem philosophy! You seize the thought of the day and make it your own interpretation! Writing this book has been an enlightening experience. During this thoughtful journey, I tested my ability to think spontaneously and effectively. It pleasantly surprised me how much I could write in a single day. Writing non-stop for 26 days has increased my confidence in thinking and writing fast. ‘Soul Sojourn’ tops the ‘Goodreads Best Ebooks Ever 2017‘ list.

ROUTE 13: HIGHWAY TO HELL

What happens when 13 writers of horror are trapped in a bus on a stormy night?

Route 13: Highway to Hell, one of the best Indian horror books, is born out of discussions among thirteen horror writers returning from a Lit Fest on a bus. When the bus is caught in terrible weather and leaves the passengers with no net and phone connectivity, they pass their time by telling horrifying stories. Each of whom wanted to tell a tale and grab their readers by the throat. They try to outdo one another with blood-curdling, spine-chilling tales. My maiden horror story ‘The Adventures of a Virgin,’ features in the anthology. You can purchase your copy from Amazon.
