Author Highlight: Connor Royce Discusses his New Novel ‘Don Roberto's Daughter: Natasha’ and Stories from his Life

We are delighted to welcome a very promising novelist Connor Royce for a brief Q & A session at our website about his recent novel ‘Don Roberto's Daughter: Natasha’.
In this Q & A session, he will be talking about his writing aspirations, inclination towards contemporary romance fiction, and the route to getting his novel published. Stay on...while we chat with him.
Would you mind telling a bit about your novel – maybe in two or three sentences? This novel is closely based on a true story. It is the love story that I lived while watching my beautiful young wife fighting for her life against the ravages of brutal disease. What inspired you to write this novel? Any tales... I was often asked about how I met my wife, and when I told the story I kept hearing, "It sounds like a romance novel." I finally decided they were right and abandoned my other writing project to focus on this one. Do you think that cross-border rules cause trouble for common folks, especially …

Book Review: A Thread So Fine by Susan Welch

A Thread So Fine is an apt title and an evocative story of two almost inseparable sisters: Shannon and Eliza. When the story kicks off, they are chirpy teenagers, all excited for college and romance. However, fate has something different in store for them.

The sisters with their family lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. Shannon is around eleven months elder to Eliza. However, it is Eliza who is keen to achieve higher sense of achievements in life i.e. education and career. Simply, she is too ambitious for a traditional society like St. Paul. On the other hand, Shannon would love to emulate her sister, but Eliza overwhelmingly cares for her.
As the story chugs ahead, Shannon suffers from severe tuberculosis, subsequently she is hospitalized for ten months in isolation and undergoes many surgeries. Finally, she is saved from the deathbed. On the other side of the story, Eliza begins dating David. But well before their story could reach a point of culmination, she is being assaulted and raped…

Book Review: Silhouette and Other Poems by Tasnima Yasmin

Silhouette and Other Poems by Tasnima Yasmin is a short collection of poems, mainly featured around the contemporary themes of the modern world. The book has on offer 24 poems, capturing various topics about your lives’ humdrum existence and moments in cogitation.

The collection starts with Kaput – this poem brings out the brutality of the commerce world, as how is something captured and destroyed and then turned into a piece of merchandize to benefit a few. Probably, the poet tried conveying that we humans have been exploiting the mother earth for more than that we need. It’s time to stop all on the name of business. Next in the collection is ‘School Days’, a happy poem which inevitably reminisces golden days of many.
Whether the poems are about technology, relationship, or any random subject; a kind of tenderness is evident throughout. At every juncture, all the time, each poem tries delving deep into some strange sort of abyss. Yes, in many poems the themes run dark, but the scream…

Book Review: A Collection of Interesting Encounters with Cryptids by Mostyn Heilmannovsky

Reading a horror genre book is quite common nowadays, but how many times did you ever stumbled upon a book that overwhelmingly grips you with so much thrill that you go amok. Probably, you don’t remember exactly, or very rare as it happens.


Well, today, on the similar lines, we have a book on the review: a collection of 18 stories. It is A Collection of Interesting Encounters with Cryptids written by Mostyn Heilmannovsky. The book is not only innovative in its semblance, but also gripping with its all stories, providing excellent coverage on Cryptids: a kind of bipedal hairy species found and seen very rarely, like once in a millennium. In fact, science says that nothing like Cryptids exist in the world, however, this brilliantly penned down book by Mostyn says it otherwise.
Mostyn takes us to the dark places and lonely forests where myths rule over the facts about Bigfoot (also called Sasquatch), Dogman, Vampire (in the last story), Troll, Werecats, Yowie, Skinwalker, and a few more…

Book Review: Yes Sir I Killed My Dad by Anuj Tikku

Earlier Anuj Tikku would be a common face among TV serials, commercial ads, and movies. Many people have been known him, as he was into Bollywood for some time and gained good fame in less time. But do you know the inside story, as why he is not today so present there, what shook him, what put his life upside down, and much more? If you are curious enough, well, then his recent short novel – Yes Sir I Killed My Dad – will unfold all your curious questions.

Narrated into a biographic tone, it is a terrific account of a son telling the story of his beloved father who got murdered brutally, and after that Anuj was framed for it. What could be worse for a son than that?
Let’s get a bit into the story. Like any other upper middle class family, Anuj Tikku was, too, a part of the happy living life. He was studious. Did his MBA and working for a big company. He was married as well. But soon his dream to make a place in Bollywood begin rattling his roots. Leaving Delhi and his family there,…

Book Review: Falling In Love Again (Stories of Love and Romance) by Ruskin Bond

Ruskin Bond, the man who noticed those dusty roads, fresh flowers drenched in sun rays, water dripping off the leaves, gushing through the rivers and the heavenly smell of earth after the first rain before anyone else. He noticed it all when we failed and decided to make us walk through all of it in a blink of an eye like he always does. That's the power he holds, the true magician who needs no introduction.

'Falling in love again' is one of the finest amalgamations of romantic tales, poems, and novel extracts gifted to us by the eternal lover, Ruskin Bond. The title resonates with the author's vivid memories of the emotion of love, as well as with the cover of the book.
What's more beautiful than an oodles of butterflies and flowers to signify this distinct charm of emotion called 'love'?
This book revolves around a collection of short stories taking us, the reader into a pure, innocent world. A world full of longings, promises and tiny fluttery sensation…

En esta sesión de Preguntas y Respuestas, el hablará sobre sus aspiraciones literarias, su inclinación a las obras de ficción espiritual contemporánea y lo que lo condujo a la publicación de esta obra. No se vayan y observen la conversación…
Podría Usted decirnos algo sobre su libro – si es posible, en dos o tres sentencias? Pienso que lo que nosotros escribimos expresa sentimientos y pensamientos que comenzaron a explorar nuestra mente desde el primer día que nacemos, y quién sabe, pudieran remontarse al pasado más distante. Nuestros genes (que heredamos de muchas generaciones) trabajan laboriosamente para determinar qué tipo de persona llegaremos a ser.
Pensamientos sobre Dios ocupan la mente de todos los humanos, incluso la mente de aquellos que no creen que Dios…
