Where Words Fail, Music Speaks - Upcoming Release: Cover Reveal for DIgital Anthology

I was reading Annalisa Crawford's blog a few days back, when I came across information about an interesting new digital anthology due for release on the 21st April. The book is in aid of Clusterbusters, an organisation dedicated to finding out all there is to know the horrible phenomenon of cluster headaches, which makes life miserable for those who happen to suffer from it.

Where Words Fail, Music Speaks
A digital anthology with a wide range of authors, Including Annlisa Crawford and many ohters, each with his or her own unique style. Each story is based on the title of a particular 'nineties" song.

Food for Thought - 5 Great Advantages of Books

I was having a chat lately with Diane, one of my friends and we were sharing about our absolutely favourite indulgences when we get a bit of time to ourselves. She told me that when she gets time on her own, away from the kids and husband, she loves to totally indulge herself. I was surprised when she told me her favourite treat. A cup of coffee, a piece of buttered toast and a good book. Although I generally don’t drink alcohol when in India, my treat of choice would probably be a glass of red wine, a bar of chocolate and yes, the book. For me, the book is always non-negotiable.
Having a book blog, has given me online introduction to many authors I probably wouldn’t have otherwise read. Many of them have since become favourite  authors for whose latest releases I eagerly wait. My reading tastes have changed a lot. A few years ago I was reading a lot of romance novels. Nowadays, it’s horror and thrillers. Amazing, isn’t it? How our tastes change as times move on. Of course, it all depe…

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar


As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
