A Brief Peek Into My eBook: Eighty Hours To Save Karen

A Brief Peek Into My eBook: Eighty Hours To Save Karen

I have never believed that I had the skills to write extensively. Other than a small independence day speech in my 5th grade and essays as part of my academic curriculum in school, I have never attempted to write anything that required writing skills or imagination on a large scale. 

It was a chance suggestion from a friend that set me off on my writing journey. My first attempt at writing was a poem inspired by the antics of my mischievous twelve-year-old daughter. I presented this poem in my organization's founding day function and it was a huge hit. To cut a long story short, I soon started a blog and began posting poems regularly.

Soon poems gave way to articles. Articles were followed by photography. And then along came Blogchatter's e-book carnival and I made my first attempt at fiction. I wrote my first eBook Eighty Hours To Save Karen. It is a novella of just a hundred pages and I assure you it will hold you spellbound from beginning to end. 

Here are a couple of snippets from the reviews the novella received.

Here is what Priyanka Vermani has to say about Eighty Hours To Save Karen: The writer definitely has a knack for writing thrillers. The pace of the book is very tight. No extra sentence here or there. Like after watching suspense movies you dissect the scenes in your head, as in what happened that led the protagonist to think this way or that way. I found myself doing the same for this book.

Says Nupur Maskara: This is a very different book. The author’s style is engaging. He uses detail to great effect to create the mood he wants. We get to know about the characters through their actions more than description, which is far more powerful. Looking forward to more of the author’s work.
