rubina vol 2

Walking on the Path of Indie Publishing by Rubina Ramesh is the second book in the series of The Writer’s Toolkit. The cover is simple as it is just a manual for publishing a book. The author has sectioned this book which explains the basic steps of publishing.

Besides writing a book there are many more steps which an author has to go through. This has been delineated by Rubina wonderfully. I especially loved the way the author has sited examples from her books and others.

Besides being a great writer, Rubina is a multi-talented person who is a pro at editing, beta reading, marketing and now kindle publishing.

Through her book, Rubina has given wings to the other authors who are struggling to find the right set of people for their book.

I am in awe with the Toolkit series. It is a must buy book and you can finish it in minutes. The contents of this book are more for implementing.

Book Review of In the Flickering of an Eye

In the Flickering of an Eye by Neelam Saxena Chandra is a romantic fiction. This book is not like those lovey dovey romance. It highlights the spiritual concept of love, yes the ones we see in old generations. This type of love is always there and it never gets outdated. The story is set at a time when love was considered as a sin.

Sneek Peek: Twenty five years worth of ‘what ifs’ and ‘if onlys’ have haunted and tortured Vinay. He cannot help but go back in time again and again to that one moment that changed his life forever. A chance encounter with a person from his past, and a journey through the majestic hills of Kalimpong lead him to some of his answers, in the form of an elusive woman, who bears a striking resemblance to the woman he loved and lost. Will he finally get his happily-ever-after? Or will his story, tarnished when he was nineteen by the gotra system, forever be punctuated with too many fullstops? Read on to find out more.

My Review:

The story is set in Dhanoi Village where love is considered as a crime and ghotra system seems to be prevalent there. Vinay and Manju are the protagonists whose love story seems to be the toughest. Life takes a turn when these two lovers get separated by fate. Things take a new way when they again meet after twenty years. In this book, Neelam has talked about ghotra system, illiteracy of the village people, stream of consciousness technique, fate, chance and separation of lovers.  The cover is eye catching where the title has uniqueness in it. The style is simple, lucid and easy to understand with. Neelam has beautifully described the surroundings in a novel. When the train is moving, one can feel travelling in it. The situations sound realistic and at times you feel you are watching a movie.
