About the author
 
 
Veronica Thatcher is an exciting new contemporary romance author. Ever since she was very young, she’s dreamed of becoming a doctor when she grew up. While still forging ahead with that, majoring in pre-med in college, she unwittingly stumbled upon a new dream—becoming a published author. Some may call her an introvert or a wallflower, but she has always found she could express herself better in written, rather than spoken, words. However, never in her wildest dreams had she envisioned she would pursue writing as a prospective career, not just a hobby. Her love for writing goes hand-in-hand with her love for a good romance novel—whether it be a feel-good, sweet romance or a dark, suspenseful one. 
 
When she’s not studying, reading, or writing, she is usually found blasting her favourite songs, sometimes singing and dancing along to them. She dabbles in a number of activities, including painting, karate, singing and dancing. She is a huge chocoholic – probably the biggest – and she is an ice-cream junkie too. She considers herself technologically handicapped forever and has no shame in admitting that. She also deems chocolates her boyfriend, Patrick Dempsey the love of her life, and Friends her life!
 
Her first book, A Way Back Into Love, is slated for release in February 2017, and she hopes readers will enjoy it as much as she enjoyed writing it.

Interview: Rubina Ramesh, author of Knitted Tales #TheBookClub

Today I have on my blog Rubina Ramesh, blogger, supporter of the written word and author of anthology, Knitted Tales.Let’s get to know her through a question and answer session.

  1. How did you become a writer, by chance or by choice?

Thank you Summerita. You are one of my inspirations. So I am totally thrilled to be on your blog today.

I am a writer by chance. I had first started writing at the age of 8. My short stories were published in a local magazine in Patna. But then Life happened and everything went for a toss. After a wave of few tragedies I realized one thing – much to the annoyance of my other family members, crying is not my cup of tea. I take out all my emotions in writing. None of my family members could understand why I was furiously scribbling away when I was supposed to show some emotion at least. I suppose very few people understand the amount of emotions we do pour out on our paper. So ya, chance it is.

  1. Are you a genre writer? Why (or why not)? Which genre appeals to you the most?

No, I am not a genre writer at all. I wish I was. That would give me a nice cushion of an audience who would be waiting for my next release. My Knitted Tales is a collection of psychological to horror tales while my Finding the Angel is an out and out Mills and Book kind of Romance. My next one is tentatively called Maya and is dark romance/ thriller while the next Rising from the Ashes is a mythology. I love all kinds of books. From children’s books to adult romance, I just love books. Period.  Except MBA books. Cannot touch another one.

  1. What makes this book special to you?

Knitted Tales is raw emotions. Written in a group of aspiring authors Wrimo India. The vibes and the criticism that I got during that time, has made me face any reviewer today without batting an eyelid. Hahahah. But yes, this book will always be special to me.

  1. A brief description of the book and its main characters.

The main characters of an anthology 😀 No Summerita, you cannot do this to me! hahaha. But if I have to answer this then I can honestly say my emotions. The day I wrote Chiclet, I had faced a problem in my daughter’s school. Not of that magnitude but it had made my overactive imagination go wild. The Hidden Staircase is an apology to my grandpa for not being there for him when he needed me most. Lolita – that is totally imaginative – so no getting ideas, please. 😀

  1. What are your writing fads or quirks?

Writing fad, if you promise not to laugh, are collecting pens. I have recently come out of the habit of writing on paper and then typing. That brings me to my quirk. I HATE typing. I am now making a conscious effort to type. If you know me well, you will my Facebook statuses sometimes full of errors. I use Dragon speech most of the time, and often slip into my desi accent 😛 The problem starts then.

6.What’s your take on these writing dilemmas? (Please specify the reason for your choice)

i) plotter or pantser: Panster – plotting takes away the fun. What is life if we live by rules. I never do. (nothing illegal please) So why should my characters follow rules?

 

ii) self-publish or traditional: Both. I love the independence self-publishing provides and the recognition traditional provides. The quotient is changing, but we still have a long way to go.

iii) Polished first draft or sloppy one? I cannot have anyone read my sloppy first draft. It will be a professional harakiri (for me).

iv) Deadline or family/friends time: Family – Deadline – Friends. Being the mother of two kids does not give me the luxury of giving priority to the deadline. My friends, on the other hand, are my strength. Those who understand my silence – and never complain, how can I not love them?

v) Writing a certain target every day or in floods and droughts: I aim for 200 words every day. I often end up with droughts. But this is something I am working on nowadays. Every electronic device of mine has word installed. So where ever and whenever I am getting the time, I start writing.

………………………..

Thank you, Rubina. It was fun interviewing you. Honored to be called as your inspiration, but truth be told, you’re an inspiration yourself. Wish you the very best for this book and all the forthcoming ones!

The Story:


The Bollywood diva who ran away 
Piya walked out of an explosive situation three years ago. She married Arfaaz for security but left him facing chaos she created. Now she’s back in Bollywood and searching for the crown she gave up when she ran away. In the competitive world of starry glamour, the only way she can begin her career anew is to trash the past and get a divorce.

The man who wants her atonement 

Arfaaz is determined to get his revenge on Piya for making a farce of their marriage and leaving him to face the mudslinging. He forces her to keep up the appearances and stay with him so she can play the loving wife and repent on her sins. But Piya drives him crazy with her antics. On the top of that, the attraction between them sizzles and threatens to make him forget reason.

A passionate conflict 

Piya knows she has lessons to learn but she cannot let this man enter her heart. There is too much to risk and she cannot afford to forget the real reason she has come back. Success is her mantra and her worship. She can be faithful to only her goal…

About The Author 


Summerita Rhayne writes sensual romance which is sheer escapism with lots of emotional conflict. She first got published in 2013 and has won contests with prestigious publishers such as Harlequin and Harper Collins India. Writing, she finds, is the only way to deal with the numerous story ideas bubbling in her brain which pop up more rapidly than her keyboard can do justice to. Her pet belief is that even when writing time is in short supply, if the inspiration is strong enough, the story characters get a life of their own and will find a way to make the writer pen them down. When cerebrally confronted with the sizzling interaction of two Alpha characters, the only way to get peace is write their book! 



At heart, she’s a family person and even though she loves her medical teaching profession, she happily becomes a homemaker when not at work. She loves winding down with music, movies, cricket (strictly watching only) and social networking.

The Story:


Riley Callahan’s plans to reveal his secret feelings for his best friend are derailed when his life is drastically altered in Afghanistan.



Watching the love of his life fall for his brother was enough to send Riley straight to boot camp. But over a year later, he’s officially a marine, and Beau and Paige are no longer an item. When Riley’s tour in Afghanistan is up, he intends to confess his feelings to Paige and win his best friend’s heart once and for all.



But all that changes when an IED takes the life of a comrade and leaves Riley an amputee. Now he’s heading home, injured and troubled. His plans to win Paige are a distant dream. She deserves so much more than the man that’s left. All he can do now is put some healthy distance between them. But upon his return he discovers his family has arranged for him to stay with Paige.



Paige is a nurturer at heart and happy to take care of her best buddy. By all appearances Riley is adjusting miraculously well to his disability. But as the days pass, Paige begins to see that the smiles and laughter are just a mask for the pain he’s hiding. To make matters worse, her job is in serious jeopardy. The animal shelter that she’s poured her heart into has lost its funding, and she has three months to come up with the money needed to save it.



As the weeks wear on, Paige’s feelings for Riley begin to shift into uncharted territory. Why is she suddenly noticing his arm muscles and the way his lips curl at the corners? Will she be able to deny her feelings for another Callahan brother? And will Riley let his heart heal so he can let Paige in?

Spotlight: Book #33 #TornadoGiveaway3 – A Forgotten Affair by Kanchana Banerjee

Name of the book: A Forgotten Affair

Author: Kanchana Banerjee

Read a review:

  1. Inderpreet Uppal
  2. Janaki
  3. Archana Sarat

The Story:

Sagarika Mehta walks out of her nine-year-old marriage, meets with a near-fatal accident and goes into a deep coma all on the same day. After six months, she wakes up with no memory of her past. When she is discharged from hospital a year later, Rishab, her husband, whisks her away to an unfamiliar address in Gurgaon to convalesce.
There, in that plush apartment, with people waiting on her hand and foot, Sagarika can’t shake off the feeling that something is wrong.
Why does the scent of a particular cologne unsettle her? Why does the innocuous word ‘cheeni’ bother her? And why is Rishab so evasive in response to her queries about her past?
‘A Forgotten Affair’ is a gripping story of a woman caught between two worlds.
