I am glad to say that my short story, ‘The Singers’ has been included in the WRIMO India Anthology – ‘VENGEANCE: A Sting in every Tale’. This is a Kindle eBook containing collection of short stories written by WRIMO India authors and edited by Sonia Rao. I made the above poster in accordance with the theme of my story in the book. There are short stories written by other authors too.
NaNoWriMo is a global organization that provides a platform to encourage budding authors to write the novel that they’ve been wanting to. The main event happens during the month of November where millions of authors from around the world encourage each other to try and complete the first draft of their novel, with at least 50K words, to be declared a winner.
We have an active Facebook group for the Indian chapter of NaNoWriMo: WRIMO India. Initially, we were writing short stories and submitting them for critique by fellow authors. While doing that, we got an idea to select and publish a few stories on a particular theme as an eBook. All the proceeds from the sales of this book will go to NaNoWriMo.
This book was released by Bollywood actor & author Olivier Lafont during the recently concluded Litventure 2015 @ Mumbai. The theme for this anthology is: VENGEANCE.
We are all budding authors, so you can’t expect our writing to be as good as Stephen King or Jane Austen 😛 While there is room for improvement and we are open to reader feedback, be assured that we have made our best possible effort to write the best possible stories. If you like to read short stories, this book is for you.
**Update: For Bloggers reviewing books, we are authorized to send a PDF copy of this book. If you want it, just let me know in the comments or by email, I’ll send it to you 🙂
PS: I am planning to publish an anthology of my own soon, stay tuned 🙂
