Join the Connecting Authors & Reviewers Group!

If you're a reviewer looking for books to review or you're an author who wants to get more reviews for your book, the Connecting Authors & Reviewers Facebook Group is for you! It's the perfect place to meet new and talented authors and reviewers. It's a very active group too. During the first few hours of my membership in this group, I was able to connect with three authors, one of whom is the amazing Jodie B. Cooper who asked me to review her book Stolen (Song of the Sidhi). :) See you there, fellow book lovers!

  1. Hi Mai,

    Would you care to review my book, Tell A Thousand Lies, the unpublished manuscript of which was shortlisted for the 2012 Tibor
    Jones South Asia prize?

    Here's a brief synopsis:
    In a land where skin colour can determine one's destiny, fraternal twins PULLAMMA and LATA are about to embark on a journey that will tear their lives apart.

    Dark skinned Pullamma dreams of being a wife. With three girls in her family, the sixteen year old is aware there isn't enough dowry to
    secure suitable husbands for them all. But a girl can hope. She's well versed in cooking, pickle making, cow washing -- you name it. She's
    also obliged her old-fashioned grandmother by not doing well in school.

    Fair skinned and pretty, her twin sister Lata would rather study medicine than get married. Unable to grasp the depth of Lata's desire,
    the twins' Grandmother formalizes a wedding alliance for the girl.

    Distraught, Lata rebels, with devastating consequences.

    As Pullamma helps ready the house for her older sister Malli's bride viewing, she prays for a positive outcome to the event. What happens
    next is so inconceivable that it will shape Pullamma's future in ways she couldn't have foreseen.

    TELL A THOUSAND LIES is a sometimes wry, sometimes sad, but ultimately realistic look at how superstition and the colour of a girl's skin
    rules India's hinterlands.

    Genre: Women's Fiction
    When I'd like the review posted? Whenever you're able.

    Should you care to read it, would you consider an ebook because I live in India?
