you're reading...


Pleased to report that the Deccan Herald had The Unwaba Revelations at #2 on its fiction bestseller list today. I know bestseller lists in India mean next to nothing because the total numbers are so low and the bookstores sampled often don’t reveal any kind of overall trend – Simoqin and Manticore both made their appearances and nothing really changed for me – but I have to say this feels nice. Thank you.

  1. for sure! best sellers are best sellers, whether they sell in context of low/high volumes, or across varying sampling methods. (i thought atleast YOU were paying attention to menon?!!).

    point is …they’re the best of the breed.

    so congrats. take it all in.

  4. Yeah..cant see it yet o Pune shelves.. Manticore was great..this should also be a thrill…tell Sarnath that I managed to find his in Odyessey and Landmark..actually was searching for it for an hour at both places!!

    Is someone doing Manticore as a Graphic novel or are you doing some graphic stuff yourself??

    All the very best..Chaliye Jao!!

  5. Hello hello… nice to find you on the net! I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that authors are real people you can actually communicate with and get to know… Not just names on a shelf!
    Wanted to say that I loved ‘Simoqin Prophecies’ and ‘Manticore’s Secret’… I’m waiting to read Unwaba revelations! I’m slightly jealous because I had a similar idea, now, it’ll just look copied if I try writing it!
    Anyway, Congratulations. I think you deserve it. And enjoy the feeling!

  6. Hey, Unwaba Revelations was just great like the previous ones. I saw this header on your site, are there any more sketches like this one?? If yes, then do try to put them on your site. It’ll be great to see the characters like that. And are you going to write any more books on this story?? I wud love to read them as well !!!!!
