Notion Press contacted me recently to blog about their self-publishing services for authors who don’t want to go the traditional publishing route. Since self-publishing is quite a novel concept in India, and there is so less information about what to do and what not to do out there, I thought the services offered by Notion Press would be very useful for aspiring authors.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been trying to read books with a little more substance, but to be honest, now, I have such little time to read that I need page-turners. Something to get into quickly and something that diverts my mind from my overflowing inbox at work, and kids’ demands at home.

I’ve worked myself to the bone that past month. Which means that the Man Booker reading list I started on so ambitiously three months ago has sputtered to a halt for now. I had started on The Year of the Runaways by Sunjeev Sahota, but my mind was too dulled down to process it satisfactorily.
Instead, I randomly picked up two review books that had come in.
I fell in love with this cover when Penguin Random House sent me this book for review.
