Spotlight: ‘Draupadi – The tale of an empress’ by Saiswaroopa Iyer

The Blurb :
Being born a princess, and raised by a loving father and three doting brothers would make life seem like a bed of roses to any woman. Born out of the sacred fire, Draupadi is no ordinary woman, and her destiny cannot be to walk the beaten path. Witnessing estrangement and betrayal within her own family makes her perceptive and intuitive beyond her years. Complicated marital relationships, a meteoric rise and a fateful loss, humiliation unheard of and a pledge of revenge, all culminating in a bloody war—her ordeal seemed never-ending. Yet she stands up to it all—never succumbing, never breaking. One of the most unforgettable characters of the Mahabharata, Draupadi shows what a woman is capable of. Told with great sensitivity and passion, this book brings alive a character of epic proportions that resonates with every reader across space and time.

Meet Tanay from ‘Take One Fake Fiancé’ – featured by Paromita Goswami

Introducing Tanay – the irresistible hero of ‘Take One Fake Fiancé’

If the car was any indication, detectives must make a lot of money. Mita couldn’t help but admire the comfortable and tasteful interior, but then Tanay changed a gear, his hand brushing her thigh, and she got distracted by the man – by his sheer physical presence.

He looked quite the demigod – the casual outfit showed off tanned skin, and the tight t-shirt highlighted well-toned muscles. Damp, ebony black hair curled about his ears – locks of it falling over a prominent brow made him look boyish and affable; however, an aquiline nose, the thick arching brows, and a firm, square, bearded jaw all totaled up to dangerous.

Character Development in ‘Take One Fake Fiancé’ – featured by Sudesna Ghosh

Tanay Devkumar, who can be seen in all his splendid glory on the cover of Take One Fake Fiance (TOFF), was a difficult man to create. He was to be ruthless and arrogant, suspicious and cynical, but then had to transform into a dream-boat – a sentimental lover craving a happy-ever-after with Mita, the woman he (once-upon-a-time) used to abhor.

Tall order – but here’s what I did:

I started by giving him a double barreled surname, hoping it would convince Mita, my feisty heroine – and also my readers – that he was not an ordinary man, and certainly not one to be toyed with. Then, recognizing how important the physical appearance is, I made sure he was
