Debut Indian Writers Month 2012
The Tales Pensieve & Random House Publishers India present the mother of book giveaways this October 2012.
A month long celebration of exciting debut Indian writing and up for grabs are these two!
Extending the Debut Indian Writers Challenge, I am raising the bar on my side of the challenge. Every Tuesday and Friday of October 2012 will see a review of the first book of a writer of Indian origin – the swadeshi movement of debut writing 😉
For you my friends, the deal is simple. There will be 10 book reviews between 1st and 31st October, 2012. Each review will be accompanied with a question. Answer the question and if we love your answer, bingo! the good people at Random House Publishers will send you both these beauties.
p.s.: All the rules of Debut Indian Writers Challenge apply to this contest with the exception that we will have a SuperWinner and a Superstar WordMaverick this month. And I don’t have to tell you that the more reviews you participate in, more your chances to get that package home.
Four and a Half weeks of newness

The Indian bloodline brings them together, on The Tales Pensieve.
Star performances at this review party in order of my lovability of the book are:

2. 3 lives: In search of bliss by Srini Chandra
3. The Aryavarta Chronicles Book I: Govinda by Krishna Udayasankar

6. Quarantine by Rahul Mehta
7. Death in Mumbai by Meenal Bhaghel
8. Untruly Yours by Smita Shetty

An interesting answer to any or all of these will get you to the beauties and make you the October SuperWinner. Go on comment on as many as you wish!
