Sage Durvasa’s curse makes not just Indra, the Deva king, but also all the other Devas, lose their powers. 

The completely shaken Devas rush to Lord Vishnu for help. The Blue Lord suggests that they churn the ocean of milk for Amrut, a divine potion, that would help them get back their lost powers and more.

For this, the Devas seek the help of their strong half-brothers, the evil Asuras. With Mount Mandara as the churning rod and the serpent king Vasuki as the rope, the Devas and Asuras begin the churning of the ocean.

When the mountain sinks into the ocean without support, it’s Lord Vishnu to the rescue as Kurma, the tortoise.

Read the story of Samudra Manthan to know about all the avatars Lord Vishnu takes in this segment to save the situation.

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR





This is the first foray into the mythology genre for the author and also the first book that she's written for children. 

Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 28 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 

Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 

Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Book Blitz: CHERISHED: CONCLUSION TO A PROMISE by Reshma Ranjan

If you are a fan of contemporary romances set in India





Print Length: 95 pages
Publication Date: March 20, 2018
Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC
Language: English
Available on Kindle Unlimited 
Genre: Romance 

The last thing Sujal Verma had expected while working out that evening was a desperate call for help. 

For Sunanda, life was like a romantic movie, all dreamy and beautiful, until trouble comes from close quarters. 

Was history repeating itself? Will Sujal be able to save Sunanda from the trauma and pain? Will the reality crush her wings or will she hold on to her buoyant nature and not let the smile on her lips fade away?

All actions have consequences. The consequence of Sunaina's actions in A Promise (Book 2 in the series) plays out in her step-sister Sunanda's life in this novella.

Cherished is Book 3 of the Verma Clan’s Sanctum Series and the conclusion of A Promise. It is the story of a girl who wakes up from a nightmare to realize that the world could be as colorful as the movies she loved to watch. 

Cherished can be read as a standalone book as well. 

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR





Reshma Ranjan is a passionate romantic who loves literature and has been driven by the romance in nature and the serenity and humbleness of this universe, one who made up her own happy endings in her imagination for every movie or every book with a sad ending.

Also a voracious reader but for which she believes she never could have started writing. Pssttt... And is completely addicted to Barbara Cartland romances.

Blog Tour: RISING FROM THE ASHES: A Short Story: Prequel to Knitted Tales 2 by Rubina Ramesh



RISING FROM THE ASHES: 
A Short Story: Prequel to Knitted Tales 2 
by 
Rubina Ramesh



My Review


Rubina Ramesh's latest book is a short story and one based on Indian mythology. I have heard of Rati and Kama, but haven't read this angle ever before. Lovely story with a surprising twist. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Looking forward to reading the rest of the story in Knitted Tales 2.


BLURB

She was one of the most beautiful woman Asura Sambara had laid his eyes on. 

Possessing a beauty of this magnitude became his passion. Sambara kidnapped her and whisked her off to his palace. 

Mayavati knows she has no option but to bow down to his wishes. But what about the young man who always haunts her dreams? She had no clue why she was in this palace but after speaking to the mischief making Sage Narada, it all started making sense to her. 

Who was Mayavati and what was she doing in Asura’s palace? 

Was Sambara her destiny? 

Disclaimer: This short story is a mythological fiction and should be treated as such. The author does not claim it to be a retelling of the Puranas. This piece is a product of her unbridled imagination.

You rested on my lap, opened yourself before me and shared your fantasies with me.
Then the stories ended and you turned back into a book.

If you are a big fan of word play, this micro tale is for you-

“You’re the one,” he says; he’s lying. 
“I never doubted it,” she says; she’s lying. 
They’re lying in bed.
