A to Z April Challenge 2024: THEME REVEAL


I used to be a voracious blogger some years ago, writing about every subject close to my heart which included book reviews, film reviews, food recipes, topics on spirituality, things that touched me, and more. Soon, this evolved into writing and publishing short stories, and serialising my novels. 

All this was before I became a self-published author. Subsequent to becoming a self-published author on Amazon, I have removed the stories and novels from my blog. After that, my blog has been dedicated to book blitzes, and occasionally reviews. 

I have also participated in A to Z April Challenge for a few years, having successfully completed the challenge only once, in 2015.

I am determined to go the whole way this year and have a theme all ready. I will be taking my readers through the various self-published books (68, till date) and characters (1099, till date), their journey following the English Alphabet. 

Looking forward to interacting with as many bloggers/writers as possible from around the world in 2024. And I wish everyone of us the very best in participating in this blogging challenge.

Book Blitz: IS THIS LOVE? by Sundari Venkatraman


Publisher: Flaming Sun (Indie published)
Publication Date: March 9, 2024
Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC
Language: English
Genre: Contemporary Romance


On a four-day trip to Singapore for a bachelors’ party, tall, dark, and handsome businessman Vikrant Bakshi is bored out of his wits. Until he happens upon the young and beautiful HR Head of a 6-star hotel, Prisha Lohia, on the hotel’s terrace after midnight.

The overflowing champagne from her own birthday party goes to Prisha’s head. So much so that she kisses Vikrant, a complete stranger, in the middle of the night.

Instantaneous attraction flares between the two. But there is a major problem they need to surmount: He lives and works in Delhi, while she is based in Singapore. 

Even before the couple could find out what kind of feelings they have for each other, another problem looms in front of them—one which is bigger and nastier. 

Will they discover love? 

Sundari Venkatraman is an Indie Author who has 68 books to her credit, the latest book being IS THIS LOVE?, which is a standalone novel. These books have consistently featured in the Top 100 Bestseller Lists 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 #1 Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.

These days, the author is independently publishing her novels in paperback format under her banner Flaming Sun, printed and distributed by Notion Press. 

Even as a child, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome and she grew up on a steady diet of fairy tales, Phantom comics and Mandrake comics. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy ending after the protagonists surmounted all unexpected obstacles.

Once she entered her teens, Sundari switched her loyalties 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 local heroes and heroines. And of course, the joy of vanquishing the ubiquitous evil villains! Her imagination soared and she happily ensconced herself in a rosy romantic cocoon for many years.

Then came the writing—a true bolt from the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.
