Overview:

Rihana is a painter who is trying to find inspiration in love. Zara is a businesswoman trying to make a niche for her company in a male-dominated world. Rihana is fire, Zara is ice; Rihana is openly sensual, while Zara is more cautious with her heart—they are opposites that attract. They are different people bound together by their house—‘Cupid’—and their pet golden retriever, Tiger.

As both of them navigate their fulfilling careers and try to leave behind troubled pasts, they find solace in each other. But Tiger’s not the only male in their lives. Rihana finds herself a string of sexy men, while Zara emerges out of her shell and meets an actual prince who sweeps her off her feet. But can these relationships last? And what road will they take when love happens bi the way?

Review:

Rihana, a girl full of life and Zara, a quiet and serious kind of a girl. Opposite in nature but had a great bonding. The blurb of the book talks a lot and same is with the cover. I read a lot about the book before reading it and I knew that the subject of the book is LGBT but after reading the book, I can say that the book is having a lot to question. Through her characters, author put questions upon our existing society and some of her points are bang on. You will agree on most of them and that’s what the beauty about this book is. It never leaves you bored within the parameter of ‘Society Satire’ but tries to blend in everything and serve an exciting read for the readers.

Bhavna Arora is a big name among Indian Authors who write in English language but whoever has read her previous book will never have anticipated that her new book would be of this kind. It is actually a very good book and the author has literally nailed it.

Book is full of one liner that you will love to cherish or mark for further reading. Some of the moments are pretty memorial and will stay with you pretty longer. Language is like a flowing river and story is gripping. This book is a perfect read, if you are looking something really good and fresh.

Facebook – How do ‘you’ use it? – My journey over this virtual world.

I think I was late to realize the actual power of facebook. In 2010, I joined this vast network of people from all around the world. The reason of joining facebook was pretty usual and was to stalk girls *Winks* but soon I realized that what I actually was doing on facebook was chatting with my school mates with whom I stay for more than 10 hours daily at school itself.

In 2011, something stuck me and my passion of writing grew. That was the first year of my college life and I was determined to cash this opportunity. Coming out from small town like Agra and landing into the world of passion, Noida (NCR), it was totally a outstanding feeling. In big cities, people actually knows what to do and how to achieve their goals. I learnt a lot from my environment and soon started to live my passion, writing. I started to blog. A story, everyday was my target. Whatever the story is and how-so-ever it feels to write it, I was determined to write.

I wrote for around 5 to 10 days but then lack of audience took over my determination. I was writing but there was no one to read. That was the first time I used the power of facebook. I started sharing my stories in a group of our college. The very next day, people started to atleast recognize me. I won’t say that they started to read my stories, but atleast I came in their attention and that was more than enough for me. Appreciation with some abuses, came to me in package but the most important thing was, connections. Slowly, connections started to build. Like minded people started to appear over my timeline. Chats started to become fruitful. Time spent over facebook increased and parents started to get worried.

That was the time when I met my team of The Author’s Blog and we formed this platform to showcase our skills. We started to explore the layers of marketing of books and came up with many things that could help the authors to reach a larger number of audience. We started to review books over our blog and soon requests started to flood in and the moment your demand increases, it starts to reflect on your pocket. Now parents felt content and we had full support for what we loved to do the most.

We started doing college promotion that attracted many authors and even the publishers. Now was the time to think something big. I launched my first book, ‘Hey Dad! Meet my Mom‘. Facebook was my only way to promote the book and I used every length and breath of the platform. Contacts was the only thing that I looked over facebook and slowly, my ’empire’ started to build. Just while sitting in my living room, I am connected with the whole world, now it was upon me to what to do with these connections. I decided to ‘earn’ living through it.

Soon I co founded Author Paradise that took the concept of ‘The Author’s Blog’ to a new and higher level. Under Author Paradise, we used the connections of facebook to contact authors all around and slowly, we became the fastest growing publicity partner of Upcoming bestsellers.

I am still sitting over the chair of my living room. the platform is same, the world is same in front of me but the motive is different. Facebook, once joined for stalking girls, is now my bread earner. How do ‘you’ use the same?
