Love Has Many Faces - Book Review


Love Has Many Faces
By Lisa Morgan with Naula Giblin
Review By Ila Garg


Love Has Many Faces, a novel by Lisa Morgan, is published by herself. The cover has a subtle shade in the backdrop and shows a woman with her head lying low—maybe she is depressed, tired of struggling, crying, saddened, or a combination of all these emotions. The sub-title—Spectacular True Story of Love, Lies, the Ultimate betrayal and Escape to Freedom—further points out at its autobiographical nature.

Spirit Flows Power Glows - Book Review


Spirit Flows Power Glows
By Keerthi Singhe
Review By Ila Garg


Spirit Flows Power Glows, a novel by Keerthi Singhe, is published by Notion Press. The cover is quite simple, with no illustrations, nothing. It’s just shades of saffron. The sub-title—Success starts in your heart—is so eye-catchy and relatable. So is this a book on success mantra then? Or a self-help sort of guide? Let’s look at the author’s bio and blurb before we venture further.

Inkredia­—Luwan of Brida
By Sarang Mahajan
Review By Ila Garg


Inkredia—Luwan of Brida, a novel by Sarang Mahajan, is published by Gloryburg Publising LLP. The subtitle—Danger looms tall. Mystery runs deep; is intriguing as well as gripping. The cover is in fiery shades with a symbol at the centre and fire around it. With such an interesting cover, I was sure it would not disappoint me.

Chronux - Book Review


Chronux
By Sagar Kamath
Review By Ila Garg


Chronux, a novel by Sagar Kamath, is published by BecomeShakespeare.com. The cover seems quite unusual at first glance! It looks like a horror book. But if you look closely, you will see the clock hand and if you are a visionary like me, you would be able to actually visualize the clock in the backdrop. Anyway, as you will go on reading the book, the cover will start making sense by and by.

Are you there God? It's me, Ila.

Last week, has been so tricky that I can't help but turn to God (if He exists).

From the pen of a shy girl...

Recently, I became an editorial mentor for www.urbookmyreview.com

I have four interns under me. I decided to give them their first task which would help them look within. So, I told them to write about their writing journey, how they started writing, how writing helped them deal with their life.

I was totally amazed to see how they handled the task so well. They honestly penned down their stories. I gave them individual feedback too. But there's this one assignment that I loved the most, so with due permission from my intern Padmaja Phatak. I am sharing it with you all.

Save the Language, Save the Identities!
