How I came across the book and what I feel about it -

One morning I opened my mail box to find a mail from the author, Santosh Avvannavar. He had read some of the other reviews I had written on my blog and asked me to review his books. In the beginning I was skeptical as his work seemed to be “different” and I wondered if I would be able to do justice to him and his skills. After reading about him and going through the reviews of his book I decided to take on the challenge. I hope I am able to use the appropriate words to describe his style of writing and the creative ideas that he tastefully uses in his work! 

The book Surrogate Author talks about the anguish and the challenges that every author faces….the questions that come up in our minds! Creatively written in dialogue format, the book includes characters from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s – Devdas and the 9 months involved in child birth to explore the entire process of writing. Kudos to the writers for using this method to encourage aspiring authors! I especially liked the way that the authors have described Ideas, keywords and other processes involved in a manuscript. A budding writer will certainly benefit from such details.

What I feel did not work -

As an Editor and English language teacher who is forever looking for grammatical and punctuation errors, the little editing lapses in the book did stop the flow. Of course, since this is the first edition, I am sure that the second edition will be without flaws!
