Bookstagrammer Interview: Bronte Huskinson

Bronte Huskinson is a lady who is sweet and fierce in the way she talks about books, issues, and everything in between that you can’t help but admire her through your mobile screen. Her aesthetic is on point, as they call it these days. Her blog is smart and pleasing to the eye as well as the mind. She plans her content out, at a level that’s nothing short of inspirational. I basically hang on to every word that she has to say.

Déjà Vu.

I don’t believe in divine intervention by a large margin. If that were the case, things would have been very, very different for me by now.

Courtesy – The Trait That’s Going Extinct – A Sequel

I had narrated the story of how some people thought it was below them to talk courteously to the baristas at a coffeeshop a while ago. But that, perhaps, isn’t the only pertinent question.

Evolution – Humankind Being Too Obsessed with Itself!

The looming water crisis, that not many people are worried about, made me revamp this blog post – an essay that I had written quite a while ago. Wake up, people! It’s getting serious, and we need to help!

Is Courtesy Going Extinct?

This happened more than 3 years ago when thoughts of marketing and promotions for my book, Of Knights and Lilies were taking up most of my time and thoughts. But there were also a few unwelcome questions that I had to unwillingly entertain. These were thanks to some incidents that clawed at my insides when I really didn’t want them to. They clamored for answers while I just looked on in shock.

Cover Reveal: A Death in the Himalayas by Udayan Mukherjee

I want to write a long-winding introduction for this cover reveal but I'm really left speechless, because of what the book is all about. A murder mystery that takes you to the foothills of the Himalayas and then back into mainstream India where women's safety will kick on your head as you read this one, A Death in the Himalayas promises to be one cracker of a mystery novel.
