The Mystery of Bila Land

Varchaswi

Was enchanted by the mystery land. Chapters are too long. Needs a lot of slashing. Mood and character expression should be blended further to achieve a crisp script. Detailed description of landscapes shows the authors skill as an artist.....

Well… Goosebumps are guaranteed for the readers…. The author had the knack to provide the shocks needed for a horror read….. A little bit of non linear plotting would help in increasing the hook value. ‘Good work,’ is the least I can say...

The Unvanquished

Varchaswi

Well! Well! Who can resist the charm of Indian epics…. While the chapters have been crisp and tight, who does not connect to the emotion of a child-mother relation? However, I have to say; that every book has a theme and I could not grasp it. Is it the character journey…… is it redemption that a character seeks…… is it social or individual acceptance sought after…. what is the premise underlying the author’s expression of a novel….? ….This may be due to lack of detailed synopsis. Anyway, as long as the content pulls the reader into it, it is useless to think of other things…. While the book itself may end up being gold (I cannot comment on this because I do not have the entire script), the way it will be pushed into the hands of the target audience, is what decides if this ends up as a chartbuster or otherwise….

An Autograph for Anjali

Varchaswi

The author definitely proves to be skilled at leaving doubts and questions in the mind of readers; which are the foundation stones of thriller writing… one thing I wish I could suggest, is to embed a prologue with some marketable content in it….While a story is the backbone for any kind of novel, there will be every chance, to blend some sort of entertainment, male-female chemistry etc, into the theme. If this can go into the prologue, the readers will be begging for more, even before they begin to read the first chapter.

Summons from the Creator

Varchaswi

Dear Ms Priya. Great work..... Of the many parameters needed to test a book, story arc is only one of the many. However, in addition to it, the book needs marketable content which your book definitely has. I believe that a little brevity would do just good.

Nirvana In A Corporate Suit--Magical Memoir Of A Nameless Corporate Guy

Varchaswi

Dear Nupur, a great effort.......i am forced to believe that you are spiritualist...the book is engaging and absorbing........my only complaint is my inability to identify the target readers for which the book is meant....however, since this seems to be a kindaa memoir, that doesnot count much..... As to the commercial and marketable value of thw book, I cannot comment unless i go through the full book....but be assured that the book was a good effort.... :)

Dear Miss Yamini, let me congratulate you for a good job. But my rating is only three out of five. First let us speak about the positives. A different premise:good. A good and visual description:good. Then let us go to the other aspects. Synopsis too long. But that is a mistake even i did as a first writer. However, the good thing about the synopsis is that it hooks you at the end. Other thing is that the first three chapters donot move the story too much and hence the fear for character's survival cannot be connected to the readers emotion. As for some suggestions, which you have every right to reject, i have them. First, i believe that if your character is a college girl who wants to reunite with her boyfriend and who has a past that a college goer connects to, you can get the college going teens to connect and show interest in your theme. Further, I had the chance to read only 3 chapters, but from the synopsis, i believe that your story has a great potential to be narrated as a thriller with the fear of survival and the promise of an adventure into the ancient, unless it is too generic. I hope you donot mind about the three star. It is because I couldn't get a total glimpse... Anyway put up the good effort... I do believe that the premise has a great potential to be commercial thriller, if the right elements have been added in the right proportion.....

Dear Aviral, Good work. Except for the first story, I liked the remaining. They has something called as emotional power. I donot know if you have fished out these stories out of your experience or imagination backed by sound principles. If it is out of imagination, then you have something in you to be successful writer. As to the narrative, being a debut author, it will need some editing work, slashing of unnecessary words etc.. But as to the emotion itself, you were true to it which is what every outstanding editor would keep as their first priority. I couldnot connect to your first story, but it has visual writing.. So overall, you did a good job. As to the element of commercialism, it is something which has to be tested in the market for short stories are not received all the same, even though they might be good. So if you want to do more research i would recommend Chekov. But keep up the effort....

Life's Status: it's Complicated!!!

Let me also give the positive points first...... Your are bold enough to test yourself in the world of writing without the fear of being judged. It goes a long way.....You are good at writing subtext but that alone will not power up the story...Then let us go to the other parts....There is too much narrative...I was unable to understand the target audience and your vision for the book...But a good try...One of the many tips if your want to write a commercially successful book is to answer the question... Will any of the actors out there love to act the characters in your book..? Why..? Though this might not shape out in first three chapters.. It will act as a strong point to use in the sales pitch..
