a) In the
changing landscape, according to you what kind of literature is there to stay?
which entertain and inspire will always have a market. Readers want books which
are relatable in terms of subject matter and also simple to read.
b) I understand that your books are crowd
sourced, but before committing to the full manuscript, what are the key points
us, originality of voice is very important. For example, the author may be
telling the same college romance story told countless times before, but if
he/she has an original voice, a view point that gives the story a different
perspective, then we think the book should be published.
a celebrated writer yourself, so now as a publisher, are you planning to stick
to a particular genre or spread your canvas?
are open to fiction and non-fiction books in all genres but our focus is
mass-market, not literary books. The 1st 4 books chosen for publication by
Bloody Good Book are 'Brutal' (thriller), 'Epic Indian Novel' (Humor), 'East
is West' (Parenting) and Roomies/ Foodies (Student Cookbook)
d) Do tell us something about your new
novel Brutal? How many more novels in pipeline and which genre?
is a gripping thriller by author, Uday Satpathy. Two ace
journalists—Prakash and Seema stir up a hornet's nest as they chase the story
of a schoolteacher who murders 11 of his students. Their pursuit of the truth
takes them to the ominous forests of Bandhavgarh where an eerily similar
incident had occurred 8 years ago. One by one, their leads end up dead and they
soon realize that they're pitted against forces more evil and powerful than
they could have ever imagined.

An anecdotal cook book for students abroad written by two young women who were
