Friends asking ‘When is the next novel coming out?’ can now be given a positive answer. The book launch of ‘Bombay Baby’ the second novel is on 24th November at the Centre for Contemporary Arts(CCA) 350 Sauchiehall Street hosted by the Scottish Writers Centre at 7pm.There is a cafe and a bar on the premises. It is a busy place buzzing with interesting programmes every day of the week. I hope people would buy a copy of ‘Bombay Baby’ and maybe even give some as a Christmas present to others.
The editor Farhana of Dahlia Publishing Ltd who has taken this book on has been a great help in shaping the novel and polishing it for the readers. I had heard of the second book syndrome but did not realize how difficult it was till I started ‘Bombay Baby.’ There are readers out there who have some expectations.
Here are some comments from readers of ‘Twice Born.’
