Blog Tour: Grow Up Messy! by Paromita Goswami

Title: Grow Up Messy!
Author: Paromita Goswami
Publisher: Ficus India



Blurb:

Childhood is considered to be the best time of one’s life. What if you get a chance to live it once more with a five-year-old? 

Misry, a naughty five-year-old girl, lives with her parents in a B.S.F border outpost near Indo-Bangladesh border. But with no schools and friends she feels very lonely. She tries to befriend some local village kids. But they find her incompetent in their rural antics. They nickname her Messy as most of the time she messes up their plan. Can Misry really be a part of the gang? 
Set in the early eighties, join Misry in the adventures of her life.

Fun Facts About The Characters:




Madhavi is a Bengali lady from a middle class family. She is born and brought up in a small town on the outskirts of Howrah in a very secure and loving atmosphere. She has an elder brother, elder sister and a younger sister. Her father is a professor of Botany and her mother is a housewife. Her marriage to Anurag, a B.S.F officer introduced her to an entirely different lifestyle that she had neither dreamt of nor seen before. Nevertheless, she succeeded in adapting the new lifestyle of being a military man’s wife which was more or less full of uncertainty and waiting. She discovered another side of her personality where she is the actual storehouse of strength for her man who has responsibilities beyond his family needs to attend to. There is also a different avatar of her as an officer’s wife where she has to motivate the soldier’s wife’s to be self reliant and confident as a part of the welfare association programs. When Misry walked into her life, it was an entirely different experience for her. Mothering a naughty little girl was not easy. There were times when she even competed with the Head Cook of the Langar to win her child back.

Anurag is a B.S.F officer who knows how to balance between his personal life and his duties towards his job which is more demanding. When he had married Madhavi, Anurag wasn’t sure how she would match up with his lifestyle.  However, under the spell of his love she had settled  in no time and metamorphosed into an officer’s wife who knew very well  how to control her emotions.  Anurag made sure she was always well taken care. Therefore he always made arrangements beforehand when  he might not be around for some time. When Misry announced her arrival he knew he was going to miss part of her growing up years because of his nature of job. So he made sure that whenever he spent time with her it would always be a memorable moment for both of them. Watching the night sky together laying in a cot in the courtyard or telling her adventure stories from his own life during bed time or always considering her opinion above all were some points Anurag never missed. He knew raising a kid was not an easy job when he himself was not present always on several occasions. So he had his own ways of incorporating values and discipline in his naughty daughter that she adored and obeyed him without any second thoughts.  There were several occasions in the book when Misry’s endeavour  made Anurag doubted if he was a good father or not.

Misry the main character of the book is just like any other child but with a difference that she is quite naughty. However, her innocence wins over  all heart. She maybe just five year old but loves to befriend boys older than her. Tomboy as she is, she  gets into serious trouble with  other boys in school and it is really interesting to watch how she comes out of such situation. Her  little pranks can drive anyone crazy. Like an episode  of Bheeru, the child from the village, where Misry lures him with a dairy milk chocolate to get back into the children’s gang but actually ends up somewhere else. Her  funny fights with her cousin Raju is another hilarious moment.  Grow Up Messy! is all  about being a child.

Surbhi, Madhavi’s elder sister and Raju’s mother is another character to watch out for. I especially like her more. She is a home maker and lives in Kolkata with her husband and younger son, Raju.  A middle aged lady who is more focused on getting worried rather than  finding solutions. There is no doubt that we all have come across one such character once in a life our family. One who is disdained to worry for everyone else in the family. Surbhi is one such character in the book loving nicknamed as Chintamani. Though she doesn’t have much role in the book but it is great to watch out for her. I am sure to give her a good role in the sequence.

Dadu and Dida, Misry’s grandparents, Madhavi’s parents. Just like any other grandparents they also love to shower their love upon their grandchildren. There are some hilarious and touching moments in the book when Misry comes to visit them.  How life is so different in this sleepy town of Ashoknagar is definitely to look out for in the book.

Book Review: The Party Worker by Omar Shahid Hamid

Title: The Party Worker
Author: Omar Shahid Hamid
Publisher: Pan Macmillan India


Review:

Pakistani police officer-cum-novelist Omar Shahid Hamid delivers yet another gritty account of politics and its associated evils. ‘The Party Worker’ as such focuses on corruption and duplicity along with some sordid but keen insights into winning and maintaining power in the big bad world of politics.

It all begins with the murder of a Jewish woman on the steps of the Natural History Museum in New York. A committed NYPD detective picks up the case with the intention of solving it. He sets his eyes on a self-exiled Pakistani politician by the name of Mohammad Ali Pichkari. Disparate lives are thrown together for the purpose of bringing about the downfall of this man who, as it turns out, is the uncrowned king of Karachi. A burnt out New York cop; an octogenarian Parsi businessman sitting in a decaying Karachi mansion; an unconscionable hatchet-man whose days are numbered; a journalist who dreams of the big time — who brings about the downfall of Pichkari and how, forms the crux of this maelstrom of a novel.

The writing is easy to follow. Hamid’s characterizations call for rounds of applauds. His are not two-dimensional figures devoid of nuance; rather these are believable characters and seem to be drawn closely from real-life people. The pace is wonderfully set and is sure to keep readers glued to the pages.

An astutely written and well-crafted work. Just the thing for politics junkies and journalism buffs.

About the Author:

Omar Shahid Hamid has been a police officer in Pakistan for sixteen years and is a senior member of the Karachi Police's Counter Terrorism Department. In 2011, following an attack on his offices by the Pakistani Taliban, he took a five-year sabbatical to write books and worked as a political risk consultant. He has been widely quoted and regularly featured in major news outlets like The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Times, Le Monde, DW, Bloomberg, Reuters, CNN, BBC, France24, Radio France and NPR. His first novel, The Prisoner (2013), was long listed for the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2015 and is now being adapted for a feature film. His second novel is The Spinner’s Tale (2015). In 2016, Omar returned to active duty as a Counter Terrorism Officer.

Crescent Vendetta - Book 1 of the Vendetta Series










WTMO Excerpt Banner Final.jpg
The sounds of howling, growling, and whimpering grew louder drawing his attention away from his intriguing and captivating companion and bowl of slop at his feet.
He returned his focus back to the sound of the crowd screaming that could be heard even through the thick walls. He looked towards the door and then back at her.
“How long does the medication last before you can shift?”
Silence, and then she sighed as her gaze shifted over to the door as well.
“I don’t know. They keep the drugs coming.”
“How long have you been here?”
“Months.”
Travis tried to think of anyone who had gone missing but drew a blank.
“How soon until they return again?”
Her eyes glowed as they went from the door to him, but she answered through their link, a link that was growing stronger.
“Anytime now. They seem to have the effective time span of the serum down pat.”
Just as she finished with that thought, he heard footsteps outside the door, followed by loud cursing and something falling to the ground with a clank.
Travis lay back down, his thoughts racing. How the hell were they going to get out of this?

Desiree L. Scott.jpg

Desiree L. Scott has been writing since she was sixteen years old. There have been many influences within her life that has set her on the path that she cannot help but walk. A few of those influences consist of Karen Rose, Lisa Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list by no means defines my own writing but they have indeed influenced her desire to live outside of her own world and to create the thrill of her dreams.
Desiree lives on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with her ten-year old daughter, with the wonderful addition of four dogs. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty of the country helps her creativity as she sits on her top deck with her laptop and coffee close by.

Genre: Romance

Is this what my life has become… Selling novelty items to couples…

I walked away from it all - the job, and the guy because he thought I was a stripper… The problem, I still want the guy, and I still blush at the word penis. Not as much, but the heat still rises when I stop to think about what I’m saying.

Yes, this is my new life and I have to find the confidence to live it like I own it.

I knew allowing her to walk away that night was a mistake… Now I have to find a way to show that I truly care about her, and maybe then she’ll understand that I can’t live my life without her.

The problem is she only wants to be friends, if that’s the only way I get her then it’ll have to be enough.
