1. 'FERAL THOUGHTS: POETRY FOR THE UNTAMED SOUL' BY AUTHOR SHEETAL BHADAURIYA

ABOUT THE BOOK

The book is a collection of verses, poetries with which any reader can easily resonate. One should not cage their thoughts into their minds. Our thoughts are like wild horses. Let it out, let them be free and breathe. The mood of the poems has been brewed between the bitter to extreme joyous moments of life which should be celebrated often. There will come a day when you'll feel unbothered like I do. As a writer, I have tried to introduce a new way to interact with the reader to pave the way for them to understand what exactly I want to convey. I call it “Conclusive Poetry” cause the reader kept on reading thinking about something else and then the title, which I give is at the end, actually directs them where to look from my perspective. A lot of people loved this kind of poetry so far and I got multiple positive reviews.


All the poems in this book “Feral Thoughts”, I believe, is my responsibility, as an author to show a reader the right direction. I cannot just leave the reader hanging, that’s what I feel.


This book is a beautiful palette of emotions, a comment on society for kicking some taboos and a voice for readers who are still searching for their place in this world. This book is Me. I am on every page and every word.


The book is available on Amazon in Kindle & Paperback format and has a global rating of 4.9 stars out of 5. CLICK HERE TO BUY THE BOOK.

2. 'AN UNQUENCHABLE EXCESS OF LOVE' BY AUTHOR ANJUTHA RANGANATHAN

ABOUT THE BOOK

“Even when you hate them,

You can’t deny the fact that

The hate in itself comes from

An Unquenchable Excess of Love.”


Love, a four-letter word that rules the world, is the ultimate source of immense pleasure as well as the deepest pain. It creates magic as well as havoc. This collection of poems looks at love from every angle, to paint an honest and beautiful image of what it means to fall in love.


Let’s take life as it is. We are all humans and love is inevitable to us. ‘The Falling’, ‘The Breaking’ and ‘The Healing’ is what’s supposed to happen to us. Otherwise, if lucky, we only fall in love and forever.


An Unquenchable Excess of Love is for someone who has loved so passionately and has faced tremendous destruction by it and ultimately grown, become wise and shone out of it.


An Unquenchable Excess of Love" is my debut poetry book and a dream come true. I had never imagined that people would be showering their love and support so much on my book. And when a random person texts me and says, they loved the book, it’s an epitome of a modern poetry book, please release the next book soon, etc-- It feels so grateful and blessed and beyond the world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANJUTHA RANGANATHAN

My journey as an author has not been a cakewalk. It is a long journey of ups and downs. Honestly, when I started writing, I had never imagined becoming an author. There were many times, I completely thought of giving up and never write again. But only later I realized, that it’s normal for every writer to feel this way; to have “Writer’s block.” So I started to embrace my imperfections slowly and started to gear up the confidence to write more and more. “I wrote when I was sad, I wrote when I felt lonely, I wrote when people pulled me down, I wrote when I was so happy, I wrote when something bothered me...I wrote all of my feelings” and that’s how everything started. So, I've been writing since my UG days, but I wrote mostly for my love for writing and to purge my emotions out. Never intended to publish a book back then. I usually shared my writings on my social media handles, where slowly people started to like and support my work. It motivated me to write more. My journey as an author so far and definitely there’s a long way ahead. And I’m looking forward to it with all my heart.

ABOUT THE BOOK

With failed expectations in success and relationships of people, Sonal found herself drifting in thoughts of situations that could branch out cracks in persistence, determination, and loyalty to our thoughts. The negative perceptions compelled her to flip the coin and explore how they can encourage us to chase our passion. ‘Winning Your Demons’ emphasises on how we tend to get tangled in soul-dampening thoughts, which impacts our emotions and eventually blocks the progress toward success and determination. With this, we often feel scattered mentally and struggle to juggle between too many problems of life. The book encourages readers to find their determination and be persistent to achieve success and progress in their life. It highlights how one can transform their negative emotions into positive ones and channel them to achieve our short and long-term goals. The book delves into the relationship of inner growth of the mind and soul with respect to the outer growth and progress in the world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR :

Without the taste of struggle, success means nothing, says Sonal. She sees herself as a harbinger of tales and poems garnered with hopes, dusted with positivity, and peppered with self-confidence to overcome the emotional lows that life often throws at us. The author of ‘Winning Your Demons,’ and the face of Caroling Pen Publishing, Sonal Srivastava aspires to be a self-made woman and help her readers fight their inner demons. She is a lady with wings that seek untouched heights to attain the depths of her passion and dismisses the bounds of incapabilities. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and worldwide lockdown, she has utilized her time to follow her passion and write poems. The alumnus of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), Dhekanalhas learnt to count the romance of uncertainties and determination as the most certain stepping stone toward progress and success. She believes that words won’t tell a tale unless you want them to. Her ventures to the aisles of soul-lifting tales began when her interest in exploring the thoughts of people and their soul-dampening emotions increased. She would often delve into dynamic conversations with people and her friends about different aspects of their lives, and their perspectives and decisions on complicated situations. Her monotonous routine, the situations of people surrounding her, and her love for Victorian English encourage her to introspect and write. Over three months, she realized that her collection of poems had crossed the target of 60. On sharing some of her poems and thoughts with family and colleagues, she was encouraged to publish a motivating book.
