#TourKickoff :: Incantation Paradox by Annamaria Bazzi

Magic is an illusion. It doesn’t really exist. Or does it?

A horrible car accident destroys Dolores Reynard’s life. But instead of waking up in a hospital bed, she awakens in a teenager’s body. Soon, she discovers she is at the heart of the murderous mystery surrounding the death of Mona, the young girl whose body she occupies. Caught between an evil greater than she ever imagined and a wizard who heals her tattered heart, she is forced to play a dangerous game of intrigue in the hopes of finding a way to return to her previous life.

Will magic be her ally, or will it lead to her demise once and for all.

Some Fun Facts:

- When behind the veil Dolores' true form materializes, losing Mona's looks.

- When I first wrote the book, I wrote it in first person, but Eric kept calling to me and I had to rewrite it in third person limited just so I could find out who he really was. 

- Through the various drafts, the protagonist changed name from Mara to Dolores.

- In my mind Dolores was going to fall in love with Richard, but she had different plans and fell in love with Jason.

- The original title of the book was Trapped in a Nightmare, but when I googled the title another book had claimed the title so I called the novel Incantation Paradox.

The Real Culprits…

Hello Everyone!

My Name is Debdatta Dasgupta Sahay and I am a Book Addict. I have been diagnosed to be in the critical stage where, I refuse to go out – for anything, especially social gatherings, often miss out on house chores and tend to forget things that do not include my current read. I have also been tagged as a book hoarder who salivates after paperbacks even after owning a Nook and a Kindle Fire. But I am not the only person to be blamed for this status.

The real culprits in this case, who got me addicted, are my parents. As book addicts and book hoarders themselves, they ensured that I was always surrounded by a never ending supply of books. Majority of my ‘surprise’ gifts consisted of books. They even took further steps to ensure that I would become addicted by telling me stories – not the usual fairy tales. My mother often narrated the best historical fictions and detective stories to me as my bed-time story or whenever I gave her trouble during meal times. My father ensured that I knew all about Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes even before I could actually pronounce these names properly. Growing up with four elder brothers at home (we were a joint family) I was a hyperactive child and their solution was to make me sit and read an Enid Blyton or an Agatha Christie or a Satyajit Ray Novel (according to my age at the time). So you see, I never had a chance. When I took my first job for a nominal salary, half of my salary was used in contributing to the family, my personal expenses and savings. The remaining half went into buying booksand my parents encouraged it! 

And few months back, I quit my job in order to be able to read more! People often tell me that I read too much and that I should go out more and mingle more. My only response is ‘Is there something like reading too much?!!’ I wouldn’t know as I always wish for ‘more time’ to read!

Well, now you know my story and know that I am beyond anyone’s help. So, recommend me some books that you have read and enjoyed - of any genre except non-fiction and erotica!

#TourKickoff :: Bootie and the Beast by Falguni Kothari

Fairytales don't end with True Love's Kiss, they begin with one...
Diya Mathur (aka Beauty), celebrated supermodel and Party Princess of India, is adored by everyone. She works hard, plays hard, and has the biggest shoe fetish on the planet. But after she purchases one baby bootie, Diya's reputation is in ruins. There's only one place to escape the rumours - Texas, under the protection of her lifelong friend, and secret love, Krish Menon (aka the Beast).
Financial whizz-kid, CFO and entrepreneur, Krish is a brooding workaholic with a charisma that still brings Beauty Mathur to her knees. He has no idea, of course! They've shared a bond since childhood - a special friendship that thrives on sparring, teasing and goading - but with Diya back in his life and under his roof, Krish's latent desire for her explodes. And when he finally admits to the secret that has never allowed him to commit to any woman - especially Diya - everything changes. Krish might finally realise how much he wants his Beauty. But he won't get her until Diya has tamed her Beast.


Book Links:

Falguni Kothari is a non-traditional homemaker who accidently tripped on a misplaced soccer ball and fell down the writer’s rabbit hole. Having no more experience with the whole writing/publishing shebang than being a voracious reader and movie buff, it more than surprised her that she could, in fact, write a full-length novel. 
Now, several manuscripts down, when she is not trying to find a way out of her many domestic duties or cajoling her Latin dance coach to compose a rumba on Bollywood music, she is found embroiled in some or other scandal—sorry, creating stories—on her ever-faithful laptop.
She’s authored Bootie and the Beast, It’s Your Move, Wordfreak! and Scrabbulous Impressions, a short story. She rumbas across a whole smorgasbord of Social Media daily and loves to connect with most living things.
