Another moment when the TIME stood still

Previously I had shared my experience of writing for this nation wide contest held by Half Baked Beans here. Today when the book has released, it is giving me jitters as I type this. Jitters because this was the first ever contest I participated in and the first short story ever that I wrote , with the help of a wonderful mentor like Harsh Agrawal.It has been enthralling experience working with all these authors as a team having all the support from Harsh and ofcourse Mr.Chetan Soni of Half Baked Beans.

It is definitely a moment for me when TIME stood still as I held this book in my hands and pinched myself to believe it to be true.

You can buy the book HERE

P.S: Do let me know your feedback on my story The Filch featured therein! Eagerly waiting....

She comes across as someone who would want her writing to be more talked about rather than her. In conversation with her in an attempt to know her in her own words:

Today @Behind the book we have Ms. Bhargavi Balachandran the author of the newly released book The Crossover Year. 


The book’s blurb says:

Her world turns upside down when things go awry and she is faced with the prospect of spending her days watching Tamil serials. She comes up with a five-point plan for reclaiming her life back before she hits the big 30. But things are never as simple as drawing up a flowchart in real life, are they? Especially with a ghastly recession rearing its ugly head. Anu bumbles through the corridors of domesticity and travels on a fun-filled roller coaster ride in a bid to discover her passion in life. Along the way, she meets new people, experiences crazy things and learns some hard lessons in marriage, friendship, parenting and life."

This is the author’s second novel,  the first one was a romance  novella  called Seven Across that came out in 2012 . Let’s get into a conversation with her to know more about her and The Crossover Year.
