Crowd-curation is a concept where a book is selected for publication based on public reviews. Brutal is India’s first book published through such a process. All this happened on BloodyGoodBook.com, which cultivates an excellent ecosystem of authors and readers.
I had submitted my manuscript on Bloody Good Book’s website for open review by the readers. After many months of garnering praise from the reviewers, it was selected for publication. Hetika Sanghani, a top reviewer at Bloody Good Book, was one of the very first readers to go through my chapters and vote.
After more than a year of her first look at my book (a less finished work then), she got in her hands the finished and much polished version of Brutal, a few days ago. I don’t know how she felt holding a book in her hand which she herself voted for. I am indebted to all such readers whose love and encouragement led to the publication of my book. Thank you, Hetika.
Now, let’s see what she has to say about Brutal on her blog Book Fanatic. “The reason why Brutal is an interesting read is the characters. All the characters are real and have an important role to play in the flow of the storyline. The characters of Seema and Prakash have been drafted immaculately. The way they begin the investigation at different points and how they meet midway and unravel the truth is the USP of this book. This has been drafted to perfection and leaves you stunned.”
