Breaking Free

Hello! Here’s wishing you and your loved ones a safe, healthy, happy and prosperous Diwali. In case you hadn’t noticed, I have been off posting on my blog for quite a while now. Although I have been posting on the Pages section (which for some strange reason doesnt lead to a notification to blog followers – sigh). Anyway, coming back to the point, I utilized the extra time on my hands during the lockdown to compile my (choice) of the better short stories into a book. This is out in virtual stores now (links below). A fair warning though, these stories have been published on my blog and if you have been following my stories, you can safely skip this book. But then you would never know what you missed. 😉

Or you could share with your friends and family.

I know it’s a long shot but then nothing ventured, nothing gained, so here goes:

If perchance, you do purchase the book, read it and like it, I would very much appreciate if you could leave your comments on Amazon/Flipkart/Goodreads or wherever you are comfortable.

And the good news is that it is free on Kindle Unlimited!


Oh and yes, while the world’s population has been advised to mask up, I have opted to break free of my self-imposed anonymity and unmask myself, albeit in the virtual world.

That name on the book cover is my given name. 🙂

  1. Dr. Dahlia, 

    I am so happy to see you ‘breaking free’ and blessing our world with your words. We need stories. Now more than ever and yours is a brand that’s truly magic. Excited to dive in to enjoy old favourites and discover new ones. 

    Here’s to unmasking. Wishing you lots of love and success! 🥂

  2. Dear Dahlia,
    I was in a hurry to read the chapter and post my comment before finishing the day yesterday, so, did not pay attention to the book cover. Thanks to Raven, I looked closely at the right page. You are such an accomplished and down to earth person and I am so happy to be able to interact with you.
    Now I know why Guddu’s visit is special. 🙂
    Enjoy Diwali and launch of your book.
    I don’t know whether it is feasible or not, but, did you think of e-book format?
    I know many of us are already spending more than half of our awake time in front of the screens (big and small) and we need to break free from that habit, but, it is the same reason, why an e-book will help.
    All the very best to you.

  3. Ok! I was under the impression that I need kindle device to read books released in kindle version. Now I found I can read them on Kobo which I have already downloaded. Thank you! I learnt something new today.

  4. Congrats Dahlia on your book! Even if it is a compilation of blog posts, it is still a book and lots of effort has gone into it. So lovely of you to unmask yourself and reveal who you are – what a unique name you have, so special 😊 I was thinking about you the other day and where you been, and good to hear you are doing well. Time for you to celebrate with burger and fries 🍟🍔😀

    1. Thank you Anamika! I guess you would have received a notification about this particular Post? The thing is that I am currently posting Pages under SS. And for some strange reason, WordPress doesn’t send notifications for Pages. If you wish to be informed about SS updates please follow on Twitter. Or you could send me an email to add you to the mailing list


  8. I have loved what you written always, but reading in hard cover is different, I loved the first story it makes have goosebumps literally at places. I LOVE the way you write because your characters begin to speak to me even when I am off the book….I am still reading though will come for a feedback after I am done….but i will definitely recommend having this in all book loving shelves….its worth the buy….
