  5. Hello!

    You’re an awesome story-teller! The narration is so smooth and free from jargons! A simple story completely justifying the plot! To narrate this sort of crime driven by passion, one has to carefully choose the words without making it look vulgar and you’ve done a fantastic job! Not once did I feel the ‘over-the-rooftop-effect’. Glad to have meandered in! 🙂 As far as I’m concerned, this one is a strong contender and I mean it 🙂 Good luck with BATOM! 🙂

    • Thank you Scribbling Gal. These words of yours on your blog impress me a lot

      Writing is my passion.
      It is my means of expression.
      It is a way to retain sanity.
      And it is the best talent I seem to possess!

    • I am quite a scaredypoke you know … cant watch a horror film – but can’t resist it either. It scares me, repulses me and fascinates me. The day I can write something that makes other people feel like that … I think I’ll have succeeded in writing fiction
