It gives me great pleasure to announce that my 2nd e-book ‘The Forbidden Love’ is being published by XOXO as part of the Christmas Anthology.
On Christmas day he was to be crowned the King and she was to become a nun. But once their paths cross their lives are changed forever. The picturesque Scottish Castle is on the edge, torn between conflicting loyalties. Love, betrayal, power, religion, friends and foes all play a part in a story that takes the lovers on the brink. Will the love and spirit of Christmas overcome the conventions or become its victim? A heartfelt story of the star-crossed lovers.
Story in brief
The Forbidden Love is a Christmas story set in Scottish Highlands in the middle ages. It is the tale of a Prince, who falls in love with a Italian choir singer who is to be initiated into nun-hood. The Priest heading the monastery cannot allow a nun to elope with the Prince and forces the young man to choose between the crown and love.
Characters like the Jester, a beggar woman who loves the Prince as his son and the picturesque Castle, Gypsy fete add color to the story.

I’m also familiar with that era via bollywood movies etc…so was magic prevalent in that era? And I would definitely love to read THE TATTOO ANTHOLOGY.

Gina is the godmother for many of us. I understand. You are right about the paranormal activity being too confined to the US and Canada. Even a recent movie (I don’t recall the title) parodied the “fact” the UFOs always land in the US. I like your concept.

Vickram this series sounds scary and lush, and very interesting.

Enjoyed reading the comments. I am always looking for new authors to read. Your book sounds interesting. Of course, here in the Phoenix area we have seen many lights that are flying over and are unexpained.

interesting blog, vikram. a fun read. the “x-files from british india” is a novel concept. every culture has their own “monsters and goblins” and it’s nice to escape the mundane frankenstiens and werewolves once in a while. good luck with all your projects.

great blog, vikram. and you’re so correct–every culture has their own “frankenstiens and werewolves and things that go bump in the dark.” it’s always intersting to read and experience someone else’s monsters and goblins every once in awhile.

Wow, this sounds interesting. I am use to historicals and to paranormals, but not to both together (at least not often). And I can’t recall any outside of English speaking countries. I’m sure they are out there, I just haven’t come across them. Thanks for the contest!
Good luck with your Christmas Anthology!

Wow, I’m hooked. I love that you’re taking paranormal out of the Western, urban limits… I wish more authors realized the world is a big place. Only thing that’d make it better is if at least one of your main characters was someone Indian. Books can only get more interesting with diversity. But thanks for a step in that direction. Good luck!

Great concept…setting a paranormal in a different place than we usually read…and taking it back in time makes it more intriguing. No modernization, now-known facts to use. Good luck with this books!
