Finalist of the Amazon Pen To Publish Contest 2017

Pankaj Giri was born and brought up in Gangtok, Sikkim—a picturesque hill station in India. He began his writing career in 2015 by co-authoring a book—Friendship Love and Killer Escapades (FLAKE). Learning from experience and the constructive criticism that he got for his first book, he has now written a new novel—The Fragile Thread of Hope, a mainstream literary fiction dealing with love, loss, and family relationships. He is currently working in the government sector in Sikkim. He likes to kill time by listening to progressive metal music and watching cricket.

That's a great idea actually. I'll give it a thought, but right now I'm so busy editing my second book that I won't have time to concentrate on it fully, so I wouldn't be able to do justice to it. But yes, maybe after a few months when I'll be a bit free, that would be a good idea. There are no such pages, and once it becomes a bit popular, maybe we can catch hold of someone to sponsor it, too (for Facebook ads). But still I think by sharing and inviting friends and fans, it should be able to gather a small yet good following. What about you? Are you active on FB? (less)
Pankaj Giri Yeah, sure. Your book looks intriguing. How should we go about it? Please message me.. Let's discuss. :)

I came across this book while browsing the bookshelves of Rachna Books, our local award-winning bookstore. Raman sir, the owner, personally recommended it to me and informed me that the author was the co-director of the Jaipur Literature Festival, whom he had had the fortune of meeting recently. I was intrigued, and it convinced me to try the book out.

Wow, thanks a ton for this message. It was a pleasant surprise. It's my pleasure. I'm always there to help, and you are so very kind yourself, helping me by suggesting editor friends, choosing my book titles even when you are busy with your manuscript, and what not. Thank you so so much for your encouragement and prayers for my second book. That's the least we can do as first time writers - support each other. All the very best for your book. Hope you catch an agent soon and give me the good news. I'd love to see your book coming out soon. :)
