About The Book
"While working under a stern publisher who dealt with his staff like a military commander, the protagonist said something to the publisher that made him start sweating in the month of December. What did he say? What did the astrologer who claimed to have served under Subhash Chandra Bose in the INA and predicted the time of death of some Indian political leaders, reveal to the protagonist? The unseen and unknown remote employers connected to the protagonist through the Internet make the protagonist wonder if he is living in an Orwellian 1984 or The Brave New World of Huxley! Is it too late when the protagonist discovers he is working for a Pakistani company? Does the protagonist eventually catch up with Melissa, a fly-by-night, faceless, remote employer? The publishing world is changing rapidly today, when everyone is a writer and reader alike, and getting published can be a cakewalk. Read on"
About The Author
"Ajit Kumar Jha studied Philosophy at St Stephen's College, Delhi, and Sociology at the Delhi School of Economics, Delhi University.Currently, he writes in diverse genres for various clients and also writes independently on different web platforms.In the process of building his career, he claims to have learned at least two valuable lessons. First, it is not for your personal satisfaction alone that you write, rather you write for others, pretty much like any other professional who works for others.The second important lesson for the author is the importance of a unique way of telling a story.Ajit Kumar Jha lives in Delhi along with wife and two kids. He is most likely to be spotted in his chair fiddling with the keyboard nearly any time of the day or night, seven days a week unless his wife drags him to some silly family or social function, literally by his collar.He subscribes to the Buddhist philosophy of silence and the Gandhian philosophy of passive resistance because he found that after wasting all their energy in shouting and in theatrics, the opponents are left drop-dead exhausted, while you remain energetically smiling to your glory."

[Note: I won this book in GoodReads Giveaway and this is my honest review ] This is a great book. The book is about how the online, off line publishing world works. It's portrays author's journey from a school boy to college and working as a writer and finally he writes this book and shares his story with the world. The story is funny and the narration is witty and at times hilarious. The beginning of the book is a bit slow but it picks up the pace and becomes interesting. After college, the author moves from one job to another, all jobs were related to writing, and a small funny story is born every time. While discussing online publishing, The author shares some mails which he sent to some of the online employers to get his dues back. I found these emails full of wisdom. this is where the author has made good use of his understanding of human psychology. I enjoyed this read. there were occasion when I could not stop laughing my heart out. I rate this book 5/5
