    If the insatiable urge to tell a story and to tell it really well keeps you awake in the dead of night, then you have reached the right place (my humble opinion). One can trust the Booksoarus team to help in getting the ‘idea’ out to its logical conclusion, in a much better shape and perhaps most important, in a timely manner. What Lavanya did best to me was to challenge to rise to the world of fresh writing; almost free from clichés, urging to bring the best out. Her discerning eyes and professional expertise with an almost down-to-earth attitude can make all the difference for new writing souls. And then the sheer joy of having published authors coming on board as ‘mentor’ is just exhilarating (unheard on this side of atlantic till now). In my personal opinion, the team, with a non-commercial perspective, is out there to help people in bringing out the story they feverishly wish to tell. The mentoring package has helped me in identifying major/minor flaws with my plot, people, pace etc. and suggested ways to improve through lots of suggestions as well as asking uncomfortable questions that need introspection at a granular level, keeping the reader FIRST. I would strongly urge any one serious about writing to benefit from the beautiful synergy that follows. Happy writing….as the mails to me end with 🙂

    Hi Lavanya,
    You edited my book. Now it is printed and out on shopping sites. The book is doing well.
    The name of the book is The Claim, if your remember it is about an insurance claim.
    I have mentioned about you in the acknowledgement page.
    The book is doing well.
    I lost your phone number and e-mail id due to some reasons.
    Would like to reconnect.
    Regards,
    Sanjay Bordia
