Honorary Blogger Sid Love: Happiness Is Being Lost In A Book! + Giveaway!


Happiness Is Being Lost In A Book!

by Sid Love

Before being an author, I am a reader – an avid one. Books are my life! Even when my weekdays are spent with thirteen to fourteen hours at work, you’ll always find a book in my bag that I read while travelling. My one-way trip to work is usually about a couple of hours long! So plenty of time to read 😉

This is the only me time I get and dare anyone steal it from me!

I read almost all genres – ranging from Old Classics to Mystery to even Sci-Fi and Fantasy fictions. (I can never digest an auto-biography though. It gives me migraine, just looking at its cover!) But if you ever ask me, what genre would I prefer to read any day, any time – I’ll say it’s Romance.

No doubt!

imagesOLZUND91And my inspiration to write in this genre comes especially from the Classic Romance novels written by Jane Austen. She is like an idol I’d praise for eternity. Seriously! I like her works that much. I am ashamed to admit though that I took about a month to finish Pride and Prejudice (that one was the first I read from her) but initially I thought the long descriptive passages were boring indeed! It’s not for everyone, I tell you but by the end of the story you feel like you have read a novel that will stay in your memory forever! A novel that you’d re-read a million times!

So far I’ve read P&P, Persuasion and Sense & Sensibility more than twice. And Emma is my all-time favorite! It’s just something about the main character that draws me in. Her being so imperfect in itself makes her flawless – if that even makes sense. Ha!

These stories make me want to write that same epic romance with two men in the equation! I want my readers to experience the kind of goose bumps I get every time I think about the letter written by Captain Wentworth and his words – “You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever…”

I can never be as good as Ms. Austen; that I am well aware of. However, I can at least try to honor her through my stories.

My newest release Let It Go is just the beginning.


About Let It Go

let-it-go-cover2“Everyone tells me to stay away from him. But if only I knew how to resist him…”

Goa isn’t supposed to be on Damon O’Neil’s list of places to stay while working in India. It’s merely a substitute for his planned trip to visit his sister in Paris for Christmas and the New Year. His boss had other ideas. He’s sent Damon to carry out urgent upgrades to the company’s offshore units and Damon can’t say no.

When Damon encounters an extra-spicy curry, a handsome Indian guy named Virat comes to his rescue. Damon is instantly smitten with his looks, and especially with his cute smile. But Damon soon realizes he is very much out of his league when Virat introduces his new wife.

However, there might just be a chance Virat isn’t all he pretends to be …

    That’s a long commute you have! Good think you love to read. 🙂 I am a big Jane Austen fan, too. I’ve read all her books and some of them multiple times. Thanks for the post and contest.

  2. Serena S.

    Great post! A few months ago i bought Emma for my birthday 😛 , I love that book but I think Pride & Prejudice will always be my favourite one.
    Congrats on the new release and thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  3. Shirley Ann Speakman

    I liked Pride and Prejudice it has such a great take on the whole manners and behaviour of the characters of that time. Please count me in for the Giveaway.

    I read Emma when I was, oh, maybe 13 or so. And I hated it. LOL. I’m pretty sure I’d like it much more now, as I’ve certainly developed patience! There’s something to that slow build can be very satisfying. However, first I need to get over my initial reaction to thinking about it before I give it another go.

  5. please count me in

  6. H.B.

    Congrats on your new book! Thank you for the giveaway =)

  7. Congratulations on your new release! Please count me in for the giveaway!

  8. 19th century English lit is a special love of mine. Austen and the Bronte sisters are my particular favorites (except Wuthering Heights, which makes me an oddball, I know. Agnes Grey & Tenant of Wildfell Hall are worlds better, IMHO). Thanks for sharing your perspective, and for the giveaway. Best of luck with the new release!

  9. Persuasion is probably one of my favourite Jane Austin books, well I like them all, and I love extract from Captain Wentworth letter to Anne, a letter of hope that they can be together after all her families and friends interference.

    Thank you for this giveaway and a chance to win a copy of this book.
