About

Gaurav (myself) is the name behind TheWordBookie. I am a commerce graduate and, work as a freelance writer and now a BLOGGER. Writing, reading and clicking entice me  more than fiddling with third party account books. The idea to start a book blog came as an inspiration from a couple of blogs that I preferred to read. I thought this would probably be the best way of sharing some BOOKish knowledge with others. You must be wondering why THEWORDBOOKIE. What is so unique about the name or what is the thought behind it? The truth is I didn’t give over a minute to decide the name. I just wanted a name that has an appeal and can be distinguished from the others.

The blogging community is an ocean of knowledge related to almost everything. I aim at learning more about the book world and spreading the knowledge over to the readers. I would love to recommend and review books, share the latest news, new releases, press events and just everything about books. Remember, its not just a hobby. It is a modern day Library. So, delve further into the blog, share it and keep visiting. Happy Reading!!

  1. Hi Gaurav

    I’ve been looking around your blog and it looks like you have some well written book reviews. I’m currently looking for people to review my serial novel, Dosterra, and wondered if you would be willing. It is a dystopian, sci fi, adventure story being published by chapter on a relatively new serial fiction site called JukePop Serials. The accompanying blurb is:

    “Dosterra is a wintry mining planet. With a monopoly on natural resources and transition technology, it is the undisputed leader of the Earth Origin Colonies. But Lexie has stumbled across something that threatens their dominance. What if their power was built on a lie? On the run, she’s forced to seek the help of Iden, a scientist with the Transition Regulation Centre, though his motives for helping her are unclear.”

    I’m not sure if it falls into one of your favorite genres, but I’m hoping you’ll be receptive. It would be a fairly quick read because only six chapters have been published so far (basically I’m still in the intro of the overall story arc). If you decide to do a review for me, I am more than willing to reciprocate by doing a post about your blog on mine, or something along those lines.

    My main reasons for seeking reviews are: 1) This is my first novel—to date I’ve been more of a short story writer—and good feedback is hard to find. Even if the reviews I get are not raves, I’m hoping they will help me continue to improve as the novel progresses. 2) As any author would be, I’m hoping to give my work some visibility.

    If you are interested, you can see chapter one here: http://www.jukepopserials.com/home/read/111

    If at that point you want to continue, there are two options. First, you could actually sign up for the site, which is free. You simply click ‘register’ in the upper-right corner, give an email address, make up a password, and you’re in. The benefit to this would be that you could vote for my story as you read, and also the site has lots of great stories from many genres that might interest you, or give you something else to post about in the realm of ‘bookish knowledge’.

    If, however, you don’t want to take part in the voting, that option can be turned off. Or if you simply don’t like the idea of signing up for JukePop, I understand and I’m willing to send you a PDF or epub instead. Though I’d appreciate it if the final review included the link above.

    Responding via wordpress or email is fine. Hope to hear from you. Thanks,

    • Hey Estak
      I am glad you liked my reviews. Yes, I will surely go through your literary work. But it will take me some time, as you see I am not a regular blogger. So, please co-operate that much.

      Thanks

      • Not a problem, get to it when you can. It’s an on going projects and I’ll be continuing to add chapters in the meantime. Thanks for adding me to your to-do list, I really appreciate it.
