Cheer up fiction followers! There is something novel and exciting coming up your way. James Patterson, the world’s leading and highest paid thriller writer is all set to join hands with Ashwin Sanghi, the young India’s fiction idol. The hurtling plot construction and terrific suspense mixing skills of James Patterson, and well delved into and spellbinding writing talent of Ashwin Sanghi can be seen in the new acquisition of Random House India and Cornerstone, a working division Random House UK.
According to Susan Sandon, MD for Cornerstone, Random House UK has acquired the rights of publishing the world’s bestselling Private Series under the name of Private India. The byproduct of this teamwork will be a part Patterson’s popular ‘Private’ series of fiction and will be available in the racks by February 2014.
Speaking in respect to this literary collaboration, Patterson quoted:
“Writing my Private series of books has given me the opportunity to work with local authors on thrillers set all over the world. With its vibrant and chaotic cities, rich history and heritage, there could be no better place to set the Private’s next adventure than India. And with Ashwin Sanghi, with his wide historical knowledge and his love for a fast-paced plot, there could no better partner. I look forward to working with him to create a unique, Indian-based adventure.”
And Ashwin Sanghi, who is far more excited about this venture, said:
“I see it as an opportunity for me to hone my skills in a slightly different but immensely exciting genre. I am quite certain that the fusion of ideas from East and West will result in a gripping and engaging read. It is an honor and my privilege to co-write an India-specific thriller with the master storyteller himself, who has sold more books than any other author round the world in the past three years.”
Well, let’s hope this alliance turns out to be an international success and a charm for the fiction fans.
