AtoZ 2020 – Theme Reveal

I have a love-hate relationship with the AtoZ challenge. In 2018, I participated for the first time, wrote a bunch of short stories that were well-received, and even published a selection from them as an ebook. (If you want to check it out, please click here.)

In 2019, I decided to write a series of stories about a theme that was (still is) close to my heart – The Vanarapuri Tales. Few people loved them, but unfortunately, I had a lot of people who weren’t interested in my stories but rather left a generic comment in order to get me to visit their blogs. Disheartened, I quit the challenge after H.

I was quite reluctant about returning for this year’s challenge but took the decision to take the plunge due to the recent story I wrote. My horror story ‘Old Macdonald Had A Farm’ was published as a part of a horror anthology called ‘Route 13 : Highway to Hell‘ and hit #1 in Kindle Hot Releases and #2 in Kindle Horror.

As a result, I decided to write a series in the same genre – Horror. My AtoZ posts of 2020 will feature 26 pieces of flash fiction (less than 200 words) featuring monsters and evil spirits from Indian mythology and folklore. Join me from April 1st onwards to read and enjoy my stories and also get an introduction to a taste of horror from a culture you might not have been exposed to.

See you on the 1st. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m sorry to hear about last year experience. But I’m gland you’re not discouraged to the point to skip the challenge. You know, there are themes that are more popular and theme that are less popular. Sometimes it depends on how we offer our posts.
    But all in all, I think the challenge is a great ground of experimentations. It gives us the opportunity to see what really works and what doesn’t.

    I’m always up for a fiction AtoZ challenge!
