Case Closed

One of the most satisfying parts of the writing process is getting a finished manuscript bound. It makes the whole process feel worthwhile! I get mine done in Delhi in leather with gold emboss. The lettering’s stamped by hand and, to be honest, it’s all a bit wonky, but then that’s part of the charm. This is a bound copy of the first draft of ‘The Case of the Love Commandos’ (to be published Oct 2013), corrections and all. Something nice to pass onto the kids. Perhaps between now and then, I’ll get myself a nice old antique glass cabinet to put my growing collection in.

    How exciting to see that another Vish Puri novel is on its way! I’m looking forward to reading it. And I agree – the bound copy is very charming, and a reminder of all the hard work you put in. A nice keepsake.

    I’ll look forward to reading this. I just finished The Case of The Man Who Died Laughing. It is my 2nd Vish Puri book to read, and I just hope you keep going. I found The Case of the Missing Servant by accident in our library looking for fiction set in India. We lived there 8 years, and I miss everything India. These books give me a trip “home” where I can once again taste the curries,hear Hindi, feel the heat, and experience a little of all I miss. I’d be a very willing proofreader for you as I teach ELL, love grammar and spelling and love India.

    Really nice. I may have to get some of my own books (from my library…not one’s that I’ve written) bound like that the next time I’m in Delhi. It would add some class to my collection! Where do you get them bound?

    Hi Tarquin,
    I’m waiting anxiously for the next installment of Vish Puri . . . he is my favorite new detective . . Reminds me a lot of Agatha Christie . . . I have the audiobook versions and love listening to Sam Dastor bring the characters to life.
    Congrats on your success and hoping to spend many hours in the future with a GOOD book.
