Soulmate by Beenu Venugopal is a page turner story that helps people find Inner Peace

Looking back, for the first time- Yes!; there are so many things I can take as ammunitions for my future endeavours.

So the first takeaway would be, “Maintain a balance between the...

Keep losing fans and you will not have a writing career, you will have a hobby. Take a hard look at your WIP (work in progress). Here are four areas where your story might be lagging...
