Greetings from The Book Club.
Thank you, Varsha Dixit, for giving us this space on your site. It’s a great opportunity for us to reach out to new readers and invite them to join our #TornadoGiveaway.
What is Tornado Giveaway?
The Tornado Giveaway is exactly as the name suggests. A Global giveaway of books from authors across the globe. Every year we invite authors from across the globe to be part of our annual giveaway. You can see our #TornadoGiveaway from the last two years.

There are many bloggers who are involved while this takes place. Some are members of The Book Club and some join us only during this time. They tweet and spread the word across the social media. It’s a free promotion that helps the readers and the writers to connect. Especially new and upcoming writers.
And thankfully every year we are not alone. Some of the wonderful people out there jump on board to help us spread the word.
We have few organizations joining us as our co-hosts during this time.
Wrimo India: Wrimo India, founded by Sonia Rao, the NaNoWriMo ML for India, is a safe space for a community of writers called wrimos and this is where they encourage and motivate each other to hone their writing craft through discussions and by providing critiques.
For Writers, By Authors: An awesome forum/group pioneered by Neil D’Silva, a famed writer himself. The main motive behind this group of almost 17k members are:
(1) To help budding writers with resources that can hone their writing skills and help them get published, and
(2) To help authors to promote their work and find their readership.
Mumbai Mom – Mumbai Mom, founded by entrepreneur and writer Nidhi D. Bruce, aims to be the go-to infotainment portal for a discerning audience consisting of parents who seek information that would not only add value to their parenting but also to them as the ‘Person behind the Parent.’ Mumbai Mom endeavors to do this through both online and offline events and beautiful, interesting, entertaining and well-written articles on their website.
Tell-A-Tale – India's first platform dedicated exclusively to the #Storytelling ecosystem. A melting pot for stories, storytellers and the art of storytelling. They started with a beautiful thought by their creator Arunima Shekhar.
Who we are and what do we do at The Book Club?
We are a group of voracious readers and passionate writers for whom writing and reading are like water in a parched desert. This line itself should tell you how dramatic we are. Hhahaa. We love books and we want the whole world to know that. We gather reviews for authors and see to it that names which were not known much in the literary circle gets noticed and meets their viewership. The web of social media is our playground and we are very rough players there :D. [Imagine that I am saying that with a western twang]
I do hope that if you are reading this, and if you are a reader or writer, you will join our endeavor. The Book Club welcomes all readers and writers in their group.
Once again Varsha, thank you so much for this space.
