The New Fiction Technologies Book Description:

The Internet has fundamentally altered our perceptions of narrative and its core components, including authorship, setting, characterization, reader reception and more. With new trends, tropes and conventions emerging at the speed of cyberspace, digital media like web comics, video games and fan fiction have become laboratories for experimentation on the boundaries of contemporary storytelling. While web comics, video games and fan fiction have received much scholarly study, this book focuses on the common ground they share, and how their processes, motivations and evolution may be more similar than we think. These media are all regarded as unique genres of digital fiction, and this book aims to bridge the gap between them. Understanding these phenomena as expressions of the same principles could be crucial to understanding the future of narrative storytelling.

The Vegetarian recipes in this cookery book are a legacy from my elders in the family. Which I would like to pass on, before they get extinct or labeled as lost recipes. Well today there are so many recipes and professional cooks available, but they lack the taste of your Mom’s food which you crave for. This mostly happens when you get married or living away from home. All recipes in this collection have been kitchen tested and relished since ages. They are nutritious, delicious and highly complimented by friends, colleagues and relatives. These recipes are focused on the food of our childhood, food of our parent’s childhood and their parents’ childhoods and some of my personal addition.

Between Ink and Shadows Book Description:

She’ll win back her freedom, even if she has to steal it. Nimona Weston has a debt to pay. Her father’s dealings with the dark society known as the Trust cost Nim her freedom. There’s one way out of the contract on her life and that’s to bide her time and pay magic's tithes. But when the Trust assigns Nim to a task in the king’s own castle, her freedom is not the only thing she’ll risk. Warrick Spenser has a secret. As king’s seneschal, he should be the last soul in Inara to risk association with dark magic, but long-hidden ties to the Trust are harder to shed than simply cutting the threads. When the Trust sends a thief to his rooms, Warrick thinks he’s finally found a way to be rid of them for good. But Nimona Weston is hiding secrets of her own. Magical contracts, blood-debt accountants, and a deadly game. An epic fantasy with regency flair, an improper and slightly stabby heroine with a penchant for trouble, clean, slow burn romance, and a dark and twisty plot that pits magic against kings, love against power, and a gothic underworld against a kingdom desperate to survive. Perfect for fans of Sorcery of Thorns and The Shadows Between Us. This three book set includes Between Ink and Shadows, Before Crown and Kingdom, and Beneath Stone and Sacrifice.
