BLOG BOOK front

A STUNNING debut book of poetry and prose published two weeks ago is now finding its way back home to a small hill fort town in the Himalayas.

Don’t Look Down by first-time author Ritambhara Chowfin was penned in the town of Almora in the Himalayan foothills of northern India.

But it was edited and published in England and printed in Poland!

Now the first few copies are finding their way back to Almora’s two public libraries and the town’s English speaking journal The Uttaranchal Deep Newspaper.

Don’t Look Down was first published on 6th October in both paperback and e-book and with burgeoning worldwide sales the first press release has been read by more than 10,000 people in places as diverse as Canada, Germany, the UAE, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, the Netherlands and the USA, as well as hundreds more the UK and India.

Ritambhara is a 25-year-old graduate in English Language and Literature from Amity University in Delhi. She is the eldest of three siblings and returned to her home town for the inspiration to write about the world she knows.

Ritambhara says she is overwhelmed by the “amazing and lovely reaction to my book.”

“Although Hindi is my first language, I love English and the UK,” she adds. “The whole process of writing and watching my book being published has been a total joy.

“And now the reaction from friends, family and even former teachers has taken my breath away.”

Editor and publisher Nic Outterside, who owns the publishing house Time is an Ocean says: “Working with Ritambhara has been an utter pleasure.

“I am very proud of this book, and of her. The worldwide reaction to her book has been amazing.”

Don’t Look Down is available in paperback priced at £4.99 (US $6.15) from most Amazon portals
