New Delhi: Srishti Publishers and Distributors, one of India’s leading publishing houses for mass-market paperback fiction, has announced the acquisition rights of two forthcoming literary ventures of Pune-based best-selling author Ajay Pandey. While broadening Srishti’s hugely successful portfolio in contemporary romance category, the collaboration is also set to cement the software professional and author’s reputation as one of the most popular writers in the genre in the country.
Replete with Pandey’s simple yet profound and poignant prose, the novels – ‘A Girl to Remember’ and another untitled work co-authored with novelist Priyanka Lal will focus on the personal journey of the protagonists as they navigate complex choices and challenges in their love lives.
This is the third association between Srishti Publishers and Ajay Pandey. The publishing house had launched the author’s debut work ‘You Are The Best Wife’ in 2015, a deeply affecting autobiographical work chronicling the author’s reconciliation with the loss of his wife after a loving courtship of ten years. The book catapulted to Neilson’s top 5 list for 2015, outselling publishing phenomenon like J.K. Rowling and Devdutt Patnaik. Readers also warmly welcomed his second work and first fiction attempt ‘Her Last Wish’, also published by Srishti.
“Ajay Pandey has stirred the minds and hearts of many readers across the country. His heart-touching writing style and mesmerizing storytelling has made him a favourite with many readers. We are delighted to be associated with Ajay for his next ventures,” said Arup Bose, Publisher at Srishti Publishers. “Romance is one of the most popular genres in India and has a wide readership. We see Ajay’s books read and appreciated by people from age groups as diverse as 16 to 65 year old.
Commenting on his association with Srishti, Ajay Pandey said, “I am delighted to work on two more books with Srishti. Looking forward to work on more exciting projects in days to come. Srishti was my debut platform and they have helped me grow in the past years from a new author to a more matured writer”
