And some BURN-ing news
I’m listening to Silent Lucidity by Queensryche as I write this edition of The Writer Gal Letter. I am on a Supernatural-watching kick because I missed Sam and Dean and their dysfunctional brothers’ dynamic (which might be making its way into burn!). Without further ado, let’s jump into the newsy letter, shall we?
Question of the Day
You all know where I live. In my head, dreaming up the most delicious stories for you, of course. But also in Mumbai, India. The city that DOES not sleep (it didn’t sleep during lockdown) and I don’t know where you are from? In my heart, I think we all wander the same, vast, golden library (sort of like the Hogwarts Dining Hall but with books) picking out juicy reads and stories to escape into.
But I’d love to know a little bit about you and where are you from? Who knows, your hometown/city/commune might make it into of my stories, that need ever more fresh settings the more I write!
Release Announcement - Stand For Ukraine
Postmate, this is an important anthology. Not just because of the cause we are working for but because of the sheer scope and depth of the stories that have come up. FROM 100+ Authors including me, Aarti V Raman!
Hit that Shiny pink button and support this work and read about 400 stories/poems across the spectrum of romance and women’s fiction in Stand for Ukraine.

Across the globe, authors have come together to provide stories filled with hope, heart. and understanding, inspired by the events of February 2022.

An appeal: I sent the last edition of TWGL too quickly without adding this request. I’d love to have ARC readers who would read my two shorts - Sunflowers (A Poem) and When Suraj Met Sia! Please hit the shiny pink button if you want to be part of this special ARC team (and my actual ARC team). Reading time will be anywhere between 15 mins - 45 mins because this is a 5000-word short story and a small poem.

Upcoming Release Announcement 2 - Wealthy Gods (A Series Starter Collection)
Phew! That is a mouthful, isn’t it? After 30 books across five series, I decided it’s time to bring the whole Aarti V Raman Universe of Awesome Heroes and Awesomer Heroines under a single roof or, to be more accurate, a single book. And so, for the first time ever I am releasing a first in series boxset collection of ALL five series - Filthy Rich Geeks, Millionaire Foes, Ruthless Billionaires, Those Dangerous Royals, AND Her Mercenary Protector!
So, this is the perfect starter course for any of you Postmates and your avid reader friends who are yet to read through all of the many books I have let out into the world :D
As always, this book will be available in Kindle Unlimited.
Here’s Wealthy Gods’ cover to make sure I have your attention!
General Release Updates
I’ve already shared a few of these updates sporadically on social media but here we go again!
I’m currently working on three deadlines - BURN, the audiobook original, and SCORE which can only be described as the bastard child of a crime thriller and a romantic sports comedy so release dates are going to change just a bit to accommodate all the fresh release!
Chaos and Renegade are my April paperback releases! So watch out for more news on both in future editions of TWGL.
Renaming Books For Clarity
Bastard Billionaires were renamed Ruthless Billionaires for Amazon purposes.
Claim is Book 1 (a thicc book) in the Ruthless Billionaires series. The next few releases this year are all from this series or connected to this series.
BURN is Book 2 of Ruthless Billionaires.
Lena and Shane have been slotted with Xander and Sasha as Those Dangerous Royals and are now books 2 and 1 of the royal military romance trilogy - Chaos and Renegade, respectively. Michael and Daria are the last couple and I will be writing their story as soon as I’m done with the other deadlines!
A BURN-ing Announcement
Since I’m fortunate enough to partner with my print publisher Notion Press and they have agreed to release Burn as a simultaneous paperback, the thicc book of 100K+ words will now be split into TWO books, BURN and BLAZE! The story remains the EXACT same with a tiny cliffhanger to keep things interesting and I’ll be releasing them within days of each other.
BECAUSE the story has to be tweaked just a bit to accommodate print demands and I am in deadline heaven, BURN’s release has been pushed by a few weeks. But I have lots more Nihaal-Mili and the Bhatnagar clan drama to keep you occupied till then!
ALSO: I *might* have bastardized the lean and rangy Rege Jean-Page who was always Nihaal with Tom Hardy from Taboo! THOSE TATTOOS and the way he says “hmmm” straight-up melted my brain, Postmate. And I guarantee you, if mine brain is melted, your Kindle will for sure melt with the twisted deviance and smexy times between Nihaal and Mili!
Watching Recs: For the People by Shonda Rhimes and Taboo by Tom Hardy, Steve Deknight, and Chips Hardy. If you want to see the real-life fictional muses that I’m currently obsessed with.
Writer Gal’s Writer Pal’s Present
This edition of the TWGL has an awesome new pre-order from one of the Filthy Rich Billionaires author, Felicity Brandon. Check out her dark romance here. If that cover doesn’t scream dark and depraved and awesome….
Dirty Vengeance, the second to last hot AF mafia romance by Zoe Beth Geller is here. And Massimo is HOT HOT HOT!
Last but never least, the prolific Sofia Aves has a new cowboy romance out in Kindle Unlimited. For those of you who have yet to read Sofia, you’re in for a real treat. Cuz she is incredibly talented. And I know this because Sofia is one of the reasons I joined Stand for Ukraine. :)
That is it for this edition of The Writer Gal Letter and me. I’ll be back *very soon* with an exciting event and more newsy, juicy updates!
Till then, stay safe and awesome
