"Life Under Microscope" featured in Half Baked Beans "Tuesday Tales" series

During my early teen years, inspired by the many Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy stories that I read, I spun my own tales of a detective girl who helped her father in investigating crimes. And enthusiastically I sent them to all teen magazines which accepted stories from its readers. But after a couple of months of anxious waiting, I realized that my stories would never be published. Dejected and disappointed, I gave up writing for almost a decade.

But today the Indian Literary scene is completely different with so many young writers getting a chance to become published authors.  And encouraging nascent writers are many publishing houses who are providing an opportunity to these young writers.

Half Baked Beans is one such publishing house which provides a literary platform for all budding and aspiring writers to get their work published.

Half Baked Beans Publishing, founded in January, 2013, is India's youngest independent publisher of commercial fiction and non-fiction paperbacks and e-books. 

Their mission is to provide new and upcoming writers a similar platform as that of established writers and give the readers good books and wholesome satisfaction at affordable prices. They accept work in all genres including Fiction, Non Fiction, Autobiography, Children, Romance, Short Stories, Thrillers. 

And the good news is that they are accepting manuscripts, so if you are an author with a chartbuster novel waiting to get published, then you can send it to- publish.halfbakedbeans@gmail.com

They also have a FB page where they run features every weekday, for example- "Monday Muses" in which they talk about a female Indian author and they have already showcased Nikita Singh (bestselling author of popular names like Love@ Facebook, Accidently in Love, If It's Not Forever! It's not love and The Promise), Madhuri Banerjee (author of popular names like Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas and Mistakes like love and sex.) and more recently Meenakshi Reddy Madhavan ( author of 'You Are Here' and 'Confessions Of A Listmaniac: The Life And Times Of Layla The Ordinary'.).

So it’s my complete honor when they decided to start their new series “Tuesday Tales” with my blog- Life Under Microscope. “Tuesday Tales” series would be promoting a short story blog every Tuesday and this provides a wonderful opportunity to bloggers who write fiction to get visibility.

With such encouragement and support from publishers, I’m sure more youngsters would be inspired to read and write often. Thank you Half Baked Beans.
