JAMMU: Quleen Kaur Bijral from the very soil of Jammu & Kashmir and an alumnus of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University has successfully inaugurated her first novel titled “The Witch Some Witch” published by the reputed Partridge Publishing, a Penguin Company.
In the novel the author pours forth an unforgiving story of the voiceless while reaching after the suspenseful depths of a beautiful brave world. What is the message of the work – attack apathy and instill the need for awareness. As without it, anyone can turn us into a scapegoat, a victim and even a slave!
“The novel as a witty prose of memory, revenge, love and crime is a chilling story about a murder in self-defense, dishonour of a hapless girl, a town reeling from riots and a forced sacrifice for a witch,” the author tells.
The fantasy/horror novel is now available online on Amazon.in
An excerpt from the book:
The witch. Some witch. I wanted her to be fiery like some mighty deity. I wanted her to be evil like a sinful siren. I wanted her to titillate me, incite fear, mystery and alarm. I didn't want her to be human.
