Time for some shameless self-promotion. Oops!! I meant book promotion.
Leadstart, the publisher of my book “What happens in office, stays in office” (image in the margin on the right) has launched its own website for selling books. My book is available for Rs. 136.50 (30% less) with no delivery charge, till 28th Feb. In case you are buying, use Promo code: LPWHIOSIO1. Use link: http://www.leadstartshop.com/Products/Lead-Publishing-Fiction-Fiction/Leadstart-Publishing-Pvt-Ltd/What-happens-in-office-stays-in-office/pid-2223987.aspx
I guess this will only work for deliveries in India. Also, the Promo code will only work on the publisher’s site to which the above link leads.
Of course the book is also available on Amazon.com in the US, sans the publisher promotion, on: http://www.amazon.com/What-happens-office-stays/dp/9381836493/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1347797270&sr=1-2&keywords=what+happens+in+office%2C+stays
A few weeks back another review of the book was carried by Friday Gurgaon, a popular weekly newspaper in the eponymous town (Gurgaon), that I have not shared earlier on this blog. Here it is, followed by the link to the newspaper’s webpage with the review:

No shameless promotion, Ankur. I learned a lot about your book without having to go to Amazon. It sounds wonderful. It seems to focus on Indian business life–am I correct?
Why is it categorized as ‘contemporary fiction’? And last question–is it available on Amazon Kindle?
Most of the contents of the book is from this blog. If you have read each and every blog post than 80% of the book is covered. You must try his new book Some Method Some Madness, here is the link on amazon, http://www.amazon.com/Some-Method-Madness-Managing-India/dp/1259063852.
If you read each and every post you would have covered about 30% of the book, not 80%. The balance 70% is new content, not published anywhere else.
Thank you for introducing my other book “Some Method Some Madness: Managing BPO in India” here. As the subject is very different, I had not talked about it here. Glad to know that apart from corporate humour, we share another interest.
It is a collection of vignettes (and take-offs) on big corporate life, not necessarily Indian. I have found corporate life to be fairly similar everywhere I have worked, and mostly modelled on the American version.
I would have liked the book to be categorised as “corporate humour” or “business satire” or some such but the publisher’s view was that “contemporary fiction” would be the most appropriate. Being my first book, I did not object too much.
The Kindle version is not yet available. Again, the publisher has said that it will be out in a few weeks, but there is no date yet. If and when it becomes available, i will put it up on my blog.
Thank you for your support.
Publishers are opinionated, aren’t they?
I am learning. Looks like they have their own axes to grind!!
The Amazon Kindle version of the book is now available and can be accessed on:
Hi Ankur, When I received news letter I thought you were promoting your book Some Method Some Madness, been reading your new book for quite sometime now, its good guide for me (I belong to BPO industry).
Thank you. I am glad you find it useful. You might be interested in reading this interview of mine that was carried the the Outsource magazine available on: http://www.outsourcemagazine.co.uk/articles/item/4922-qaa-ankur-mithal
Congratulations Ankur! Fantastic to read the review on FG. Well done and am sure there are many more to come in the future. Take care
Thank you. Appreciate your support.
Ankur follows my blog. I always can count on him for a funny comment. I promoted a book in my classroom 11th grade 33. ears. My efforts were a complete failure. The History of the United States. Very few takers.
