Laxmi Hariharan writes kick-ass dystopian YA novels set in Bombay. I can’t wait for her new book, The First Life of Vikram Roy, the latest in the award-winning Ruby Iyer series, to come out on 20th October. In the meantime, here’s a guest post from her about the book and her commitment to supporting Syrian refugee children.
About The First Life of Vikram Roy (Ruby Iyer Series)
Vikram never should have left his family, but when Vikram’s father brings his half-brother Vishal home, life will never be the same.
Vikram thinks things will be better now that he’s gone. He’s met the love of his life, his future looks bright and then everything is shattered.
Now, his family’s life is hanging in the balance, and only Vikram can do what needs to be done to save them.
From the bestselling dystopian fiction author with over 200 reviews and ratings of her dystopia books across Goodreads, Amazon and other retailers.
“A killer ending and the pacing of the story and the build-up is really good. I related to Vikram, really liked it.” Richard Sheehan, Author and editor
“I raced through the book… And the killer ending! Oh my God! It left me with a hangover, and makes me want to physically push the author to write the next book in the series faster.” Ritesh Kala, Book reviewer & blogger

You may have noticed a lot of media chatter around the fate of the Syrian refugees, esp the children, trying to find their way to a safer place. Over the past year I have often wanted to set up a channel to donate a portion of the lifelong earnings from the RUBY IYER series to the cause of the girl child in India. But the events of the last few days have spurred me on to do something, NOW.
So, all SEPTEMBER earnings from the RUBY IYER SERIES will be donated to SAVE THE CHILDREN: SUPPORT CHILD REFUGEES OF SYRIA. All the RUBY IYER books with their brand new covers, are on SALE all this month at 99p/c & Rs 69/49. Click HERE to buy them.
