We are a group of crazy book lovers. An ordinary set of friends, with ordinary mundane lives. But the one thing slightly extra-ordinary in us, is our common insane passion for books and writing. So whenever we have too much coffee, we crave for some melon juice !
Writersmelon is that refreshing destination for us.
A humble beginning in 2009, with pure passion for books & love for the written word, we witnessed the growth of social media and something that we call as the ”pop culture of literature“. Writing and getting published was no longer a privilege available to very few and a ”reading culture beyond text books” was slowly catching up in India.
Seven years down the line, we are a leading community of thousands of book lovers , constantly buzzing with ‘real conversations’ around Books, Authors & Writing.
We aspire to become the favourite destination to :
Discover great Books & Authors.
Encourage new Writing.
Engage in ‘real’ conversation around BOOKS , AUTHORS & WRITING.
Book Marketing wasn’t really a term widely used, as few years ago. Until the concept bestsellers got established and re established. Our unique community approach for new release books, combined with other professional services have been widely appreciated with glowing testimonials from authors, their agents & reputed publishing houses.
Melonade – The nationwide writing competition , is an attempt to provide a platform to young & upcoming writers from all walks of life. It gives them an opportunity to showcase their stories get judged & reviewed by some very respected & widely read authors.
Melonade Books : With hundreds of stories received every year in Melonade, the best stories are published into a collection of short stories. We have published two books so far – First Brush on the canvas | Jukebox
It has been 7 full years of running a marathon, a roller coaster joy ride of aspirations. Of creating and re creating, inventing & re inventing new ways to promote Reading & encourage new Writing. And sure have a long way to go.
