DESTINATION: THE MOON
In Feb 2021, an opportunity arrived for the Wrimo India Anthology to be sent to the Moon (and *loud screaming* to be read by future travellers to the Moon) which was grabbed whole-heartedly by the wrimos (wrimos are writers who write or have written a novel during NaNoWriMo).
The idea cropped up very close to the deadline but we wrimos are used to it. And being writers, we always have a story or two lying around which we can brush up and send off to the writing party. Of course, some wrote a new short story/flash fiction/poem in the 24-hour deadline.
This anthology is also path-breaking since it is the first multi-lingual anthology by Wrimo India (do check out the pieces written in Hindi and Marathi).
We ended up with 28 gorgeous pieces of writing which we are sharing with you in this book. There's romance, crime, horror, literary fiction, women's fiction, poetry, flash fiction...in fact, literally a banquet for you to quench your reading thirst.

What is a diary? It can be described as a personal book or even a safe space in which one can record one’s experiences, thoughts and ideas of both one’s outer and inner worlds. What is around us affects us. One aspect of outer world includes crime. This can take many forms: assault of all types, murder, and even fraud. Be it a differently-abled child or a woman undergoing domestic abuse, obsessive love that can lead to fraud and breakup of lifelong friendships or then honour killing - because you are not allowed to decide whom you can love and marry. Be it a modern world, urban or rural, every crime story affects us collectively.
This Diary Of Crime Stories is a collection of 3 gut-wrenching crime-reads that will leave you on the edge of your seat, with their colourful characters and shocking twists & turns, asking for more.

A Wrimo India Anthology
A reply to a perceived injustice can take many forms one of which is vengeance. An eye for an eye can only end up making the whole world blind, is what Mahatma Gandhi once said. And it seems to be coming quite true, if latest events world-wide are an indication.
Is there any hope or are we hurtling towards extinction.
Hopefully, the stories will explore some of these questions.
But that is on the macro level. It might be easy to look at things objectively, in black and white, when it is other nations involved. Or even other people. We are able to be more forgiving of transgressions when they don’t involve us personally.
But how would one react if they found themselves in the maelstrom of situations that do fall somewhere in the grey area of life. With no definite black and white answers?
How would a jilted lover react in face of infidelity? Or how would a friend avenge the murder of her best friend? Or, is it fair to be punished for a crime that you were not brave enough to prevent?
These and many more questions connected to vengeance have been grappled with in this anthology by writers who are first and foremost Wrimos homed in to Asia::India region. Most of them are also published writers of short fiction and novels.
We hope you enjoy reading these stories.
Of course, the fuel for a writer is the feedback they get from the reader.
