An Untold Conspiracy is a humorous account of a man with a quirk--and the extraordinary measures his colleagues take to combat it! Set in a small town in northern India, this story follows Coinman, his peculiar habit, and the incredible animosity it provokes in everyone around him. He just wants to do his clerk's job with colleagues who'll treat him fairly. He just wants a wife who'll treat him like a husband. He just wants a happy home life. Instead, what does he get?

His colleagues are planning his complete destruction.

His wife is an obsessed actress more than a little "off plumb."

And there are enough shadows and secrets in his home for two lifetimes.

Can Coinman ever get what he wants? Or will that cost him his sanity?

My advice to aspiring writers:

Think about what's different about the book you are about to start writing. Do lots of research on topics / ideas detailed in the book. Travel and see different places and meet different people. Make sure you have a way to capture your thoughts at all times - so that they are not lost later. If you are a fiction writer, read a lot of fiction books with a variety of genres; even if those are very different than the genre you write in. Develop reading interest in philosophy, psychology, and history, if possible. Observe people around you because many of them will provide you with several traits in your characters, if not become one of them. Network immensely with the writer and reader communities to help you write better and promote your book better. Don't get demoralized by negative reviews and discouragements from individual readers -- because those may not be the target readers of your writing. Similarly, don't get overconfident by a few good reviews and always hear the critics with an honest ear.

Quotes from Coinman: 

“Isn’t life a collection of weird quizzes with no answers to half the questions?” 

 “The only thing God is afraid of is a strong-willed human!”

“People say there are thousands of options we have in life. I say we have only two: we can either be happy or be unhappy.”

“Talented minds have always been stealthily targeted by mediocre ones.”
