Please join me in congratulating one of our members, Mysore Prakash, on the publication of his second novel, Yogi and Johan, The Beginnings. Mysore, we applaud your great achievement and wish you much success with your new book. You can find out more about this book from his synopsis and review below. I have also added his excerpt of the book under our FILES tab which can be found at the top of our website under MORE. Feel free to contact Mysore through the website email if you have comments for him. Since he just published with CreateSpace he might be able to answers questions you have about that process.
I wanted to let you know that my second novel “Yogi and Johan, The Beginnings” is now published. I have also attached a copy of the excerpt. I would appreciate if you would forward the information to our Meetup group. The book is now available at: https://www.createspace.com/3636002. In addition, the book is also available in Amazon Kindle format at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005MVAWSC. Below is a brief synopsis of the book along with a review.
Johan was an ordinary teenager growing up in Plano, Texas. However, his life was nowhere near ordinary as he was tormented by unexplainable horrific visions throughout his childhood. One day, Johan meets a yogi in one of his visions who helps develop Johan into a tennis prodigy. It soon becomes apparent to him that the yogi must have been his spiritual master from one of his past lives.
After an adventurous trek to the high Himalayas, he finally unites with his spiritual master. However, the central question remains: Why did the yogi want him to come to India?
In the first novel of the series, the reader is taken through the early life of Johan, the young American yogi, and his yogic adventures where the reader begins to find the answers.
"I had a great time reading this book; it got me completely immersed in Johan's world. I was really moved by the story of Neelu, the Dalit girl, and Johan's journey to the Himalayas to meet the yogi and the boundless yogic powers he acquires is fascinating." Julia Reisler, Plano, Texas
I look forward to your feedback.
