BIO: Harsha Sheelam concentrates on the issues of today that young teenagers face, and tries to motivate the young children towards positivity. She chooses an unconventional way, quite different from the stories of yesteryears. Her fantasy tales empower young girls and boys to be strong, optimistic and confident. She believes that children have the inquisitiveness to learn more every day, and in the era where they are exposed to wide variety of media, books are the only way to sustain their innocence. She accepts that every person is beautiful inside and out and shouldn’t be put down by anyone who thinks otherwise.
Full of humor, wit, and insight; the short stories and novel champion hard work, perseverance, honesty, and compassion. The books have age-old and contemporary wisdom in a delicious form.

THE PROS AND CONS OF BOOk CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENTS: are they worth it for authors and bookstore owners?
One of the most common ways for independent authors/publishers to get their books into bookstores is through a consignment agreement. A consignment agreement allows a bookstore to sell books without having to pay for them upfront through a distribution agreement. In some instances, bookstores purchase books from a publisher at a wholesale price (often 50% of the retail price) and sell the books. With the consignment agreement, bookstore owners eliminate the risk of losing profit because certain books do not sell. Although most offers expect to sell thousands of books to bookstores the traditional way, this is a small compromise in exchange for shelf space in several stores.
