Front page of Zest by the Navhind Times

What an awesome Christmas gift! The lovely folks at the Navhind Times took the time out to talk to me about Resurrection and featured it on the front page of their weekend magazine, Zest. Huge thank you to Christine Machado for noticing the buzz around the book and giving me a spot on such a popular publication. If you haven't read the interview yet, you can head over to the media section, or click the link below to read it on the Navhind Times website.

Resurrection - Now available in paperback

I am super excited to announce that Resurrection is finally available in paperback in select markets, exclusively on Amazon.

Thanks to Amazon publishing, Resurrection is now available in all formats in the US, UK, Canada, and Europe. Unfortunately, however, it will still be a while before the paperback version is available in India - but I'm working on it.

In the meantime, to all my friends, family, enemies and acquaintances across the world, it would make me the happiest writer if you would consider buying a copy for yourself or someone you love.

Resurrection has been a labour of love that was started somewhere in 2015, and features 50 poems about love and loss that I have written over the last 15 years. Thank you to everyone who has been with me and supported me through this incredible journey - especially my beautiful wife and my forever love, Sheraline. Thank you for inspiring me every day. I love you.

What is Amazon Kindle Unlimited? And other FAQs

Ever since I went exclusive with Amazon for Resurrection, I've been receiving messages asking me what Amazon Kindle Unlimited is, how it works, and most importantly, if Resurrection really is free to read. So instead of answering each of those messages individually, I decided to put together this little FAQ to answer them. Here goes.

What is Amazon Kindle Unlimited?
Simply put, Amazon Kindle Unlimted is a digital lending library that allows you to check out and read over a million books for a small monthly fee. What makes it unique though is that there is no return date. Users can keep up to 10 titles on their bookshelves at any point in time, for as long as they want, and return those before downloading new titles.

How much does Amazon Kindle Unlimited cost?
Rates vary by market, though for the most part, it costs about the same as an Amazon Prime membership, or the literally the price of one book. Here in India, it costs ₹169 per month (at the time of writing).

Am I still able to buy a book if I like it and want to keep it forever?
Yes of course! Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscriptions integrate with your existing Kindle to allow for borrowed and bought books to reside together on your shelf. Once you're done reading a Kindle Unlimited book, you can choose to buy it and keep it in your collection forever.

Where can I find Kindle Unlimited ebooks?
You can find Kindle Unlimited books everywhere you shop for Kindle books today. Look for the 'Kindle Unlimited' icon throughout the Kindle Store and click on the "Read for Free" button on Kindle book pages to start reading. You can find popular titles and recommendations on the Kindle Unlimited page

I don't own an Amazon Kindle or Fire Tab. Can I still read Kindle ebooks?
Sure you can! With the Kindle app for Android and iOS, you can download and read Kindle ebooks on your smartphone, iPad, or tablet anytime, anywhere. You can also participate in programs such as Kindle Unlimited through the app.

Do I have to be an Amazon Prime member to get Kindle Unlimited?
No, you don't. These are both different programs from Amazon.

I already have an Amazon Prime account. Does that entitle me to read Resurrection for free?
As an Amazon exclusive, Resurrection is open to any and all Amazon Kindle programs. This includes Amazon Prime's free selection of monthly titles, however, there is no guarantee as to if and when Resurrection will be available to Prime members, and in which markets.

Where can I find more information on Amazon Kindle Unlimited, and sign up?

Resurrection, exclusively available on Amazon worldwide

After the freebie promo right here on, Resurrection is now exclusively available on Amazon worldwide. "But Mark, didn't you say that you were going to sorta keep Resurrection as a free download forever?" Well, that's the great part about being an Amazon exclusive. If you love reading and are part of the Kindle Unlimited program, then Resurrection is absolutely free to download. Additionally, if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow Resurrection from the lending library for free as well. Availability, however, is limited though, so get it while you can. 

As you can see, this is clearly a very exciting phase in online digital publishing, and it's all still new to me. The book is and always will be available to buy if you're not a part of any of these programs though, so life does not have to be so complicated. Plus, early next year I will be releasing the paperback version through Amazon as well. So if you're the hands-on kind of person, then you can wait for that. Thank you for all the love and support.

Merry Christmas, Resurrection is here!

I honestly didn't think I'd get this done in time for Christmas, but thanks to the awesome folks at Amazon, I guess wishes do come true! It gives me immense pleasure to announce that Resurrection is now available on Amazon (worldwide) as a Kindle ebook, and will be available as a paperback early next year. However, before I make it an Amazon exclusive, I'd like to give back. For all of you who have supported me, encouraged me, and been a part of my journey in writing, I want you to have a copy of Resurrection. This book was 5 years in the making, and now that it's finally out at Christmas, I see no better gift. So, for the next three days, Resurrection will be available as a free downloadable PDF right here. On the evening of December 26th, the link will be deactivated, and from then on, the book will be exclusively available on Amazon - so get it while you can! ;)

Once again, thank you to everyone who has loved and supported me. This one is for you. I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas!
