Here’s the set-up:

An awkward family homecoming at Christmas.

A humiliating public weigh-in, with two judging parents as the audience.

The announcement of a deadline for arranged marriage doom.

And that’s just the first two chapters.

In “Year of the Chick,” Romi Narindra must find love before her parents find her a husband. This is a difficult task in a world where self-consciousness is at an all-time high, and dating experience at an all-time low.

Severely lacking in seductive skills and uninspired by her corporate job, Romi turns to what she loves, by writing about her quest to find love on her brand new blog.

From whiskey-breath scum bags to uni-brow creeps and everything in between, Romi and her wingmen come up empty time after time. Just when giving up seems like the thing to do, she meets a fellow writer unexpectedly.

On the Internet.

So will it be arranged marriage doom, or an Internet affair that’s not as creepy as “To Catch a Predator”?

Time will tell in the “year of the chick,” a twelve-month quest to find love.

Tick-tock.

Year of the Chick is a tale of fiction inspired by a blog the author wrote in 2008. This story is book one of a trilogy, with book two due out in 2012.  Length: 74,000 words or 288 pages

..
DISCLAIMER: this book contains profanities, blunt accounts of the dating scene, and many awkward family moments. Enjoy!!!

Homer and Langley Collyer moved to upper-class Harlem in 1909. By 1947, firefighters removed Homer’s body from the fortress of junk he hadn’t left in 20 years. This quintessential New York City scandal of Homer’s death, and the brothers’ habit of saving everything they touched, was national news for weeks.

Arranged-Marriage Ads, Internet Dudes, Bar-Hopping and a Quest for Love: YEAR OF THE CHICK!

Year of the Chick

by Romi Moondi

5 stars – 1 Reviews

There I was in 2008: writing a blog called “Year of the Chick” ( http://romi41.wordpress.com/ ) wanting to be a writer, fearing an arranged-marriage set-up, and wondering why I sucked at the dating game.

Now here I am in 2011: on the outer edges of expiry for arranged-marriage bliss (sorry dad), and teetering on the edge of trading in the dating game for cats. Lots of cats.

But hey, I wrote a book.

(One out of three ain’t bad.)

I’m glad I finally wrote this on my own terms, since being in charge means I can write about why guys should never refer to females as “babygirl” (since it implies a physical attraction to female infants…gross). I can also describe how a girl can be locked in her bedroom during her sister’s arranged-marriage set-up, because her younger age and fairer skin would screw over big sis’s chances.

There’s also the topic of Internet dating, and how it’s so much easier to stumble into prospects these days. It’s also so much easier to think you’re Internet dating when you’re not even sure what that means, which is another confusing issue I delve into (at the expense of my main character’s ego.)

None of this is written in a sad, self-pitying way, but always in a humorous way. Because we’ve all got problems, yeah? So we might as well laugh at them.

Therefore…if you like love, if you like dating mishaps at the bar, if you like the intrigue of Internet dating, and if you like the spicy twist of arranged marriage possibilities (complete with awkward tea-time meet-ups), then this book is for you.

And if you end up liking this book? Then books two and three in the trilogy will also be for you  (book two will be released in 2012, and is based on a screenplay I wrote, which made it to the semi-finals or better in five screenplay competitions in 2011).

Thanks for listening, and as a final note, “Year of the Chick” (at 74,000 words) is currently on sale for 99 cents, but only until December 11th. Here’s the link for Amazon US: Year of the Chick e-book

Thanks!

One Reviewer Notes:
“The Book of Awful was one of the most hilarious, clever books I have read in a long time. The author’s sarcasm is timeliness and brilliant! This book is so well written, and kept me in stitches the entire time. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a light read, hours of laughter, and a positive view on how great life is, and how it is not as awful as it could be! Looking forward to the next piece by this author – simply brilliant and captivating!!!”

About the Author
Do you really care what university I went to, whether or not I have a fuzzy cat named Snowball (his name is actually Sammy), and how many years I’ve been writing for? I will assume you’re cooler than that, so the answer of course is no. What’s left then? Okay I got it: -I did not shy away from wearing denim-top-to-bottom in high school (there is a direct inverse relationship between how much denim I wore and how few tongues were launched down my throat at school dances…or anywhere in high school at all). -I’m continually baffled by that Malaysian baby whose father let him smoke two packs of cigarettes a day. That baby had so many fat rolls, and I thought cigarettes were supposed to be slimming. -I always hated those insufferable couples who would cuddle and make out on the subway…until I became half of one. But now I’m back to being none of one so I hate them again. I hope that will suffice for now, dear stranger. If not, feel free to follow my “over-share” account on twitter :-).

Kindle Nation Bargain Book Alert! Romi Moondi’s THE BOOK OF AWFUL is our eBook of the Day – 4 stars on 20 reviews and just 99 cents on Kindle for the key to happiness?


[LIMITED TIME SUMMER SALE: ONLY 99 CENTS!]

 
Here’s the set-up for Romi Mooni’s The Book of Awful, just 99 Cents on Amazon:

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all held hands and pooped rainbows?

Sure, but until our world becomes a technicolor paradise, what’s the REAL way for people to get happy?

Avoiding catastrophe.

This parody of “The Book of Awesome” outlines one awful(ly
ridiculous) scenario after the next, to demonstrate how much worse life
could really be. Whether it’s a world where you finally meet your evil
twin, the cancellation of Facebook, or the discovery of unicorns that
forever alters society, you’ll feel relieved you’re only READING about
it.

For ease of comprehension, the author lends her humble experiences to
several topics, and leaves no stone of embarrassment unturned (not even
the one where she had head lice as a grown adult).

To cover off a vast array of concerns, the book is sectioned off into highly relevant topics for mankind:

1. Self-Image
2. World Issues
3. Life Skills
4. Food and Drink
5. Society and You
6. Alternative Lifestyles
7. Stalking, Dating and Romance

You can read it all at once or jump in when you’re feeling blue. Not
that you’ll feel “awesome” by the time you’re finished…but
overwhelming relief?

Highly probable.

And relief isn’t far from happiness, is it? (Let’s not split hairs)


From the reviewers:

Great new voice.  I’ve never seen a better combination of racy wit,
sarcasm, pop culture awareness and (yet) humility. More importantly, I
laughed my you-know-what off too many times to count. Moondi has a
spectacular voice that’s on display on every page. Hopefully she can put
a few more books out before big media snatches her up and takes her
away. — Dave Conifer

I love cupcakes, the smell of bread baking, birds chirping and all
that malarky; but there’s nothing quite like the feeling of having
dodged a bullet. This book is a dense volume of bullet-dodging scenarios
that will not only leave you with that satisfying feeling of “glad I’m
that not that guy”, but also a thoroughly busted gut!  –  Danielle L.

Sarcastic, Cynical, Hilarious.  The minute I read the book blurb I
knew I needed this book. It was worth every penny. It’s so stinkin’
funny! Basically, if you want a fun read with cynical humor that will
make you laugh and feel just a little more grateful for what you have,
well this book’s for you. – Pamela

Romi Moondi writes a humor blog. In it she talks about her body, her
desire for sex/a mate/a boyfriend, her urban life, and pretty much
anything else she finds funny/ironic/sad.  There are a handful of laugh
out loud moments (maybe more if you are a single, urban, Indian-American
woman); certainly enough to justify the cost. Buy this e-book and read
it. – G. Jones

Do you really care what university I went to, whether or not I have
a fuzzy cat named Snowball (his name is actually Sammy), and how many
years I’ve been writing for?

I will assume you’re cooler than that, so the answer of course is no. What’s left then?

Okay I got it:

-I did not shy away from wearing denim-top-to-bottom in high school
(there is a direct inverse relationship between how much denim I wore
and how few tongues were launched down my throat at school dances…or
anywhere in high school at all).
-I’m continually baffled by that Malaysian baby whose father let him
smoke two packs of cigarettes a day. That baby had so many fat rolls,
and I thought cigarettes were supposed to be slimming.
-I always hated those insufferable couples who would cuddle and make
out on the subway…until I became half of one. But now I’m back to
being none of one so I hate them again.
I hope that will suffice for now, dear stranger. If not, feel free to follow my “over-share” account on twitter :-).
