Writer of commercial fiction Anuja Chauhan is said to have been offered a 6 figure dollar deal (Rs. 65 lakh in Indian rupees).
Bestselling author Anuja Chauhan’s decision to move on from HarperCollins Publishers India, the publishing house she started her writing career with, to Westland, has surprised, if not shocked, the publishing world. All her three books ‒ The Zoya Factor (2008), Battle for Bittora: The Story of India’s Most Passionate Lok Sabha Contest (2010), and Those Pricey Thakur Girls (2013) ‒ have been so far published by HarperCollins.
Chauhan will now publish her new book, The House that BJ Built, a sequel to Those Pricey Thakur Girls, with Westland, which has promised her more numbers, more publicity, more everything. Apparently, the negotiations have been going on for six long months. Chauhan’s earlier books will remain with to HarperCollins.
