Launching "Temple of Hope"

Narendra Simone, a Chemical Engineer (IITR, 1971) turned Author successfully launched hid latest novel ‘Temple of Hope.’

On 26th July 2014 Narendra launched a Kickstarter campaign of his debut novel of Sophie Kramer series, ‘Temple of Hope’ which is a fast-paced thriller that exposes the dark underworld of Child Abuse and will take readers on a nail-biting, roller coaster ride. Reviewers of his previously published books described him as, ‘Master Storyteller’, ‘Stunning & Original’, ‘A Page Turner’, ‘Masterfully Crafted’, ‘Nail Biting Thriller’, and ‘Highly Stylish’.

Narendra, a citizen of Canada, (and resident of Canada & the USA) is a published author, and writes fiction, memoir, and misadventure.

Having witnessed 6 wars and lived in 7 countries and travelled extensively through over 80 countries, he has in-depth knowledge of several cultures and has seen things that compel him to write and share the truth hidden behind the thin veneer of the societies. Inspired by true events his writing offers insight into cultural differences and behaviour dilemma that coexist in the diversity of the different races of the world.

In male domineering societies it is always refreshing to find female protagonists. ‘Temple of Hope’ is the debut novel in the series of Sophie Kramer, an FBI Special Agent who is committed to fight the oppressed systems that harbour human rights abuses, for personal and professional reasons. Championed by the female protagonist, the fictional tale reveals the truth about the unseen India. 'Temple of Hope' is a fast-paced thriller that will send shivers down the readers’ spine.

Narendra has already published 6 novels and sold thousands of copies. The current book has been written, critiqued and industry-recognized professionals have edited it. He is now turned to “crowd funding” to involve his readers in the production of his new novels.

The Kickstarter campaign for the debut novel ran until September 21, 2014 and the book was claimed to be one of the most successful books on Kickstarter.
