Set sail on a unique travel experience through an e-book - the voyage begins!After a long hiatus, people started on trips with families and friends. Soon will be the summer vacation, which means once again, perhaps, setting out on a fun holiday. So this e-book is going to be a travel experience, but not the usual one of a road trip or onboard a flight. It is going to be a voyage on a cruise ship!
E-book theme: The Voyage
What you have to do: First register in this thread so that a chapter will be assigned to you. Once registrations close, you will not be able to participate in the contest, so hurry! You will then keep track of this thread to know when the previous chapter and photo have been submitted. You have to submit your chapter within 24hrs of the photo response. Please refer to response #755329 in the registration thread.
Since the theme of the book is a voyage on a cruise ship, you can include any aspect related to it, including dropping anchor at a port and passengers going offshore, activities on the ship, new passengers boarding, perhaps a mystery or a sweet romance...as unique as it gets!
1. Each member will submit a chapter in English in the order assigned and must also upload a self-taken photo relevant to the story and one that will be the element that the next author has to include in her/his chapter. The element can be included in any way but should be relevant to the chapter's context. Please refer to response #755329 in the registration thread for clarity.
2. The chapter's content can include conversations, new characters, etc but no references should be made to weapons, drugs, etc
3. The chapter should be limited to 400 words (no more than five extra words is fine, if absolutely necessary). You may edit the chapter to correct basic errors such as incorrect spelling or to make grammar corrections, but do not change the character or main elements as then the next author will be confused.
4. No title is required for the chapter and no links should be given.
The best chapter (up to two) will get a cash prize of Rs.150/-. The next best chapter will get a cash prize of Rs.100/- (one prize). We may give a consolation prize as well. The best photo element in terms of relevance to the story will get a special prize of Rs.30/-.
The authors of the e-book as of now are-
1. Chapter 1- Partha
2. Chapter 2- Dr. Deepali Gangwar
3. Chapter 3- Varghese
4. Chapter 4- Dr. Srinivasa Rao
5. Chapter 5- Kailash Kumar
6. Chapter 6- Shampa Sadhya

Note- in case an author fails to submit the chapter within the 24-hour time frame, then the next author will continue.
So let's set sail!
