Fingerprint to Publish AND THE ROSES BLED by Mehak Daleh
What happens when the dead come back and can’t let go?
A catastrophe occurs in what was meant to be a funfilled day for Nina and Alisha. Minutes ago, they were
on the swings in the Rose Garden, and now, Alisha is standing alone, while the help runs frantically. Her sister,
Nina, has disappeared, never to be found again.
But the bond between them withstands even death. Nina’s ghost circles the house.
Is she here just to comfort her now lonely and distraught sister, or is she pointing the way to unravel the mystery
of her disappearance? The questions remain unanswered. . . until six years later.
Another ghost is reaching out to Alisha from the beyond, a ghost only she can see, and she has no idea why.
Battling the horror, the blood, and the nightmares that follow her in this macabre turn of events, will Alisha be
able to emerge from the whirlpool that the other side is trying to drown her in?
Mehak Daleh lives and works out of Chandigarh. She started working on ‘Roses’ on a cold December day in 2012, giving in to an image of little girls walking to a graveyard which had been stuck in her head for months. This image became the centre around which the manuscript grew.
Mehak relishes dark folklore and mythology along with contemporary fiction. Her stories, born where the everyday meets the extraordinary, are usually set in the hills where she grew up, and where she developed a penchant for the mysterious and macabre.
And the Roses Bled is her debut novel, and she is currently working on her subsequent manuscripts.
