ReviewI received a copy of Pavarti K Tyler's new book entitled "Shadow on the Wall" to review. What I will say to you is this. Buy it. Read it. It was wonderful. Not only was it a page turner that I read in one sitting (something I have not done in a few years), the story lines were well constructed and the dots all amazingly connected. --Naif Al-Mutawa or the99.org
Pavarti K Tyler s Shadow on the Wall, her first book in The SandStorm Chronicles, is a delicious read even as it exposes themes that are difficult to grapple with. Her beautiful and vivid prose places us in a world where we forget ourselves and fall into her characters we love them, we hate them, we understand them, and we are mystified by them. Even as Shadow transports us, once we step back into ourselves we are left thinking about her real-world depictions of religious motivations, corruption, fear, tenacity, and hope. --Jessica Swift Eldridge, editor, publishing consultant, founder of Swift Ink Editorial Services
From the moment I read the first sentence, I could not stop until I finished reading. As an Arab Muslim, I found it refreshing, to finally have someone sharing my cultural background to not be a "terrorist", but be an actual "hero". The imperfections of his character are what made him believable to me. We are not perfect, no one is, but he took his imperfections & became a hero for the people, instead of a suicide bomber. If anything, I see him as a metaphor for redemption, I am extremely excited to follow these Chronicles. I have always used to say that "Batman" was my favorite superhero, I have no doubt from this point on, my #1 answer will be "The SandStorm". --Mosno Al-Moseeki

Her great book White Chalk is a coming-of-age tale dealing with the modern complexities not many of us are willing to admit exist. This story is brilliantly written and makes me wonder how today's children will be able to forge ahead in a world of chaos and confusion. Pavarti goes out on the limb while exposing truths shoved to the side or simply not accepted by mainstream society.

Shocking, driving, compelling, riveting: these words describe my raw reaction to Tyler's latest novel. The characters are real and believable. The first-person narrative is bare, unadorned; it provides an unobscured and clearly focused view of the heroine's journey through her personal hell. As I read, snippets of my own children's comments about school came back to me with greater impact. Could that student they mentioned have been going through this? Could my own children have had similar feelings in their own circumstances? My children are fine, but I'm still discomfited by the thought of "what if." A writer's intent is obviously being realized when it forces you to consider the uncomfortable possibilities of these scenarios happening to your own children. Tyler's ability to describe in words the feelings of an adolescent is tremendous and very insightful. Some many moments just spot on. Kudos to Tyler for the tremendous effort, the research, and the ability to evoke in me such feelings of anguish at the novel's end!
In the latest anthology she is in, Horror In Bloom, Pavarti wrote My Darlings. I was the second set-of-eyes on the editing, and my words as I read it were, "This is over the top great!" Of course, should I have expected anything less? No way. This entire anthology is an eclectic mixture, but Pavarti added super-juice!
As you can see above, I have any number of links to what Pavarti is involved in. She is all over the place busy. She is busy with Evolved Publishing http://evolvedpub.com/ and Fighting Monkey Press https://www.facebook.com/FMPress both. She is involved with erotica and transgressive literature, and she still finds time to submit to other publishers. This is a good thing because I believe sometimes a certain stigma is attached when an author writes for one Press only. It shows a depth of acceptance from the writing and publishing community.
