With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, it is time for a rekindling of memories and stories – of romance and heartbreak. To add to the season’s spirit, here is a novel that is not just about idyllic love, but of what comes after, and in between. It is about real relationships, as they evolve, and sometimes dissolve, and not just about romance that exists only in fairytales. A romantic read with a difference, bestselling author, Nikita Singh’s thrilling new novel – Letters to My Ex – is set for release on 14th February 2018.
Setting the context with a peek into the plot, the author adds in, “This book is an exchange of letters between two people who have hurt each other, and are trying to recover from the heartbreak and fix their lives. It tends to get intense, and very emotional at times, which I enjoyed writing. As the girl who writes long texts and emails, I’m very excited to see how people will react to it!”
When a relationship ends, we all think, “I wish I could write a letter to my ex” in order to say everything that needs to be said. Breakups are tough, and even though you will find ways to get over them, but it is not an easy thing to do.
Have you ever started a calm and collected conversation with your ex, but before you’re even halfway through saying what you wanted to, you end up a wreck? It’s happened to all of us or to all those who have faced breakups, and one solution is simply to write it all down.
Letter to my ex – Yes writing a letter to your ex gives you a fantastic opportunity to release everything that you’ve ever wanted to say into the world.
I know that writing a letter to ex will be therapeutic and cathartic way of coping with loss and heartache. Remember to take your time, make it as long as it needs to be, and at the end, you can either send it off knowing that he’ll or she’ll finally hear everything you wanted to say, or just tear it up, be free, and be done with it.
About Letters to My Ex –
Most love stories have their share of misunderstandings, angry tears and hurdles – only for longing and faith to save the day and make for a happily ever after.
Most love stories – but not all. Not the ones that end with hearts left broken, their shards lost under the weight of all that is left unsaid. In these powerful yet quiet letters of looking for closure, Nikita Singh explores the what-ifs, whys and what-could-have-beens; words demanding, with grace and dignity and passion, a salve for what only time may heal.
From the bestselling author of Like a Love Song and Every Time It Rains, here’s a story of heartbreak and things left unsaid, articulated through letters, channeling in their nostalgic charm, making for a fitting medium of expression in this novel which is distinct in form and marks the author as a master of her craft.

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
