Notably, the Ram Chandra Series is planned to be a 5-book series of which three are already doing great in the market. Ram: Scion of IkshvakuSita: Warrior of Mithila and Raavan: Enemy of Aryavarta are the first three books in the 5-book series and the release date of the new book will be shared soon, according to the author. 

It is pertinent to mention that author has previously said that the book is completed but the release has been delayed because of his previous publisher, Westland, getting shut. He apologised for the delay and asked his readers to have a little more patience as he will announce the release date of the new book soon.

Amish Tripathi's Shiva Trilogy captured the Indian market as it became the fastest-selling series in Indian publishing history. Other than the Ram Chandra Series and Shiva Trilogy, the author has also penned middle age fiction Legend of Suheldev: The King Who Saved India and a non-fiction Immortal India: Young India, Timeless Civilisation

The author is also credited for co-authoring Dharma: Decoding the Epics for a Meaningful Life with his sister Bhavna Roy. It is important to mention that the publishing rights of all the above-mentioned books will now be with Harper Collins (only English language).

Talking about the author, CEO of Harper Collins India said, "Twelve years ago when The Immortals of Meluha was first published, it created a revolution and announced the arrival of a significant new voice in Indian fiction. Since that first book, Amish, with his fantastical storytelling, has created multiple parallel universes and has entertained millions of readers. I am so thrilled that HarperCollins will now be the home for all his books globally!"
