Akul Sachdev, author of three romance novels, is ready to bid his career a fond adieu. Yearning for the kind of change that comes after achieving success, Akul joins forces with a rollicking team of comedians and begins traveling the country in search of technique and inspiration for his fourth book. His heart, however, is somewhere else as life strangely begins to imitate one of his romantic tales.
As he severs ties to his past, Akul must now focus on what he considers himself bound to do--bring the art of making people laugh to paper. But as alcohol, heartache, and the comedians' shenanigans prove to be crippling distractions, Akul begins to doubt himself and his abilities. When catharsis threatens to steer him off course and away from perilous waters, Akul must somehow find the strength from within to determine what it is that he really wants from life--and himself.
I'm Not Being Funny shares the tale of a romance author's quest to fulfill his purpose and find happiness after he reaches the pinnacle of success.
