The uninvited visitor





Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  2. I love the lizards point of view!
    I'm such a freak I would have tried to convince my husband to let me keep it. I have to adopt just about everything I come across. Except for the flying roaches. In San Antonio they have huge, flying roaches. They usually stay outside in the fields, sometimes they come inside. Inside is bad. One of them fell on my husband while he was taking a shower. He came tearing out of the bathroom, screaming like a woman, with the shower curtain wrapped around him. I told him he should do that at least once a week because it was so funny. He said something to me that was very, very, crude. He has no sense of humor sometimes. Of course if it had landed on me it would have been a totally different story. A totaly trauma and a national tragedy. News at 11.

  3. Oh, too funny!! I love that you got pictures and that you also told the story from the lizard's point of view! Fair is fair. ;) OK, tell your husband he's a wimp for not coming to your aid, ha!

  4. Ha ha, very funny! But I still can't believe that your husband was scared of the lizard! But I do understand your blogoholic tendency! I hope no one called police after hearing your psycho scream:).But just wondering how did you get that insight into the lizard's thought ? you can talk to animals ?

  5. Rayne's story about the roaches in the shower was so funny!I laughed out loud.Thank God,it was just a garden lizard that came itnot mine.If it was a roach that landed on my head,it would have been a REAL psycho scream--not a faked one:-)

  8. This is awesome! My first reaction after seeing the picture was to scream in cyber space. But then again, I don't have a real-time husband who would save the fake damsel in cyber distress. And I think it would also look uber stupid! :D

    You have such a fertile imagination.This is my first segue to your blog and love your posts so far

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.



When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …

Latest book from Preeti Shenoy: Wake Up Life is Calling. Watch the trailer HERE

Hi!

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!


The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
