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'm also glad Y won for you!
    That's very true. I think most of the time N wins with me, I don't want it to win, but it tends to be stronger than Y for various sorts of reasons.
    But I'm trying to nurture Y and make it stronger :)

  3. Glad Y won this time!

    In my life, N was fed alot as a child who was constantly bullied at school. I have spent all of my life since leaving school building up the Y in me. Y? Because I am worth it!

  4. Today at the clothing store.. N was clearly the winner. I came home with nothing. Maybe N will push me into loosing some needed poundage?? BUt maybe Y will tell me otherwise. Only time will tell on this one.

  5. I wold definitely want Y to win....but I am not sure who will prevail at the end :)

  6. ah ofcourse,
    mr yes and mr no.

    for me its miss yes and miss no...
    or according to my preference..miss good and miss naughty.

    Y loves me, N loves me too. It is such a hassle keeping both of them happy you know.
    The Mr no you depicted here is a bit more mean than the one I got.

    am glad Y won for you.

    for me, its complicated..
    there isn't just miss good and miss evil.
    but there is also doctor love, socrate's wannabe, stuntman extraordinare, and quite recently, the writer...

    meaning, multiple people.. good, evil, lover, philosopher,daredevil and author.
    gotta keep em all happy...
    back to your post.

    bsically showing the duality of man..similar to Dr jekyll and Mr hyde.
    And true to that story, jekyll actually loved hyde...he loved his nature, but hated the fact that he hurts others in the process, so like a fool he killed himself, and hyde in the process...if only he had realised, that he should listen to hyde at times, but keep the beast in control

    I can't ignore miss naughty for long, she just shows up suddenly wearing leather demanding that I play some prank. Regardless the consequences. She gets into a catfight with Ms good, and usually wins.

    one thing I don't get though, you mentioned N critizes you... no no..that is not n...that is your G..meaning Guilt.

    am a little disheartened though...
    you wrote my post..I was working on a similar one.. with a lot more people than just Y and N...now will have to take some time before I post..else it will seem too obvious.

  7. I love the illo with this entry? Is it your work?
    I, like Bob-Kat, dealt with a lot of bullying at school and a lot of abuse at home. Mr. N was my life-long companion and I am just now learning to tell him to sod off.
    On the days I succeed I feel so much lighter and so free.
    I think one of the hardest things for some of us to do is find value in ourselves.

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…
