Missing you.


I miss you when I wake up in the morning, and instinctively reach out to your side of the bed, to ruffle your hair.

I miss you when I go into the kitchen and make two cups of coffee, without thinking, and then remember you are gone.

I miss you when I lay the table for breakfast and lay a place for you, and then remember you are away.

I miss you when I iron the kids school uniforms, because you usually do it for me.

I miss you when I login to Orkut, because you usually say “please leave it on for me.”

I miss you when the kids leave for school, because you usually hug them, and whisper a ‘magic mantra’ in their ears, so that they have a good day.

I miss you when I read the newspaper, because there would usually be a story that I would want to share with you.

I miss you when I pick up the phone to call you, and I realize that you are in a different time zone, it is still night for you and you will be asleep.

I miss you when I have my lunch, because I know how much you would have enjoyed what I cooked.

I miss you when the children come back from school, because I usually would have called you up, to narrate in detail, what they did.

I miss you in the evenings,because there is no fourth person to complete the teams, to play “Trivial pursuit”.

I miss you when we have dinner, because there is no one to narrate funny stories and make us laugh.

I miss you when I read to the children, because you usually listen to it too.

I miss you when I go to bed even though the children are happy that they can have mummy all to themselves and cuddle up next to me, each on one side.

But most of all I miss you so much, simply because I love you.

More than you will ever know.

  1. My Darling, You have said how you miss me in quite a few ways. However I miss you in a million, trillion, bullion ways every nano second and every minute when I am away from you. I miss you when I am in Pune, but in office. I miss everything about you and when I see another family close by, miss you even more and feel jealous that I am not with you. You are a special person and mean the world to me. The only good thing I guess of being apart is the fact that we grow even closer each day. I cannot have asked for a better partner, person or friend with whom I would have liked to have spent the rest of my life with. Just another 24 hours and I am back home to eat your head. I adore you and care for you. Love ya loads.....

  5. My hubby does the ironing too! *grin*

    Isn't it grand to be in love with someone that brings you such joy... even in the simplest means. I am so happy that you have that. But, of course, sorry that you must be apart. I hope he's back to uh, 'eat your head' soon.

    Um... Hey. That doesn't hurt, does it? *chuckle*

    By the by--Your kids (snuggling with mummy)... that made me smile so wide. My kids are so very much the same way with me. They love the opportunity to have mommy all to themselves. :)

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…
