'Curious as a cat'--An interesting meme.

It has been a while since I did memes now.I found a nice one at 'Curious as a cat' and I decided to do it.Here it is.
1)Which one person would you choose to understand you better?

A childhood friend of mine who is still in touch with me. Sadly she has never understood me. We grew up together and were great friends. As adults, life took us in different directions.Our priorities in life are totally different but we are still friends.

2) What do you think is the best age to be? Why?

My current age. I’m really enjoying life. The diaper changing days and the sleepless nights are long over.Kids are independent, yet not ‘grown up’ and we have a great time together.


3) Of all the people you know, who would be the easiest to seduce? Why?

‘Easiest’ very obviously be my husband. Why--because at times I don’t even have to try ;-)

4) What's the best advice you didn't heed?

I tried hard to think if there indeed was any. Cannot think of anything! I usually ask for advice of a trusted friend, only if I really dont know what to do--and most of the time, I heed it.


5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

First thing that comes to my mind is that my son has to be at school at 6:50 am (yes—that’s not a typo) on Monday morning as he has an exam. GROAN!!

****************************************************

If you want to do this meme too, just let me know-- I’d love to come and read it.(try it--it really makes you think)

If you don’t have a blog, you can answer the questions in my comment box. I’d love to read that as well!!

As an afterthought, I feel memes get done only when you tag someone! So here are the ones I'm tagging...

Ritu --Vivify!

Prats--Emotional Ecology

Suma--Thinking aloud

J-- On the rocks

  22. I have to say 'snap' for your answer to Q4. That is exactly what I am like too. I only ask advice if I don't know what to do and then if the advice is good (which it usually is as I choose those I ask carefully) I taek it! The onlt persons advice I haven't heeded was my own on occasion and oh boy I wish I had afterwards. I have learnt to listen to my intuition!

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…

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 …
