It happened one night.

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.

  20. My comment there seems to have bounced off and now when I try, the page just refreshes :(
    Anyway, that was an opportunity well used by ur husband to leave a nagging boss speechless, and also left with nothing to complain about hehehe :)

  21. Lol! A great post there!! Loved how your husband rebutted his ex boss in the nuts with simple words. Admirable.

    Am happy that the kick came out to a wonderful memory you guys laugh about.:D

    I got kicked by my cousin while asleep in her house before. I let her off the first time. She went for a row of three times. The final round i just woke up and slap her. And went back to sleep. The lady went on snoring.. lol! She did not even know she kicked and i slapped. But it sure did stopped her feet at its tracks.

    And happy u got a man full of godiva choco sweetness..lol!

    Keep it rolling..;)

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
