Silence in the blogopshere

Photobucket

Most bloggers seem to have gone on vacation.(I just got back from mine in Kerala) There seems to be quietness and calmness that has arrived on a bus that seems to have lost its way, and is now unwilling to find its track. Niall's blog seems to have been taken over by Oskur. Keshi seems to be whisked away into party zone. Prats is off to Goa. Thinking aloud is thinking quietly, with her parents visiting. Tys is in Kathmandu. Joe is in Fort Lauderdale.

And while all this was happening, my 36th birthday arrived and it left quietly too. (On 21st December) I had to constantly remind myself that it was special. It didnt feel so. I almost forgot my birthday myself. We were too busy heaving sigh of relief that our tickets came through. (Why do I still feel like I'm 20?!)

See you all when you get back.Or rather, see you all when my mind gets back. (It seems to be still on vacation and I am trying hard to drag it back to write mode--pun intended)

I wish you peace, joy, calmness and all things beautiful.

  1. Well, lucky for them...and for you! I'm still here.

    Happy belated birthday! It's funny that you and Niall have birthdays on the cusps of Sagittarius, both on the 21st but of different months.

  8. ....while GAWPO has been gone so long he doesn't even merit being mentioned as having been gone. Yes, I know. I think work has me by the tail, Preeti. But I do think of you. And your birthday is going into my Palm Pilot unto eternity now that I have figured out how to get it to note an event every year forward. A co-worker just showed me how to do that.

    This morning on NPR I could swear that one of the young men being interviewed was named Atul. Yours will be getting international airtime soon enough.

    Happy Birthday.

    And Merry Krishna (?) :-)

    xo,

  9. Gawpo,Gawpo: You brought a BIG smile to my face as only you can!Merry Krishna was brilliant!!What is NPR? By the way Atul is a common Maharashtrian name.(Maharashtra is one of the states in India)
    Believe me, I haven't forgotten you--I think of you often.In fact I have this feeling that we will meet in the near future--Lets see!

Preeti Shenoy--New novel releasing soon!

Preeti Shenoy--Cover releaseCountdown
There's some exciting news for you :) My new novel is releasing in November. The pre-order link will be up on October 7th.

The cover  (and the title) will be unveiled for the very first time in Birmingham UK.
I am a keynote speaker at the Birmingham Literature Festival.



Desi Blitzwhich is Britain's  award winning, leading  Asian web-magazine, has been co-ordinating the whole event, and have been corresponding with me over the last many months to make this happen.




I am very very excited about it. I will be travelling to UK in October. I used to live in UK, andone of my novels features Norwich, the place where I used to live.
(Yes, I will be travelling to Norwich too, later, after the cover release).

You can watch the unveiling of the cover --LIVE by following myFacebook author page. (Hover over 'like' and enable 'see first' to not miss any notification)
You can also follow the page as there will be a lot of fun stuff happenin…

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Incest-- a taboo

My post for today would probably seem shocking to many. I have written about Incest, and my views on it, in detail. If you click on the above image it should enlarge.
