  12. Srivats: Oh--I LOVED ths sound of the the flapping wings of the sea-gulls! It was amazing! That is why I left it there. Also in that part you can hear the excited exclamations from the children. That was better than any music :) And peppy number--nah! It was such a tranquil and happy day. This score goes perfectly :)

    Reflections: No no--kids were with us :) You can hear their voices in the backgound where birds are flying :)

  43. What a way to spend ur b'day !!!!
    Nice video... The seaside part(0:31 to 1:10, and satish's pic at 0:53) reminds me so much of that song "Kahin door jab din dhal jayee..." from the movie Anand.. Ahhh, u r not a big fan of old songs. Watch that song if u hvn't.
    Cheers, Manu

    ReplyDelete
  44. Errata: song is "zindagi kaisi hai paheli....." from the same movie

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!

Would the disorder strike again? What d…

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

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 …
