  17. Preeti,

    Those are some colorful pictures. What are the berries in the first picture?

    I like your idea of Wordless Wednesdays. I guess it also makes posting for your blog a little quicker, does it? ( I have a blog and I feel that writing and getting to the final draft takes me more time!)

  22. Lovely Pictures, Preeti. I liked the last one especially. To me, Autumn is a pleasing season with breath taking hues.

  23. As the autumn nip in the air starts to become stronger and stronger, what we all need is to get the fire going, draw up the chair, sip hot tea and read Preeti's blog. Thanks to wordless wednesdays we get some lovely photos.

  24. With no offense to autumn and its fans, I feel a sort of sad sluggish feeling creeping in during Autumn as it would be Winter soon.
    Not that I have any issue with it,excpet I am not quite used to the wrath of the cold season.
    I love Spring annnnndddddd its "Spring here" :D
    may be I should post some optimistic spring snaps :)
    feels so new and fresh!

    Ayyo, meje deva!! Bhornu kashta jalle mu!! Jambu nayi!! :D The "red avvalo" used to grow in my granma's garden. It is not sweet that you can eat it off the tree, but avvalo chutney is one of the bestest in the whole world. Unfortunately, you don't get to buy this in shops! :(

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.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
