A hole in your socks ,doggie texts and chuckles



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.

  7. ha ha ha... people ask the same about underwear. They ask u if u have a hole in ur underwear, and when u say NO, hiding ur embarrassment, they ask u how did u put it on? LOL! I liked the tail text.

  22. Oh the socks one was really funny. I told this to my daughter and now she is going to ask her lil brother and father.This PJ is going like a chain mail now.

    When my husband went on tour while my children were young. My daughter used to wrap his bath towel around her while sleeping and my son would wear my husband's bermuda shorts.They would not allow me to wash them till he came back.

  43. I really like this bit. Here I am slogging my butt off away from home and see what happens:
    - the kids are pleased that I am not around.
    - Preeti enjoys the attention she is getting and tops it up with a blog post too.
    - her readers instead of sympathising with me, talk about her tail and all that stuff and about Purvi's sense of humour.
    I do not see any humour in this matter. Just a conspiracy to keep me travelling and away from home.

    But have to admit in all honesty though, that like a puppy I do come back running home and enjoy it (whether or not the kids get a chance to be with mom or not).

    ReplyDelete
  44. Damn cute pic! Hope you didn't "shoe" ur daughter away after that sock-joke!

    ReplyDelete

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…
