If I were a..Blog marathon post 6



This tag was actually a trap which I fell into at Life Begins'  post :-) She had listed things about her beautifully and I was reading and smiling and boom--the last line said I had been tagged just because I read it :-) I had promised her I' d do this tag.


Here are my answers.



If I were a month, I'd be December definitely and undoubtedly. I love this month. (not hard to guess why!)


If I were a day of the week, I'd be Thursday.(I got married on a Thursday, my son was born on a Thursday and Thursday also holds the promise of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, yet to come!)


If I were a time of day, I'd be 11.30 p.m: This is the time by which my family sleeps and I get a few delicious hours all to myself which I really look forward to as I'd have finished all my duties as a mother and a wife :-)

If I were a season, I'd be Spring. I totally love the flowers in bloom.

If I were a planet, I'd be Jupiter. That is my ruling planet as per astrology and somehow I love the largeness of Jupiter.

If I were a sea animal, I'd be a Dolphin. They are gorgeous and so intelligent.

If I were a direction, I'd be ..hmmm..I guess North as that is where the Himalayas are :-)

If I were a piece of furniture, I'd be a nice cozy bed :-)


If I were a liquid, I'd be Vodka for sure :-) Heady, Intoxicating and addictive :-)

If I were a tree, I'd  hate it!! I cannot imagine being rooted to the same spot for years!


If I were a tool, I'd be a high power drill ;-)

If I were an element, I'd be...I hate chemistry--aaargh. Element reminds me of the periodic table and the nightmares it gave me. No elements for me!

If I were a gemstone, I'd be emerald or ruby. I like red and green. I would NOT be a diamond.

If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a Jazz trombone.

If I were a color, I'd be black. Somehow these days that is my favourite colour.


If I were a emotion, I'd be a deep throated chuckle  that rings through your soul and makes you savour the warmth of laughter long after it is over :-)

If I were a fruit, I'd be a raw green mango with salt and chilli powder :-)

If I were a sound, I'd be THE song in someone's heart

If I were a car, I'd be a McLaren F1.

If I were food, I'd be plain white rice.

If I were a taste, I'd be the taste of cold water on a hot summers day.

If I were a scent, I'd be Eternity by Calvin Klein

If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be my six inch  wedge heels :-)

If I were a bird, I'd be an eagle

And If I were to tag people I will tag whoever wants to do this!

  3. You would NOT be plain white rice! You would be some exotic dish with a variety of colors and flavors thrown in... you would be so tantalizing to the tongue!

    I don't know you in person but your blog is an excellent insight into the kind of person you are - for an almost regular reader like me. You have this multi faceted, creative personality which is so not plain rice!

  4. " If I were a sound, I'd be the song in someone's heart." that was the top answer according to me. other answers too were honest but likely to change with age. You have already become the song of many cheerful hearts. THANKS!

    Too long for me to put answers for each.

    BUT Yes!, I can use this info to do social engineering around you and get your passwords ;)

    So whoever is doing this next, let me know. I'll try to get some money transfered from your account to mine :D

  8. Rohit: I just read whatever I wrote :) NONE of my passwords are even remotely associated with anything here :-) In any case you are the one who has taught me to make passwords secure :-)

    Sparkling: Don't take everything literally and to the dot ;-) :-) Make it 12.30 :P :)

    Roshan: A fabulous compliment indeed! Thank you!

    Bhavya: heheh. I may seem so. But I am really very simple at heart :-) I do looooove white rice. Especially when I see construction workers working whole day and eating it with just some salt and chilli powder (and no vegetables or curry) I value it all the more.Thank you so much for that truly fabulous compliment.

    Mihir: Thank you

    Life begins: I must that you :)

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

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

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 …

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!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
