600th post and a giveaway of handmade cards!

The last time I had done a handmade card giveaway on this blog, there was an amazing response! This my SIX HUNDREDTH post!! I cannot believe the places my blog has taken me and the amazing friendships I have made through my blog in different countries. To celebrate my 600th post, I have made these five cards. Four of them are quilled. (My latest fascination. I learnt how to quill recently)

I would be giving away all these five cards to five different people. If you want me to sign it, I can sign it for you, else I can leave the inside blank so that you have a handmade card to sent to anyone special in your life who deserves it! You just have to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win. I shall just use a random number generator to pick five numbers--so when you leave a comment, just begin the comment with your comment number. (Person who comments first is No.1, next one No.2 and so on)

You like them?  Want them?

You know what to do! :)
And FB comments are not eligible for this card giveaway! This one is for all those who take the trouble to write me such lovely comments!

I shall announce the five names on 10th December!

ps: You can interact with me on my Facebook page if you have something to say and don't want to comment here!

    Quilling is fun and takes loads of patience. I had made some cards in the past.
    Btw, lovely blog by a lovely, warm person.
    I read in your previous posts that you got married in April end and that you went to Kodai for your honeymoon. Your name starts with P and your spouse's with S. Well, my name starts with S, hubby's with P. We too got married in April end and had gone to Kodai for HM:)

  73. 74. Woohooooo!! Congos on the 600th post.
    Pretty and awesome cards. :)
    Lots of wishes to you and may you reach 1000s soon..

  74. 65.

    hey!!! Where did my comment go???

    Mine was number 65!!!!!!
    I posted a comment n I am wondering where my comment vanished!!!(Now, i deserve the card coz I posted two comments)!!!! :(

  75. Ace servicing from Onida in the household appliance segment has really been something to watch out for. Kitchen gadget shoppers are lucky to have the glimpses of its services. Yet again, the service from Onida meets the core preference area of the shoppers.

  76. 75. The cards look very professional and on looking at it one would definitely want to make something similar or get hold of them :-) Congrats on your 600th post, I've found many of them inspiring :-) Glad to know your third book is out in February! :-)

  77. Its really nice...

  78. 76.

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. — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017

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

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.

Get the book:

Preeti Shenoy--New novel releasing soon!

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.
