Delhi Book fair and the last Tuesday prompt!

And so it goes. (with due reverence to Kurt Vonnegut)
 This is the last Tuesday  of February and it has been a truly GREAT  month. I met so may of you who have been taking part in the 'Tea for two tuesdays', yesterday at Delhi, during the event at World Book fair.
It was fantastic meeting you all!

I am truly blown away and deeply indebted with all the love you have shown me!  Some of you came from places as far as three hours from Delhi and waited so patiently to meet me.

If you wish to read about the book fair and the event in detail, Aabha has written a post about it here.

Here are two picture from the event (thanks to Aabha again) :

Signing books.

Reading out parts of the book. With me is Vintage (an imprint of Random House) Editor Sheeba.



Now like all good things, the 'Tea for two tuesdays' should also come to an end.. and this is the last one in the series. I do feel bad it is coming to an end, but I feel wonderful about the camaraderie that it has created!  After all, that is truly what blogging, writing and books are about, isn't it?
The connect that words create and the fact that our minds can meet before our physical selves have!

Here is the last prompt in the 'Tea for two (and a piece of cake) Tuesdays".

And this time it is just to get to know YOU better. It has nothing to do with Tea for two or a piece of cake!.

Answer the following questions about yourself:

1. If you had Rs.50,000 to just blow up (you have to spend it on YOURSELF. Giving to Charity or buying gifts for others not allowed), what would you spend it on and why?


2. Name three of your closest friends (not family or spouse) and say why you love them.


3. Name three books which have profoundly affected you and which you would recommend to everyone to read.


4. If you know for certain that you can never ever fail, what would you attempt to do?


5. What is THE ONE THING that you want very very badly?

Go on--take part. You have shown me so much love! You know so much about me.

Now I want to know about YOU! :)

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…

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.
Love
Preeti
