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! :)

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…
