Pictures from a wonderful trip. Blog marathon post 8

Place: Bentota and Colombo, Srilanka.
Year: 2011
Month: December
Occasion: My birthday

Discovered the beauty of mangroves for the first time in my life.


And the wonderfully colourful masks.


A kitten which  was smitten.








So smitten that it even followed me everywhere as soon as it woke up. I was so tempted to smuggle it back to India!




And beautiful baby turtles in a turtle hatchery.


Lots of happy memories like the Buddhist temple we visited, the thousands of fish which nibbled at my feet, the beaches, the shopping and the really chilled out feeling.


A beautiful place for a vacation (although I must say it was a LOT like Kerala)

  1. I must visit Kerala during my next trip. Probably the only state I have not visited so far in India :(.

  3. The last line is the reason I have been keeping Sri Lanka lower on my to - visit list. I just do not want to go to another Kerala kind. Might be nice... but I don't know how different is it.

    The turtles... beaches and monasteries do sound tempting still.

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
