3 songs. Blog marathon post 13

Here is a meme I created. Please feel free to use it in your blogs with a link back to this post.

In my third book, 'Tea for two and a piece of cake' all the chapter titles are songs. If we really think about it, I think there is a song for every stage in our life. There is a song for every person in our life. And there probably is a song which personifies how you feel about certain things in your life. Therefore this meme revolves around songs.

To participate what you have to do is give us three songs (be nice and post  link to the you tube video please!)  that would best  describe the following three things in your life.

1. Friends
2. Love
3.Parents

And here are my answers:

Friends:






2. Love: For me this is the ultimate love song :





3.Parents:





Strangely this is fairly recent Hindi song which one would not usually associate with parents. I have personal memories connected with this song--and I cry each time this song plays. I do love the lyrics too.



 Please do leave me a comment if you take part in this meme. Or leave me a comment even if you don't have a   blog. I love to discover new songs!

And hopefully you enjoyed my songs too.

Good night folks!

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
