A book fair and some personalised happiness :)

Anything worth doing is worth doing well. This has been my credo, my motto, my belief ever since I was old enough to have a conviction. I have held on to it steadfast through all these years.

Anything I do, I give it all I have. That is the only way I know.

When I do my portraits, I do the very best I can.
It's the same with my quilled cards.

Most of my cards have been sold.
To be very honest, the money I make from writing my books is truly a thousand times (yes a thousand!) more than what I make from selling cards! But the emotional satisfaction in being a part of the joy of the giver as well as the recipient is matchless!

I am delighted to get mails from people thanking me for adding happiness, magic and joy to their lives.

Recently I started  taking orders for customised quilled monogrammed cards. Here are a few of my latest creations. The people who ordered them were overjoyed with the results :)













The cards are all mailed in a hard envelope, well packed. I need about 4 working days from date of placing order to make a personalized card for that special person in your life.

For the prices and other details, you can mail me on ps(at)preetishenoy(dot)com.

 In the other news, I have been invited in my capacity as a popular author , to attend the National book-fair which is going on at Ahemdabad. (yeah the same one inaugurated by Narendra Modi).
The Director of the national book trust extended me the invitation and it was an honour speaking to him, as I have grown up reading books published by NBT and CBT. (national book trust and Childrens book trust) Check out their books, if you havent heard of them. They have some of the best books published in India.

I will be at Ahemdabad on 6th May. If you are around say a hello :)

And now I have to finish two more card orders!

So bye for now.
Have a super weekend! (I know I will--I will be at a book fair :) )

  4. The cards are truly very beautiful. I am so glad to hear that you are doing a brilliant job of engaging with people despite your very busy schedule. Many friends who read your book after reading my post told me that your book brought about a positive change in their relationships and interactions with others. To have been able to do so by writing a book so simple, effective and meaningful in thought, word and deed is the envy of every writer, be it a budding writer or an accomplished one.

    Please keep writing and do start on your next book soon. Cheers!

  12. I love this blog and can’t get enough of every aspect of it. You are a fabulously talented writer and manage to make everything so relatable. You are so good at this in fact, that sometimes while reading I feel like our hearts and minds become one and basically I feel as if I am reading my own thoughts.

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…
