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.

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…

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 …
