Tea with me?

To celebrate the fantastic success  as well as the six month anniversary of my third book 'Tea for two and a piece of cake', my publishers Random House India have come up with a unique contest where 5 people get to have tea with me at a lovely location.

Here is the  link to their post which gives all details. While the contest is open to everyone, do note that the travel expenses to the venue will have to be borne by the contestants..Therefore it is actually a treat if you are Bangalore based. :) Living in the same city as me, has to have some small advantages right? :)

In another exciting thing which happened to me, Zee Business (Zee TV's business channel) interviewed me as a part of a story they are doing on the popular authors in India today.
Here are some still-pictures from the TV shoot.





 They  asked me interesting questions and they even shot some footage of me with my doggie who decided to co-operate and she was camera happy and enjoyed every bit, unlike her owner who found it all strange :) I have no idea though how much of it would be lost in editing.

You can catch the episode on Saturday 11th August, at 8.00 PM  and there is a repeat telecast on Sunday at 11.00 am and 5.00 pm. The name of the show is 'Weekend edition'.

Youth ki Awaaz (which reaches out to 4.5 million people every month)  published an interview with me, yesterday. This is the link, if you want to read.

I am slowly replying to the tonnes of mails which I have been getting regarding my books and cards. I thank you all for the patience. If you haven't got a reply from me after 20 days, please do resend. I might  have over-looked.

Will post again soon.

Till then, stay positive and happy!

  5. Congratulations on all these achievements Preeti. 6 months Anniversary, interview for Zee and yet another one on Youth ki Awaaz..... the list seems endless.

    Amidst all your success I feel really proud to have bagged a chance to publish your interview on my blog here. Thanks a ton Preeti for giving me this opportunity.

    I had recently been to At INFINITEA on Cunningham Road, Bangalore, the venue for winners of this contest. The special green tea that me and my hubby bought from here was like weighed and costed gold! But superb place to have 'A cup of tea and a piece of cake' with Preeti.

    Fingers crossed and just hope I get this awesome chance to meet you.

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…
