Wish list Wednesday No.4

A very happy new year to you all!
 Hope you have a wonderful, peaceful and a joyous 2013.

Welcome to Wish list Wednesdays.  In case you  are new and do not know what Wishlist Wednesdays are, it is a writing prompt hosted by me, every Wednesday, in association with Westland Books, the publishers of  my new book 'The Secret Wish list' which has been getting some great reviews.

Each wednesday I shall host a writing prompt and you can answer the questions in your blogs or in my comment box. One person wins a copy of the 'The Secret Wish list' which will be mailed to them by Westland.

I have really enjoyed reading all the entries in the previous prompt.
I have also managed to leave comments on many entries. (I might not have been able to leave on some for technical reasons--but I did try).

This time, the winning entry is :

The other two entries which got a special mentions are:

  14. I Wish Everyone loved the way everyone wants to be loved. I wish everyone loved the kind of life one is living. I wish everyone loved the numerous blessings one is surrounded with which always go unnoticed. I wish everyone loved to see others being loved. I wish everyone loved to spread a smile on a stranger's face. I wish everyone loved to grow up, to feel the essence of letting go, to acknowledge the cure behind moving on. I so wish everyone loved to care for those who don't care. I wish everyone loved to love without expectations. I wish everyone loved to realise the beauty of nature. I wish everyone loved to be happy for the little things. I wish everyone loved to help a friend in need. I wish everyone loved to listen without judging. I wish everyone loved to light up someone's world. I wish everyone loved to sacrifice for others. I wish everyone loved to lighten the burdens of a heavy heart. I wish everyone loved to respect everyone. I wish everyone loved to do something personal between him and the Creator. I wish everyone loved to see how easy it is to embrace the good things. I wish everyone loved to eradicate evil from the world. I wish everyone loved to be secular. I wish everyone loved to love the not so lovely things of the world.. And I wish, I so wish everyone loved to express gratitude without expecting others to return the favours. I just wish everyone loved to see the world in a simple, uncomplicated, natural way! :) :)

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 …

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…
