    I wish i could touch them......it was last night, everyone was happy, with plates full of happyness and drinks by their side.
    It was the night of 31st dec. After every one was asleep i sneaked out of the house to gather at my rich friend's new year party. It was the last time i saw them.
    I returned, totally cheered and hooked up, just to find a house collapsed.
    I don't remember who said he must be someone i knew, he told me that the gas cylinder blasted.
    What i left in peace stood now in shattered pieces.

    I remembered my mom kiss my cheek (my face's still warm where her lips touched) and wishing 'let my age be yours', my father last hug telling me to work hard.
    They were somewhere beneath that ugly concrete pile .....my neighbour aunty would not let me stay here and look for them(i thouht she should let go of my shoulder where father hugged me, but i could'nt say it). I dont know how long i stood there or who put that bed beneath me or how that house shifted while i stood...staring...at the last remains of them.
    I don't know if God exists or not but if he'll boon me someday...i'd tell him.................
    I WISH TO TOUCH THEM..........once again.

  7. I wish I could touch 'LOVE'.
    I know its an absolutely bizarre wish but still,I wish I could do so.My Mumma gets worried so much when I am not well.She does not sleep for entire night and takes care of me.And for Dad,I am his Angel.My happiness is everything for him. My younger sister is such a chatterbox.Her day never ends until she tells me something spicy about her friends.She makes me feel like a star{yup,she admires me a way too much!But I am loving it!;)}.My cousins,far from me but always with me.They are an amazing mixture of a sibling and a friend.I simply cherish the time I spend with them.Those hangouts and get togethers,pranks and all the cool stuff we do is simply fantastic.My family loves me so much,its my greatest support,both emotional and physical.
    My friends or rather True Friends,those who have stood with me always...no matter what.They have seen me through the dark times of my life and know exactly well who actually I am as a person.The bond I share with them is extremely special since its the only one I have made myself.Rest all were gifted to me by The Almighty the day I was born.They don't have a blood relation with me but still they adore me,care for me and love me.
    I enjoy the feel of it,the feel of love of my loved ones....I just wonder how it would be to 'touch Love'.It is ofcourse a tender sweetness in a relation but still I feel curious to know how exactly Love would feel when I will 'touch' it....:)

  9. i wish i could touch souls!
    they ve always been a little mysterious to me. its the utmost basic thing of our life - our character, humanity, what we actually are. but still all we consider is the mind n body, intellect n heart. Invisible though our souls are, it is us-what we are deep within. to be precise, i wish to touch the good qualities of people that they possess in their souls. my imagination is that, it would be "blissful" to touch the positivity, tenderness, kindness, warmth of the souls of people with good nature. its the purest thing that can never be adulterated!

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…
