Three handmade cards--a giveaway

Most of you know (or at least I presume, the regular readers) would know that I make cards (and have sold so many by now too!) in between writing books.  (Have even been featured in The Indian Express for my cards!) :)

Over the last two days, my creativity has been on an overdrive :-) I didn't want to quill but wanted to make something pretty and nice. Something connected to wishes coming true. (My book The secret wish list is a story about finding the courage to manifest your wishes and it is also a contemporary romance :-) What is life without love, after all!)

I made one card but I wasn't satisfied with it at all. So I destroyed it. Yeah--I am like that :-) if something doesn't make me happy, I get rid of it!

Then I made these three cards--which I am super pleased with.





 








I am hosting a blog giveaway for these three cards.
 They are blank inside and  they come with matching envelopes :-) I think a loved one would be delighted to receive one of these--don't you agree? They would be mailed in a hardcover envelope.)

What do you have to do to enter?

Answer two simple questions.

1. How many pages does my latest book ' The Secret Wish list' have?

2. Who is the last one who has been mentioned in the acknowledgement pages? :-) (Hint--She has been featured many times in this blog! )


Enter your details in the widget below after you answer the questions in the comments section.

  18. I've told this before to you and saying it again - I love the fact that you make it a point to mention your dog's name in your book. I am proud of you for making sure your pet is included as a part of your life! :-) In fact I eagerly look at the last page first every time to see if you have mentioned about your dobe! ;-)

  21. Hi preethi
    I am avid reader and love fiction. Read many books written by Indian authors and none could impress me like the ones your books did. Right from tea for 2 a piece a cup cake to life is what you make it and ur recent addition The secret wishlist, I read everything where you've penned your thoughts and underlying meaning to identify women as one of the most powerful weapon and be prepared for any eventualities and on how to face it. Thanks for all those things and coming to the giveaway ... it is your third kid Lostris and doberman and coming to the pages it is 256 without adding the acknowledgement pages and including the acknowledgement it is 260

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!
