Meet me at Kolkata :)




If you happen to be in Kolkata on 26th April (Friday) I will be at Starmarks, South city Mall.
Eminent fashion designer Agnimitra Paul will launch ' The Secret Wish list' and I will be in conversation with Prof.Arupa Lahiriy

If you are on facebook, here is the link to the event page.

I also got featured in two interviews today.


Afternoon Voice (Mumbai) featured me.

Womens Web too has published a really nice interview with me, where they have asked some questions which are different from the ones I am usually asked. I enjoyed doing that one. They are also doing a book-giveaway and for a chance to win a copy of 'The Secret Wish list' all you have to do is leave a comment on THEIR post.(Not on mine!)

See you soon!

And  if you can't make it, wish me luck please :-) (for Kolkata)

  11. do launch your next book in Kerala, preferably Cochin. thats where i live. And also because Kerala is one place that you have a special bond with, considering you grew up in Kerala.

    1. Thank you for the suggestion Femina. A clarification--I did not grow up in kerala at all :) Secondly I did two events in Kochi last month. At DC books and at Ritu Kumar store. Will surely be doing for the next book too. Thanks :)

  13. Hi Preeti,
    Well this book does not seem to be fulfilling 'my wish' of meeting you.. I wish I was in Kolkata when you would come to the 'city of joy' for your book launch :( .. But then I know you are going to write many more books and I will meet you again .

    Have a great time on your first book launch in Kolkata. I am sure you will come very soon with your 5th book too. Loads of luck and best wishes :)

    Love & Regards,
    Nitu

  18. Hi Preeti,

    I read the entire book - The Secret Wish List!

    OMG!!!! What a wonderful script and narration....I couldn't take my lunch once i started the book...it almost took me a kick on my back from my ever loving wife to realize its already 4pm...

    When i finished the book it was so refreshing....It was all abt the book, sentences and you...from out evening coffee time till our moonlight walk...

    It was so good! Thanks for your book and keep going...it feels great!!!!

    Congrats...May all your dreams be true ever...

    Wishing you from deep down heart!

    Regards,
    Saravanan Kasinathan

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

May drawing challenge! A story of two portraits.

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
