What I have been upto.

Hello people,

It is definitely nice to be missed. And of course, it feels good to know that I was.

Thank you to the kind folks who wrote to me reminding me that my blog was not updated for fourteen whole days, and one clever reader went to my FB page and checked my  twitter ,(I have been active on both, even though I haven' blogged)  and read my posts there and sent me a mail, guessing that the reason for my silence is because I have sent my new manuscript to the publishers :)

No--I haven't. (yet).  But I have indeed been working on my 5th book, and working very hard (oh, you have no idea! I work till I fall asleep in front of the laptop) and it is nearly done. But it it will be a while yet, ( a few months) before it is out. It is a lot of work you know, as explained in this post and the real work starts only when the first draft is done.

But I have been upto other things too.

Like using my new phone camera to capture striking images. Like this one.


Isn't this a great picture? (Even if I may say so myself)

Like spending time with my mother who is visiting, as mentioned in this post.

Like celebrating my daughter's 12th birthday.


(yes I clicked this picture too and that was her b'day cake --full of roses.)


Like playing with my dog. (yeah, she is a BIG dog)



Like catching up with good friends.




(In the picture with me is  Sachin Garg  who was in Bangalore recently)

Like reading a lot. (I had to tear myself away from a book to write this post. My reading list tends to be wide and varied)


The only thing I seemed to have missed is catching up on sleep.

And updating this blog.

I plan to make amends. (and yes, leaving a comment on my posts just might goad me into posting more often. :) I do like hearing from you, rather than this being a rambling  one-sided monologue :))

Until the next post,
Love and laughter

Preeti

Preeti Shenoy--Cover releaseCountdown
There's some exciting news for you :) My new novel is releasing in November. The pre-order link will be up on October 7th.

The cover  (and the title) will be unveiled for the very first time in Birmingham UK.
I am a keynote speaker at the Birmingham Literature Festival.



Desi Blitzwhich is Britain's  award winning, leading  Asian web-magazine, has been co-ordinating the whole event, and have been corresponding with me over the last many months to make this happen.




I am very very excited about it. I will be travelling to UK in October. I used to live in UK, andone of my novels features Norwich, the place where I used to live.
(Yes, I will be travelling to Norwich too, later, after the cover release).

You can watch the unveiling of the cover --LIVE by following myFacebook author page. (Hover over 'like' and enable 'see first' to not miss any notification)

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…
