Amazon India--Indian fiction best-sellers
  



If you click on Amazon India's best-seller list right now (updated hourly) this is what it looks like. :) . 'Life is what you make it' is on Number 4 and 'The Secret Wish list' is on No.13.(a record of sorts as it is the highest it has climbed so far). Needless to say I am thrilled to bits. (If you haven't read them, go get them now!)

Apart from the above, some  nice things have been happening in my life.

The Doon School has invited me for a talk, at their campus. I leave for Dehradun on 7th August.

IIT Kanpur has invited me as  speaker at their E-summit 2013, which is happening  at their campus. I leave for Kanpur on 18th.

I am going to be speaking on 'The secrets of success' at both these talks.

What makes people successful? What exactly is success? Do you really think hard-work is all that is needed to be successful? Or are other skill-sets necessary? Is success determined by the choices we make? Does destiny play a part? What are the qualities one should cultivate in order to be successful?

These are some of the questions I would be addressing.

In case you wish to explore this topic an excellent book that I recommend is

 Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers 

However the talk I would be giving would completely be from my own experiences, not Gladwell's :) After all, looking back, I can pin-point with accuracy, all that has worked for me and how my life and views changed, with each step that I climbed.

That's all from me, for now.
I shall try and post snaps of the very picturesque Dehradun.

Till then-- Keep reading great books, guide your mind to happy thoughts and may you have peace and positivity.

Stay blessed.

  7. Hello mam,
    I have read all books(including two by pre-ordering :)) and I simply love your style of writing and expressing yourself. I have been following your blog for more than 18 months now. What could be a better moment than to meet 'The Preeti Shenoy' right here, in my hometown!
    I live in Dehradun. I would love to meet you. I know you'll be on a very busy schedule but if in case there is any chance of meeting you, I'll be very glad ma'am. It would be a pleasure.

  13. Dear Preeti, Just finished reading 'Life is what you make it'. All I can say is I have someone very close suffering from Bipolar Disorder and things are not upright now but reading the book gave me strength and hope and some more insight into his problem. Hoping to see someone like Dr. Madhusudhan, very soon in his life. Wish you all the very best to continue writing with this sensitivity- lots of love-aarti

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
