Coming soon!

 Hi there,

Apologies for not posting this sooner.

Things have been crazy in a crater-erupted-inside-my-home kind of a way. I have been working NON-STOP since Friday evening. I took a break only yesterday morning. I worked and worked, till I fell asleep in front of my laptop. Upon waking I worked again. I had to revise my manuscript of my 5th book and do the edits, and God, it is a tough task, requiring immense concentration and effort. You cannot let your mind wander even for a few seconds, as you might have missed something.

When I work on edits, I shut down from the outside world. Nothing else matters. I find anyone trying to even talk to me, an intrusion. Fortunately I have a co-operative family and they give me my space and time.

 In case you want to read more about the process of writing a book, click here.

And this is just the first round of edits  which  are over. (two more remain)

Meanwhile nobody guessed the title of the book, and so I went ahead and revealed it on Facbook. For those of you who are not on FB, here it is, my 5th baby! (The due date is 2nd week of November.)



I am very excited about this book, as 60 percent of the book is from a male point of view. My closest guy friends who read it, (including  Satish) said that nobody would even say that a woman has written it--it captured the thoughts in a man's head exactly. All of them, felt it was my best work yet.


I felt happy about that.

The book is about unrequited love. I shall share the synopsis and cover soon.

Meanwhile there will be a lot of fun stuff happening on my FB page. 
Do join me there! (Especially if you want a quick reply  from me to anything you have to say. I am very active on FB and Twitter )

In the other news, I have two sessions at the Pune International Lit fest!


 

Both my sessions are on 21st. So if you are around, come and say a hi :)
Here is the website for more details: http://pilf.in/

I leave you with a visual I shared on Facebook. These are lines from 'The One You Cannot Have'.






Will post again soon! 

Till then, please wish me luck :)

And tell me  what you think about the early glimpses of my  new baby :)

Good night folks.


With love
Preeti

  14. Hi Preeti,

    I haven't read any of your books . . . .I bumped into this blog accidentally and am glad it happened. next, I quickly looked up a few websites on books to find raving reviews by all your readers . . . congratulations!!!

    I am looking to read one of your books, I found "The Secret Wishlist" the most tempting one so far . . . However, your new book "The One I Cannot Have" seems equally enthralling . . . .

    I look forward to enjoy your books as much as I do your Blog Posts . . . and yes - do keep writing :)

    Eagerly waiting for your 5th book.
    The way you build up suspense on your FB page makes the wait tolerable.

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…
