Updates from my end, including Bangalore Launch of 'The One You Cannot Have'

So,  the Forbes India Celebrity 100 Nominees List for 2013 is just out.

 Only 10 authors  have made it to the longlist including, yours truly.

A question I keep getting asked is 'How does it feel'?
I do feel proud and happy and also very grateful to all who read me. I also feel a sense of achievement .That's about it! How else am I supposed to feel ? :)

In the other news, TWO of my titles were in the Nielsen Top ten. The One You Cannot Have opened at No.2 !



The reviews have been fabulous (also read the reviews on goodreads) and the mails praising the book have been pouring in. Many people are telling me that it is a 'must-read' for anyone who has broken up. They tell me that it feels like their story. I am delighted that it has struck a chord.

My publishers came up with this poster!



Indigo 91.9 fm which is Bangalore's only English radio station (I listen to it a lot--they play some awesome music)  are putting me on air tomrrow between 11 and 2. I will be in conversation with RJ Shagufta. If you are in bangalore, tune in. You could even win signed copies of the book. :)

To celebrate the success of the book, we are having a grand launch at The Royal Orchid, Bangalore, tomorrow. (6th december 2013). If you are in Bangalore, I would love it if you join me. Kindly mail me on ps(at)preetishenoy(dot)com and I would be happy to send you an invite with all details!


I am looking forward to it--it is going to be fab! :)

A Hundred Little Flames. How I signed 3000 copies!

In the past, I have blogged about how I signed 3000 copies of my previous novels, The Secret Wishlist, The One You Cannot Haveand also It's All In the Planets.
(Click on each one to read about the signing of those books)

I have also written aboutwhy I sign my books 'With Love, Preeti Shenoy'. (Do read the post)

It is that time of the year again, when I sign my pre-orders. I have just got back from Manipal, utterly exhausted with knotted shoulder muscles, numb finger tips and a feeling of wanting to sleep for a hundred years. I am bone-dead tired.

I left for Manipal, on 25th which has one of India's finest and most advanced Printing press. To reach Manipal, you have to travel to Mangalore, and then go by road, a journey about an hour and a half. My flight was late, and by the time I reached Manipal it was about 7.30 pm. I checked into the hotel, and knew I had two long days ahead of me.

The next morning, we reached the press at 9.00 am.

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
