A new year wish !

There is a tradition that we follow on new years eve. We usher in the new year by lighting the lamp,at 12.00 AM, together as a family and expressing gratitude for all our blessings. It wasn't any different last night.

We lit the antique brass hanging lamp, which hangs from the ceiling in my pooja room, as well as the second lamp that rests on a brass pedestal. We also performed the Arti with camphor and lit incense, to the chant of Sanskrit mantras. And we prayed.

I believe that it is important to express gratitude to the Universe/Higher power/Destiny/God or whatever you want to call it. We have to be grateful for the things that are right in our lives. There is scientific proof and several psychological studies have recorded the impact that expressing gratitude and journaling the things that one is happy about, has on one's over all well-being.

This morning, we woke up early and went to a Venkateshwara temple. I liked what the 'Kolam' said :)



I also liked the way the entire temple was decorated with floral garlands.



Thus began my new year.

And this is my wish for you today . (snap clicked just a little while ago)



Wishing you wisdom, wishing you have a special person to hold your hand through the tough times, wishing you strength to smile when things don't go as you desire and above all the hope that everything is going to work out just fine! A happy new year from The One You Cannot Have as well as from the ones you already have!

  11. I just read your book TOUCH... finished in just two days.. I got the book delivered yesterday n have completed it a hour and a half ago.. I must say it is a binding book.. You so want to know the character's next move just as their chapter ends. But what I didn't like about the book was the ending, may be because I was expecting something else, because somehow I could relate to Aman and Shruti's story and wanted them to be together, as I wanted my perfect story to be, but I guess whatever happened was for good, but seriously, I don't think anyone would be at peace after that. You can never get a closure for a love like that, or can you? I don't know. !! :( :(

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…
