For those in Delhi, Gurgaon and Jaipur.

Tomorrow (6th Feb)  I leave for Delhi.

If you are in Delhi, do drop in at 6.30 pm, to Landmark, Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj.
 I will be in conversation with Vinita Nangia, Senior Editor, Times of India. (I love her columns O-zone that appears every Sunday in Times Life) . Vinita loved my book! Praise from her, meant a lot to me.



On 7th, we have another event happening in Gurgaon.



I will be in conversation with Anuja Chauhan. Right now, I am reading her first book 'The Zoya Factor' and I love it! Her second book 'Those Pricey Thakur girls' has recently been released. (I am yet to read that one).

On 8th, I will be in Jaipur, in conversation with Mita Kapur who is a writer herself and also the founder and CEO of Siyahi, a literary consultancy.



I had posted the invites on my Facebook page a little while ago.
A reader commented

"Hi. You are close but not very close to my place. :( "

I replied back saying "Well, I am traveling  2157 kilometres to come to your city."

The fact is, I do leave my home (my children have to be on their own till my husband comes back from work, and sometimes he is working late or traveling) , my dog and all my other work, when I travel to come to your city. I give up on my precious and much awaited weekends too! I feel wonderful when people turn up in large numbers to attend the event that my publishers take great pains to organise. All my events are very interactive, and we talk, converse and have a lot of fun.

As a writer, when I meet my readers face to face, it is always a happy moment.

Nothing beats a face to face meeting.
If you are in Delhi or Gurgaon, and are reading this, I am hoping to see you :)

After all I have travelled more than 2000 kilometres to be in your city. :)

  2. Hey! All the best!
    I am a huge Anuja Chauhan fan and love her books and had to comment and correct that 'Those Pricey Thakur girls' is her third book. 'Battle of Bittora' being the second!
    Cheers :D

  7. Hi Preeti, I came but could not meet either you or Anuja Chauhan. I came to Canvas and Quills today, but since I was with my 10 months old daughter, who started making noises the moment the discussion started, I had to leave. However, it was great seeing you though. That in itself was an inspiration to write more and read more. Hope to meet you next time! - regards, Deepti

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).

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…
