A lovely letter I got.

 Hi there,

Where do the weeks vanish? Is there a little time gobbling monster that sits on the edges of life and gobbles up time, when you are not watching?

I can't believe that it is two weeks since I wrote in this blog. I don't think i have ever had such long silences in the past, except when I was moving homes, across countries. So the resolution now is to post at least once a week.

At my end, what has been keeping me busy is my new book! Yes, I am working on it and it would be out later this year. That is all the details that I can reveal right now. I am really excited about it! :)

Other than that, if you miss me too much here, you can catch me every  Saturday on Financial Chronicle. I write a regular column there called Sex and the city. It is on relationships, love, lust and everything connected to that. I post my columns and online links on my FB page. and all the columns are in this album.

Every now and then, I get such lovely emails and messages from my readers---and the messages are so beautiful and encouraging. No matter how many I get, I always feel good to get yet one more.
I share with you one such beautiful message (shared after taking permission from the person who wrote it:)




I do get many messages like the above. I cherish them---because my writing has made a difference in someone's life. How awesome is that?!

The Secret Wishlist is now translated into Tamil!
I cannot read Tamil and so it feels fantastic to see my work in a laguage I cannot read. I only hope the translations have been done right! :) Click on the link to buy it.

If you want to read more reviews of the Secret Wishlist, click here. 
You can get it at just Rs. 78/- and  if you scroll down, they have a combo offer too, where you get The Secret Wishlist as well as 'The One You cannot Have' for Rs.198. (and that includes a free home delivery!)

Anyway--now that I have broken the long silence, I hope to be around here more often.
Till then, make a secret wishlist---and watch it come true :)

Love
Preeti

  10. Hi Preeti...
    Its so great to see that mail... Your books are really a "look into self" portrait of the present era youth, where they could see themselves in one or the other way... Yes... thus, definitely it will be a real life saver, an inspiration and a motivation, and I should say it will be a good counselor too...
    Let your words take many lives to the heights of success and transformation...
    waiting for your new work...

  11. Hi Preeti,

    Just completed the novel "The One You Cannot Have" and cudn't wait to write this to you.

    This is one of the best works I have read recently. I was so engrossed in it that waiting for tomorrow to complete the novel was completely out of question.

    I could easily identify with Anjali who is waiting patiently for her Aman to let go off the past and accept the present whole heartedly so that we can both make a promising future...."My Secret Wishlist" has the only wish of having a happy ending rather a happy beginning same as described in the novel

    I hope my Aman (lives in your city...) grabs a copy and read it with the same passion and love with which I did...

    Kudos to ur work and expecting some more masterpieces from your side...wud love to read each one of them

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…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
