13 things.Sunday Stealing.(blog marathon post 14)

Thought I would do a fun post today for the blog marathon. And hence I decided to do a Sunday Stealing:


1. Outside my window… 

is a large expanse of space, a tiny portion of which houses a small organic vegetable garden, currently canopied under a moonlit sky littered with millions of twinkling stars.

 2. I am thankful… 
for the people currently in my life, for my ability to write and connect with a lot of people, a beautiful family, a lovely home, and all of you--who read me.

 3. In the kitchen… 


You can do many other things other than cooking. ;-)


 4. I am wearing… 
 A happy feeling that comes from a day well spent.

 5. I am creating… 

A new novel and it is almost done!

 6. I am going… 
nowhere when it comes to my good friends. Am always there for them.

 7. I am reading… 
three books at the moment, 2 fiction (both romances by British authors) and one non-fiction.

 8. I am learning… 
that sometimes a little distance is a good thing.

 9. I am pondering… 
over whether you will like this post or not!

 10. A favorite quote… 
Many many! You can see the stuff that appealed to me here.

 11. One of my favorite things… 
A cup of strong black coffee

 12. A few plans for the rest of the week… 
Intend to attend the Independence day celebrations, and also to go on a day picnic over the weekend.

 13. A peek into my day…


Typical day goes this way: Call mom. Chat up for 15-20 minutes, sometimes more. Switch off phone. Meditate. Write. Rest. Write. rest. Write, write. Kids come back from school. Cook them a meal, spend time with them, talk to them. Write some more.

A new post tomorrow. This completes day 14 of blog marathon!

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…
