A happy memory (blog marathon post 13)

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
                               ---Washinton Irving


“I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”
                               ---Mitch Albom






My mother is visiting me these days. We had a great time today.
One of the greatest joy in lives, is when you can take your parents out and buy them lots of things, like they used to, when you were a child, and watch their faces light up in joy. And that is exactly what i did.


And then, we posed for a selfie :)


I feel so blessed.

If you are fortunate enough to have a mother, go call her today. Tell her about your day and ask her how hers went. And if you live in the same town as her, go visit her. Make great memories and click happy pictures.

Mothers are always special. Cherish them and love them.
Even if you don't always understand them :)

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
