Blog marathon completed! (post 30 of blog marathon)

So, here we are on day 30 of the blog marathon. Those who have been following this blog would know that for the last 30 days, there has been a post every single day! It has definitely not been easy.
I have blogged through a holiday, through the time when I had house-guests and also through birthdays of close friends.
I have blogged when I did not feel like it, when I was unwell, and when my eyes were shutting out of sheer exhaustion.
It's a great sense of achievement to not have missed a single day.

I must make a special mention of  Alka Singla who is a reader who has commented on every single post of the marathon!  A big thanks to you Alka---your comments were really encouraging, and you have completed a marathon of a different kind--which is replying to 30 posts!

I will definitely be blogging. So see you around.

And for those of you who are aspiring to be authors, do pick up the current issue (August 2014) of Cosmopolitan magazine. I have been featured along with some co-authors, and the story covers every aspect of being an author.

That's all for now folks. Thank you for reading me.

I will be back soon :) (faster if you tell me you love reading what I write!)

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…
