Do I tell you? A poem. (Blog marathon post 8)



Do I tell you?

Do I tell you about the way your eyes lit up,
With a hundred questions unasked, unanswered.
Or do I tell you about happiness multiplied manifold
With precious stolen moments, cherished, treasured.

Do I tell you about the words unsaid, but perfectly understood,
Each nuance amplified like it was on a giant billboard.
Or do I tell you about the million racing thoughts,
Whirling dervishes, a thousand stories enacted untold.

Do I tell you about the placid lake, blueness unbound,
And the sun that played truant when the clouds danced.
Or do I tell you about racing heartbeats uncontained,
Gratitude, sheer contentment and bliss, triply enhanced.

Do I tell you about   the cherished memories made today,
For a while ,when the world outside stayed across the boundary.
Or do I tell you that narratives are only for prose
And a perfect day like this was nothing but sheer poetry.

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…
