Here it is! My 6th book. Remember I had told you about a conversation that involved a red and blue in the cover in one of my previous posts about the things that happen after a novel is written?
What you see above is what we were talking about and discussing.
The story of this book is a very unusual one. It is about a feisty young girl called Vee, who gets pregnant at the age of 19, out of wedlock and decides to keep the baby. Vee now is 34 and has two very unusual careers. She runs a dog-boarding facility and she is also a gym instructor. Her son Aryan thinks Vee is quite the 'cool mom'. Then, there is Suchi, who is Vee's best pal, almost like a sister as Vee and Suchi went to boarding school together. There is Ankush (who is Aryan's father) and many more interesting characters. Their story (with each other) starts with a car-ride.
And no---am not giving away anything more. I hate spoilers :)
Here is the back blurb of the book:
Like all my other books, this one too draws heavily from real life and of course you would recognise it when you read it.
I am so excited, I can't wait for it to be out! :)
And guess what--as soon as the pre-order links were put up, the book catapulted into the best-seller list on Amazon.
It was No.1 on 'Movers and Shakers'!
Through out the whole of this month, and through whole of November, my publishers have planned a lot of fun activities around the book.
You can follow my Facebook page for updates about it.
We also plan to run a column on this blog called 'Ask Preeti' where you can ask me anything! Every week, my publishers will pick one question (or maybe two) and I will answer them on my blog. Nice? Like the idea?
Like the cover? Isn't it fab, racy, energetic---a lot like the spirit of the book? (And personally I think the guy looks hot :) ) Don't you agree?
Talk to me, in my comment box! :)
