  17. Hi Mam,

    Just completed the 20 pages you have shared and can't hold myself to pre-order a copy of this and also blocked a day to completed in a single sitting.
    I am a new fan of your writings and storytelling skill. Recently, I have completed “Life is what you make it” and purchased the “The secret Wish list” and waiting eagerly for your next one ….

    “Life is what you make it”, is truly one of the most beautiful novel I have ever read. In between, I have dared to write a sort of review of it on my blog ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

    Wish you a very Good Luck for the new release “It happens for a reason” !!

    1. Thank you Anil. Will surely read the review. There is also 'The One You Cannot have' which has been getting good reviews, and that was my last book.

  18. Hi Preeti,

    I'm really excited and awaiting your new book release after reading first 20 pages. Each book of yours, story and characters are so closely related to real life that I always find myself associate with an incident or character .:P
    Not only that at end of each book,it always gives us a message i.e hopes and motivation to keep going . Your first book I read was '' A tea for two and a piece of cake '' which was amazing and then i bought all of your books.. My personal favourite is ''“Life is what you make it” and '' THE SECRET WISH LIST '' ..
    Honestly After reading that , I too have listed down my wish list.
    Thanks for inspiring me.. I really hope that one day I can also learn & pen down something creative .
    ( Recently started writing blogs and daily journals )..Please do give us some tips & tutorials for beginners like me... It will really help us.
    Best Wishes !!!!

  19. Oh man!! What superb skill ma'am!! Absolutely spiffing!! My friend gave me this book to read and after reading it I have bought all your books.. I think you are the ONE Indian writer who connects with me.. You don't even know me, but you know me very very deeply, you know my heart even better than I do.. Thank you. You fan #TILLTHELASTBREATH

  20. PREETI SHENOY is the phenomenon!!! Not stupid Chetan Bhagat. Your books are way better than Chetan's. I think in a few years time, you will surpass him as the highest selling Indian author. One more thing- Try to get your books to the rural markets. Good luck.

Preeti Shenoy--Cover releaseCountdown
There's some exciting news for you :) My new novel is releasing in November. The pre-order link will be up on October 7th.

The cover  (and the title) will be unveiled for the very first time in Birmingham UK.
I am a keynote speaker at the Birmingham Literature Festival.



Desi Blitzwhich is Britain's  award winning, leading  Asian web-magazine, has been co-ordinating the whole event, and have been corresponding with me over the last many months to make this happen.




I am very very excited about it. I will be travelling to UK in October. I used to live in UK, andone of my novels features Norwich, the place where I used to live.
(Yes, I will be travelling to Norwich too, later, after the cover release).

You can watch the unveiling of the cover --LIVE by following myFacebook author page. (Hover over 'like' and enable 'see first' to not miss any notification)
You can also follow the page as there will be a lot of fun stuff happenin…

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
