Signing of books and the Grand Launch--It happens for a Reason.

So it has been really crazy, the last few days.

My home was taken over by thousands of copies of  It Happens for a Reason. Yes, the book signing madness was on--full swing. I signed thousand and thousands of copies.

 Worked for about 36 hours non-stop, with short breaks and also a 6 hour break to sleep.



It was just like the book signing last time.

It is indeed back-breaking work.



But posts popping up all over social media, like this one expressing delight at having received a signed copy, makes it worth it.

I am very happy to let you know that the book has gone into reprint, even before the first print-run is out!

To celebrate 'It happens for a Reason' we are having a grand launch tomorrow (13th December 2014,Saturday) at Bangalore. It is an invite only event, and in case you wish to attend it, you can request an invite by sending a mail to the Westland Team : invite(at)preetishenoy.com
We have a limited number of invites up for grabs.

For those of you who have already requested and got invites, I will see you all tomorrow!

Will post launch pictures soon.

Till then ciao--and have a great weekend :)

  2. Hi Mam, I love your writing more than words can explain. I want to buy the book "It Happens for a Reason" with your signature on it and hence bought it on Flipkart in the month of October, but i didn't receive the signed copy. I thought i will be getting a signed copy. May I know what is process of getting a signed copy of your book. I love to have at least one signed copy of any of your books.

    Thank you very much. Have a wonderful day everyday.

  3. Hi Ramesh,
    I think Flipkart was offering to 500 lucky winners and Amazon was offering signed copies for all pre-orders. I don't handle logistics or mail out books individually as it would be impossible for me to do so.
    Most welcome to attend any of my events and I will gladly sign it for you.

I started reading your books after coming across your blog. The first intresting book I read in life was 34 Bubblegums and candies. Now my only hobby is reading books. I read all your books and some of the books by Ruskinbond. I came to know about that author through your blog. I love your writing Mam. You are a wonderful writer and a wonderful person. You help people to understand life better. Your writings has helped me to understand people around me better.

  9. Congrats Preeti. I am so happy for everything happening in your life. I am one of your old readers who still happens to read your blog posts sporadically , when I get time. I decided to spend my little time that in a day while taking care of my of special little boy, on things close to my heart . The first thing that went to the list of things to stop was " taking time to comment". I kept that promise from 2011 breaking that vow, to type few words to say that I am reading and enjoying all the good things happening to you . You deserve every bit of it since you put so much of your heart and worked hard to reach this place. But I tried to wish Purvi on her birthday blog post in 2011 my computer acted so weird and crashed three times after writing a long comment. I took it as a sign from god and stopped then there. I am still going to continue the same policy with comments but I couldn't contain myself when I read this book launch. I am so happy for you dear Preeti. With prayful wishes
    CS

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.
