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

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupéry

Forty seven things I learnt.

I turned 47 today. This is a picture clicked today. I received a lot of flowers today.


The older I get, the more grateful I am for everything that I have in my life. Today, I am living my dream. There's nothing more I ask from life!
The path hasn't been easy at all. There have definitely been so many downs. When I look back, I think for every victory of mine, there has been a failure. But I have fought. I am a fighter. I never give up.
Persistence pays.
Age has made me wiser, calmer and very very sure of many things.
Here are 47 things I have learnt along my path. These are things I practise.

1. Say NO to negativity of any kind.
2. People will treat you the way you allow them to.
3. If people really care for you, they will make time; Otherwise they will make excuses.
4. Be grateful for every one who is kind to you.
5. Better to have TWO genuine friends who truly care for you than a HUNDRED friends who aren't so genuine.
6. Fitness is everything.
7.Always have a 'nest…

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…
