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

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
