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.

  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

Five rules I broke which changed the way I think

There are several rules that society imposes on Indian women (and men too.). Some of these rules are so  accepted, that nobody questions them. It is how we were raised. It is a part of our culture. It is just how we are.
I have always been a person who questions things. Even as a child, I was constantly questioning why things had to be the way they are. My mother, a strict disciplinarian would not encourage it, and there was no way out, other than just obeying whatever rules she laid down. In retrospect, it helped instill a sense of discipline in me.

In contrast, with my father, I could question everything. There was nothing which was taboo or forbidden. At the age of nine or perhaps ten,  encouraged by my father, I had read books like  'I'm OK, you're OK' by Thomas A Harris, and we would discuss things and analyse our conversation in terms discussed in the book. (transactional analysis)

My father did not believe in following anything blindly. He encouraged me to thin…

How I wrote eleven books: A true story of a very personal journey.

It was on this day twelve years ago that my father passed away. There was no warning, no illness, no ailments--nothing. He was alive one moment, chatting and talking to my mother. He had walked 5 kms , his usual  distance, that morning. He had meetings lined up for next day. He was to visit me in Pune, a week later. Instead he leaned back in his chair, while watching TV, closed his eyes and died.

The death changed my perception about everything. It altered forever the way I looked at life. It affected all parts of my being--my health, my daily routine, my philosophy, my core belief system. My father was my strength and my rock. I used to talk to him every day. My day was not complete, unless I had a discussion with him on the phone. He had a curious mind, and we used to talk about everything  in the universe. When he died, a part of me died with him.

 I had started this blog In October 2006,  forty five days after his death. I did not think about what I was doing or how long I would …

The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)






I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.



So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:



Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!

Get it from your local bookstore or order online and pay cash on deliver:  http://preeti.io/trb
