The Bangalore launch of 'It Happens for a Reason'

As promised in the last post, here are some pictures from the Launch of 'It Happens for a Reason'. The launch event was just fantastic!


The lovely backdrop. It was at Autumn Hall at Hotel Royal Orchid that we hosted the event.


 I posed for a lot of pictures. You will see them soon in the  papers.



 We released the book after a brief introduction. The book was released by Shinie Antony (one of my favourite authors and also the founder of Bangalore Literature Festival) and Chander Kamal Balje the Founder, and Chairman & Managing Director of Royal Orchid Hotels



It was a lovely discussion and we also had a great audience interaction.

 I hate reading from my own book. But I ended up reading a bit as the audience as well as Shinie wanted me to!


 Then I signed many many copies!
We had wine and snacks and some lovely company!

 All my author friends had come. I felt so happy and thrilled to have them there.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
