One fine day--- at Chandigarh! (blog marathon post 16)

 This is what I woke to this morning.Slight drizzle, cool breeze and a mood of melancholia.
Love it as I sit gazing out of the window sipping a warm cuppa.



Then I visited three book stores--Capital Book Depot, English book store and Browser book store.


 This is me with Ajay, the owner of the Capital book Depot. Can you spot my titles in the background? :)

I met up with readers at Capital Book store--and it was wonderful. One of the readers was so overwhelmed when she saw me that she cried! I was stunned. I gave her a hug.

I had to meet the press after that which i did and I was exhausted. But I had another event at Whistling Duck Chandigarh. By the time I ate lunch it was 3.30 pm. (I was starving)

As soon as I entered the venue, rows and rows of my books greeted me. I was so happy I had to pose for a picture

The event was wonderful. Members of the Chandigarh Literature society attended it.




I spoke about my journey from a blogger to an author. And there were a lot of questions which the audience asked.I also read out from the book.


I
Signed a lot of copies too.

All in all , an excellent day, though exhausting.

And tomorrow I leave for jaipur. If you have friends in jaipur, do tell them I will be at Crossword bookstore at 6.00 pm.

 I am beat, exhausted, tired,burned out and over taxed.
You can recharge me by leaving me comments :) So please feel free to use the comment box.
G'nite folks--and will blog again from Jaipur tomo.

  7. It is such a relief reading your post sitting here in Muscat. It was so good to see the morning drizzle. And the post also brought back memories of the reading session in Bangalore during the release of 34 Bubble gums... Was it in Bookworms?
    Great going, Preeti

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.

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…

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!
