Some more postcards from Lucknow (blog marathon post 27)

Thought I would do a photo post today, as I have some really lovely pictures that I cliked inside the Imamwada during my Lucknow trip.

The steps that lead to the Imamwada

The wonderful Bada Imamwada


 Love the Awadhi architecture.


The beautiful minarets.



The garden inside the compoud of the chotta imamwada.

The mosque against the sunset.

Isn't Lucknow beautiful?

(For those who don't read my blog regularly---I got a chance to visit Lucknow when I was invited for the Lucknow litfest  Click HERE for some snaps that tell you what it was all about)

Do visit Lucknow if you get a chance. There is so much history , beauty and old architecture in the city. And not to mention shopping for chikan work.

I would definitely be going back.
G'nite folks. Till tomorrow.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…
