Your chance to get published! 'Write India'

Hi there,
How have you been? My last post was from Goa, where I had been struggling for Internet connectivity and I had said I would share some pictures.

After I came back, I go caught up like crazy in finishing up next book. (Yes!! It is done! I am euphoric!) By then, it seemed too late to share the vacation pictures. If you want to see one of them, I have posted it on my FB page. (click to view)


Remember sometime back I had told you all about an ad that I had shot for?

Well this is what it is about!!

 Write India" is your chance to make your dreams of getting published come true. Eleven authors (Amish, Chetan Bhagat, , Preeti Shenoy, Ashwin Sanghi, Ravi SubramanianTuhin Sinha, Ravinder Singh, Durjoy Datta, Madhuri Banerjee, Jaishree Misra and Anita Nair) are working alongside the Times of India to find eleven budding writers. The eleven short stories selected will result in a book published by the Times of India. To participate log on to http://www.toi.in/writeindia

  3. Mam its so nice of you and TOI to give aspiring ones a gateway but isn't writing a self art. I mean how can an author write on your thoughts and visions. Just shared it, i know even you would've liked to write on the characters you've given birth too :). I am very happy by your wishes only to make my dreams come true :):)

    1. Kindly note that I am only a participant in this just like you. It is TOI who has come up with all terms and conditions. And you are more than free and welcome to give birth to your own characters and approach publishers with your work!
      This is a contest and it is TOI who will make the selection of qualifying entries and send some to me ANONYMOUSLY, from which I will pick. So I will directly not have a say in the matter nor will I be able to influence outcome.
      Good luck!! :)

Preeti Shenoy--Cover releaseCountdown
There's some exciting news for you :) My new novel is releasing in November. The pre-order link will be up on October 7th.

The cover  (and the title) will be unveiled for the very first time in Birmingham UK.
I am a keynote speaker at the Birmingham Literature Festival.



Desi Blitzwhich is Britain's  award winning, leading  Asian web-magazine, has been co-ordinating the whole event, and have been corresponding with me over the last many months to make this happen.




I am very very excited about it. I will be travelling to UK in October. I used to live in UK, andone of my novels features Norwich, the place where I used to live.
(Yes, I will be travelling to Norwich too, later, after the cover release).

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…
