A letter from France, Bruce Dickinson and BNLF 2015

Something lovely happened the other day. I got a nice email from a reader in France.

I share it below with her permission:(click to enlarge)


It always feels wonderful when people from a different culture are able to relate to my writing.

Another bit of news from my end is that I will be a keynote speaker along with Bruce Dickinson (yes yes--the same Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden!) at Mumbai as a part of BNLF 2015
Here is my profile on the site: https://www.indiblogger.in/bnlf/preeti-shenoy
You can find all details on the site--read their FAQs too.

Other than that I have been BURIED under the second edits of my book. I had mentioned what writing a book involves.  So you can imagine how it has been for me. I emerge from my cocoon only for coffee/chai breaks. I am quite excited about this book, and will give you details soon.

Guess what I will be doing over the weekend? Of course you guessed it---finishing my edits. Sigh. Writer's life.
But I am not complaining. I really am not :) One has to endure the discomfort of pregnancy to have a baby!
Will post again soon and next time nothing about the book--I promise :)

What are your plans for the weekend? Share with me in my comment box so I get some vicarious pleasure!

  2. I would just mask the email address in the pic for the sender, just avoid unwanted attention to her.

  10. Hii I feel soo proud of u. Your books I don't know what to say. But all your books are close to my heart. I know you n even no one in this world will believe this fact that tha "Ankita"" of "life is what you make it" or ""Anjali" of "The one you cannot have" are similar to me. I can feel the pain the joy each and every emotion. I have gone through all these things. I just want to thank you for your books. Just thank you.I wish you will soon reply to my message. I want to share my feelings with you as a reader. N once again thanks for your good books
    N m looking forward to read your new stories. Eagerly waiting for you new book.

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…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
