Why We Love the Way We Do. A New non-fiction book on relationships!



Hi there,
Finally finally finally, the final proofs of my next book have been submitted. I have emerged from the nether world inhabited by letters, words, sentences, commas, apostrophes, italics, semi colons, alignment, paragraphs, fonts, a persevering writer and a meticulous editor obsessed with making  the creation as perfect as perfect can be.
Yes, my new book will be out soon!
 As many of you who follow my Facebook author page might know, this time it is a non-fiction book on relationships! I am really excited about this one as I have spent many hours researching  and reading up to write this and I am extremely pleased with how it has turned out. More than anything it answers relevant questions in a non-preachy, easy to relate manner.
Here is the back-blurb that my editor wrote for the book:


Is it possible to tell if it is love or lust? How important is sex in a relationship? Why do break-ups hurt so much? How often should you message a person you fancy? How do you tell if someone is too young or old for you?

 When it comes to relationships, these are the questions that most of us ponder about. No matter how young or old we are, we all want ways to make our relationships better. The best way to do that is to understand what makes us behave the way we do.


 Why We Love the Way We Do is a collection of essays on relationships where bestselling novelist Preeti Shenoy discusses some of those issues and questions that people in relationships or those hoping to be in one, face. Based on her hugely popular columns in a national daily, the topics range from those particular to our modern, technology-filled world like how to move from an online relationship to a real-life one, how to find and keep love online, whether casual sex is worth the effort—to those immortal issues such how men and women communicate differently, how to deal with a broken heart and how jealousy ruins a relationship. 


Filled with wonderful insights, sharp observations, humour, and real-life examples and written in her trademark lucid style Preeti Shenoy brings to this book a perceptiveness about love and friendship that have made her the country’s highest selling woman writer.


And here is the cover which I totally fell in love with!



For sneak peeks from the book, you could follow my Facebookauthor page.
Or you could stay tuned here. I will tell you more about the book in my next blog post.
Till then.
Stay happy, stay loved!
Love
Preeti

  2. That's lovely and amazing. I'm nineteen and most of my friends are committed right now. But I have a feeling that I'll find a person who'll be worth the wait. This book is going to enlighten me on relationships and the idea of making it "ideal" before I turn twenty. Can't wait for it to hit the shelves. Please do visit Chennai this time ma'am. I'll get a hug from you this time. Missed out on that last January. Just tweeted you to say thanks for suggesting Daniel Glatteur's books. Thanks again and I love you so much :) :)

  19. Eager to read your book. The way you express yourself in your books. Your books show how much you love nature. You truly represent woman power. In both your books "Life is what you want to be" and "The Secret Wish List" both are based on women. Well ofcourse "Life" about a girl and "Wishlist" about a married woman. In my view every girl/women should read your books. Both your books would be great eye openers for them about how to face life, live it and live it on one's own terms. Always eager to grab the copy of the latest book of yours.
