BNLF--a blogging conference like no other!



Sometimes in life, you have  journeys that you start on, where you never know where they take you. You start on them hesitatingly, unsure of the destination. You keep going as long as you can see the road in front of you, lit with a little torchlight at times and by the sun, at times. There are moments when you doubt what you are doing. There are times when you stumble and wonder if you are lost. But you don't turn back and abandon the road half way through. You keep going. No matter how hard it is. No matter how exhausted you are. Because you are hooked. It's the one thing that you continue doing.

My blogging has been one such journey. I started this blog on 22nd October 2006. It has been nine long years now and I am now no longer the anonymous, unknown blogger that I was when I first began. The journey for me has be beautiful, exhilarating, terrifying, exciting and the magnificent--all at the same time.

And I am going to be talking about this journey at a totally fabulous International blogging conference BNLF 2015 ! (Click on link and scroll down the page for details) . Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden would be a keynote speaker too.

I am really excited about this, as I was one of those who had attended  one of the first meets that Indiblogger had  organised way back in 2008 and what is more had even blogged about it! If you want to travel back in time to read that post, click here.

You can check out my speaker profile here: https://www.bnlf.com/preeti-shenoy
And also read a curtain raiser here.

I shall definitely share with you, pictures from the event.


And yes, thank you for traveling with me on my journey!  You, dear reader, have been a great companion.
And like the movie line goes 'Everybody needs a co-pilot.'
Some, you get to meet  them at conferences like BNLF  :)

  1. Hi Preeti, I have been following your blog since 2008 and respect you so much for all your achievements. I read the free chapters from your latest book and it was amazing. It's exciting and surprising to learn about relationships and how they work. Congrats on all your successes and all the best for all that is to come.
    Cheers,

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.



When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …

Latest book from Preeti Shenoy: Wake Up Life is Calling. Watch the trailer HERE

Hi!

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!


The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…
