Signing of 'Why We Love The Way We Do' and party time!

Whenever a new book comes out, the stress of it makes me fall ill. There is just SO MUCH that goes into a book, which a reader usually knows nothing about. I have written in the past on what it takes to write a book.

I have also written about how I signed 3000 books for 'The One You Cannot Have' and for  theSecret Wishlist  before that.
 I had done this last year too when 'It happens for a reason'came out.

This year was no different. Here are the pictures of signing the books:



Like the last few times, i signed for  about 10 hours non-stop.


And it continued on the second day.

The joy  expressed by my readers at getting signed copies is unimaginable.  There are posts popping up all over my social media feed, thanking me for signing.

Thanks Preeti shenoy... Got sigend copy..

Session at Kindle Litfest X and a free booklet !

Thought I would share with you, the video recording ofLitfest X, which was a virtual litfest, organised by Amazon's Kindle. I am in conversation with Kumaar Bagrodia, who is the festival director.
I had a great time, interacting with everyone who logged in that day. (People could login and interact with me, real time). It was fun and I enjoyed myself.  The first three chapters of my new book Why We Love The Way We Do, was released during this session.

If you want to download  the free booklet, (there's a signed photo of me in there as well), here is the link:

I am really excited about this book, mostly because I have spent hours and hours, talking to people, researching stuff about relationships, pondering about them asking questions, and discovering and learning many things. I have quoted real-life examples, studies, what the experts say. The short essays give us answers to many pertinent  …

BNLF--a memorable event!

So, I had told you in the last post about BNLF--an international blogging conference, where I was a keynote speaker along with Bruce Dickinson.
I have just got back home---and am revelling in the hangover of a BRILLIANT event. i enjoyed every moment spent there, and my talk was superbly received too.
You can see some of the reactions from my Twitter screenshots that I  am sharing here. (There were many many such! But you get the idea. I am not sharing all of them.)





Then there was my meeting with Bruce Dickinson. We had a nice conversation, in the green room just before he went on stage, as he was speaking after me.
Here is a pic!

The journey for me, from an unknown blogger to a best-selling author has been a dream come true. Conferences like these give me an opportunity to connect with like-minded souls.

I met so many new people, made so many friends and came back, richer, happier,…
