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  the Secret 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..

  2. It is so nice of you to dedicate all your time to your fans and that's why you have so many of them. Not only because of your best sellers, because you are more of a close friend than an Author. No matter how sick you were in the past, it didn't stop you from signing your books this time and I know that you will continue to do this for many years to come. Started reading your book and just can't wait to finish it so that I can give you my full review. Thanks again, Preeti!

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…
