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..

And the above posts are just a tiny fraction of the ones on facebook! Apart from this, posts all over Instagram and Twitter as well! (If you are on Insta, my id is Preeti.Shenoy and if you are on Twitter my handle is @preetishenoy) The book is already on the best-seller charts. To celebrate it's success we are having a really nice (and exclusive) party on 21st November in Bangalore. It is an invite only event.If you wish to attend, you could request an invite by sending a mail to whywelovethewaywedo@preetishenoy.com We will be closing the guest list soon! That's all for now. Will be back again soon. (No matter how busy I am, I always come back! If you are a regular reader, you know that by now)

 With love Preeti

  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 you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
