Chennai Launch of Why We Love The Way We Do.(Blog mararthon post 17)

So it was a really hectic day for me today.
The day started with my Interaction at IWA. I met women from Japan and US, and some other countries.I was told that my session was great!

Here are a few pictures:
 The IWA president opening the Interaction. In conversation with me is Sandhya Sridhar, who founded Page Turn Publishers. She is also an author. She conducted the session superbly and it was a pleasure interacting with her. Do check out Page Turn books. They are lovely little romances---something like desi version of Mills and Boon. I have just started reading Page Turn books and am liking them.

Here is another picture of me and Sandhya. We hit it off well!




 Signing the  books and interacting with the IWA  members, after the session.

In the noon, I had a meeting with my publishers, who took me out for a lovely lunch at the Taj. We had a wonderful time.

In the evening, I again had an event at Starmark, Avenue Mall. The crowd was large, the interactions were superb, and once again I was told it was a fabulous session. Here are pictures.


Interacting with the readers and signing the books.

See the crowd. There were easily over a hundred people as many were standing (not captured in the pic)



Posing for the media
After that I met one of my closest friends. I have known her since we were both 10 ! I feel blessed for that friendship. She has never missed an event of mine in Chennai. We went out and had a GREAT time.

Am exhautsed now--but very very happy!
Feeling blessed.
(I think we should be grateful for all the things going right in our lives)

Till tomorrow!

  1. Hello Ma'am, i've been following your blogs from a long time, it's just that I have subscribed your blog post to receive it via email and that's the reason I don't get time to comment, though I know a comment feels good, it's tells that people do read and liking what you do. So I just want to appreciate you for your work. I wish you luck for your next book which I read you have finished writing. Also I have got one question for you. May I know how do you main a journal?? Do you maintain an electronic journal using Applications like OneNote etc, or you do that on a paper diary, completely offline. I am fully sure that the paper diary is a better option but in a life of hassle, writing something takes a great amount of time, plus, it's been like an eternity to touch a pen :D feels very inconvenient to writing through Pen. I wanted to know how do you maintain the journal, if it's via paper or a laptop. Thanks a lot for so many good thoughts. I was deleting old emails and found this like you have shared http://elitedaily.com/life/power-of-keeping-a-notebook/1067990/ . It got me thinking that I should also start to document my life. :) Take care.

  2. Dear Iqbal,
    Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. And telling me that you appreciate my work.
    I have two journals. One is an electronic one.
    The other journal I have is the old fashioned pen and paper one. I have a collection of lovely fountain pens.
    I will blog about my journal and pen collection sometime.
    Have a great weekend.
    And yes--do start that journal!
    Love
    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…
