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

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.
