Two sketches. Hope they bring you joy! (blog marathon post 28)

The love I get from all of you is an amazing thing. I feel blessed for all the nice things you say to me in my comment box.
On my down days, I re-read the lovely lovely mails which my readers send. I haven't yet responsed to mails. But I promise I will. If you have written me a mail, and not got a reply, please resend.

For today's post, I thought I would share with you two paintings/artwork that I did in my art journal.
My art journal fills me with joy. It is almost a meditative activity. I LOVE filling it's pages, capturing the memories, the mood and anything that strikes me as worth capturing at that moment.

Here's what I did. I made it quickly while she was asleep. It is hard to get her to be still otherwise.



Here is one more. (I placed the capsicum on top of a book, for contrast)



More tomorrow.
Hope you have had a great day!
(I sure did)

  1. They are lovely, especially the first one! :)
    It amazes me when I see you doing lots of things so skillfully. Even I do not watch television but struggle to find time for painting (I am bad but want to practice watercolours. Made a couple of paintings but can't continue) but then, I have a toddler :)

  3. Wow! Beautiful sketches, Preeti! I love the way you have captured your dog's smile in the sketch too. In the second sketch, I love the way you have drawn the shadow of the capsicum! Looking forward to more and more sketches! :-)

  4. Lovely sketch especially the first one madam - I remember the quote "Dogs leave paw prints forever in our hearts". No doubt they are god's best creations. They have got nothing to learn from us humans but we have got everything to learn from them.

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…
