Book Launch--It's All In The Planets. Bangalore, Come and meet me :)

In my last post, I told you about the book signings and you also met Aniket and Trish.
I said I would introduce you to Nidhi--well, here she is!




There's so much happening around the book, that I sometimes find it hard to keep my blog readers updated, as the easier options are Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat. (In case you you want to see what I am upto during the day, you can follow me on snap. I post very regularly there, My snap id Preeti.Shenoy)

Despite all the above, like an old lover, I find myself returning again and again to the blog. It's where my heart is, it is where my core is. This is where I began my journey 10 years ago!(Yes, you read that right. It is  soon going to be TEN years since I started blogging and that is a very long time. I plan to do something very special on my 10th year blog anniversary which is coming up on October 22nd. So stay tuned ! )

My book launch started at Ahemdabad. It went SPLENDIDLY.  The audience was a very informed crowd who had read many of my books. Many were blog readers too.
This is what I had written on FB:
 The book tour of #ItsAllInThePlanets started off with a ROCKING note at Crossword Bookstores Ltd. (Mithaklai) Ahmedabad. It was a full-house. A very informed audience who had read ALL my books! The energy in the atmosphere was TERRIFIC, as every person present there will avow. We had so much fun. We talked about many things. I shared the back-story behind each of my titles. And I was moved when the readers brought me gifts! I met my youngest reader there who is just 13. She said she loves my books and got into trouble at school once for reading a book of mine :) (Please don't get into trouble!!) A heartfelt thanks to the readers who turned up in large numbers on a working day, and made me feel so loved! Watch out for many more launches to come!

The book already is a bestseller and was No.3 on Nielsen bestseller list.




The next stop for the book  tour is BANGALORE. Here is the invite



It's on Saturday, 1st October at 5.00 pm, at a lovely bookstore called Bookworm.
Hope to see you all there!

  4. Hello Mam,
    Most of the times when I read your blog I feel emotional (In fact, I read only your blog). You are a wonderful writer. You express the feeling in writing exactly how it feels, In fact, better. Today I also understand that you earned all this with hard work and spending all the great time. You made your journey wonderful and also made many of our lives more meaningful through your writing. Thank you is a small word to say. May god or nature bless you and your family a great health long life.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
