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.
    Take care.

An easy way to walk more than 5 kms a day (and other interesting things)

This is the first post for 2018.

How has your year started? Mine started very peacefully. I don't believe in partying to welcome the new year. I like to begin it quietly. We have a tradition of lighting the lamp at midnight, and offering prayers of gratitude for all the blessings. This year too we did just that. We spent time together, as a family; I loved and cherished  every bit of it.

Last year, I had started a Reading wall. 
I am happy that I managed to fill up my reading wall, and I read forty books last year! For the most memorable ones, see my last post. This year too, I have put up a similar reading wall.
I have already finished reading two books. I loved them both. One was The Nightingale by Kritsin Hannah. It is easily one of the best books I have read in my entire life.
The other was The Gift by Cecelia Ahern.
Out of the two, I definitely liked The Nightingale better.  A good book should transport you to the world of the protagonists, and you sh…

What 2017 brought me.

We are nearly at the end of 2017.
Looking at back at the year, several proud moments come to my mind.  One of the most recent ones being interviewed by BBC world, with an astonishing reach of over 400 million people in over 200 countries!  The interview was shot at Birmingham, and of course I wore a saree, even though it was freezing. It was a half an hour sit-down, in depth interview. Rebecca Jones interviewed me.

What I found surprising was that the interview was telecast 8 times!


My apologies for not informing my blog readers, in advance about the telecast time---but in my defence, I had announced it several times on my Twitter and  on myFacebook and on myInstagram too.
On my instagram, I keep posting pics of what I have been up to throughout the day, the books I am currently reading, quotes that I like,  interesting sights I find etc---basically anything that catches my fancy. I quite like Instagram stories . So follow me there, and see my stories for some fun stuff.

Where I talk in detail about my writing process

Hi there,

We are already in the middle of January! Half of January has gone by. Have you been keeping up your new year resolutions?  I have!

I read an article recently in Times of India  which said that studies have shown that mid January is the month when couples fight the most, split up the most and in general, feel miserable. This is mostly because the euphoria of a new year has died down, a few resolutions have already been broken, and a kind of weariness after all the festivity has set in. (Click on the link to know more about it)

I have made a reading wall this year too. I am happy to report that I am currently on my 4th book, this year. I have just finished reading The Pearl that Broke its Shell by Nadia Hashimi and I loved it. I did feel it was very miserable and depressing in many places, with absolutely no hope. One gets drawn into the bleakness, wretchedness and despondency and it envelops you. There's no escape till you finish the last word. If you are already in a de…
