New Book Releases today. It's All In the Planets

'There's a new book by Preeti Shenoy,'
'Oh is it? What's it called?'
'It's All In The Planets.'
'It's not yet there in stores?'
'It is now. I have all her books. and this one I am waiting to read.'

This is an actual conversation I overheard this morning, between two women waiting in the bus-stop, while I was walking my dog.

I smiled to myself and walked on. Then  I met someone , a girl who was walking to work, who recognised me.
'Are you Preeti Shenoy?'
'Yes'
'M'am--I can't believe it is you.'
'Okay--it is me.'

Then I get home.
We are having idlis for breakfast, and I am making the chutney, while the spouse is checking some messages on his phone.

Me: 'Hey, the book releases today.'
A pause.
Complete silence.
And then 'Is the chutney done yet?'

C'est la vie.

  6. Mam you are amazing. You know how to make people visualise what you are saying (i mean what you are writing). I think you are books cant be made in to movies as they cant be visualised better than your writings.

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.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
