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.

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…
