My Indore trip. (with lots of pictures from my talk at Acropolis college)

I have just got back from the beautiful city of Indore. My talk at Acropolis college was a HUGE success. I spoke about my journey and '5 Ways to a Happier You'.
A packed auditorium, giant hoardings all over the college (I was so surprised!), a very large turnout and so much love and respect, that just thinking about it envelops me in this warm feeling.

Was mobbed for signing books!

The hospitality and arrangements made by the faculty and students of Acropolis college Indore was exemplary. I do feel very blessed to have been in their midst and shared those few hours.  The students and the staff---all unequivocally told me that they found my talk outstanding---inspiring, entertaining, and that it helped and motivated them. Cherished memories indeed were made.

If you want to see more pics of the event, you can go here.

After that I got an opportunity to go around the city of Indore. The owners of Readers Paradise which was where the book event was held, were very sweet to me. His son, accompanied me, and we visited many sites in Indore. I am sharing one pic, clicked in front of Rajwada Indore.





I will be making sketches of these places, over the next few days and I will share them on my Instagram art page.

In the flight too I made a few sketches. I shall share them too very soon.

I am just about recovering from a very hectic trip.(I had to leave home at 2.30 to catch the only direct flight from Bangalore which leaves at 5.20 am)
But I feel so blessed, fortunate and happy.

My next stop will be NAGPUR, which will be on December 1st. Block your dates, if you live there.

Will blog again soon.
Till then, stay positive.'
Love'

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…
