Dance away your Friday evening.(post 24)

The whole of today, I have been submerged in work, coming up gasping only for air. One of the things that I am doing is completely re-working 34 Bubblegums and Candies which was my first book. It is almost a new book now! I have added many new stories, completely taken out a few and then edited heavily. I really like how it is turning out now. It will soon be launched with a new cover and a new title. Will update you when that happens.

Also have been commissioned for a very exciting project, very close to my heart, by an International Travel magazine. I love the work I am doing for them. However, I won't be able to tell you details yet.

Then there's my newspaper column which kept  me busy.

After being buried in work for more than 12 hours, I want something peppy, something fun. So here's one of my favourite dance videos :) It's an old one. I have no idea what the words mean, but it sure makes me want to get up and join in.
Enjoy!




Have a great weekend! will be back tomorrow.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
