If you read this blog regularly, apologies for the delay in updates. I began a new photo challenge in May. I did complete the challenge onInstagram. But I found it very tedious to constantly cross-post the same picture here as well. Hence I stopped and dropped off the radar here. I hope you forgive me for that :) If you wish to see the pictures I posted every day, they are all there on my Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/preeti.shenoy/
I also post stories there regularly. Most days, I also post a good morning photo. So join in me on Instagram, to stay connected :)
I have been working hard on my new novel. It will be out later this year, probably in September or October. I am very excited about it and so lost in the world I created, at the moment.
I wanted to share some nice news from my end. I wrote for Dainik Bhaskar for their edit page a few weeks back, and my article was published in 63 editions across 13 states, including the latest Surat Hindi edition and also Surat Gujarati edition which has been published for the last 13 years.
I felt wonderful about this. It is always a writer's dream to be widely read, and to reach a wide cross-section of the world's 2nd largest population is no mean feat! I got many messages (in Hindi!) telling my how much they loved the article.
Thank you for that! धन्यवाद ! This month Conde Nast India has published my poetry! It was a paid assignment. But what made it extra special is that it's a commissioned piece. (which means I wrote it specially for them, as they wrote to me and said they LOVED my poetry and wanted me to write for them)
Conde Nast is an International publisher with offices in New York, London and many other countries like Australia, Germany, France, China, Hungary, Italy, Japan , Korea, portugal, South Africa, Spain etc (to name a few). So you can imagine my delight.
For the month of June, I hope to be posting twice a week.
Doable I think!
Tell me news from your end in my comment box. What's new? What's exciting?
ps: See my new blog header? I designed it myself.
