A Hundred Little Flames --1 (a novel by Preeti Shenoy)

Hi there,

The cover of my new book A Hundred Little Flames was released in UK, at the Birmingham Literature Festival. The entire event was telecast live on facebook. In case you missed it, you can view it HERE.
It has got 148K views so far!

To celebrate the book, I had asked on my Facebook Author page if you wanted to see lines from the book. I had said that I would start a new project called A Hundred Little Blog-posts, where I reveal one  line  from the book (or a few lines) every single day, for the next 100 days! The response was an overwhelming YES.

So as promised,  here is the first post in the series.

 
 This is how the book begins! :)

Like it? Please share it and show me some love.

Grab the book : http://preeti.io/a100lf

Also tell me in comments if there has been any one single incident which has completely changed your life? (There have been many in my life.)

    2. Well I live in the US and whenever I come to India, I buy all your books as I prefer a Paperback to a PDF Copy :). So it may take a while before I get a copy but I am sure it will be worth the wait :)

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:


You also get access to an EXCLUSIVE facebook writing club, which is a CLOSED group.
3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when gi…

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
