A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried a lovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.





If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author page.
I am also embedding it here.




 The book is called A Hundred Little Flames

Here's a close up of the cover.

 
 You can pre-order the book here.

This is what the back blurb says:


Sometimes, a journey back is a step forward.

When 26-year-old Ayan is sent to live with his grumpy old grandfather Gopal Shanker, in a tiny village, in Kerala, he is understandably devastated. What can a sleepy, idyllic village without even Internet connectivity offer a young man?
To make matters worse, Jairaj, Ayan’s domineering father has his own plans and is determined to have his way. Soon, Ayan has to come to terms with the hard realities of life and the blindness of greed as he and Gopal Shanker learn that life can sometimes unravel in unanticipated ways.
A young man, whose life lies ahead of him. An old man, whose life is all in the past. And a few months that change everything. A Hundred Little Flames is a charming account of a relationship across generations and also a meditative look at the issues of old people.
Preeti Shenoy’s foray into new fictional terrain is an absolute triumph!

If you order it straight away, you get a discount of 36 percent as it is the festival sale. It is unlike anything I have ever written!! I can't wait for you to read it.

I am off on a short vacation, with one of my closest friends in the UK.
Will blog again soon.
Till then, take care, and keep smiling!

  5. Congratulations, Preeti! Finally the day has come where you got a chance to release your latest book! I immediately pre-ordered it from Amazon, so just eagerly waiting for November so that I can receive the book and start reading it. So happy that the story is based in Kerala - which happens to be one of my favorite states! Once again, hearty congratulations to you. Enjoy the rest of your holiday in UK!

  9. Hi mam, Hearty congratulations on the book cover launch. It's beautiful and simply matches with the title. This one really seems to be completely different from all the books you've written so far. But then your each book is unique, different and remains one of its kind. So looking forward to read this one too. I'm sure it will be loved by all. Best wishes

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
