Review of A Hundred Little Flames by Preeti Shenoy

Hi there,

I have been doing a Facebook and Instagram live for the past 3 days. Each day we discuss an emotion/concept related to the book.  (5 days, 5 emotions, 1 book. #AHundredLittleFlames)

Today is day 4, and we will be talking about Friendship. For those of you who want to join in, tune into Instagram or Facebook at 12.00 noon and join me!

Meanwhile I am DELIGHTED as I got my very first official review of A Hundred Little Flames.

I am embdedding the review here, so you can see it  for yourself.

The first review of my new book!! Thank you @adi_bibliophile91 !! Get the book (Link in bio). You can get a signed copy for only four more days. So hurry!! #Repost @adi_bibliophile91 (@get_repost) ・・・ Just like Ayan, the central protagonist of the #book #ahundredlittleflames by #preetishenoy I too learnt a lot about life, kindness, friendships, families and responsibilities from his humble, amiable, understanding and responsible grandfather, Gopal Shankar. A young man who has forever danced to the tunes of his father, has finally found himself, found the path he wants to walk on as well as found courage to stand up against his mean father, after living at his ancestral home with his grandfather, who too have forever been wrongly understood by his deceased wife and his children, even though he did all his duties towards them happily. Indian bestselling author, Preeti Shenoy, has aptly captured the essence of the pure relationship between a grandfather and his grandson through this often heart breaking yet a soul touching story about friendships, sacrifices, responsibilities towards own family and how children neglect their aging parents. She has also portrayed the family issues very honestly and vividly that it is bound to strike with the readers. Strongly recommended.

A Hundred Little Flames. How I signed 3000 copies!

In the past, I have blogged about how I signed 3000 copies of my previous novels, The Secret Wishlist, The One You Cannot Haveand also It's All In the Planets.
(Click on each one to read about the signing of those books)

I have also written aboutwhy I sign my books 'With Love, Preeti Shenoy'. (Do read the post)

It is that time of the year again, when I sign my pre-orders. I have just got back from Manipal, utterly exhausted with knotted shoulder muscles, numb finger tips and a feeling of wanting to sleep for a hundred years. I am bone-dead tired.

I left for Manipal, on 25th which has one of India's finest and most advanced Printing press. To reach Manipal, you have to travel to Mangalore, and then go by road, a journey about an hour and a half. My flight was late, and by the time I reached Manipal it was about 7.30 pm. I checked into the hotel, and knew I had two long days ahead of me.

The next morning, we reached the press at 9.00 am.

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
