Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)


I also had several media interactions. Doordarshan interviewed me for their Iconic Aaj Savere programme. It was great to be on the sets. Here is a picture from the shoot.



Then I had a reading at All India Radio, and it was fabulous to be at their office. It was old world all the way. I posted about it on my facebook page. I am embedding the post below:
Do  click on the pic to read what I said about the whole experience.


Finally, after all these I travelled to Jammu! (With that visit, I can proudly say that I have been to every single state in India)

This was on the invitation of Sahitya Akademi for a writers festival. I read out from A Hundred Little Flames. Here are a  couple of pictures from Jammu.


 Here I am, reading from A Hundred Little Flames




So, as you can see, my life has been a whirlwind for the past many days.

I am now so enjoying being at home, and relaxing.

On 9th (Saturday) and 10th(Sunday) of this month, I will be at various bookstores in Bangalore city.

You can meet me, and get your copies signed. We will also click many selfies :)


Details are in the post above.

If you are in Bangalore, and want to meet me, come! I will be happy to see you.

Leave me comments, once you watch the videos.
As always, I love hearing from you.


Love
Preeti

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 …
