Is there anything you would like me to teach you? Tell me in my comment box!

Today, I did an Instagram live. Lots of readers interacted with me. It was an 'ask me anything' session. Readers asked questions, and I answered in real time. You can watch it on my Instagram handle for the next 24 hours.

Many readers  wanted to know, how to write a story, how to get published, how to start a blog etc. Meanwhile, I also got a mail from Skillshare asking me to start a class. Serendipitous or what? (Earlier, I was approached by Udemy too. )

I am considering it seriously. (but it will be only in the second half of the year, as I am busy writing my 10th book, at the moment). I would love to know what you would like me to start a skillshare course on? Anything that you want me to show you how to do? Do tell me in my comment box on this post. Those of you, who are reading this in your inobox, on email, please head over to my blog, and leave a comment there. That way, I will have all your suggestions in one place, and it will give me a better idea.
I do want to create a course/class which would be useful to you, and which you would love to learn.


I myself, am doing a few skillshare courses, and I find the ones I am doing  wonderful. One is a drawing class by Yuko Shimizu and the other is a sketchbook class by Ohn Mar Win. I am also doing another one on Urban sketching by Juila Henze.  I have also saved many more classes. (What can I say? I am a huge nerd and I love learning).

You can choose whatever classes you like. ! The whole idea is to find something that appeals to you. Do it, only if you find value in it and one which suits your skill sets. (Please don't do the  above classes just because I am doing them. I don't earn any commission for it!)

Alright folks, I am off to read.  But before I go, I thought I would share my today's sketch with you.




Nice? :) I was pleased with it too.

Don't forget to tell me in my comment box, about what you would like me to do on skillshare.

See you again tomorrow!

  1. So many things to learn from you mam. But if I have to pick something then it would definitely be a course on writing novel which gives insights specially on structuring the novel into chapters. I feel struck here. Any book suggestions that covers this aspect mam or may be a tip or two from you for the time being!

    That painting of apple is amazing mam.

  5. Hello Madam, I think you must do a course on "Time Management".
    The best thing about your blog is that I learn something new now and then. Honestly, I have never heard about skill share and Udemy. (May be, I am living under some rock). I checked both the sites and was amazed!
    Thank you so much for being an inspiration to many!

Latest book from Preeti Shenoy: Wake Up Life is Calling. Watch the trailer HERE

Hi!

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!


The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.



When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …
