Waiting for love.

Though I had completed the drawing challenge, yesterday I hadn't got time to post it on the blog. I had posted it on my Instagram Art page though! So, in case you were waiting for a post from me, I apologise for not updating it yesterday.

Here's the portrait I made yesterday, as a part of Rise and Draw as well as the May drawing Challenge, where I paint one  picture every single day.  These days, since I am also taking part in Rise and Draw, I get a photo, and an instruction in my inbox every single day!

Here's what I painted yesterday:



And here's what I made today:



For today's portrait, we were asked to illustrate the background, and relate it to the model. To me the model appeared pensive and kind of sad, as though waiting for something or someone. I am fond of Avicii’s music, and I felt sad when he died. Thought this was a nice way to pay tribute to him. The background has words  from his song “Waiting for Love.” I enjoyed making this one, and am quite pleased with it.

In case you haven't watched this version of the  video of this song, stop reading right now and watch it!!




Beautiful and heartbreaking isn't it?

Tell me in comments, what you think---about my portraits as well as my video.

Tomorrow--a new drawing.
Till then, just take a moment to feel thankful for all the things going WELL in your life.
Life is so unpredictable.

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 …
