Meet me in Kolkata and Kochi! (25th and 26th November 2018)

Hey there!

How are you doing? How is life treating you? More importantly how are YOU treating LIFE? :)

It's been a while since I wrote. I was buried in writing my next book--and have now emerged from my cave, much like Rip Van Winkle.

This is a quick post to let you guys know that I will be in Kolkata on 25th November  and in Kochi on 26th November.

I have two sessions at the Kolkata  Tomes Lit fest. For all of you who want to get published, do attend the second session, where I will be in conversation with Amrita Mukherjee.

For the first, Ravinder Singh, Seema Anand and I will be in conversation with Dipankar Mukherjee.

Here's a nice pic of Ravinder and me, clicked when we last met.

I will be in Kochi on 26th November. (I am flying out of Kolkata to Kochi, early morning. Groan!) It is a grueling schedule, as I leave Bangalore (which is where I am based) at 5.30 am tomorrow! (which means I wake up at 4.00 am)
So you can see how punishing it is. But hey, if it means I get to meet my genuine readers and my author friends, I am willing to do it :)

Those of you in Kerala, will definitely be able to read the above!

But for others, I am the chief guest at Mathrubhoomi bookstore inauguration, on 26th at 3.30 pm.
Do meet me at the book store, express Gardens, Kaloor-kadavanthara road.

Needless to say, I will be happy to sign your books (you can bring the copies you have !)

We shall also click selfies :)

If any of your friends are in either of these places and want to meet me, please do pass on this invitation!

ENTRY IS FREE (for both events) and YOU ARE INVITED! :)

Come! I will be so happy to see you.



  1. I have been following you in Instagram and I see your status everyday in the morning. I love to see the flowers and get to know your routine daily. It's inspiring to see how much you travel and still so energetic. Good luck mam for all your travels. Here in Germany winters are too cold and I am unable to step out and hence your good morning status are what makes my morning interesting....I am waiting for your next short read book. Is it coming before new year mam?

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


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

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 …
