34 Bubblegums and Candies. Behind the scene.
My first book (yes, I am going to be a published author!) will be out soon. It is in press right now. The book will be available at all major bookstores in
The book is based entirely on my blog posts. There are many posts which have been adapted, and many new ones as well. It has been a long journey of two years. I started the blog to overcome my absolute shock, deep grief and my broken heart, when I lost the person who meant the world to
“Never tell anyone that you're writing a book, going on a diet, exercising, taking a course, or quitting smoking. They'll encourage you to death.” Said Lynn Johnston. I agree with the quote.
Another one said "Poore Indian Publishing Industry ko tera hi intezar tha--ki tu likhegi aur ve publish karenge. Tu likh jo tujhe likhna hai."(As though the whole Indian publishing industry is waiting for you to write and they publish it. You write whatever you have to.”)
Imagine pouring a bucket of ice-cold water on a person who is fast asleep. That is exactly how I felt .To say that I felt discouraged is putting it mildly. Very mildly. But fortunately for me, hope came in the form of two other good friends, (to be specific Ajay Chauhan (That's his pic on the left) and Niall Young) and Satish Shenoy, my husband. They really believed in me and my writing. I held on to their words like a drowning person holds on to the last bit of wood floating. And I desperately wanted them to be right.
I completed my manuscript and then began the long process of finding a publisher, researching about the Indian publishing industry, writing to them, correspondence, phone calls—waiting, waiting and more waiting. I could not believe it, when I got a ‘Yes’ from two publishing houses—that too well known ones! I decided to go with Srishti publishers (who have brought out many well known titles like ‘Anything for you M’am, ‘Funda of Mixology’ etc.)
It was only after I signed the contract that I told my other friends. Most were thrilled. And some were—well, forget it. It’s not worth writing about.
Ajay did a
Satish was so very supportive. He held the fort down (making dinner after he came back from work, reading to the kids, ironing their uniform, doing studies with them, sorting out their fights) while I huddled over my computer, writing, re-writing, editing, re-thinking, contacting people and doing a million other things that go into making of a book. I feel blessed to have him as my husband.
K.S. Narayanan (To us, he is just KS) who is a good friend to Satish as well as me, helped in reading, refining and also giving a ‘third person’s view’, as did Ajay and Cherrisa.
Rohit Srivastwa,(thats his pic on the right) another good friend, sat up for three consecutive nights along with me, till and put together my website. Apart from his regular job and his Clubhack activities, he is now also the Technical Director of CYG (Common wealth Youth Games) and is one really busy guy. The only time he could spare was after , when he finished his official work. He has so much of patience and explained to me many technical things. (I have no idea about web designing or registering domain names, hosting it or anything else) He also gave me useful links that helped to execute a few things I had in mind.
When you log on to the site, on the right side, you will see an option asking you to ‘Join the Circle’. Please do click on it, and it will take you to the ‘Bubblegums and
In the acknowledgements section of the book, I have thanked my blog-readers and my online friends who cared enough to leave comments and read what I wrote, and connected with me. Your words meant a lot to me.So much that I have written a book.
A heartfelt thanks.

I am traveling for work and will be reaching pune only on 7th evening.
Preeti, doston ke liye kuch bhi, anything for friends :)ReplyDelete
Best of luck for your book.
congrats... shall catch you on Residency Road :)ReplyDelete
HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS!!! It's a great feeling that someone i've known(not for long though) is going to be an author whose books are gonna be read by a wide audience! Kudos to the publishers who found the writer in you awaiting for a medium!ReplyDelete
Count on me to get that book!
Few months back,last Dec on your b’day to be precise,when I wrote you a testimonial where I mentioned that I’d definitely get a copy of your book when you publish it down the line, honestly I never had an inkling its gonna happen so soon!! .. and I’m really happy for you. This is truly a fantastic achievement PS :)ReplyDelete
I’ve said this before,but I’m saying it again. Beyond your happiness, PS, I can imagine how thrilled Satish must be to see you doing those book launches and reading sessions .. how excited Atul and Purvi must be telling their friends that their mom has now authored a BOOK :) .. your friends and colleagues (not to miss out bloggers like me who so blissfully wade thru the different posts in your blog) is gonna be thrilled to have a copy of your book in hand .. your mom who once trained you how to read and write is now about to read YOUR words in print in a BOOK authored by YOU. And above all, your dad who has guided and inspired you to grow into what you are today is going to be so proud of you.
Your book is gonna bring such a lot of joy to so many people around you, and may you find yourself giving this thought the place of honour as you get set for the launches and reading sessions PS :) All my best wishes! Hearty congrats once again :)
Finally, you broke the news.
Catch me seated in the front row, third from your right.(Crossword,Residency Rd.)
Heartfelt congratulations. Its great to have someone to look up to. btw, what is the significance of 34?ReplyDelete
This is wonderful news. Though I am new to your blog (through Desi Pundit), I am so happy for you. It encourages all bloggers also in knowing that blogging is important and can lead to great things! Thanks for inspiring us all! Can't wait to read your book. Hope I can get it in USA!!ReplyDelete
now you HAVE to do "fraaandshiop" with me coz I don't have any celebrity friends (that is, if you leave out my friend pt who once ate 26 gums at the same go and Aaj Tak featured him for 10 mins)
No seriously, I am eagerly awaiting the release of the book...Hope I am in Bangalore at that time..
Crossword at ICC is a great place to start. Used to be my fav hangout while I was there...
You know, the Direcotr of my B-School had his book launch there and that book was a runawa..ok walkaway hit :-)
(Am I helping or...)
Joined the site, could not believe that it was a social networking site in itslef!! Great job...
Harish: Yes--you are helping.A LOT :)Thanks for joining.ReplyDelete

Huzefa:Coz--life begins at 34 ;-)Well--there are 18 candies and 16 bubblegums from my life, as explained in the preface.
Nikhil; ok :-)And THANKS :-)

Pinkdogwood:Thanks so much! If you like my blog, you will surely like my book.ReplyDelete
SMM;yes--Thanks for that :)
How wonderful! I'm very glad you weren't discouraged by the first setbacks, if we may call it that, and kept going until you made it. It was meant to be! :)ReplyDelete
I like the cover and I'm sure the content is of the quality we're used to here.
And this post reminded me of the thank you notes in the beginning of the books ;)
This is such an accomplishment! Awesome!
Hearty hearty congratulations once again. Wish you all success.ReplyDelete
:-) Feels so good right now :-)ReplyDelete
Sach me m so jealous...but so proud too!!
c u in bangalore!
Congratulations !! You are truly a talented and gifted artist. I am so glad that you were able to get this done despite the ice water bucket throwers :-) i guess you will always find people ready to dampen your spirits, moods and talents. You overcame all of that, and with the help of good friends made this possible. kudos to you !!! i coudln't be happier. I will look for your book and spread the word.
Wow... Congrats! You know Preeti, however much i despise the books written by Chetan Bhagat for their sub-standard quality, i do thank him in the larger scheme of things. The wild success he received literally opened the eyes of dozens in the indian publishing business who, like an old boy's network, were uncreatively programmed to promote stereotypical works and authors benchmarked by the Bookers and Pulitzers. This phenomemon has certainly helped the Indian reading enthusiasts like myself who love to experiment with new authors but seek quality.ReplyDelete
I look forward to picking up your title on my next trip to India. Best wishes...
i can't believe i typed everything and it didn't get through...ReplyDelete
ok, ever since you told me , i've been extremely excited and crossing my fingers that all goes well...i must confess that my first thought was of your father and the happiness he would have felt...but you know, perhaps it was his guiding hand which pulled you up, when the naysayers tried to drag you down...
best wishes as always from the heart...i do wish i could be there but i guess i'll read the book and be happy..:D
and the book cover is very pick-me-up...
way to go...!!!
CONGRATS! :D i know ive already congratulated you...but then an achievement like this deserves to be congratulated again n again! :)ReplyDelete
congrats congrats congrats!!!
I really dont need to tell you anything. The way you have connected with your readers speaks for itself. You are a very good writer but even more than that, a wonderful human being an that shows through.... All the best for your future...........And yes, Dont forget us after becoming a celebrity...:)
Congratulations...So happy for you. I'll definitely be there in Bangalore and I have already confirmed it in the Inner Circle.ReplyDelete
I also managed to read all the posts that you had linked to this post. Have a mixed feeling now. Your dad will be proud of you and will bless you wherever he is. All the Best!!!
Preeeti!! Congrats .. ! really happy for you .. !! Bangalore bloggers, how about another meet at Crossword ??? Preeti, I will be definately there.. dont know if we would be able to meet tho.. you will be a busy woman :)ReplyDelete
The next three months probably is going to be one of the most exciting period in your life..it would be the time when your hard work bears fruit...wishing you all the best and my prayers...enjoy the ride as much as possible..am feeling so happy for you!:-)ReplyDelete

All the best for the launch..Wishing u life's best on this wonderful occassion..
Wow! This post made me a little sentimental! Good luck with the book! Looking forward to reading it!ReplyDelete
Preethi, really, really happy for u.ReplyDelete
U deserve the best.....[Nancy raises her glass to touch imaginary preethi's imaginery glass] "Here's to the book being a runaway best-seller:-D"
Yep they did....ReplyDelete
But guess what.... I have asked my friend to be there and pick up a copy at the time when u r there for launch in Pune Crosswords... tomorrow..
If you are reading this I am expecting an autographed copy for my collection!!!
Thank you for the mention i am honoured that you consider me to have encouraged you in such a valuable way...It's a really exciting time for you and believe me, i feel it too..I just wish I could be there for the launch. I have always thought your writing had a 'special something' which lifts the reader and has the 'feel good' factor whilst at the same time challenging and exorting one to dismantle preconceptions and smallmindedness.ReplyDelete
So ...I wish you every sucess with the launch and promotion!!!
Congrats once again!! Am surely gonna be there at crossword on Oct 10th :) Need to book a seat for myself soon! ;-)ReplyDelete
Your blog is so well written that am sure the book which is an extension of your posts is going to be a big hit! good luck!
Wow PS...thats amazing news. I can just try to imagine the excitement and the butterflies fluttering around ;)ReplyDelete
congratulation and all the very best.
Waiting for the book :)
Meira:yeah--I need a net! :-)Thanks!ReplyDelete

Prats: Thanks--see you on OCTOBER 4th, not tomo :-)
Reflections:Let it keep running and not runaway! :P *Toasts* Thanks!
Wannbewriter: thanks so much.yes--even i am a bit emotional at the moment--the joy is tinged with a bit of sadness.Irony at its best.

Mathew:Thank you so much!!

Varun:Thank you so much..Yeah i guess dad would have been proud.
Pranay: thanks so much.Of course I wont forget my blog readers!! My blog is still important to me.!
Sunshine:Thanks SO MUCH :)
Suma;Thanks my friend
Manasi: If you find Chetan Bhagat substandard, i think I'll curl up and die :) I quite like his way of writing.I don't care what the literary critics say.It was only when i started writing a book that I realised how difficult it is to produce 35000 words.I hope my writing meets your quality accreditation! :-)Thanks ManasiReplyDelete
Ranjini:Thank you so much
Prakhar:yes see you--but why jealous!!
Devil Mood: Well the acknowledgement list at the beginning of the book is even longer! There is no way the publisher was going to put photos of my friends--the least i could do was acknowledge their efforts openly on my blog!! :)

Someday I'd proudly tell my relatives n all..
"Who? the famous author PS?Oh yaa..she is in my friends list"..
Trust me..that day is not faraway:)
For the time being just a heartfelt CONGRATS..!!
you must be feeling like you are on cloud nine! and you deserve too! This is such a great achievement and (whoever said you couldnt do it, obviously didnt know you)!
This is one of those times I wish I lived in India, so I could attend your launch! But nevertheless, GOOD LUCK, have a blast with it.

i want to win ur book
pl be quick about the contest
That is a wonderful news. It will be really great to meet u. Just tell me when and I will be there.ReplyDelete
I have been a Lurker here for some time now. While it was primarily because your comment form doesn't have the name/url option , it was also due to some of the reasons for Lurking that you mentioned in your post about Lurkers.ReplyDelete
I love the way you write and can't wait to get my hands on your book. And I really loved this post coz it gives us a window into the birth of a book, which doesn't really come around often. I dream of writing a book somewhere down the line, and this post fuels and encourages my dream.
As I said, I Lurk here normally, but I really wanted to comment on this so much that I did. Since the name/url option isn't there, I am commenting with my blogger account where I do not blog. I blog at raoufalution.co.nr. A book writer visiting would be a dream, of course. ;)
I'm very much happy for you and I wish and believe that your book will walk off the shelves.
Heartiest Congratulations on your book!ReplyDelete
I have just one word for the people who didn't show the trust and doubted you for writing a book and that word is 'Duh!!'
Eagerly waiting for the book. Any plans for having a book reading in Delhi? If you do, please do tell..I will come 100%
hi, i ll come for the bangalore one. poojaReplyDelete
Wow Preeti, Congratulations. You have achieved what every blogger's dream would be. And with the kind of perseverance and passion you displayed, definitely you deserved this goal best.ReplyDelete
Putting your achievement as a goal is not in anyway meant to see this as an end to an endeavour, its only a beginning to many more achievements to come.
We need people like you Preeti, keep it up. CONGRATS again.
I was waiting for you to announce it here...so I could start showing off to my friends :D.ReplyDelete
It is so exciting...and i'm not going to miss the event here in Bangalore for anything...
will book my place right away...but I'd like to buy the book.
I know winning it is fun, but buying a book and that too by an author you know...no way am I going to take away that small bit of excitement.
Congrats and All the Best!!!!
Waiting to catch up with you here

Congratulations Preeti. I have spoken to you a couple of times and followed your blog diligently. And I am not ashamed to say that I have been very very impressed by you. To write a book now only seems to be next logical step.ReplyDelete

Please lemme know, if this would be a problem in any way!?
Here is the link - http://veena-mypicsandstuff.blogspot.com/2008/09/random-points-to-be-noted.html

Seems like missed a lot of action................ReplyDelete
we live vicariously thru people like you.
Our greatest moments of despair are instrumental in bringing out the best in us. Even though family can't be substituted with anyone else, I would want you to know that someone out there, whom you don't even know, cares about you and wishes you all the best in each of your endeavours.ReplyDelete
Stillness speaks: Wow--thanks!--what a nice thought U conveyed-may i know your name?
