The cover launch of Wake Up, Life is Calling: a novel by Preeti Shenoy, and an FB LIVE

Hey there! I had told you in my last post about the cover launch of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling. It's a sequel to  Life is What You Make it.  Here's a short 40 second video which shows you how the launch went! I want to thank each one of you who turned up at the bookstore, and listened to me. I also want to thank each of you who read this blog, tune into my LIVE videos and encourage me so much. Incidentally, I will be doing a LIVE tomorrow at 12.00 noon from my Life is what you Make it Page on facebook. Here's the link: So come tomorrow to the above page, and I will talk to you, realtime. :) See you! Love Preeti
