The book Desire to Inspire and a free giveaway!

I'm super excited to be part of Desire to Inspire ~ Using Creative Passion to Transform the World, Christine Mason Miller's book, and it is getting launched on December 15th, in Los Angeles! In Desire to Inspire, readers will be introduced to twenty extraordinary women - writers, artists and entrepreneurs - all of whom share a unique example of how they create a meaningful life and, in turn, make a positive impact on the world. The stories and examples explore the roots of their desire to inspire and how they manage to pursue their passions in the midst of all the twists and turns life has given them. In addition to a beautiful collection of quotes, stories, and anecdotes, readers are given substantive, encouraging exercises aimed at supporting their own journey towards a meaningful, mindful life.
You can read my previous post about it here. As the days pass and I get myself acquainted with my amazing fellow contributor's to the book, I can help but feel awed to be in such inspiring company. Do pop in to Christine's blog to read the 60 second interviews of all the contributors to the book here including mine :)

This post is to announce the 1st give-away on this blog & all you need to do is put in a comment here. Look further down the images to see what you will win! :) :)

The Cover is here!! You can pre-order your copy from Amazon right here.

This is what you win!! A beautiful inspiring piece of wall art by the phenomenal Christine Mason Miller. I received one such and you can see a closer image of it here.
The last date for leaving your comment is 20th November - sunday night India time. So hurry people & claim your inspirational piece today!! :) :)
Also wanted to tell you that this will be shipped to you directly by none other than Christine Mason Miller & the winner will get to choose which wall art he/she wants :) :)

I can't really figure out what is more exciting. Getting a FREE gift or getting a little SOMETHING from Desire to Inspire.
Either ways I'm smiling :)
