A book called "Desire to Inspire"

For sometime now I have been wanting to share a beautiful piece of news with you. I want to speak about Christine Mason Miller, her amazing talent and leadership qualities. I wrote about her and her book Ordinary Sparkling Moments and about being book fairy for the 100 book project sometime back. Christine is back in news with a new book called Desire to Inspire: Using Creative Passion to Transform the world. And to quote Christine "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."
The news is also that yours truly is actually one of these 20 women. When Christine asked me if I will be part of this, I had said yes, without really understanding the magnitude or the magnificence of the women in whose company I would be in. Each of them is a true torchbearer of a new way of living & many directly empower people by coaching, taking workshops and training design entrepreneurs. Do check the FB Desire to Inspire page to see all the contributors. Click on the 'like' button & spread the happy word. The book is now published by North Light Books and available to pre-order from Amazon, (pinch me - this is for real!!) and will be released officially across book stands in November.

Writing this blog has been a journey of inspiration for me and that is the only reason I am part of a beautiful-powerful book like this. I want to thank each one of you who has been reading my blog since I started 4 years back in August, and each of you who joined me me on my journey down the line. I believe it is your good wishes for me which has made this possible.
Needless to say I have pre-ordered my copy and am dying to take a peek into "Desire to Inspire" Do spread the word, check out the pages on Amazon, pre-order the book, or whatever else your heart tells you to do.
