Oh my loves, I have something really delicious for you today!

This week marks the one year anniversary of my book baby being out in the world – one whole year! Can you believe it? To celebrate I’ve got some fun posts lined up for this week, starting with today’s Big Book Giveaway.

One of the most amazing things to have come out of the blogosphere in the last few years is a creative community of women sharing their lives and talents with the world. Whether it’s blogs, books, courses, coaching or art, I’m constantly inspired by these women and try my best to add something worthwhile to the pot, too. So rather than just giving away my book (how boring!) I wanted to put a spotlight on the books that have been birthed out of this community and give them away too. I reached out to my book-writing peers and they all replied with a resounding hell yeah! so here’s what we’ve cooked up…

For a chance to win one of the 21 26 beautiful books listed below just follow the instructions at the end of this post. BUT HERE’S THE BEST BIT! There’ll be one extra winner who’ll get bookbombed — one copy of every book will arrive through his or her door — bam!

Can you imagine it? 26 books all for you. 26 books to inspire and delight. 26 new book friends to be made.

If I wasn’t running this giveaway I would SO be entering it :)
