So peeps, the book is now published! It’s been a long and twisty road for sure. Like anything you do for love, it’s had its ups and downs. But now, if you pop over to Amazon, you can see it in its full glory, take a look inside {love that feature!}, and even purchase it if you feel so inclined.  It’s available on all the Amazons {.com,, .fr etc} so you don’t have to have it sent half way across the world at great expense.

Creative Spark by Tara Leaver; front cover

In honour of this exciting and strange and frankly quite scary moment in my life, I’d like to give away a free copy of the book to someone lovely.

All I ask is that you help me to spread the word about my little art and life manual to your peeps, especially those you think might benefit from a creative nudge. If you use Facebook, Twitter, or have a blog or newsletter, or can think of any other ways to get the word out, please share the link and then leave a comment here.

I’m not going to check or ask you to tell me how you’ve done it; as you probably know I’m not too keen on the whole ‘earn it and prove yourself’ method of entering giveaways. Besides the idea is to get this baby far and wide, not limit its journey by making annoying and restrictive rules. 🙂

Entries will close on Monday 6th May.

The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Rachel Andrews and thank you to all who entered!

book interior

Thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart for all the support and encouragement you have sent my way up to this point. In particular to dear Pauline, without whom this book would NOT be so pretty or so beautifully laid out inside. Fact. I cannot recommend her highly enough if you are thinking of writing a book yourself.

And also to you for reading, for taking the time to come by and say nice things.

Let’s get this show on the road!
