Chance Meetings Cover Is a da Vinci Award Finalist!

I'm thrilled to announce that the cover I designed for Chance Meetings by Madhu Bazaz Wangu was a finalist for the 2017 da Vinci Eye Award! Here's the description from the website: 

"Each year, the Eric Hoffer Award presents the da Vinci Eye to books with superior cover artwork. Cover art is judged on both content and style. The da Vinci Eye is given in honor of the historic artist, scientist, and inventor Leonardo da Vinci."

While our cover did not win, it's still such an honor to be nominated!


In this eloquent collection of stories, twelve different people from different walks of life discover how one chance meeting with a stranger can change a person forever. Drawing from her own Indian-American heritage, Madhu Bazaz Wangu examines the lives of ordinary people facing challenging circumstances—cruelty, prejudiced minds, twisted family relationships, unhappy marriages—and demonstrates how these situations transcend ethnicity and background as interactions with strangers force each character to look deep within themselves, often acknowledging painful truths and long-held secrets, in order to seize control of their own destinies and forge their own paths to independence and happiness. Madhu Bazaz Wangu poignantly weaves a universal message that ties the characters in these stories together, one that applies to anyone who has experienced poverty, jealousy, fear, prejudice, disillusionment, and above all, the feeling of being a foreigner, even within one’s own family.

Chance Meetings is available now in ebook and print formats on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads and visit Madhu's website for the scoop on her Mindful Writers workshops.
