The Winners have been picked and announced on my Instagram stories. Here are the names!
This is author L.S. Hilton. She is currently in India with Bloomsbury India, promoting her books Maestra & Domina. I had a chance to photograph her for my EyesForPeople.com series and will you look at those eyes!
I’m currently nose-deep into my copy of Maestra ( it is personalized and signed by the author! ) and I’m planning to be nose-deep into the second book, Domina, soon enough. Meanwhile, the good folks at Bloomsbury India suggested the idea of a book giveaway and I heartily agreed – I love giving away books because I love reading so I assume everyone needs to be pushed to read as well – excuse my enthusiasm but books are AWESOME. I don’t believe in recommending books because what worked for me might not work for you – I believe books come to me when I am ready to receive them and I would like to believe that it’s the same for everyone else.
So, Domina came for you!
Leave a comment on this blog post – with your real name and email please, so that I can reach out to you if you’ve won – and so that Lisa may sign the book personalized with your name! Specific details of the giveaway here :
- There will be five winners chosen at random from the comments posted here.
- The giveaway is open from when this blog post is published ( 1115 hours on 14th June Wednesday, till midnight Thursday 15th of June. Lisa will sign the copies on Friday morning – she has a plane to catch! )
- Only open to residents of India.
- Once we’ve picked the winners, I will reach out to your for your address so that Bloomsbury can courier the copies to you!
Comment away! ( If you follow me on Instagram, you can also leave a comment there – don’t forget to tag a friend. )
Yes, I wore this shirt to match with the Maestra & Domina book covers. It was pre-planned. Shirt is courtesy @145east.
I was commissioned as a photographer by Bloomsbury India to make a portrait of the author for my #EyesForPeople series.

I truly believe that books does come to you. I was never a reader until my sister forced upon with reading books and from then on it never stopped. I try and pick up a book which calls me when I walk around a book store. Also a subscriber of the oldest library in Bangalore gives me that high when I walk into those shelves to grab a book and a tea and quietly read in a corner of my home. Love the picture, her eyes pops out like magic.
How cool! Thank you Vibha!
Whoaaa you replied. ? Hope to grab this book too.
Having read Maestra last year, which my sister got for me. Hoping to win this for a new read. :’)
You never know Anoushka!
This is one of my favourite portraits from your #EyesForPeople series. Hilton’s piercing blue eyes adds such grace to the image. Hope I get to read her writing soon. *fingers crossed*
Woaaah. The eyes.
Hi! I just came across this beautiful blog and I’m in love with it ? I would love to read Domina. My name is Tavleen and here’s my email- firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to reading more of your posts 😀
I think of life as a good book ?. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense .
I really want to make more sense of my life and hope you Naina will help me go through it ?
I fell in love with Maestra and I want to know what happens to dear old Rashers in Domina. I missed meeting L.S. Hilton because I was always at the wrong place at the wrong time. This is my chance to feel connected to ‘the author’ of it all. I won’t mind having another copy of Maestra as well, if it is touched by Ms. Hilton herself.
Naina, your photograph of the lady is intense and exceptional. In fact, as I went though #EyesForPeople, I felt intoxicated with the emotions held within just a pair of eyes. Loved you work. Keep it going!
Books are the only things which can change your mood and can give you different emotions with every turn of a page. I love this picture and those eyes. I hope to win this copy. My name is Shreela and my email id is- email@example.com
Well honestly I have a copy of Domina already and I am loving it so much! I really can’t miss signed copy for sure!
I have heard only good things about this novel, so I really wanna read them! Also I regularly watch Hilton’s sessions on Instagram live and she is so graceful.
Congratulations Madhusree! You’ve won a personalized signed copy of Domina! I have emailed you to request for your address! Cheers!
Reading has becoming a best hobby lately and specially the books. Nothing can beat that experience of turning page and bookmarking that very special page you loved to go back. Be it a fiction or non fiction there will always be a lesson to be learnt or new things to experience from the author point of view. Sometimes we actually end up in the alps of swiss mountain or be the very own village from malgudi days. We even smell the first drop of rain.. Reading is very much experiencing and living with the author or narrator. Cant wait and experience these books.
However gets to pick.. have a great read and enjoy the journey.

Hi! I just realised about your giveaway and looked through your blog and Insta page. They are beautiful!!
I want to participate in this giveaway. Thank you
Hi Naina. Your photographs are brilliant. I watched miss Hilton signing copies at the IGI yesterday on Bloomsbury’s live video and was cursing myself for not living in a metropolitan city. So this opportunity is godsend. Thanks for this. Fingers crossed.
That’s a stunning picture!! I agree with your no recommendations point as books speak differently to different people. We are free to choose to take away whatever affects us most in a book. This is why Sidney Sheldon’s If tomorrow comes will forever be my favourite, despite lacking depth for others. That book is my BFF
The picture is soo good ?
I am always following each & every updates on Bloomsbury Twitter page for her books because I have read the storyline of her book and since I have read it I’m just always pushing me to buy a copy.
This is just superb!
Just then I came across this giveaway and I am praying to win this to read her work.
And the most exciting part is I would get her signed copy but if now I order I’ll not get this.
This is a blessing to get her signed copy.
Fan of yours, want to gift your signed copy to someone special.
No other reason ❤️
Couldn’t have asked for more! :’)
Here’s my email id : firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations Sheetal! You’ve won a personalized signed copy of Domina! I will email you to ask you for your address. Cheers!

Wow the book looks interesting thank you for the opportunity ,I would love to read.Your idea #eyesforpeople is intriguing ,I will check ❤️❤️❤️
Your photography is beautiful. I’m bookish and got to know that you’re giving a book and that is autographed. I couldn’t resist myself to visit your blog. Cheers! Keep clicking and keep inspiring. 🙂
Hi. I am so glad that I stumbled upon this giveaway and as soon as this page opened and the image of the author popped up with that penetrating gaze of oceanic blue, I knew I had to give it a shot. ‘Free’ ‘book’ no two words combined to together can bring such joy as these.? (murmuring silent prayers to win)
Love the portrait! Those piercing eyes! I’ve heard only good things about this series and plan on adding it to my TBR! ?
Her picture is just so beautiful ? And her eyes ❤️ I am taking reading seriously now and trying to read in various genres. Speaking of which, I haven’t read any book from this genre this year. I hope I can win it *fingers crossed*
And yes, your blog is beautiful.
perfect blog for ones who want to see the perfect portraits. The way you click and edit the portrait is just awesome even i’m also trying to click portraits like you. Or i can say that i’m learning wit your portrait clicks. If we talk about above portrait of author. the eyes of her as well as lips are the two things which my eyes see first in this portait. Beautifully captured the emotion of the author. #DOMINA and your picture is soo cool. i mean your top and the shows and bag are soo cool perfect matching with DOMINA.
