Press Event For Decorate In London!

Hello friends, are you doing well this weekend? I hope so! I am packing for a quick trip to London, I fly out tomorrow and back home on Monday so it will be a real whirlwind for sure. Lucky for me, the flight is only 45 minutes from where I live so I don’t have to go that far… My publisher in London has arranged for a lovely press event where I’ll meet journalists and some UK bloggers to show them my new book, Decorate, and discuss it with them… I’m really honored and look forward to it as making connections in person means so much to me and it’s not often that someone throws you a press event, is it?

MY BOOK arrived today!

I’m also going to discuss with my publisher the idea to have a book launch party in London sometime mid April, so if you’d like to come (or host it in your shop?) please email me at holly AT decor8blog.com and I’ll put you on my guest list so if/when it happens, you’ll be the first to receive an invitation. It will be a book party/reader meet up so we can all get together and have some fun because I’m dying to meet so many of you and know that it would be nice to do something like this to get us all in the same room.

So! I will be back on Tuesday to tell you all about the press event and to share some photos… I wish you could all attend with me, but maybe next time if we do a fun party in April. Yay!

See you soon… xo

P.S. That is the US version of the book shown above, to be published my Chronicle in May. I haven’t seen the UK one yet, but I’ll photograph it on Monday!

    Amazing! Gorgeous cover. I spent good three minutes just staring at the said cover and reviewing the details. I just can’t wait for the release here in Canada. Congratulations simply don’t convey all the good wishes I have for you, Holly. You’re a rare talent. I love being a small fraction in the circle that is influenced by the ripples of your great work.

    Dear Holly,

    I love the US book cover ! Will have to wait until May to fully enjoy the book…
    Regarding your UK cover :: it is pictured on the Amazon UK website, if this is the right final cover…?

    I wish i could be in London to come to your great event..!
    Any plan for Paris, though ?

    Have a lovely Sunday,

I hope you will have a party in London so that those who live in Europe will have a chance to meet you there. That’s such a delightful opportunity for your fans. Hearing how hard you worked and how dedicated you were to come where you are (which I learned in your class Blogging Your Way), you must be ecstatic! I cannot wait to hear about how the press event went!
