Decorate + decor8 on Facebook!

March 7, 2011

I got up this morning and felt so inspired to begin a new week… and I’m starting to feel really excited about my book launching on March 25 in the UK — I can’t wait! I have a Facebook fan page for Decorate and I’d love it if you would join because I’m not only sharing book contributors and their websites each day until the launch, but I’m also going to start listing upcoming book tour dates. So far, I have a book launch party secured in London on April 13 (I’ll tell you where soon) and a book signing and blogger meet up scheduled in Amsterdam on June 25.

I’ll also be speaking at the Blogher/Creative Connection event in St. Paul (please come if you can!!!) on September 15 and doing a book signing there that weekend, and on Sunday, September 18th I’ll be in Berlin speaking at a huge event for small business that Etsy is hosting called Hello Etsy. It feels good to be booking dates to get out there and meet lots of you – I can’t wait.

To stay in the loop please join the Decorate Facebook Page and if you’d like, the decor8 Facebook page too — I’m posting stuff regularly on both fan pages for the book and the blog. :)

Here’s to getting out there to mix +  mingle and sell some books – yay! These are exciting times for sure.

P.S. Thank you Casasugar for the great review!

      @Shereen that’s great!
      @Reyna Yay, you will definitely see me if you are going to the dinner on the 15th – I’m speaking.

    Great idea to have a fanpage for the book! I am so excited to get my hands on a copy. (p.s., I had posted a few weeks back that I was selling my little home and was sad/happy about it because I put so much love/joy/fun into decorating it! Well it sold this weekend! Yay! Now need inspiration for new home – hope your book comes out soon in Canada!)

    Oh, Holly, I’m doing BYW with you at the moment which has me in raptures. Unfortunately, I live in Australia so won’t be able to make any of these lovely events. I hope they are huge successes and I can’t wait to buy your book. Now how do I decide whether to buy the UK or US version? Are only the covers different? J x

    • Reply decor8 March 8, 2011 at 12:40 pm

      @Jane – The UK version is in British English and the US is in American English. So being that you are from Australia you may like the UK version better?
      But Murdoch Books in Australia will release it there where you live April 1 and it will have the US jacket but the UK end papers (which are so beautiful with quotes and color on them, the US end papers are solid yellow) and the type on the Australian version is raised on the cover AND its in British English.

    Hi Holly,

    Congratulations with your book!
    I live in Amsterdam! So I am really looking forward for when you come here…

    I am pregnant and I am due June 30th… so I am not sure I will be able to be there… but hope so!
    Would love to see you and get a signed copy of your book!
