Decorate Workshop Tours: Big News!

Hello friends! I am so pleased to announce two very wonderful events that Chronicle Books is sponsoring for me. The first is something everyone reading can get involved in, it’s the official Decorate Workshop Blog Book Tour and the schedule is listed below. It kicks off Monday, November 26th on the Poppytalk blog (Thank you Jan!) and continues daily during the week until Friday, December 7th. You will get to see special photos of and from the book, read reviews, catch a few interviews that some of these lovely bloggers had with me and more!

I must thank all 20 of these wonderful ladies, my blog peers, for their support in advance and I cannot wait to read and pin all of your reviews to my Decorate Workshop Pinterest board. I am very excited to see what each of you have to say and how you present the book – it’s such an honor for me so thank you again. I’ll be tuning in from Monday while I’m in London to see Jan’s review on Poppytalk – so excited!

The next big news is that I’ll be going on a REAL LIVE book tour next year in May 2013, Chronicle Books is bringing me on a North American book tour and I can’t wait to tell you who we’re working with and what fun events we have in store for you! We haven’t finalized dates or cities yet, but if you have suggestions PLEASE let me know where you’d like to see me because I’m open to suggestions and I want to see as many of you as I possibly can. I’ll be on the road for 2-3 weeks so I can hit 8-10 cities at least.

In 2011 I went to 20 cities in the US and Europe and honestly, I never imagined I’d be invited to do it a second time around so I’m going to make this tour the best that I can for all of us – especially my guests – so we can have really great events that are inspiring, productive and educational – not just about me signing books because I love to teach and the idea of doing live workshops at no cost to you makes me so, so happy – so workshops will be part of the book signing parties for sure. After this tour I honestly want to make babies, buy a home and stick around locally for a few years so this may be it when it comes to touring around for awhile so I hope to meet as many of you as possible! :)

Details to follow! But first, it’s bloggy book tour time starting on Monday – please follow along by visiting the blogs highlighted above.

Speaking of books, tomorrow (November 23), I will be in LONDON at the book department at Selfridges on Oxford Street from 3:00-3:30 doing a really informal signing – no seats, no presentations, no frills – just me standing around signing a bunch of books for their inventory. If you’re in the ‘hood and want to swing by to buy a book and would like it personalized then that’s a great time to do it. You cannot bring in any books with you but if you buy it tomorrow at Selfridges I will definitely sign it for you. Here’s a coupon you can use for 20% OFF, too!

Now back to the regularly scheduled program – blogging about something other than my book, ha ha!!!!

    Congratulations Holly!

    Please come to Denver! We have awesome book stores, and a wonderful Anthropologie in Cherry Creek(Denver)if they are involved in your tour? Even Boulder Colorado would be a fun place to tour too! I think you would love Colorado! Please come for a visit! I would come out to support you for sure! Colorado is a huge handmade and recycle minded people? We have many handmade markets all year round and many cute boutiques etc.

    Please come to Denver! We are awesome and have a few amazing Anthropologie stores, my favorite being the one in Denver’s Cherry Creek district. Lots of cute boutiques, yummy restraunts and organic eats! A really amazing Farmers market just outside of the Anthropologie I referred to above.

    Congrats on the book tour! And better yet, good luck on starting your family! I know you’ve wanted that for a while now.

    Just wanted to let you know that your book looks amazing and I just had to order it, so I did! :D

    I can hardly wait to receive it! I ordered one via amazon as it was so much cheaper than via an online book company in my country. Yay!

    That blog book tour is a really great idea for all of us who are not in the US – I´ll make sure to visit all those blogs and their reviews! But I still hope to see you at a booktour when Decorate Workshop will be published in Germany…

    Well, If Chronicle Books is bringing you then there must be at least one stop here in the SF Bay Area right? If so, I’ll be there!

    Congratulations to you!! I received my copy from Amazon and I am diligently pouring through each and every page. I’m in the midst of a renovation, I just purchased my first home and it’s an outdated 1979 ranch with tons of potential. I’d love to see you come to NC or even KY (I split my time between the two). Congrats again on your success and both of your books are so full of inspiration I reference them often.

    Thanks for all your inspiration !

    I would love for you to come to Atlanta and allow us to host you at the indie-pendent…I think it just might be your kind of place. I suppose I could be a bit bias, though :-)
