Really Good News: Bloggers Love Holly Beckers Wunderbare Wohnideen!

This is my first ever Really Good News column, a column where I share once weekly some really good news related to my life, business, books, etc. This week I have really good news because the German version of Decorate Workshop, which is called Holly Beckers Wunderbare Wohnideen, is a #1 bestseller in Germany! This makes me VERY happy. I also am excited because so many German bloggers, actually some of the BEST blogs over here, wrote about my book, made cute videos, hosted giveaways, shot lovely photos of the book in their home showing favorite spreads, etc. which makes me even happier. It is hard to live abroad in a new market, new language, and to have your books translated into another language because you wonder what you sound like in German, you know? You wonder if people here will like your style? You wonder about a lot actually! But as I read the book in German, I feel like it is very much in my voice, and this makes me feel good inside.

Thank you German Bloggers

I really must shout out the bloggers here in Germany who featured my book because without their support, my book may not have gotten off to such a great start. And I have to thank my publisher, Callwey, along with my publicist, Isabel, because she is doing a great job on my book. Please click on all of the links below because even if you cannot read German, you will still find some beautiful blogs to add to your RSS feed and learn about some great new things. I want to thank everyone listed below, really, I am forever grateful!

I was so happy about these reviews that I made a special pinboard where I pinned them all and will continue to do so as I receive more mentions from German bloggers and the press here. It’s such a treat!

I also want to thank German magazine, Schoener Wohnen, who gave my book a shout out on their website here and the German version of Mollie Makes magazine for reviewing my book on page 70 in their May issue. I also love the web preview and beautiful article Brigitte magazine produced for their site which you can see here. You can also find a beautiful article about me in the May issue of Living At Home. I feel so blessed with press like this.

From my heart… THANK YOU!

    I recently posted also a review about your book. Quite late but…naaahhh, ‘better late then never’ as Germans would say, haha.
    Here it is: http://twiceversa.com/2013/05/01/buecherstapel-holly-beckers-wunderbare-wohnideen/
