After two-plus densely packed years of writing and researching and revising and editing (and the entire last month especially!), I am so thrilled to announce that the gestation period for my book is finally over:
And if you wonder whether I woke up last night and clicked on the Amazon link just to make sure I wasn't dreaming, I have zero embarrassment in telling you that yes, yes I did.
(Me at 2:51 AM: Phew, it's still there!)
Here's a bigger photo of the cover:

There will be lots more to say about the book in the coming months, but I wanted you to be the first to see it here.
It was this blog, after all, that inspired me to write it.
And it was YOU, my blog readers, with your unquenchable passion for literature and design, who I think of as the silent co-writers on my shoulder.
What's Novel Interiors about?
It's about taking cues from the enchanting worlds of classic novels to show you how they can inspire your decorating style, the way you relax and entertain, even the colors and fabrics that you're drawn to.
In a bouillon cube, it's about living a well-read life.
It's for design aficionados who want to add another layer of meaning to their personal spaces.
It's for lovers of classic literature who want to hone in on the design style that reflects who they truly are.
Whether you're a fan of Austen or Proust, Woolf or Waugh, Cather or Fitzgerald, I promise there's a chapter for you.
It comes out December 2nd, and you can pre-order it HERE.
