Habitually Chic Book Announcement

by habituallychic

07 . 26 . 11
I am beyond excited to finally announce that I am working on a Habitually Chic Book!  I met with and talked to many publishers but felt an instant connection at powerHouse Books.  They got my concept immediately and I could tell that I would have more creative control of the final product. It was my intention to not put out a “blogger” book per se but one that will appeal to Habitually Chic readers as well as those who have never heard of my blog.  I can’t give away the exact title or premise just yet but it will include the chicest of the chic from the worlds of interior design, fashion, art, and other creative industries.  I will also be the photographer which is very exciting and nerve wracking.  If all goes well, it will be released Fall 2012.  As someone who loves books, I can’t wait to place my own book along side my favorites on my bookshelves and I hope you will too!
