NEW PREPPY BOOKSTORE

PARK THAT BIKE AND COME ON IN.....
THE STORE IS OPEN

One of the blogs that I have fallen in love with is Chic & Charming. Sophia is innovative, unique and has a certain elegance and grace that is truly her own. She gave me a wonderful idea that she actually received from another blog. She has started an online store on her website.

I have a passion for beautiful books. Being a struggling author...(yes, I am even working with a publisher), I am always on the quest for outstanding books and ideas for entertaining, decorating, travel, sports, etc. With three children (one is a teen) of my own who are avid readers, I will watch their interest in books and will share them with you. Since anyone can type in certain key words in Amazon.com and get similar results, I will not say that these books, etc. are difficult to find, I just have selected a few of my favorites and organized them for you. If you choose to purchase them through my site, it would be a little tribute to my time and would be appreciated. P.S. Please be patient because I am still working on a few of the categories. For example, my husband said I must have a scotch, cigar and wine book for the men's section.

Hi Happy Homemaker! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Here is a little about my publishing life so far. I sent about 6 copies of my book out to small, regional publishers These publishers seem to specialize in my type of book, and one of them is interested in producing my book. They asked me to revise my book and take out the Christmas element to see what it would look like. A little hard to do, but we will see. They are also trying to finding an artist. That is where it stands to date. I will be featuring one of this publisher's publications next week. This publisher is small but does beautiful work. Are you thinking of publishing a book?

I'm a wannabe writer. All my life I've wanted to be a writer. I even have the title to my book all picked out and it would be based on true happenings. But I don't think I have the discipline to ever sit down and write it.

I LOVE to read and have many of the books you have in your store!
