Well, it’s official! At long last I have a publisher for my book! I am honored and so excited to announce that Vendome Press in New York will be publishing Nora Murphy Country House Style!

Woo Hoo!!!! (Just can’t stop hooting! You can probably hear me in your neck of the woods!)

Thanks to a team of great friends whose talents all helped to make this happen, including my beautiful literary agent, Dana Newman in Los Angeles. As soon as Dana received my revised book proposal (which was a feat in itself!) Dana said to me that she would find just the right publisher for this special book. And she did!

Here’s a snippet from Vendome’s homepage of what they’re all about:

“The Vendome Press is a preeminent publisher of illustrated books on the fine arts and photography, architecture and interior design, fashion and jewelry, lifestyle and travel, and French culture. The company’s mission is to imbue every book it publishes with the impeccable quality and taste of its namesake, the Place Vendôme, the most elegant square in Paris.”

Well, there you have it…quite the gold standard. As I signed the contract yesterday, it became all so real; 224-pages of glorious photography and stories are to be delivered to my publisher (“my publisher” – I love the sound of that!) by mid-October. Connecticut Country House will be the main gig, but I’ll also be featuring 4 fabulous fellow bloggers’ country homes from around the country! That, my friends, is so awesome!

Cheers my dear friends!

Love, Nora
