Celebration Time – Paris in Bloom Now Available Worldwide!

Paris in Bloom by Georgianna Lane

The day has finally arrived, dear friends! My floral-themed love letter to the most beautiful city in the world, Paris in Bloom, has been released and is available worldwide! It’s already been spotted in bookstores from Chicago to London to Paris. Words truly cannot express what this day means to me and how incredible it is to share it with you! You’ve been with me from the beginning! And many, many of you pre-ordered the book and have received it early, or are receiving it today. We can all pour the bubbly and celebrate together!

And due to your support, Paris in Bloom is an Amazon #1 Bestseller in the Flower category! My heartfelt thanks to each of you! A book like this is never the work of one person and I’ve had the most fabulous team that I owe endless gratitude to including my amazing agent, Kate Woodrow, my publisher Abrams Books, my editor Camaren Subhiyah, designer Darilyn Carnes and the entire team at Abrams who produced the book and distributed it internationally. Special mention, as you all know, goes to my family and to David, who has been by my side the entire time, providing support, advice and assistance every day.

We held a magical pre-launch event at a stunning Paris Perfect apartment under the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower. Here are some images from the festivities that I hope help you feel as if you were there!

    Oh Georgianna, how ridiculously wonderful! Your launch looks like it was so impossibly pretty! Am sending you the biggest congratulations from my little corner of the world. I did check my favourite bookshop last weekend, just in case they had it early ;) but will definitely be heading back on Saturday to have another look – then you can add Sydney to your list. xox

      Hello, dear Natasha!

      Thank you so very much for this. It means a great deal to me!!! :)

      The launch was so magical! It might look effortless but we were busting it here for days beforehand. I barely got my make up on in time and never did get my shoes on! lol.

      I do hope you are well. I think of you often and send wishes for happiness to you. You are always an inspiration.

      xoxo

  • Hi Georgianna, I have just connected to you via Sharon’s blog. Love the book and will be ordering here in Australia. I live on the mid north coast NSW with no book shops so I will try Amazon. This is amazing tantalising timing as we head back to France for May with the last week again in Paris. Hope to see some spring blooms.
    Cheers

      Hello, Lorraine!

      Thank you so much for writing and for your interest in my book. Many of my Australian friends are ordering from Book Depository which has free shipping worldwide. I’m sure they can get it to you well in time for your trip, which sounds amazing!

      The early blooming cherries and magnolias will be finished by May but there will be roses and peonies and flowering chestnut trees.

      Wishing you a wonderful journey.

      Very best,

      Georgianna
