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!

Celebrating with Champagne Hues

Hello, again, dear friends! Today I’m inspired by pinky-golden-creamy champagne hues so present in France and currently on my mind as I plan the launch celebrations for Paris in Bloom that are taking place in just a few weeks. Champagne will definitely be on the menu as we toast the release of a project that I’ve been working on for several years. You can read all about it here.

Although each of these locations are either in the book or were considered for inclusion, these actual photos sadly had to be cut. The selection process that my editor and I went through was very tough! But I’m happy that you can see them here now.
