Ok, ok. [breathe]
I was incredibly pleased to have been asked by fellow fragrance blogger and author Persolaise to contribute a page to his soon-to-be-released book, Le Snob: Perfume [part of a series of books published by Hardie Grant Books in the UK]. To be completely honest, I have been sitting on my hands for months while waiting to find out if the publisher and author liked what I had written enough to have made the final cut. I just found out the other day that I'm in! And, I'm very happy, elated AND jubilant about it. So far, these folks have also been confirmed as contributors [but there are more]: Roja Dove, Francis Kurkdjian, Christopher Chong and Andy Tauer. Yeah, and me [I can't imagine how many people will be wondering who I am, but I'm more than willing to tell anyone who asks!]. I know how hard Persolaise has worked on this book and I'm so happy to see it come to fruition, and especially to have the honor of contributing.
Le Snob: Perfume will be available in the UK October 1st, and can be pre-ordered here: Amazon.co.uk (UK)
In the US, it appears that the release date will be November 1st, and can be pre-ordered here: Amazon.com (US)
So, the book isn't expensive, so why don't you buy one for yourself and one for your weird Aunt who is actually pretty close to you in age, but is WAY into vintage clothes and antiques, so she comes across as about 10 years older than she is, and she and her home smell kind of musty, like, all the time.
