welcome one & all: my november online book boutique is now open…
Posted in amsterdam: made by hand, books, my heart wanders, paris: made by hand November 1st, 2011 by pia

As many of you are aware, My Heart Wanders won’t officially be available in North America until April of next year. Over the last few months I’ve taken note of the collective dismay expressed by those living in North America not able to get a copy for themselves or their friends and family for Christmas. So it got me thinking, what can I do?

Well, in between bouts of nausea and back pain (but oh to also now feel little feet and hands kicking and wriggling inside my growing belly – it’s so strange and beautiful) over the last few weeks I’ve been quietly working on creating a little “November only” online book boutique – a place where you can buy not just My Heart Wanders, but also Paris: Made by Hand and Amsterdam: Made by Hand, no matter where you are in the world.  To make it extra special, I will be signing each book with a personal message and dedication, so that your copy will be one of a kind.

The November book boutique will, as the title suggests, only be available for the month of November so that I can get all orders shipped out and to your door by mid December. And although due to the weight of the books the shipping seems expensive, it’s important to note that knowing my current situation,  I won’t be able to travel to book events, workshops or signings for quite a while, so this will be the only chance to get hold of your own personally signed copy of the book…

If you don’t see your country of residence in the shipping section, do not fret – I was not able to select regions (i.e. Scandinavia, Europe, North America, Africa, Asia etc) so instead I chose a few countries in each region –  you can pick the country closest to you as that will be the same shipping cost, or if you don’t see a country near enough to you then just email me your country and what you’d like to purchase and I’ll email you a paypal invoice tailored specific to your needs. (Australians please note: There is a great inexpensive flat rate for books sent within Australia – $5 for either Made by Hand books, $12 for My Heart Wanders , or $18 for all three).

I made the boutique very simple, specifically for buying one copy of each. However, if you want something more,  for example, 2 or 3 copies of My Heart Wanders with 3 different dedicated signatures, then email me your order request, I’ll get the shipping quote for you and will email you a paypal invoice specific to your needs.

So without further ado, let me welcome you to my November online book boutique! Please click here to browse the boutique at your leisure…

I do hope you like this idea, and that you’ll make room for a book or two on your Christmas list.


Extra notes:

+All prices are in Australian dollars.
+Limited copies available, so please get in earlier rather than later to ensure your signed copy.
+The last order will be taken November 30, 2011 to ensure deliver by mid-December.
+Please click here to send me an email for special requests.

    Dear Pia,
    I’ve already ordered two issues of ‘my heart wanders’ (I live in Germany)and send one to my sister as a birthday present. She is living in Montreal/Canada… But christmas time is coming and maybe she will order some for her friends. So its really a good idea to open an November book shop!

    All the best for you…

    Hi Pia, this is such a lovely idea, shame though as I only bought your book a month ago (and wrote a review on my blog http//:creativemischiefandme.blospot.com).

    Maybe I will get some signed copied for my special friends who I know would fall in love with them too.I wil certainly be letting them know about it.

    I only just discovered about your ‘flutterings’. Congratulations, fantastic news!

    Dear Pia,
    So glad to hear little feet and hands are wriggling around, it is an amazing feeling.
    Well it’s a really good idea to open your November shop, hope you will do well, funny enough I am off to Amsterdam Friday morning and had bought your book about a fortnight ago so am so looking forward to fitting in a few of your addresses during my three days in Amsterdam;

    Take care of yourself and carry on being amazing and amazed…
    best regards
    liz from Paris (I have the one on Paris too!)

    Hi Pia! Can I just say how amazing “My Heart Wanders” is? Well it looks like I already did 😛 I don’t really know much about interior decorating but I was drawn to your work the moment I read the article dedicated to you in Peppermint Magazine. Your book arrived in the mail at a really good time. I was feeling really lost and felt like the very foundations of my life had been ripped up and I didn’t know what to do and then BAM! Your book arrived in the post and I felt compelled to keep going and to continue living, feeling and experiencing. It’s that good! You are truly talented! But most importantly, you breathe life and love into everything you create. It is obvious in the smallest details of your book. Thank you so much for instilling beauty, light and enrichment back into the world 🙂 You are a really doing the world a service.
