Simon & Schuster to Publish Lessons from Madame Chic



I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! This week I am very happy to share with you my exciting news...

Because of the success of Lessons from Madame Chic, many exciting things have happened in the last few weeks. I have taken on a wonderful agent, Erica Silverman of Trident Media Group, and last week we accepted an offer from Simon & Schuster to publish Lessons from Madame Chic!

Having gone from self publishing to being aligned with a prestigious publishing house such as Simon & Schuster is a great honor for me and I am really thrilled about the prospect.

The deal was officially announced in Publisher's Weekly today. To see the press release, click here.

So what does this mean for the book? Here are the particulars:

- Lessons from Madame Chic will go off sale and not be available to purchase from now until it is re-released in the early fall. (We are hoping for October or November, 2012. As soon as I have a date I will let you know.)

- It will be newly edited and released in a beautiful gift worthy hardcover as well as be available in eBook format.

- And lastly it will be available not only online, but in bookstores and gift shops across the United States, Canada, the UK and hopefully many more countries. (Thank you for all of your patience for those of you who have written to me requesting it in bookstores... the day will be here soon!)

If you are unable to see the above embedded video where I make the announcement, click here, look in the sidebar of this blog or visit my channel: www.youtube.com/TheDailyConnoisseur

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you again to all of you for your support as I could not have accomplished this without you!

Jennifer, I am not at all surprised, but still VERY excited for you. After reading your book, I had a feeling this would happen ... and then, after the NYT feature, well, this was the logical step. Congrats -- and I cannot wait to see the new version! Your story is an inspiration to all self-publishers.

Jennifer,
Congratulations on you re-release! The Little Engine That Could....I will cherish my 'first print' copy as a collectors item. I wish you could sign it!

Warmly, Kathleen

Dear Jennifer, that is the best news! Congratulations and I’m so happy for you. Shows what can be done when you believe in your own work and keep going. I’ve been away for a week on a writing retreat in the mountains and only now catching up on all my emails and so I still have to catch up on all your other news.
I also wanted to let you know that you can buy Poet’s Cottage from Amazon on kindle. I don’t know a lot about these things with e book readers but it is there if you ever want to read it. Here is a link
http://www.amazon.com/Poets-Cottage-ebook/dp/B0073LIKMY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335407814&sr=8-1
Not sure if you read kindles or paper versions. I love the book in its paper form as the paper smells so divine but if you don’t want to wait until you can get hold of a paper one it’s there.
Congratulations to you again. xx
