The Blooms of May and Madeleine


As the MC book is in the final editing stages, the bloom is slowly returning to my cheeks. In this world of instant gratification, thank you for your patience and for returning to a dark house over the past several weeks.

EEE is back home -BUT only for a few days as I'll be tripping down South to check out Sotheby's spectacular Kluge sale in person with a full report.

P.S. The cover and book design were done by Sam Shahid who also did the Valentina and Jeremiah Goodman books. I think he and his team did a superb job at capturing her romantic and evocative essence.

It looks wonderful. Would wait, however impatiently, indefinitely.

Paulette P. said...

Looking forward to this long awaited book. The cover looks fantastic.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Such a gorgeous cover!!

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

So so glad you all are still there - and thrilled you like the cover. I'm sure you recognized it as the Winter Bedroom at Leves (as we all have summer and winter bedrooms...)

Striking cover, I can't wait to see and read whats inside! Any word on a release date?

Christa Pirl said...

Can't wait to add the latest EEE book to my collection!

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

October 19 in English and French!

Blue said...

I'm looking forward to this book.

Welcome back, by the way. I was discussing your absence with another blogger, also an author, over dinner last night and she suggested that with a looming deadline all things not germane are jettisoned - I sort of assumed that was the case. Again, welcome back. You've been missed.

My Dear Madame,

So glad you have been released from your editorial reclaimer. I love to think of you as LA put forward yesterday in you Castaing blue and leopard stilettos lecturing on this book we all have so looked forward to being brought into this world and into our hands.

Your perhaps oldest fan,
Home Before Dark

19 October? I'll mark my calendar.
And if you really do mean it about an edition in
French I can think of a few smart French women of
my acquaintance who'll be delighted.

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Mr. Worthington, I like how you think in multiples... EEE

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Home, You're one of the reasons I put the lights back on.

Blue, there have been tremendous losses in the blogosphere recently what with Decorno and Aesthete retiring. Perhaps after a short sabbatical, they'll come back too... EEE

Rose C'est La Vie said...

You're always worth waiting for Emiy! And now we must be patient for the arrival of this glorious looking book. The cover is gorgeous.. And thanks for the out-takes in your next post. Slavering already!

An Aesthete's Lament said...

Pretty wonderful news. Am so waiting for a copy to makes it way into my hot little hands. I remember standing in that bedroom on the cover, just before the auction, and being staggered by the fabrics, et cetera, and the romantic decrepitude.

Emily Evans Eerdmans said...

Aesthete, there you go again - "romantic decrepitude" - an amazingly elegant and evocative phrase which you so easily toss off... your hands are one of the pairs I most anxious about - I do hope you like it... EEE
