Spring Stationery and Southern Charm

Good morning, chic readers! We are so, so excited that my latest novel, The Secret to Southern Charm, releases TOMORROW! My official launch is in my hometown of Salisbury, NC from 5-7 and you’re all invited. There will be food, cocktails, fun and, of course, books, books, books! If you’d like a personalized copy sent to you, call South Main Book Co. at 704-630-9788. Thanks so much to our friends at Minted for sponsoring this year’s gorgeous invitations. We love them so much! If you’re a dedicated Minted user, you know how great they are to work with. If you aren’t, check out some of our favorite invitations, greeting cards, art–and maybe even a few unexpected items–that make Minted so special.
