If you haven't read Paper Hearts, I don't want to give anything away, but I will tell you there are elements in the book that were inspired by my friend Mary's shop here in Rockford. It's called Urban Farmgirl and if I could live in it, I would.
Urban Farmgirl is this funky, cool little gem of a vintage treasure box and I can't believe it's right here in my hometown. It's beautiful. Even better... I get to sign books there on Valentine's Day!
I mean, seriously. Let me twist your arm for a minute...(as if I need to...) Just look at this place. And the coolest thing is, it's literally never the same place twice!
I can count about 33 things just in that photo that I want to bring home to my own house.
Mary has such an incredible eye and she's one of the savviest chicks I know. I am THRILLED I get to hang out with her for a couple of hours on Valentine's Day! Plus, the best part is, she going to be giving away a basket worth $150 of Urban Farmgirl awesomeness AND a basket of all of my books!
If that wasn't enough, when you come out and purchase Paper Hearts, you might just find something special inside your copy...Mary is hiding coupons for some really COOL products, like pillows, sweatshirts and other goodies you will LOVE!
We hope you'll join us from 10-12 Valentine's morning at Urban Farmgirl in Rockford IL!
