Holiday Cards

As we have in the past, we have decided to create some Holiday cards based upon our current projects here at Umbrelly Books. This years card will be based upon A Home Called Grey Gardens, which we hope to release by April of 09'. These black and white cards will be available next week on Etsy.com in a limited edition run of two-hundred & fifty.

Check back soon for the direct link. :-)
NOTE: A Home Called Grey Gradens is not a holiday book.

Grey Gardens

Well as some of you know, I have been working on the text for the illustrated storybook edition of Grey Gardens. I am happy to say that we have finalized a copy and are now awaiting illustrations from the incomparable Molly Crabapple, which will start in early 2009.

It dawned on me yesterday morning that this was pertaining to real life women who had once lived very interesting lives. With this in mind I spoke with our resident live in ghost Nancy. I asked her to pass on the message that I had written a book about them and that I was waiting for a sign that it was OK to move forward.

I continued about my day, not thinking anything of it - until I checked my horoscope. Here is what it said:
Just like Little Edie to send my message by way of astrology.

Another Day, Another Book...

It's true, we are still working very hard to release our first novella, but, it would appear as if we might first put out another DePalma/Crabapple picture book sometime early next year.

All I can say is that the text has been written, & it is about two amazing, real life women who once lived in East Hampton's.

I'm sure a few of you can guess who I mean. :-)
