Life Without Envy, and Marvin the Time-Traveling Armchair

Happy New Year, everybody! May 2016 be your awesomest year yet.

Here’s why I’m feeling pretty darn excited about 2016, myself:

Life Without Envy_04

Pub date is much sooner than I expected (and when does that ever happen?!): September 27th, 2016! I’m working on a proper book page now.

I don’t have much to say (yet) apart from the cover reveal, but it did occur to me after posting my latest decluttering update that there’s one corner of my room which is quite perfect:


Marvin the time-traveling armchair


I found this armchair in an antiques shop in Providence last New Year’s Eve, and fell instantly in love. His name is Marvin and he has the ability to zip anyone who sits in him through the fourth dimension to the destination of their choice.

Organizationally speaking, it’s the DIY project bag rack (sewing instructions here) that is noteworthy. I’m also planning to recover that 1930s folding chair to Marvin’s right with the vintage-inspired upholstery fabric you see folded on top. (I’m so sad Grey’s Fabric is leaving Boston!!)

    I don’t know. You say the book about living without envy won’t be out for another 9 months, and here I am suffering from Marvin envy. It doesn’t seem right, somehow!
    Are Grey’s going to New York? Maybe you could visit Mood and Grey’s. But then that might be a Grey Mood day.

    I love that colorful corner. It is very much you! But I thought “Marvin the Traveling Armchair” was the name of your next book! Hmm, I like it!!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
