Paris Privé

girl-writing-in-parisEver since I decided to take sole responsibility for writing the content of ParisienSalon, life has conspired to make that a difficult task for me. There have been technical glitches, bouts with the flu, crazy deadlines and whatnot. So, yes, I’ve been missing in action, and missing in Paris since December. Je suis desolé.

All of these things forced me to take a big step back and take a look at the bigger picture. Sometimes that’s a difficult thing to do when you’re in the thick of it all. But Paris is all about reinvention, isn’t it? I’m not certain that those who’ve lived in the French capital their whole lives see that side of the city. One doesn’t have to look further the Louvre to see this—once a palace, it’s now a museum with a thoroughly modern twist (in E. M. Pei’s glass pyramid).

So I embarked on a reinvention of sorts—not necessarily of myself (I’m perfect, after all), but of my life and what I want that life to be. That involved some trimming of the fat, so to speak. In January, I shut down Shop.ParisienSalon, something I primarily launched a year earlier as a venue to sell my photography. I realized that I just didn’t like being in the retail business.

On that photography front, I was invited to exhibit my photography at a gallery in Miami. Coming totally out of the bleu, I was suddenly thrown into a whirlwind tizzy of indecision. Of the hundreds upon hundreds of photographs I had ready to show, which ones would tell the most unique story worthy of a gallery wall?

Much to the surprise of just about everyone who knows me, I opted not to show any of my Paris images, instead putting together a collection from Istanbul. But I did want to get Paris into the gallery some way, somehow. The exhibition inspired me to FINALLY finish putting together my Paris book, which was completed and published a few weeks prior to the show.

Paris Prive Cover ResizedParis Privé was a labor of love, but a labor nonetheless. For years (yes, years), I’d been trying to decide the best way to tell this visual story, and it all finally coalesced under the pressure of publishing. I held off on announcing the publication because there was the possibility of a distribution deal that would change where and how the book was sold. I’m still not sure what will happen with the distribution of this book long term, so I’ve decided to let everyone know that they can buy the book here (and now).

I also moved all of my photography to a new website, where all of my Paris prints (and more) can be seen and purchased.

And then there’s my biggest project…the one I had put on the back-burner for too long: my novel. I’ve been hard at work writing Haven—while still holding down a full-time job as a freelance copywriter. A girl’s gotta pay her bills. I’m 150 pages and 17 chapters into the book, with a deadline to get the finished manuscript to my editor by June 30th. And, yes, I’m feeling the pressure. You can learn more about Haven and follow my progress on my Facebook page.

I have scheduled some time to get back to writing about Paris here…so please stick with me. I miss my amis and fellow Francofiles. And let me know what you want to read about in the comments section, and I’ll be sure to get those stories to you.

In the meantime, merci beaucoup for your patience…and a bientôt.

    Congratulations X 3! You have been a busy girl but I’ll admit to missing the heck out of you. I’m thankful Facebook has kept us together these last months. Your book is beautiful and I wish you much success. Now the novel is another thing altogether. Almost everyday, at least once, I say, “I wish I were a writer, cause I have some stories to tell!” Well I’m not, but you most certainly are and I can’t wait for your book to come out.

    You’re on a roll!!!! Magnifique!
