(the misadventures of an expatriate corporate dropout)

Saturday, September 26, 2009

in case you're interested ...

this whole life transformation thing isn't cheap ... when you pull up stakes, transport yourself to another country and try and live a dream ... sans income ... it adds up!

well, I've spent many posts here waxing poetic regarding my new life, my new village, etcetera etcetera ... and now that I've launched my boutique, I've come upon a sweet little booklet highlighting the real scoop on my new home of choice ... Brantôme.

If you'd like to support my adventure ever so slightly, and receive something in exchange... (the book described below) ... drop me a comment or an email via the blogger contact info here and I'll send you a book. It is on offer in my store for only 10 euros ... I'm set up on PayPal so that would make it simple. Ten euros plus shipping and its all yours! Don't make me resort to one of those donation buttons ... cause I will if I must! (lol).

The new book is on offer in our new shop, The Bohemians. It is called "Brantome ... Ancient, Mystical, Sacred" is co-authored by Angela Clarke and Didier Bouillet. It is 32 pages, with highlights of the best features of our village.

The book focuses on the history of sacred sites in Brantôme ... from the first inhabitants of 4000 BC until today. It includes lovely photographs and serves as a pretty memento of the important aspects of this picturesque village.

Angela is a British author who lives near Brantôme. She recently completed her first novel, 2012 The Symphony. Didier owns a shop in Brantôme, "L'Arbre du Voyageur' and has lived all over the world before settling near Perigueux.

I always had an inkling that underneath that lovely bohemian and eccentric exterior beats the heart of a ruthless capitalist.

That said, when I get some extra loot, I'll send it your way for some hot tome action.

I can empathize--and I don't even have a book to sell... Even pots to piss in are getting scarce.

Bon courage et à bientôt,

BTW, I'm always interested in what you have to say about your life in France and elsewhere!

hi folks, ha ha...like I thought the floodgates would open up! NOT! but threw it out there....

I've more to say, more to write ... but my daughter is here and since I now see my kids 1 or 2 times per year, my full attention is at points other than my blog.

back soon!

Have a lovely time with your daughter. Just in case you don't know, there is a wonderful cheap way of posting books internationally. I found it here http://totalfrance.com/france/forum/viewtopic.php?t=60203&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=tarif+livre&&start=0

no it's missed off the last bit

http://totalfrance.com/france/forum/viewtopic.php?t=60203&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=tarif+livre&&start=0 hope that's it

Rosie said...

sorry, bloody thing. ends in tarif+livre&&start=0 and if it doesn't do it this time just search for tarif livre on totalfrance.com. It is much much cheaper than other ways of posting books. It's to spread the glorious french language throughout the world :)
