My French Country Home magazine is in print

by Sharon Santoni

 

If someone had told me that one day I’d publish a magazine I’d have laughed in disbelief!  Seriously this is an adventure, and I am grateful to each of our readers who has given me and my small team so much encouragement.  Merci!

We created My French Country Home as a digital magazine at the beginning of the year, and along with the many happy emails of readers enjoying the content, we also received a lot of requests for a printed version.  So we decided to make that happen.

This decision proved to be another steep learning curve.  There were a lot of choices to be made … size, paper weight, where to publish etc.    We opted to print the magazine in the USA because that is where most of our readers are to be found, so it makes sense for shipping.  We have gone for beautiful heavy paper to make your reading experience even more enjoyable.

We are teaming up with talented photographers and journalists, to bring you beautiful images of France and authentic French living.  I think you’ll love our recipes, our tips for visiting various parts of France and of course the stunning homes that we share with you.

My girlfriends share their favourite addresses with you; we show you how to create seasonal bouquets, and of course there are pages of shopping ideas for some very French inspiration.  We also feature a favourite traditional French brand, and bring you an exclusive offer to purchase their products.

So here I am announcing that today is the day that the printed version of the magazine goes on sale right HERE.

We start taking orders today, and printed copies will be shipped in 2-3 weeks time.

We really value your feedback so please don’t hesitate to drop us an email, or leave us a comment, saying what you would like to see in the magazine.

I hope you love this May issue, whether you read it on line, or with a paper copy in your hands.

Is there an option to subscribe to the print copy and have it delivered inside my subscription box? The reason I ask is that I read a few months ago that it was $50 for each issue delivered to North America. I am not sure if that is still the case. Perhaps you can let me know?
Thank you,

Leslie

Hi Leslie! The magazine is only available in this box as a special launch addition, as the majority of magazine release months are not the same as box shipment months. However, the good news is that the magazine is not $50 an issue! The magazine will ship from our printers in the US and is priced at $12.99 USD an issue or $59.99 for a year. Click the MAGAZINE tab at the top of the page for more information and to order, and don’t hesitate to email us with any questions! – Emily @ MFCH

I am trying to find out where the two magazines I ordered might be. I was charged for them on March 30th, and they have not yet been delivered. Thank you, Liz Hanneman

It is Debbie Adams again. So sorry. The order no 39004
I have changed my email address recently and received an invoice last week. I am thinking that the subscription was cancelled from my old email address which I still have.
I still want to receive the magazine.
Thank you for your trouble.
