Welcome to GIBBIN HOUSE!




When I first started this blog about the misadventures of a nascent author, I had only a small novel under my belt, titled Gibbin House. The building that bears the name is a fictitious postwar era safe-house, as many might have existed, and the London home of my motley crew of exiles. I could not anticipate then the degree to which I would join its ranks of writers and artists, but since publishing my book in 2011, I have had the greatest privilege of opening my own art gallery and of exploring my love of the written word through visual poetry and paper sculptures. Yet much like the girl who first started blogging two years ago, I suspect I don't know what I'm doing half the time. As such, Gibbin House remains a refuge for ramblings...and on occasion a haven for little triumphs.

Highlights from Ashley LaMar's Closed The Cover review of Gibbin House:

"Gibbin House by Carola Perla is one of those rare books where I fell in love with the story from the very first line."

"I could have read the letter in the Prologue over and over and never tired of reading those gorgeous words. They simply radiated off the pages. Simply amazing."

"It was so well-written that I could feel Anka’s pain and struggle when she first left Vienna for London. Her overwhelming anxiety as she travelled the subway rails and trains into London for the first time was intoxicating and her nerves while she waited for Alfred to show up nearly had me in tears."

"Gibbin House is an intense, emotional and flawlessly romantic story...It was simply perfect. There are no words with which I can adequately describe my love for this book. Gibbin House should absolutely be a must-read."

Aww thanks for this! I can't believe I missed it before. You're so welcome for the review and thank you again for your book. I'm hoping to be able to re-read it again soon. I miss reading about Anka.
