Italy Ever After flying

There are a lot of ups and downs at the beginning of a writing career (and I daresay later in a writing career, but I’m not there, yet) and it’s important to focus on the ups (while accepting that you have to take a few hits sometimes). The past month has been full of pinch-me moments for Italy Ever After, more than a year after it was first released.

Firstly, it was selected for paperback distribution in The Works and WHSmith stores in the UK and is expected to appear in Indigo supermarkets in Canada, soon, too. It’s a dream come true to see shelfies of my book, and there even seems to be a trend of my book appearing next to a Colleen Hoover book, which has made me smile (to be honest, I’m a bit scared to read her books because they are apparently ‘break-me’ emotional and I like my warm fuzzies…).

Secondly, the Italian translation has gone up on Amazon in preparation for release on 26 July. I’ve been learning a lot of Italian while researching these Italy books (and, while I interrupt my Italian programming to bring you Twenty-One Nights in Paris, you’ll be pleased to hear book six is back in that beautiful country) so I got a real kick out of reading the cover copy in Italian, so much so that I read it aloud (and made mistakes eek) on TikTok…

Learning languages is my second favourite thing in the world (after writing books), so I absolutely adore seeing the translation. I hope it’s the first of many and that I can continue doing these two things I love and passing on that enthusiasm to readers! xx

Un amore estivo può trasformarsi nel lieto fine che stava aspettando?
«Una delizia da divorare!»
«Frizzante e romanticissimo.»
Sotto il caldo sole di un’estate magica può succedere di tutto. Anche di innamorarsi di nuovo…

Lou sta ancora raccogliendo i cocci del suo matrimonio, quando si presenta la possibilità di iscrivere sua figlia Edie a un campo estivo per giovani musicisti in Italia: sembra l’occasione perfetta per sollevare il morale di entrambe e ricominciare con il piede giusto. Così, mentre sua figlia segue le lezioni e si esercita per il saggio di fine estate, Lou approfitta del tempo libero per esplorare la località da sogno in cui si trova. Ben presto, però, si renderà conto che ad attrarla non sono solo i magnifici paesaggi del Lago di Garda e dintorni, ma anche l’affascinante Nick, il maestro di musica di Edie che ha organizzato il campo estivo. Questa vacanza potrebbe trasformare la loro conoscenza in qualcosa di più?
