Book Giveaway: 52 Things to See & Do in Calabria

52 Things to See & Do in Calabria Travel Guide

** Please note this giveaway has ended. **

Over the summer, I published my ebook, 52 Things to See & Do in Calabria — a true labor of love intended to entice readers to visit the toe of the boot and give those who already love this area as much as I do a little more information in English.

Thank you, thank you to those of you who have purchased a copy and have given me great feedback.

More positive Amazon reviews are always appreciated as they are the best way for an author to spread the word!

Many of you have asked about a printed copy, and since there has been such a demand and because I would love to hold this book in my hands too, that is one of my winter projects. Image quality for print books must be a lot higher than for ebooks, so this is the main reason a print copy isn’t available yet, but I shall do my best.

In other book news:

I have lowered the price on the ebook to $2.99, which will be the lowest it will ever be and will be in place throughout the holiday season (until January 6, the Epiphany).

And now, the free stuff:

You also have the chance to win one of three copies I will send to the winners of this giveaway. You can earn up to five entries per person:

    My first son’s great grandfather and grandmother were from Calabria. Supposedly from Reggio. I dream of taking him on a journey of discovery to Calabria. First, I need to check out the family tree, though, probably at Ancestry. My son’s father passed away prematurely so we don’t know much about his heritage. A guidebook to Calabria would certainly ignite our interest even more!
