Promotion time for Il Molo. Haven’t done it in a while. You can purchase at Amazon in paperback or Kindle version or on CreateSpace. It’s not too late to offer it as a Valentine’s Day Gift. (If you are a Goodreads member, you can read other reviews I’ve written. The link is at the bottom of this post.)
Two of the photos that head up my blog page were taken on the beach in Varigotti. One of them shows the boardwalk that leads out to Il Molo. The other one is a view from the top of Punta Crena and is taken from a painting that I used in an earlier post.
And now to the selfie review:
It is difficult reviewing your own book. I think the most important thing that I can say is that I enjoyed writing it.
I started the book in 2010 when I had a brilliant idea about writing a novel about a murder in the small village in Italy where we spend at least a week every summer. But then I stopped working on it – unsure of where to take the story (Italian police procedures, etc.) as well as lack ideas on how to go about convincing an established publisher to agree to publish and distribute my novel.
Then in 2013, my aunt self-published her book and introduced me to CreateSpace. So I had my publisher. As for finishing my novel, one day I had a “revelation” and I knew where the story was going.
I will not reveal what happens in Il Molo. I will let you discover it. Happy reading!
