  1. Ciao Suzie!

    Molto grazie for the mention! I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier, however, we have been on the road in Mallorca.

    Wow, wo much coverage and support from my blogger friends - if only we were getting royalties! - but I'm just happy someone will be reading it.

    Can't wait for your feedback when you do get a copy. Also let me know if you see it around Calabria. x

  2. I am glad to see the 2nd Edition. Haven't seen it around Calabria yet. - But love my 1st edition.
    You and Terry understand the "Calabrian way" well.
