Welcome to Book Club Mom’s Author Update. Open to all authors who want to share news with readers.
Today let’s hear from Karen Haid and Uvi Poznansky:
Calabria: The Other Italy grew out of my four years living, working and traveling in the fascinating, lesser-known region in the toe of the Italian boot. Writing about Italy has taken me in directions I would never have imagined. One such unexpected and lovely consequence has been a number of invitations to speak in Italian schools, on the radio and to even appear on television in the bel paese, where I enjoy being referred to as la scrittrice americana, or the American writer.
I’m always traveling and exploring new places for My Italian Blog, and I am working on a new book about Basilicata, Calabria’s neighbor. I even hurtled off a cliff and zipped 75 miles per hour on a thin line over a half mile up in the air to inject the adrenaline of the first-hand experience into my next book.
My latest adventure is the inauguration of Karen’s Travel LLC, giving me the opportunity to personally show guests an authentic Italy. From the grandeur of the mountains in the country’s largest national park to the beauty of Calabria’s 500 miles of coastline, my “Calabria Cultural Tour” offers a rich taste of an undiscovered corner of Southern Italy. We will enjoy spectacular scenery, explore quaint villages, visit world-class museums, and learn all about Calabria yesterday and today, while indulging in great food and wine every step of the way. Join me on my Calabria Tour!
I’m so excited to share the news with you! My new series, Ash Suspense Thrillers with a Dash of Romance, just hit the shelves this January, with Volume II: Virtually Lace. It is #1 new release in Virtual Reality books!
Haunted by discovering the body of a beautiful dancer, Michael sets out to create a virtual reality simulation of her murder. Can he bring the mystery to life? Can he solve its clues in time, before the killer turns on the woman he loves, Ash?
Then, Volume I will come out mid-February. Why do I publish Volume II earlier than volume I, you ask? Because I often find the characters so fascinating as to delve deeper into their past… So after writing Virtually Lace, I hopped back half a year, to the time my protagonist, Ash, wakes up in the ER where she is diagnosed with coma. Hence, Coma Confidential.
