It’s hard to believe the book I started in 2012 is soon to be published. In conjunction with E.L. Marker, I anticipate Musing Mediterranean to be released in early summer.
It has been such a passion project to this point, I can’t imagine what it will feel like to hold the first copy in my hands. Truthfully, none of it seemed real until I began working with an artist to craft the book cover. If you’ve been following my writing for a while you may recognize the artwork when it is fully revealed. For now, I’ve given you a just a glimpse of what the cover will include. I hope you like this sneak peek and hopefully I’m not giving too much away.
If you’re new to my blog or haven’t heard me mention Musing Mediterranean, here is a little bit of what you can expect. It’s a feel-good book chronicling my 2012 family trip to Greece, Italy and Turkey. It’s a light-hearted, summer read that I like to say is a little bit of Eat Pray Love meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Check out the press release put out by E.L. Marker here. Scroll to bottom to reserve your copy!
I like to think readers who’ve never been to the Mediterranean will enjoy seeing the countries I visited through my eyes. Readers, who have already traveled these lands, may enjoy a trip down memory lane. And readers who suffer a touch of travel anxiety, like I do, may enjoy the ridiculous, hopefully relatable, lengths I’ll go through to avoid being a shameless homebody. Here’s an excerpt I posted on the blog a while back.
I’m both excited and nervous about the book’s release. While I’m proud to have completed this book, the hard part, for me anyway, is yet to come. The selling and self-promotion of Musing Mediterranean will undoubtedly be my biggest challenge.
I hope you’ll help me with this last part because, God knows, I’m going to stress over every attempt I make at giving this little book of mine its fair shake at success.
I expect the next time I blog about Musing Mediterranean will be to announce it’s release. Woohoo!
Any advice or suggestions are more than welcome!
For the Record
I want to send Andy Cohen from BravoTV a copy of my book and have it appear on Watch What Happens Live! If anyone knows him, please hook a girl up. #bookgoals.
