Time to Celebrate with a BOOK GIVEAWAY

book-signing-event-1024x680I am leaving a month from today for Italy and am excited since I will be discovering some new places. One is Naples and I am fortunate enough to have the services of the knowledgeable Tina from Discover Napoli Destinations.  Much more on that while I am in Italy, including photos.

Today, however, I want to announce a GIVEAWAY as a THANK YOU to all of you! I started this blog a little over three and a half years ago, while I was preparing to travel to Italy for three months by myself. I wanted a blog so I would share my photos and write about what I was doing. That way my friends and family could keep up with my adventures. Little did I know that I would end up writing a book, based on this blog. And thanks to all of you, Memoirs of a Solo Traveler – My Love Affair with Italy is selling well.

book-cover-print-version-amazon2-196x2942My blog has reached a milestone with over 5000 followers now and almost 100,000 hits. So to celebrate this, I am giving away 5 autographed copies of the paperback edition of either of my books, winner’s choice. I am also giving away 10 e-book versions of either book, winner’s choice. If you already have the book, you can give it away as a gift! So 15 of you will be winners!

Kindle Cover (3)

All you have to do is leave a comment on any of my blog posts with the hash tag #MilestoneGiveaway and you will be entered in a random drawing to win. I will run this promotion for 10 days and will announce the winners on another blog post at that time. Good luck!

And once more, grazie mille dal mio cuore. Thank you very much from my heart. Your support means more to me than you will ever know.6559354337_8e6e15e248_m (240x240)

 

Un abbraccio e baci! A hug and kisses.

  15. Enjoy your trip to Italy, Naples is an enchanting city. Don’t miss a walk in the old city center (Spacc Napoli, San’Agata, San gregorio armeno) and have a look to the new Underground line stations, filled with contemporary artworks. Naples is a city of contrasts…

    Dear Margie…I do so enjoy reading your blog. Many of your experiences parallel mine. I am now in Italy myself, right in the middle of a 3 month stay. Since I already own your first book, I will not enter the contest, but I will order you Sicily book once I am back in the USA. Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    #MilestoneGiveaway Greetings from Ireland 😛 Am planning on a solo trip myself (first time travelling alone) and delighted to find your blog. Have been to Italy before and long to go back to really savour the sights and sounds. First trip was much to whirlwind. Your experiences as a woman travelling alone give me courage to get going! Great blog.
