After a long journey (viaggio!) Fitzroy Books has acquired SECRETS IN TRANSLATION, my YA novel set in Italia. Here is the blurb:
"What seventeen-year-old girl wouldn't want to return to Italy and meet a hot young Italian university student? For Alessandra, the answer is definitely more complicated -- and dangerous."
Here is the author page on the website:

It will be fun to join two other BBers (Marcia and Alice) in this venture!
Many thanks from the heart (dal cuore) to all you BBers for your constant support!
Aloha and mille grazie,
Tori :pizza :palmtree

Many, many thanks --  molte grazie -- to all you BlueBoarders! This is truly a community nonpareil.  :grouphug2 :grouphug2 :hi5
Writing is a solitary endeavor, and only those of us who trudge along the path understand the ups and downs and joys and frustrations. We help each other out in so many ways, and being able to celebrate with like-minded friends is so affirming and uplifting.  :cloud9
Now, we wait for more good news from each of you, so we can find hope in your journeys, too!
Happy writing and illlustrating, all! :typing :paint We can do this!  :thankyou
Aloha and mille grazie,
Tori :palmtree :pizza
