It's hard to believe, but in less than three months the first of the Italian Kitchen Mysteries, Murder and Marinara, releases in stores and online. The cover has been finalized and includes some wonderful quotes from Livia Washburn, author of the Fresh Baked Mysteries, and from Jenn McKinlay, whose Cupcake Bakery mystery, Going, Going, Ganache, hit the New York Times bestseller list in April. Many thanks to these generous writers for their advance praise!
The ARCs, or advance reading copies, have also arrived. These are uncorrected proofs of the book intended for reviewers, but the publisher sends the author some copies as well. I have two lovely stacks of books, so watch for giveaways in the coming weeks!
