Summer has truly arrived here in Italy, and it is hot! With temperatures of up to 40°C and high humidity levels, writing becomes difficult as your brains start to melt. Thank goodness for air conditioning! (Although I might be cursing that same godsend by September, when the electricity bill arrives!).
The thought of our four-day break to the mountains in Tuscany is what is keeping me going at the moment, a momentary respite from the heat here in the Po Valley and a chance to get some research done for the book I’m currently writing. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing the Grotta del Vento, some caves up in the mountains which feature in a scene in the book!
So while we are all sweltering in this terrible heat, why not take five minutes to enter this competition:
One Stop Fiction are giving one lucky person the chance to win 60 books, either in paperback or ebook format. There are a lot of great books in the prize, including mine! So if you’re looking for some summer (and autumn, and winter) reading, why not enter? Someone’s got to win 🙂
