I’m excited to announce that my fourth book on Italy is nearing completion. Since I returned from Italy, I wrote the final chapters about a place near and dear to my heart. Anyone who has been reading my blog, realizes that whenever I spend time on the Amalfi Coast, I am invigorated, inspired, and happy. A peacefulness envelops me, and I see this place as a paradise.

I can’t get it out of my head. So you won’t be too surprised to learn that My Amalfi Coast Love Affair is the title of this soon-to-be-published labor of love.

In this book, I relate my experiences and try to impart a sense of my love affair with the Amalfi Coast to you. I hope you’ll feel like you’re there with me as I share my stories, in no particular order, with you.

The first editing process is complete and I am almost finished with the revision. Soon I will send the manuscript back to my editor, Susan Hughes, from My Independent Editor, and she will do a final proofread. After I receive it, I’ll go over it again, and then send it to be formatted. I will be self-publishing this book, as I did with my other books about Italy.

You may be familiar with the photo of Positano on the cover I designed. It’s one I shot in 2016 when I stayed there for two weeks to work on my novel, Critical Cover-Up.

What do you think of my cover design? With some luck, I’m hopeful for an early Fall release. I’ll keep you posted for sure. The book will be available on Amazon in digital and paperback formats.

And as always, I’ll  be happy to mail autographed copies to anyone who wants one. More on that later. Stay tuned, and thank you all for your solid support and interest in my books and writing about Italy.


Grazie and Ciao

        Yes, I am very excited about how easily the Italian book translated into French. Although we had to write a new section on French food. I will be sure to send you a copy for your next trip!

    Mrs, I am looking for to read your book. I have been looking at going to the Amalfi coast and Sorrento since quite a while but I am concern about having to go through Naples and the pickpockets at the train station among other places. Is it something that will be mentioned in your book ? Grazie, Celine

    • margieinitaly

      Yes, Celine. I talk about this in the book and various options of getting around. I once was afraId of going through Naples too. Hiring a private driver and taking a ferry are good options. I think you’ll enjoy the book. I highly recommend not to miss this beautiful part of Italy❤️. Thank you for sharing and following my blog
