Recently, I had the pleasure of writing a guest post for Miss Tamie of The Book Hookup, on the subject of Muses. You can read the post and see the artwork I included here.
Last week, I mentioned a Book Club that put together a list of refreshments to accompany each chapter of "Gabriel's Inferno."
These week, I want to mention a reader who took her copy of my novel to Assisi. You can see the photographs she shared with me above.
Assisi is a special city to me and to many other people. It was the home of St. Francis and today, it houses the great Basilica, in which he is buried. You can view a short video of the crypt here.
St. Francis was not only a generous and holy man, he was very wise. He had compassion for the sick, generosity for the poor, a respect for nature and an affection for animals. You can read more about his life and what Dante thought about him here. Perhaps one of his best known writings is his prayer of peace:
If you have a photograph of your copy of "Gabriel's Inferno" (either paperback or e-reader) that you'd like to send to me, you can do so by emailing me through this site, or sending it to me via Twitter or Facebook.
Where would you like to take the Professor? Where do you think he should go? I look forward to your pictures.
All the best and thanks for reading,
PS. The lovely ladies of KLB Virtual Events are hosting a book blog tour for me from September 19 - October 3. There will be interviews, book reviews and giveaways. I'll be posting more details soon.
