My Big News of the Year!

Many of you saw my news on Twitter or Facebook, but I of course have to share here as well. My book baby debuts in May, and my BABY baby is due in August!

I've been sitting on this news for a long time, so long that I'm nearly halfway through this pregnancy already. We've had some issues the past couple of years, and I just wanted to be sure this time was going to have a better outcome. I'm so excited that this year, hubs and I will become parents!

And LOOK AT THOSE SHOES!! I can't stop staring at them. Sure, she'll be what, three years old before she can fit in them? But they're SO ADORABLE I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!

Swag with Pre-order!


It's so hard to believe the wait is nearly over. Wasn't it only yesterday that we were at the year mark? Then 100 days? And now, TWO MONTHS! 

Wish You Were Italian is available for pre-order, so for some special fun, I'm offering swag with your pre-order! 
I'll send you a personalized bookplate (which is a fancy sticker I'll sign for you to put inside the book!) along with two signed bookmarks. 

At this time, I'm only able to offer this promo to readers in the United States.
I'm so sorry for that. I love all of you and I wish shipping prices weren't an issue. 

Take a screenshot or some sort of pic of your order confirmation (without sharing your personal billing info) and email it to kristinraewrites(at)gmail(dot)com along with your mailing address and personalization details (what name you want on the bookplate), and I'll send it out a soon as possible! I'll be offering this as long as my supplies last or the book becomes available, whichever happens first. 

Handy links for pre-ordering:

My local indie, Blue Willow Bookshop

You can pre-order hardbacks OR paperbacks, signed and personalized from here! 
If you do this, you won't need a bookplate, but I can send you a super limited edition Riomaggiore magnet that will make TOTAL sense once you read the book!

(I even took that picture when I was there!)

Other links:

Each pre-order = bookplate + two bookmarks
Each pre-order for personalized book from Blue Willow = magnet + two bookmarks

Promotion open until May 6, 2014 or until I run out of bookplates!

Stay tuned for a giveaway around book launch time.

*US only, sorry! *hugs*
