I really appreciate your kind words about the books. I’m pleased to report I’m finishing the sequel to “The Raven” now and should know its release date soon.
Recently, a reader visited Florence and was kind enough to share some photographs with me. She has given me permission to share them with you, too, since they relate to my new Florentine Series.
When I was writing “The Raven,” I spent time in Florence researching the novel. I walked through the neighbourhoods and the alleys. I spent time looking up at the Duomo. I stood by the Arno River and watched it flow.
Here are two pictures of the alley Raven found herself in that fateful night:
I should mention that the graffiti is accidental to my choice of alley, but it’s certainly interesting.
I have a few more photos I’ll be sharing in the next couple of weeks.
I wanted to mention that Perling and Elizabeth, two readers, have started a “Gabriel’s Inferno” podcast. They are broadcasting live on Sunday evenings and are proceeding chapter by chapter. On Sunday, April 12th, they’ll be discussing Chapter 5 at 7PM ET. They welcome readers around the world to join them, either by posting on the chat section of their page, or by sending in questions.
You can find their podcast here and listen to previous episodes. Feel free to share the link with others. They’re hosting a giveaway of two autographed copes of “The Raven” and five signed bookmarks. (Autographed by yours truly; the giveaway is open internationally)
All the best and thank you for reading,
