Laura Florand: Italian Festivals and Book Tours

I'm excited to announce that Laura Florand, author of THE CHOCOLATE THIEF,  will be attending the Women's Fiction Festival in Matera, Italy before going on a book tour in the area.

Laura has received some great reviews for CHOCOLATE THIEF:

“It’s like when you find that amazing piece of chocolate — you take a bite, and it sits on your tongue and melts into a pool of liquid heaven: Florand has managed to capture that emotional experience and put it into the pages of her novel. She’s also captured some of the political parts of chocolatiering and mixed in a pretty serious romance to boot. This is definitely a pleasure to read, and the hints for excellent stateside chocolatiers in the back had me firing up Google!” – RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

I'll be attending the conference as well--hope to see some of you there!
