Look carefully. The first three words you see are the three most important things you should buy in 2018.

A murder mystery might not seem like a holiday book but EAE has Chanukah, Christmas, NO NYE (bc ugh), f/f love under twinkly lights, AND murder. That's about as festive as I get.

Reminder that the concept of "I made it all by myself with no help from anybody" is a complete fucking myth unless you were born from the primordial void like a chaos god and lived alone naked in a cave in the wilderness from that point onward.

Also realizing now that my slip on di Sangro/DiSangro is due to thinking they were variant spellings. I've found so many names (for places & people) to have more than one variant within Italian usage--now I know this one is specific to Italian-Americans!

Ohhhh, that sounds excellent. Let me talk to my editor about that! We have copyeditors checking things but I'd love to have an experienced eye focused just on the Italian. And let me know your freelance fee, of course :)

Just let my editor know, and the fix is being made! DM me your address and it will be on its way as soon as there are book-shaped versions :)

Of course! I got so used to my Italian-American name spellings, AHH! Can I send you a (fully double-checked) ARC when they are ready? I want to say thank you for saving me from a serious brain fumble!

Just looked over things and you're 1000% right, I literally have the name down correctly where it derives from a town in Abbruzzo, and my brain CHANGED IT. Ahhhhhh, yeah, this is getting fixed.

They're just called the five families. I really wanted to use "gli amici del amici" bc it has that perfect balance of looking warm but also being a bit ominous...but it doesn't sound as good in translation, plus it was an actual thing and I thought those were best avoided :)

Puglia folktales are a lot about shepherds. Haha. My dad took an aptitude test in high school and got "shepherd"--no joke! (How was that even on a HS aptitude test?)

I love Italo Calvino's omnibus translation as a starting point. I've read some in Italian but admit that I probably couldn't have gotten through thousands of pages that way!

One that is really odd to me is "mafia" because it's such an Italian-American (and Sicilian derived) word. So I use it to say the story has "mafia-like" families but they would never use that word!
