Gratification and Gratitude

One of the most gratifying things about writing is hearing what others think about my work. And when people take the time to write an actual book review, I am so grateful that they not only had lovely things to say, but that they made the extra effort to share it in a public forum. So it was with much gratitude that I recently read this review of my book Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps, written by Laura Morelli, author of numerous books on Venice, including The Gondola Maker. Here’s what she posted on Amazon:

Seductive Venice is unlike any other guidebook to La Serenissima! Kathleen Gonzalez’s writing draws you in from the first paragraph, and you’ll want to drop everything and follow in the footsteps of one of history’s most compelling characters: Casanova. This is Venice like you’ve never seen it before. Through the various walks in the book, you slip back in time and view this enchanting city through the eyes of an eighteenth-century daredevil. An engrossing and entertaining read, whether you travel to Venice by plane, train, or armchair.”

Mille grazie!
