Hello readers!

Just sharing some events I will be speaking at in October.

On October 2nd, I will be speaking at my alma mater Suffolk University on Beacon Hill in Boston. I’m looking forward to sharing my story with students, faculty and staff on how, when, why I wrote THE LOVE FOOL. Books will be on sale on site and at the Suffolk University bookstore. More info at: https://www.suffolk.edu/sawlib/56550.php

On October 15th, Eataly Boston will be hosting Aperitivo with the Author featuring me! I will be speaking about my background, growing up with both cultures, and what inspired me to write THE LOVE FOOL. Aperitivo cocktails and bites will be served, along with a dish of Amatriciana. Tickets also include a copy of THE LOVE FOOL.

Hi everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying or have enjoyed reading The Love Fool. I wanted to let you all know that The Love Fool has recently received 5-star reviews from Readersfavorite.com, Amazon, B&N, Goodreads and more. Thank you to all who have reviewed The Love Fool so far, and for those who haven’t gotten around to it yet, please don’t be shy.

In other news, I’ve been busy planning and appearing at some author events here in New England. Recently, I participated at Author’s Night By The Sea event held at the Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth, NH.

Saturday, April 28, is Independent Bookstore Day! I’m very excited to participate in this awesome event. I’ll be a “guest bookseller” at Cabot Street Books & Cards in Beverly, MA (4pm-6pm), signing copies of The Love Fool, giving away specially designed bookmarks [pictured below], and recommending books that inspired my writing.

On June 3, I will be engaging in an Author Meet & Greet at Barnes & Noble in Burlington, MA – signing books and handing out more of my fun bookmarks.

And in July, I’ll also be participating at the New England Authors Expo in Danvers, MA.

I’m keeping myself busy here in New England, while continuing to market The Love Fool online.

Hey readers!!

Exciting news: I’ve got my hands on the actual paperback copies of my novel The Love Fool! And I have to say: This whole thing seems so surreal. I never imagined I’d hold in my hand a book that I’ve written. Wow! 

I can’t believe it’s almost pub date for this labor of love (no pun intended). And thanks to those who have pre-ordered The Love Fool, your contribution has made my publishing dream a reality.  

These particular copies I hold are for the funder pre-orders only; and I’m signing each and every one of them before they ship out.  So, paperback funders: Your pre-ordered signed advance copies of The Love Fool are beginning to ship. Please check your mailboxes. (Ebook funders: ebook download details ready soon TBA.)

In other news: The official website for The Love Fool has been launched! Check it out at www.thelovefool.com

Guys, MARCH 13 is The Love Fool publication date and it’s almost here!

Lorenzo Petruzziello

Hello dearest readers!

The Love Fool production process has been going smoothly thanks to the Inkshares team.

First: Many of you may have noticed, I’ve recently posted the official book cover for The Love Fool. (For fellow writers, the cover was designed by the talented team at CoverKitchen.) It’s a total deviation from my temporary photo, and I like it because it’s a better representation of what is written inside.

I’m writing this as I begin the final review of the official print proof of The Love Fool. And it’s hitting me again: THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING. Wow! In a couple of months, my book will be in your hands and hopefully we’ll all find ways to discuss it.

With that said, The Love Fool is now listed on Goodreads – so if you are a member of Goodreads, please add The Love Fool to your “To Read” list - and be sure to follow my author profile. Of course, if you are a member of other online book reader websites, please do share – and I will make sure The Love Fool is on it.

Note: An official The Love Fool website is coming soon.

Guys! It is an awesome feeling to see The Love Fool popping up on online bookseller websites including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Hudson Booksellers, and Canada’s Indigo. And I hope to see the book on store shelves too – I’ll definitely be working on that, folks.

Nervous. Excited. Anxious. Cannot Wait!

Lorenzo Petruzziello

Good day readers!

All is moving wonderfully with THE LOVE FOOL publication. As many of you already know, the official release date is 13 March 2018. 

You can now see THE LOVE FOOL listed on prominent retailer websites like Barnes & Noble, Amazon, but more importantly on IndieBound - where readers can find their local independent bookseller and hopefully pre-order. (More on this later.)

We are in the final stages of completing the book cover design. I’m working with a designer recommended by the wonderful staff at Inkshares.  And I cannot wait to share it with you all.

As far as the publication process, the manuscript should be in the galley proof stage by now, and would be coming to me for another review sometime soon. We’re on schedule for the March release and it is super exciting.

The official THE LOVE FOOL website will be coming early 2018.

I’ve also been working on other publications: I’ve been contributing to a lifestyle, food and travel magazine called Intermezzo Magazine; and you’ll see a classic aperitivo drink recipe I contributed to SIP the Magazine – a cocktail focused publication. Look for them at your local newsstand, bookstore or subscribe to each (see links).

I wish you all a festive holiday season, a Merry Christmas, and a happy & safe new year!

-Lorenzo Petruzziello
