A most royal sale

Dear friends:

There is a privileged individual that happens to have two birthdays. Queen Elizabeth of Britain has her biological birthday on April 21st but will be officially celebrated with a big parade of the Horse Guards that has been nicknamed as “Trooping the Colour” on June 17th; it will feature more than 1,400 officers and soldiers and 400 musicians in full dress rehearsals. The London weather prodded British royalty to delay celebrations until summer.

Many readers all over the United Kingdom have been faithfully following our blogged articles ever since we started our web page in May 2016. They are a discreet bunch, hardly ever writing a commentary, but their presence is noticed when the flags of England, Wales and Scotland pop in our statistics. We would like to correspond their politeness with a special deal for our first novel: “Madame D.C. – Three voyages.”

Starting on June 12th 2017 there will be a special 1-week countdown sale of it in Amazon.co.uk with an initial affordable price of 0.99 pounds sterling; every 2 days the price will slowly rise until reaching its regular one on June 19th. Don’t procrastinate and take advantage of this sale to sample our prose, share it or gift it away. We’re confident that you’ll find it unusually exciting. Thank you very much for your silent yet strong support for our writings.

Cheerio!

Celebrating our first anniversary

Dear friends:

We started this web page and blog right before May 1st, the International Workers’ day, one year ago and we have written in earnest ever since it. Initially we designed our page to be a publicity tool for our writing endeavor but progressively we have been tackling issues well beyond a literary scope.

Your faithful reading and support has prodded us to continue researching and studying to bring you interesting, updated information on medical and sociological issues that concern the hyper-connected modern classes. We made friends all over the world and they have graced us with their feedback.

We promise to continue our work in order to bring you that information in a concise but clear way in order to reach the widest possible reader spectrum. We must especially thank Noel Marie, my daughter, and Gian Luca, my son, for their technical contributions for this page and their moral support for me.

Let’s raise our glasses with a big smile and clink them with a wish: Salud!

A most celestial sale

Dear friends:

A special day is coming up for all those of us who, like our ancestors did for thousands of years, follow closely the movement of the stars above.  On Monday March the 20th at 6.29 EDT the Vernal Equinox will materialize. At that time of the year the Sun crosses the celestial equator on its way north along the ecliptic, which will make days and nights approximately equal.

The term Equinox derives from the fusion of two Latin words; “Aequus” means “equal” and “nox” means “night.” On the Equinox the planet Earth’s two hemispheres are receiving the Sun’s rays about equally because the tilt of the Earth is zero relative to the Sun. In times of the Roman Empire, the astrologers considered it an auspicious moment to share with the loved ones; families made a sacrifice to the Sun God to foster peace and prosperity to all.

Being a proud Italian-American who has inherited the belief that the astral movements have an influence in our lives directly from my mother Gladys, I feel obliged to offer a little sacrifice to thank my most faithful blog readers. On March 20th a countdown sale of my novel “Madame D.C.-Book I” will start in the Kindle Store of the Amazon.com page so you can buy the book at a discounted pricing for a week, in order to read it yourself, share it with friends or give it as a present to that special person in your life.

Thank you very much for your continued support to our writing endeavours and we promise to keep striving at the laptop’s keyboard, inspired by sweet muses and battling terrible demons, all at the same time and in earnest. You are the real reason why we sit down every morning at 7 AM to start typing.  As we like to say at the end of our blogs: don’t leave me alone.
