Book description …
The story of my Sicily connection is fun to tell. I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about Sicily, and how our family in America reconnected with our relatives across the sea. There were two brothers that were separated at a young age because of the strict rules of immigration back in the early 1900s. A hundred years later, a reunion of two families finally took place. There were sad times, happy adventures and special moments and memories that will last a lifetime.
Even if you couldn’t submit a video this year, you can still promote your book across your social media accounts. Consider creating a video about your book and posting that. Ask your friends and family to view your video and to “like” it. Any amount of promotion helps your book to sell and social media is a great place to start. Who knows? Maybe you’ll submit the winning video to next year’s Show Us Your Love contest!
