Book Blitz and Giveaway: THE SECRETS OF VILLA ROSSO - by Linn B. Halton

Today I'm super excited to be sharing some information and an international giveaway for this lovely book! Read on to find out more...

Some places stay with you forever… When Ellie Maddison is sent on a business trip to Southern Italy, she's reminded why she loves her job – set amongst rolling vineyards and rich olive groves, the beautiful Villa Rosso is the perfect escape from her life back home. But what Ellie isn't prepared for is the instant connection she feels to the estate's director Max Jackson, or the secrets they share that are as intertwined as the rambling vines that cover Villa Rosso. It's not long before Ellie finds herself entangled in the history of the place, trying to understand the undeniable effect Max is having on her. As their relationship grows, what will Ellie discover about this idyllic villa and those who have walked through its doors? What started as a simple work trip will change Ellie's life forever.

Do you work from home, or spend long periods in front of the PC? As a writer I admit that sometimes I don’t take as many breaks as I should but here are my top tips for making my working day as pleasant as possible:

- Have a mega comfortable chair or typing stool – something your back and posture will love! 

De-clutter but have everything you need within easy reach. If necessary, have a box with a lid or pretty mugs to hold pens, stapler etc. 

Make your environment as visually attractive as you can – make it bright and go minimalist. Use colours that make you feel happy. 

On dismal, grey days brighten the room by using a sidelight that gives a soft glow. 

Ambience is everything – I use an ultrasonic diffuser. Easy to plug in, cost £12 and I add a few drops of essential oils (lavender, geranium etc) to the water. It also has an LED light which changes colour but can be switched off. 

Making your environment welcoming, colourful, fragrant and uncluttered makes a huge difference – believe me, I know! 

Thanks so much Amy for being on the tour! Much appreciated, and I will see you in July.
