Ready for a Trip to Italy? I Wrote "It Takes a Villa" Just For You!

If you've been paying attention to my Amazon page, you've seen it hiding for a while. I started writing this book in October 2020, for all of us (myself included) who were feeling cooped up because of the pandemic. It Takes a Villa will whisk you away to one of my favorite places: Italy's Amalfi Coast.

You will love It Takes A Villa if you love:

Grumpy/sunshine

Fixer-upper/home rehabs

Italian grandmas

I love this next installment of the Green Valley Heroes series! Charming firefighter? Check. Grumpy heroine? Check. Secrets between them from when they knew each other back in high school? Check. Time to finally settle the score? Double check.

“I’ll never admit it, but the line between Darby and Violet was once blurred in my own mind. They’re both my ideal woman, though one I created and the other materialized. Seeing the woman I had invented personified was what prompted me to speak to her that first night. If there had never been a Violet, there may never have been a Darby, or an us.”
Kilby Blades, Chrysalis

“Before you spend a single dollar or a single minute on a new marketing approach, think critically about how a specific approach gels with your library.”
Kilby Blades, The Book Marketing Audit: Get Better Results with a Better Plan

“I smiled more widely before we both went back to our tests. Mr. Taylor rolled his eyes. I didn’t care what he thought of us, or teenage love, or making goo-goo eyes at one another during a serious test. I didn’t care what anyone thought, because I knew. I knew Roxy was the best thing that had ever happened to me and that moving here was the best thing that ever happened to her. I knew this summer would be epic. I knew college was a long way away. And I knew that, one day, I would marry that girl.”
Kilby Blades, Friended: A Nostalgia Songfic
