Here we go again with a new year, a new decade, new book events and another novel in the works! Check the Events! page for details!
Back at the computer, working on book 4, Eternal Stones events keep coming. I'm especially excited to be home again at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Des Plaines in November. This is where it all began, so coming full circle to share my latest book is truly special. See you there!
The book tour is under way, and the energy is palpable as everyone shares such similar, hilarious, insightful memories of European travel as depicted in Eternal Stones and Other Memories of Greece. I look forward to meeting you all!
It's coming...the latest book by Paula Burzawa entitled Eternal Stones and Other Memories of Greece. Already bestowed with the Editor's Choice award, this collection of essays is set to release before the end of 2018, so stay tuned, your passport will once again be stamped with a marvelous return to the Mediterranean.
While research continues on my third novel, the sequel to Tasso's Journey, a fourth book is also underway! A gathering of short stories and essays detailing modern day travels to Greece, and in particular, the village of Vassara is currently in the works. As a sort of 'Seasons of Sun' sequel that so many readers requested, I just had to gather the 'what happened next' in this funny but also warm-hearted collection that will take you along on a journey to the village that has touched the hearts of so many. With today's technology, even Vassara has found a way to move with the changes. Some things, however, like family and village pride, will forever stay the same. I think you'll love this one as much as the first! Stay tuned...details to come....
Research continues for the THIRD book in this series, detailing Tasso's daughter Maria on her journey to America. We'll pick up where Tasso's Journey left off as the adventure continues. Also, an insightful and humorous collection of short essays on Greece in modern day is in the works. Stay tuned.....
