As you are all pretty much aware, my book “Going Against The Grain – Italian Style! A Gluten-Free Life Guide and Recipe Book for Staying Healthy and Eating Amazingly!” was released and published in November 2014, and the Kindle format was released this past January 2015.

As a result, I have worked with “Italy Book Tours” to promote my book via a virtual book tour. Many of you may wonder what a ‘virtual’ book tour means? Well, simply put, just like a traditional book tour where an author travels from book store to book store to promote his/her book, similarly my book will travel the web from book reviewer to book reviewer via bloggers who are passionate about reading! In addition to this, we are hosting a giveaway where you will have the opportunity to win 1 of 2 copies of my book! You can enter by following the instructions way below at the end of this post. I encourage all to participate! I’m told it’s worth it 😉

I will take this opportunity to sincerely thank all who have supported me whether by purchasing a book, downloading the ebook or simply being there for me! When I offered a ‘free’ downloadable electronic copy of my book back on April 22nd, 2015 (a one-day super promo) I was overwhelmed to see that there were 886 downloads on that one single day!  I sincerely hope you all enjoyed it and once again, I thank you all as that meant so much to me!

The details of the book as well as the book tour and book stops are here below.

About the book:

Going Against The Grain - Italian Style!

Celiac Guide Book

This two-part book is a vital adjunct to any home attempting to be gluten-free. The first part guides you through early diagnosis and is an essential guide for any beginner diagnosed with celiac disease or some form of gluten sensitivity. You will learn how to identify symptoms of the disease, how celiac disease is diagnosed, and the consequences if left untreated. It will help you to understand how to read labels and how to manage your gluten-free home in a shared environment. It outlines practical advice for parents of children with celiac disease as well as tips for eating out and dealing with social settings such as special occasions or when traveling. Honorary foreword provided by renowned Dr. Peter HR Green, MD – Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University.

Growing up authentically Sicilian, Nuccia Ardagna thought that getting rid of gluten meant giving up her favorite traditional foods, but that could not be further from the truth! Nuccia combines her passion for eating amazingly Italian with her new dietary needs to bring you scrumptious, traditional Italian (and Sicilian) recipes. From simple, classic appetizers to decadent desserts you thought you could never enjoy, every recipe is easy-to-follow and offers beautiful full-color pictures throughout. You can feel confident about entertaining guests and family with these mouth-watering recipes. You can eat healthier, feel better, and truly enjoy living gluten-free while never having to sacrifice great taste! In this book, Nuccia not only shares her personal story with celiac disease but also the recipes she grew up with at home and uses to entertain guests. Look for the bonus section at the end of the book along with a section dedicated to her favorite links and resources.

We hope you enjoy the book and find it helpful in your journey.
