Jo Linsdell: Italian For Tourists and Promo Day for Writers!

RYCJ of OEBooks posted a fabulous interview with Jo Linsdell the author of Italian For Tourists and the organizer of Promo Day for writers.

Jo Linsdell visited Italy a few years ago and never left. (Reminds me of my co-blogger, DeLynne, a Texan transplanted in Australia who just happens to speak and teach Italian.) After learning to speak Italian, Jo wrote an user-friendly phrasebook of basics for tourists. Sounds like the perfect book for me!

Jo is also the organizer of Promo Day which is a free annual online event for writers. The next Promo Day will be held this Saturday May 15. The website and information regarding the workshops/forums available are listed in the interview.

I loved reading about Jo's journey towards writing and publishing Italian For Tourists and her insights on traveling and communicating in Italy. If you plan to vacation in Italy or are a writer interested in Promo Day, check out the the interview at OEBooks for more information.



  1. Thanks Lesa! I'm sure Jo appreciates you sharing the interview & Promo Day with your readers as well. You're a gem... and you too DeLynne!

  2. Yes I do. Thank you so much for your support, both for PROMO DAY and for my book 'Italian for Tourists'. Much appreicated :)
