Prosecco & Prose Newsletter

.

Lisa MontanaroI love all things Italian and my favorite drink is Prosecco! I also love all things book-related. Put them together and what do you get? Prosecco & Prose, that’s what.

I love connecting with readers, writers, and lovers of creativity in all of its forms. And if we can do that over a virtual glass of bubbly, even better. I like to share updates on my writing journey, book recommendations, musings on the writing life and community, and introduce you to great authors.

So let’s keep the conversation going! Sign up and step into my enoteca (that’s “wine bar” in Italian… sounds so much nicer, right?).

Your first virtual glass of bubbly is on me.

Ciao ~ Lisa
