Giveaway: “Dream of Venice Book”

You’ll notice that I’m a little excited to be included in the Dream of Venice book if you’ve been following me on social media or the site. Venice is a city I adore, and this book would have been a welcome addition to my coffee table. These photos show the best things about the city: its haunting side and its unpredictable side. Day-trippers rarely see this side. Since the day it arrived in my mailbox, I have been staring at it with joy.

Now I’m able to share it with you, one lucky reader.

“Dream of Venice.”

JoAnn Locktov (editor of Dream of Venice) has graciously offered me one copy of her book to giveaway on this website. To enter, you only need to sign-up for the Italy Explained newsletter. I will give away two copies of the book to those who were signed up prior to 7/12/2014. This is a small thank you from me for being early adopters. The giveaway will be open from 8-12/12/2014. I will draw a name (or maybe a bowl out of my kitchen cupboard, but I am not certain yet) on 22/12/2014.

These are the rules for “Dream of Venice”, giveaway:

  • To enter the contest and win the copy of “Dream of Venice”, you must sign up for the Italy explained newsletter. You can do this via the form at bottom of the post or the one in the upper right of the page. Sign ups made by December 8th 2014 will receive one entry per person. Sign ups made before 7/12/2014 will be entered twice.
  • Before I remove duplicates, I will not allow you to sign up for more than one. You won’t be eligible if you are a member or associate of Italy Explained. My family is already a winner just because they are related to me. Right?



  • I will draw one winner from all of the names in my newsletter subscribers on 22 December 2014. This is not modern-day, you guys. This is a literal hat. It literally draws a name. (And I’m able to use the word “literally.”
  • The winner will need to send me the shipping information. Make sure you have your correct email address when you sign up. JoAnn will send the winner a copy of “Dream of Venice” directly. There is no geographic restriction on who can enter – JoAnn will ship any copy of this book to anyone in the world.
