Divine Dantes Book III
There are better things to do today than think about the Superbowl. Okay. Well. Maybe not. I still wanted to publish the cover to book #3 of The Divine Dantes Trilogy that finds young rocker Edward T. Nad on a cruise with his beloved Beatrice. By the end of the month I'll let you know where Cruising in Paradise is available. And if you have a moment or two, now that football ends tonight, you can catch up on the first two books in the award-winning trilogy that follows the characters of Dante's The Divine Comedy in a modern world.
“[A] lively and good-natured work with a great deal of humor . . ..”

A Best Second Novel award finalist in the Indie Book Awards, "The Divine Dantes: Squirt Guns in Hades" is the first in a trilogy of laugh-out-loud books paralleling Dante Alighieri's classic poem, "The Divine Comedy," where the characters of The Inferno are encountered in modern times with surprising results. At the center is Eddie, a young rocker who is heartbroken after his girlfriend, Beatrice, leaves for Venice. This not only ends their relationship, but also the world's greatest two-person rock band. At Beatrice's request, Virgil-their erstwhile manager-cum-travel-agent guides Eddie to Europe to meet her without Eddie being in on the secret. Will Eddie want to see Beatrice? Will the band get back together? And if it does, can Eddie settle on a name for it? Read this literary, rock, love story today!
Book 2 of The Divine Dantes's Infernal Trilogy finds Eddie and Virgil in Barcelona, Spain. Eddie, the young rocker with an active mind, thinks they are there to get on a cruise. Virgil, however, has tricked Eddie and arranged for Bea to secretly meet them. Meantime, Virg and Eddie visit famous Barcelona landmarks (La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, La Rambla Street, etc) as Eddie adds his trademark commentary. Will Eddie speak to Bea when she arrives? And if he will, does their two-person band get back together?
