Milano, Italy (PressExposure) March 10, 2014 -- A. Scott's debut novel, The Cornuta Curse, has hit Amazon's Top 100 Best Sellers List in Italian Travel, just three months after its release.
Inspired by the nature, people and history of the Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera in Italy, The Cornuta Curse, is Book One of the Love Lock series, a travel fiction collection set in the world's most well-preserved medieval fishing villages.
In such a setting, where the old world fuses with the new, Indie Author A. Scott explores the behaviours, traditions and superstitions surrounding infidelity, past and present, and one woman's determination to break a 500-year-old curse, which may or may not be responsible for generations of adultery in her family.
Ranked number 53, in Amazon's Top 100, The Cornuta Curse out ranks international non-fiction and fiction authors including Rick Steves and Lonely Planet travel guides on the area and international, New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Fiction Authors including Vincent Zandri and Stacey Joy.
Praised by reviewers for her evocative and colourful writing, A. Scott, who has spent time living in the Cinque Terre, comments on the quick success of The Cornuta Curse,
"It's difficult to not fall in love with the setting of the Cinque Terre. Anyone who has visited will find themselves immediately falling into the folds of an old world where kings rule the castles, pirates rule the seas and men rule the steep terraces of vines to produce wine that was once drunk by kings and queens throughout Europe. And once in, you'll forget your modern life and never want to leave.
"The protagonist, Mara, has been described by readers as tough, fiery and independent - a modern woman in an ancient world. Just as all of us are when we first step into the Cinque Terre. The Cornuta Curse attempts to share this unique experience with readers who have been and those still to go."
