Rome's Angels & Demons: Launch Party!

I love a good party!  Today we are celebrating the launch of Rome's Angels & Demons: the Insider's Guide -- my latest guide to the city of Rome:
In Angels & Demons, Dan Brown places his fictional characters in the very real city of Rome, lacing together historical realities and fictional possibilities to create a tale so entrancing that copies of the book were seen in the hands of the faithful who converged on St. Peter’s to mourn the death of Pope John Paul II.

As a lover of both fiction and Rome, I wrote this guide to give readers and viewers of Angels & Demons a deeper appreciation of the history that underlies Dan Brown’s story. In part, this guide draws on my book A Journey into Michelangelo’s Rome, which explores the life and career of the man who did more than any other to shape the art and architecture of the Eternal City. Not only did Michelangelo inspire artists such as Raphael and Bernini, he also designed many of the defining landmarks in the city through which Langdon and Vittoria race to save the Vatican.
The book is filled with interesting tidbits and photos -- including photos by my dear friend, Miss Expatria!
And here's the best part:  the ebook is FREE!  Talk about party favors, eh!

Angela, I'm so excited about your Angels and Demons book and promotion! I've been spending the week talking about Italy and books at A Traveler's Library, and in an hour I'll be going to see the movie. Tomorrow I'll post about it, and link to your page here. This is a GREAT idea. I've downloaded and printed out (sorry, enviros) and I'm going to LOVE the guidebook.
