Listen to our latest podcast episode with best-selling author and Under the Influence Podcast host, Jo Piazza + WIN one of three copies of her soon-to-be-released book, The Italian Inheritance. 

We were thrilled to have best-selling author, journalist and podcast host, Jo Piazza, on The Creator Effect Podcast this week. Jo hosts the popular podcast, Under the Influence,  and we sat down with her to discuss the cultural impact of influencers and the key role women have in the influencer space.  Jo helps us explore the benefits and challenges of the influencer industry, especially for female creators, and the remarkable empowerment women find through social media. 

How much do influencers & creators impact our culture and the decisions we make? 

We also discuss the potential need for regulations and accountability on social media,  especially regarding parenting, political views, and mental health. Finally, we dive into the power of community and the positive ways that social media can play a role in connecting us to each other.

The Sicilian Inheritance 
Jo also gave us a glimpse into her upcoming novel, The Sicilian Inheritance, a compelling story set in Sicily that weaves together history, feminism, and mystery. Check out the link below to learn more about the book and pre-order your copy -  coming April 2024. Pre-Order Your Copy HERE.

From bestselling author and award-winning journalist Jo Piazza, comes a transporting novel rooted in the author’s own family history about a long-awaited trip to Sicily, a disputed inheritance, and a family secret that some will kill to protect . . .

Sara Marsala barely knows who she is anymore after the failure of her business and marriage. On top of that, her beloved great-aunt Rosie passes away, leaving Sara bereft with grief. But Aunt Rosie’s death also opens an escape from her life and a window into the past by way of a plane ticket to Sicily, a deed to a possibly valuable plot of land, and a bombshell family secret. Rosie believes Sara’s great-grandmother Serafina, the family matriarch who was left behind while her husband worked in America, didn’t die of illness as family lore has it . . . she was murdered.

Thus begins a twist-filled adventure that takes Sara all over the picturesque Italian countryside as she races to solve a mystery and prove her birthright. Flashing back to the past, we meet Serafina, a feisty and headstrong young woman in the early 1900s thrust into motherhood in her teens, who fought for a better life not just for herself but for all the women of her small village. Unsurprisingly it isn’t long before a woman challenging the status quo finds herself in danger.

As Sara discovers more about Serafina she also realizes she is coming head-to-head with the same menacing forces that took down her great-grandmother. At once an immersive multigenerational mystery and an ode to the undaunted heroism of everyday women. [] 

Enter to win one of three copies of the book on pre-order, set to release in April 2024.

I love to listen to true crime podcasts! There are so many I like to listen to, but my favorite has to be Swindled by A Concerned Citizen. What interests me about The Sicilian Inheritance is the mystery of the story twisted into some historical fiction! Two of my favorite genres!
