Get a clue!
I have a story in the YA anthology: You don't Have A Clue: Latino Mysteries for Teens
, from Arte Publico Press, edited by Sarah Cortez. A *Starred Review* in Book List
gives us bragging rights.
Years ago I swore I'd never write a story set in my hometown of Las Cruces, NM, or placed during the 70's. And I've done just that in "No Soy Loco," but with a little twist: mysterious voices, alien criminals, and eye gouging (otherwise, why go to LC?) A perfect tale for impressionable minds.
Manuel Ramos also has a story in the anthology. The book launch party will be Friday, 7PM, May 20, at the Tattered Cover on Colfax
. As you can see, Ramos will bring a dose of much needed class to the event.
Also on the radar, I'll be at the South Carolina Book Festival
, May 14-15, presenting Saturday on the panel Fantastic Fiction! Werewolves, Vampires and Blood!
the ever serious Sam Morton
and the darkly fashionable Kalayna Price
I'm signing 11AM, on both Saturday and Sunday. More details as we get closer to the date.
My TBR is in serious need of replenishing. If you have any titles to recommend, please post. Any genre, as long as it rocked you.
In the meantime, I can't sing praises loud enough for Sherman Alexie. I just finished War Dances
and have started Ten Little Indians
. The story, "The Search Engine," made my Muse* cry, it was that freakin' awesome.* Hey Muse, you lazy bitch. Why can't you give me such inspiration? But no...it's always Happy Hour for you.
