Writers often talk about how difficult it is to muster the dedication to write daily, while others complain about the editing or grumble about the publishing process. Those who don’t have a head for business, whine about the marketing.
Now for my second topic: In September, for Mexican Independence Day, Saturday Sept. 16, I was asked to read and discuss Dust Unto Shadow at the East Los Angeles Library at 2 pm.
If I’ve sent you this blog post as an email- YOU ARE INVITED and I will be expecting you! You can see the flyer here: http://colapublib.org/calendar/index.php?com=detail&eID=114787
And to end a torching hot August, today, The Latina Book Club ran an interview on me you can read about it here: http://www.latinabookclub.com/
I woke up this morning thinking about daydreams and the part they’ve played in my life. As a child I was in a constant reverie with elaborate fantasies within my mind that played out like a movie.
Good News, Dust Unto Shadow is gaining momentum!
When I write something, I’m experiencing and reliving my own losses. In Dust Unto Shadow by the end of writing I felt like I’d survived a terrible death.
I found out this week that the television movie, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks airs tomorrow, and cast includes Oprah Winfrey, portraying Lacks’ only surviving daughter.
I read the book and posted my review on Goodreads, in February 13, 2013 giving it a 4 star review, out of a possible 5 and share it with you now.
