Contract Offer!

Hijole! (for you non-Spanish speakers, that roughly translates to “Holy Moly”!)

I got an email today from the Director of Arte Publico Press (Nicolas Kanellos PhD) out of the University of Houston that a contract is coming my way to publish my novel.

I was with my parents in south Texas when I read the email, and the first person I told (alright, I shouted) was my dad, my biggest supporter. We spent the day visiting the grave sites of my maternal grandmother, great-aunt, grandfather and great-great grandmother. In the next few days we’ll visit the grave sites of my paternal grandmother, grandfather and aunt. How incredibly fitting, because this book is a tribute to my family, past and present.

Much love to my amazing family and my writers’ group for supporting me throughout this endeavor.
