Announcing a new release:
Born in the Wayeb will be on sale December 15, 2014.
The release of this book is a huge deal for me. I have been working on the novel for close to three years and am finally going to see it in print. It’s been professionally edited by Jennifer Caven of Mainly Words, who was willing to hold my hand throughout the process, and I am grateful to Brandi McCann for capturing the image I had in my head for the cover so beautifully.
For anyone who knows me, the Mayan culture has always been a source of fascination to me and the idea of setting a novel in ancient Mayan times has been a long-time goal. I am eager to start on book two, which will require a bit more research into the Mayan concept of the Underworld.
I want this novel to bring to life a bit of history and culture that is often overlooked in today’s society. I feel the Hispanic world is as rich a source of information for possible historical novels as those that are so aptly written based on European events. Plus, we need more diversity in books. I hope readers enjoy discovering the characters in this book as much as I had fun creating them.
