Born in the Wayeb has been nominated for Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi novel in the 2015 International Latino Book Awards
My novel, Born in the Wayeb: Book One of The Mayan Chronicles has been selected as a finalist in the 2015 International Latino Book Awards in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category. These book awards celebrate worldwide achievement in Latino literature and are presented by Latino Literacy Now in partnership with Las Comadres Para Las Americas and REFORMA, the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos, which is an affiliate of the American Library Association.
I feel so honored to be part of this award ceremony; even if I don’t win the title of Best, I still know I am a winner and that my work is respected by the large Latino population of the world. This announcement gives me encouragement to keep following my dreams of being a writer who specializes in Latino-based stories and memoirs. I am Latina at heart, my work reflects this, and my goal is to educate and entertain readers about the Latino community that I know and love, the people of Mexico.
