My Book is Launched

I had my first “book launch party” yesterday at my San Miguel de Allende casa, and all went well. We had a crowd of 30 squeezed into our living room and flowing out into the adjoining patio. It was very exciting to get such wonderful support and interest in my book, Under the Salvadoran Sun. I read a few passages of the book just to spike the interest of my potential readers, never disclosing too much.  I forgot to mention that at the back of the book, I’ve listed questions for Book Group discussions.  I’d be glad to Skype with any book groups who choose my book. Just let me know day and time and we can have a spicy conversation. I’d love to get feedback on what you liked and didn’t like about the story. 

The book is now available for Kindle, also. I’m working on getting it formatted for the nook and ipad. I’ll keep you posted! 

I will be traveling back by car from Mexico in early April, heading north to Portland, Oregon. Let me know if you would like me to stop in your city or town and do a book reading at a local bookstore or private venue. I’ll try to make that happen. I will post some photos of the book launch later this week.  

El Salvador’s election is coming up and I’m paying close attention. Many of my friends in the Bajo Lempa, the region described in the novel, will be affected by the results. 

In the meantime, click on BOOK in my menu and read some sample passages from Under the Salvadoran Sun.
