Uniquely Yucatan- blatant self promotion

Long ago in a Writers’ Group far far away, a sequel was born. Well, not that long ago, December 2015, but my life has been so chaotic that I just realized I never told you all about it until today. I have four stories in Uniquely Yucatan stories mostly true, spiced with artistic license.  Which makes three anthologies that you can own that contain stories written by me. You can either buy a copy online or at the Merida English Library. Our Yucatan and Uniquely Yucatan not only interesting ready they are pretty volumes, and would make a lovely souvenir or gift. Right along with the rest of the self promotion, you need to know that if you follow the links from my blog to Amazon, I get a small commission, which won’t affect your sales price in any way. To be honest, I make very little money from the links, I’ve gotten a total of one check for $10 usd. ...

Not an everyday walk in the park

My friend, Cherie Pettillo, sent me this video link. It made me smile, especially the eyes glowing in the dark. I hope it makes you smile too! The music is cheery too. Also if you aren’t already reading her weekly column in the Yucatan Times, you really should check it out! This week’s column can be read here. In addition to Cherie,I am very fortunate to be able to count among my friends some absolutely awesome and inspiring women. Two of which just had books published recently! Dr. B, Lorraine Baillie Bowie,Ph.D., just released a new book, the first in a series,The Science of Finding Love That Lasts! It is so insightful that I wish I could buy everyone I know a copy. Maryetta Ackenbom, who has had many short stories published, just came out with her first full length novel, Georgia’s Hope. Writing like Maryetta’s doesn’t happen by accident, she is a master of her craft and this novel is fabulous!  After ...

Psst wanna read a good book?

As I am sure you read on Joanna’s blog, the Merida Writer’s Group has put together an anthology. I am pleased and proud to announce,Our Yucatan: Tales and Poems, Mostly True, But Laced With Artistic License is now available on Amazon as an e-book. I feel very proud to be included in this anthology as both a writer and illustrator. Most of the illustrations were done by Greenwood but I did two very simple ones and am inordinately excited that they are in the book. I would take it as a personal favor if you bought our book and then went the extra step to write a review on Amazon. Getting favorable reviews is a big help to us and I sincerely appreciate you doing it.

Tzeitel & Eliza

Here is a story that I wrote for the writer’s group. The assignment was to describe the meeting between two fictional or historical characters. They didn’t need to ever have met.   Tzeitel & Eliza New York, America. Her family was there, Momma, Poppa and her two younger sisters. Motel, her husband, had promised that they would join them as soon as possible. It seemed that their journey would be taking longer than expected. From Russia, after a stop in Germany, they had found their way to London. Just one boat ride away from the fabled land of America. Tzeitel didn’t want to leave London, not even for the golden shores of America. When she had begged not to marry Lazar Wolf, the butcher, her father had told her “It seems that you are not fated to be a rich woman”, but she was a happy one. Even working made her happy, instead of raising chickens and milking the cows, ...
