Book Spotlight-Latina Authors and Their Muses-Mayra Calvani (Editor)

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15) is now--and what better time to learn about some of the fabulous Latina writers.
I will be ordering this book, it sounds really interesting and before that price goes back up. I have trouble reviewing anthologies and this one has a lot of Latina authors included! I think I will take my time reading it--not rushing through to get the review up--I hope you take the time to click through some of the links-I think you will become just as interested as I am in reading it.

About the Book (from Amazon)

An inspirational, entertaining, and informative book focusing on the craft of writing and the practical business of publishing, one that provides aspiring authors with the nuts and bolts of the business. A book that not only showcases prominent figures but emerging voices as well, writers working on a wide range of genres from the literary to the commercial.

In spite of their different backgrounds, education levels, and jobs, two factors more than any others bind these writers together: their passion and commitment to their craft and to sharing their stories with the world in spite of the odds.

Latina Authors and Their Muses is a celebration of creativity, the writer’s life, the passionate quest for spiritual and artistic freedom.

From the Foreword by Leticia Gomez

“Latina Authors and Their Muses is a celebration of creativity and the creative writing process, but it also offers savvy information about the industry itself, as well as agents and publishers. It also provides helpful hints and strategies regarding promotion and marketing, whether you are a fledging Latina writer just getting started or a multi-published, seasoned author who has been around the publishing block once or twice.”
