2. The whole Trump thing has really been getting to me big time. I'm very proud of my Mexican heritage. My bisabuela's family were migrant workers from outside of Sonora, Mexico. No, they weren't citizens. And no, Mr. Trump, they weren't murderers or worse.
Someone told me I shouldn't let it get to me or worse, not say anything, but I vowed to myself after a terrible experience I had back in college, that I would never not stand up whenever racism was happening.
And I do open my mouth and voice my concerns.
Actress America Ferrera nailed it:
Teaser: Gripping story that has readers re-enter the harsh post-apocalyptic world with a tough Native American heroine who's struggles to overcome her own pains, while guiding others to a place of refuge, make her a character all are sure to rally behind.
4. Right now reading Libba Bray's latest: LAIR OF DREAMS. Love!
Libba is one author I actually did go all fangirly over when she signed a book for me at ALA12:
Libba is such a good sport. She's all like mellow when I basically told her, "Omg, I love you!"
Really loving the sequel to DIVINERS. I'm not usually a fan of multiple points of view but Libba nails it. Loving this paranormal horror set in the roaring 20s!
5. At halfway mark of revision. This is hopefully the last round before I sent over to critique buddy. Then I plan to research agents and also outline my Nano project which is going to be a historical romance set in the 20s.
After I do the monthly Costco run, play to just sit down and finish reading LAIR OF DREAMS. Maybe I'll grab a nom-worthy Starbucks summer drink before the Fall ones come out next week!
Yes, I heard that the Pumpkin latte will be out! Totally grabbing one! Love the individual packs too.
