Been a while...

...since I've blogged anything literary, and so here's something: my bilingual collection of Mexican American folktales has been published recently by Piñata Books; it's called Dancing with the Devil and Other Tales from Beyond, pictured here and to the left:
Included in the book are tales about la llorona (the wailing woman), la mano pachona (the severed hand), and the devil as a handsome teen at a middle school dance.
 
Also, there aren't specifics yet but Piñata Books has also bought a picture book manuscript and it's due out possibly as early as spring of 2013; it's a bilingual counting book that also doubles as a story about Mexican American birthday parties.
