The funny thing about having a book out there in the world is that I have no idea what it’s doing, who might be reading it, or appreciating it. So every once in a while, I get a surprise email — and it’s very nice. Here is TTWK’s latest honor:
Dear Author:

I am happy to inform you that you have been named one of LatinoStories.Com’s 2008 Top Ten “New” Latino Authors to Watch (and Read). The site selects authors based on a number of factors including feedback from readers and experts in Latino literature from across the country.

As you might observe from the list, this year’s selectees include poets, historians, short-story writers, journalists, authors of children’s books, and novelists, all of whom reflect the tremendous appeal and diversity of Latino writing. Past selectees include such notables as Angie Cruz, Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, Reyna Grande, Sonia Nazario, Sandra Rodriguez-Barron, Rene Colato Lainez, Francisco Aragon, and H.G. Carrillo.

We hope that in some way we can contribute to the success and sales of your works. Keep up the great work.

Jose B. Gonzalez, Ph.D.
Editor, LatinoStories.Com
