Great News! Chica Lit Fiesta

I have some very exciting news! I am going to be a part of a panel discussion entitled "The Myth of Writer's Block - How to Just Do It Against All Odds." The exciting part is where this panel will take place. It will be at the Chica Lit Club Fiesta in New Mexico, hosted by the Chica Lit author, Alisa Valdes Rodriguez. As in the author of the famous "The Dirty Girls Social Club" and one of Time Magazine's 25 Most Influential Hispanics.

As some of you may remember, I was the moderator for Alisa Valdes when she was in Houston for the Latino Book and Family Festival. I had a really great time escorting her to her readings for three days and having dinner with her on her last night here. I’ve kept up with her since then and I was very honored when she asked me if I would be interested in being a part of this panel. She says it’s because I work full time, I’m a mom and a wife, and yet I still make the time to write. Well, specifically that I made the time to write a novel.

So I’m really excited and I can not wait to see how it all turns out. The Fiesta is August 17-20 in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. Check back to Alisa’s site for details if you are interested in attending.
