More about the book: Latina Authors and Their Muses is an award-winning finalist in the category of Best Latino Focused Nonfiction Book in the 2016 International Latino Book Award.

“…If you don’t purchase another writing reference book this year, at least get this one. You won’t be disappointed. I will go so far as to say it’s almost a must because it’s that rich with good information.” ~ Corina Martinez Chaudhry, for The Latino Author

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.”
