Random #1

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to announce that I am looking for someone who can proof my Spanish (Mexican) in my upcoming book, "Year Of The Cat".

I doubt there will be much to it, this is mostly just precaution. If interested, hit me up. I sure could use the help. It is always good to have someone double check your work. Just to be safe.

Also, I would like to give a couple shout outs to some really amazing and talented authors I have met or read on Goodreads.

Amy Lignor - I have read her book, "The Heart Of A Legend", and while a Western, it is a very good read. She also has written in other genere's and you can see all of her work right here.

Mitch Newman - He posts a lot of short stories on his Goodreads profile and has published a couple of books that I recommend highly. "School Colors" and "Sophie Paraskova"

Dick Peterson - His book "By The light: A Novel Of Serial Homicde" is a very good read.

Check these authors out and their work.

I also wanted to give a shout out to some very good blogs.

Love Hate Poetry - By my best friend, Hira. She has all kinds of things going on there. She has done a fantastic job with book reviews, author interviews, and so much more.

The Leather Express - By my good freind Sara. I like popping in on it from time to time. I think you all will enjoy it too. http://theleathersexpress.blogspot.com/

Shadow Kisses - By my friend Cassie. There are a lot of book reviews galore on her sight. She helps people find good books at great prices. Give her a peek. http://shadowkissedcassie.blogspot.com/

Okay, well, that's it for my Random Post number one. Remember, I am looking for anyone who can help me double check my Spanish in my upcoming book.

Thanks!

  6. Are you looking for authentic Mexican phrases or just regular Spanish corrections. Spanish is my first language and I don't mind helping; but I'm from Puerto Rico and certain names and phrases differ from culture to culture. For example: a cellphone (in Spanish) is 'celular' in Puerto Rico and I believe that it is called 'móvil' in México. Another thing; some Spanish words are universal regardless of where you are from, others are not - their meaning can be harmless in one country and offensive in another.

  7. There's not a lot of Spanish in the book. But Mexican Spanish is what I am going for. Authentic/slang, whatever works I guess. Would you still like to take a look at it?
