Launch Day

At last, my novel Barrio Imbroglio is available for purchase on Amazon. I have spent the morning spreading the news on Facebook, Twitter, and various social media outlets of dubious reputation.

So why did I pick this date to officially announce the book?

Was it some ingenious marketing plan based upon complex algorithms and in-depth psychological insights of modern readers?

Was it some planetary alignment or spiritual convergence that portends good karma for my book?

Was it because today is highly symbolic date that signifies a deeply personal milestone?


Actually, it was because yesterday was 4/20, and I didn’t want my book’s release to be overwhelmed by ten thousand pot jokes. So I waited a day.

Anyway, you can snag a copy of the book by clicking here. Thanks.



So here’s the plan. On this blog, I will write about writing. I will write about reading. I will write about neither of those things and write about whatever societal issue, scientific breakthrough, or pop culture travesty I believe is worth discussing

I will (in a truly stupendous feat of recycling) post my articles from the Huffington Post and my website, The Hispanic Fanatic.

I will respond to your comments and questions. I will thank you in advance for supplying those comments and questions in the first place.

I will possibly offend you. I may even alarm you.

I will do all these things while endeavoring to be as entertaining and insightful as possible.

Wish me good luck.
