29

Caramel Flava is currently #29 on the New York Times Paperback Bestseller list.

Holy Shit!

I don't feel that I've earned bragging rights, because I know very well that Zane is selling this book, not me. But it still feels most excellent to be a small part of it.

I got some contributor copies, and I've read through the entire book now. I'll post more thoughts on it at a later date, but for now, suffice to say that it's sizzling hot and Zane did a great job of compiling eclectic works that do justice to the Latin theme.

My story in the book is a Cuban-spiced sizzler titled "Found in Translation" and it's been singled out in a couple of reviews -- favorably. (!) That's some good juju, alright. But if you're looking for something steamy to prolong the summer heat or warm up the quickly approaching autumn nights, you can't go wrong with this book.

Congrats to Zane, and to all the other writers included in this anthology. I'm so proud and honored to be included with you talented, daring, and brave writers.



As a little mini-celebration, I'll be happy to send out a signed copy of the book (along with a little special bonus) to three people. All you have to do is drop me an e-mail (susandiplacido AT aol.com) saying you'd like a copy of it, and be willing to tell me your address, and I'll send it to you. First three e-mails get a copy. And please note, it's only signed by me, not by Zane.
