THE INSIDER’S GUIDE TO THE BEST OF MEXICO was released this week on Amazon, Nook, Scribid, Playster, Inkterra, and Kobo. It is already #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases list for the Mexico Travel category!
It’s a unique collection of stories, essays, and photographs that you won’t find anywhere else. I was delighted to edit the collection.
The book started life last year as a project of the Mexico Writers group on Facebook. Contributors could print and use it as they liked–hand out in shops, giveaways to readers, etc.
Contributions grew and so did our audience. It was time to publish!
In THE INSIDE’S GUIDE TO THE BEST OF MEXICO, 42 writers, artists, educators, travelers, business owners and others share their experiences. Art, Beaches, History, Literature, Special Places and Experiences are some of the categories. Most of those who contributed stories are expatriates who have found opportunity and inspiration in Mexico.
These insider stories are neither formal guidebook, social commentary, nor a substitute for unbiased news. They are an effort to share a landscape and lifestyle that have found a place in the hearts of so many.
My fiction often dwells in the dark places of Mexico. But like anywhere else, Mexico has both both sunlight and shadow. THE INSIDER’S GUIDE TO THE BEST OF MEXICO celebrates the light. Whether you are contemplating your next vacation, retirement, work-related move to Mexico, or are simply an armchair traveler, please enjoy these unique insider stories.
