Tired Sunday: News, New Books in Aug.

Well, I've decided to skip the Sunday Press Spotlight for today. I returned From the Great American Duck Race in Deming, NM

While I work on the remaining books for Aug, check out Rigoberto Gonzalez negative review of The Madonnas of Echo Park by Brando Skyhorse: "This mismatch between


character and diction disrupts the reading experience repeatedly," says Gonzalez. READ MORE.

Also, check out Ramon Renteria's article on Monica Perales and her news book on Smeltertown: "Smeltertown's Story: Historian chronicles birth, growth and death of her family's neighborhood"
Check out an earlier piece we did on this book: Smeltertown.
