    BookRooster.com is an interesting service. You send them a MOBI (format for Kindle) file and they put a call on a community of over 3,000 readers to find ten reviewers to post a critique on amazon.com for $67 per book. Like many of these services, you get  an unbiased review...

As I navigate the world of publishing (self-publishing in my case), I keep learning more about it. However, the more I understand it, the less it makes sense to me. Let me explain myself. Say an established house published your book. You are a freshman author and lets say–for argument’s sake–...

There is a delicate balance between research and what ends up in the page. I want to be as realistic and  accurate as possible, without interrupting the plot or turning the book into some poor excuse for a manual. When I did the practical research for my novel, one of the things I was looking...

 This week, Time mentioned the Cuban revolution’s famed  Che Guevara as one of the twenty-five most influential political icons of the last one hundred years. Influential, yes. Universally revered? That’s another story. If you live in Miami, for example, the name of Che Guevara is anathema.  But if...

I’m happy to announce the publication of my new novel, my fourth, which is titled A Kiss For Señor Guevara. So much has been written about Che Guevara that the books and articles gathered together could be housed in an enormous library of their own. Sadly, very little of this work is fiction, Jay...

Surely Gabriel García Márquez is the author of some of the oddest books ever.   His Love In The Time of Cholera (my particular favorite)  features a man named Florentino Ariza who has been waiting for fifty-one years, nine months and four days for the love of his life, Fermina Daza, to get rid...
