I’ve loved Alisa Valdes since The Dirty Girls Social Club and respect her as a writer and Latina. She is open and speaks about her struggles in the industry. How others have doubted and questioned her. How she trusted a fellow Latina to bring her project to life only to be betrayed. And then we took a photo and said she read my blog.
“You’re a great writer,” said Alisa.
I beamed and am now setting a deadline to finish Love Trips (the book). Watch out for it on December 15, 2011!
And I leave you on that high.
