Wonder what went into building the vivid world of turbulent 1990s Colombia in Juventud? Some of the primary footage I referenced while drafting the book also ended up in the official book trailer, released last month by the good folks at The Rumpus. You can read my notes and view the trailer today over at Necessary FictionJuventud Research Notes & Book Trailer

Pre-pub buzz for JUVENTUD at Library Journal, New City Lit, and Seven Days!

As the days cool off slightly in central Florida and I prepare to leave on book tour, it’s been heartening to catch some early praise for Juventud. I’ve been so consumed with final edits and arranging author events that I missed a very nice mention of the novel at Library Journal‘s “Books that Buzzed at BookExpo America,” from earlier this summer (you can find the following links on my official website: News and Reviews for JUVENTUD). The novel also received praise from critic Margot Harrison at the Vermont independent paper, Seven Days, from author Christine Sneed in her Fall Preview 2015 roundup for New City Lit, and Train Shots fan and book reviewer, Sarah Morgan, at the Internet Review of Books.
