2015: A Year in Bruja Magic

2015 was a wonderful year in mi mundo. My first short story collection was published and released via Ladybox Books. I read all over the U.S. (Los Angeles, San Antonio, New York City, Austin, Minneapolis) and I met so many incredible hardworking activists, artists and folx in the Lit Community.

I met a queen (Sandra Cisneros) this year. I was really sick and I could barely speak. I cried and I don’t know if she will ever know how much her work means to so many xicanas. 

Here is the year in review:

Feb. 2015: My short story, Ear to the Ground, was published in Vol. 1 Brooklyn. (This story is also in The Pulse Between Dimensions and The Desert)

May 2015: One of my favorite spaces for the Lit Community is Entropy, one of my Non-fiction pieces, Los Pajaritos Cantan, was featured as part of The Birds series.

July 2015: I wrote a #finalpoem for Enclave.

Nov. 2015: My short story, La Bruja y La Frontera was published in THE FEM. The Fem Lit Magazine is one of my favorite sites to read work from marginalized voices. They also feature and extensive list of other inclusive and feminist leaning websites.

Dec. 2015: You can Listen to one of my readings on JEFF ATTACKS! live from Bizarro Con.

The Pulse Between Dimensions and The Desert was given some love at the end of the year. PULSE was on the BEST OF 2015 over at Entropy, Top Reads on Static Broadcasts and Vol. 1 Brooklyn.  I am honored and so thankful to anyone who has taken the time to read my stories. 2015 has been very good to me. I am ready to learn more, write more, read more and meet more badass people out there.
