I had a nice surprise yesterday afternoon. My latest book "Esperanza Means Hope" is finally available for purchase. The wait is always too long—but the payoff is sweeter beyond all imaginable proportion. I've already shown some of my artwork from the book, but there's nothing like seeing it in published form. Here's the jacket and publishers blurb.
ESPERANZA IS HERE! The historical fiction book, Esperanza Means Hope (written by Gwen Harvey, illustrated by Guy Porfirio, and published by AHS) has arrived. Join us at the Arizona History Museum in Tucson for a book signing on Friday, December 3, 2010 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Meet the author and the illustrator in person. Books will be for sale for $17.95--all proceeds support AHS education programs.
I just got word—a little wrinkle has appeared in my book signing scheduled for tomorrow. Delivery of the books is delayed, therefore, my book signing will have to be rescheduled. Gwen Harvey, however, will still be presenting at the Arizona History Museum, well worth seeing. Gwen did an amazing job with the research and writing of this story. More later.
