Does anyone know the name of the star in the original movie: “The Blog.” Post it on the contact page.

BronzeWord’s Blog is a new entry in the field of Latino news. The blog offers writers information on publishing news especially with an impact on Latinos/as, Latino/a book awards, Latino/a author’s new releases, agents and editors views and needs, writing techniques, contests guidelines and conferences information and marketing and promotional strategies. BronzeWord is passionate about helping Latinos/as maximize their writing potential. Articles will be provided to relevant writing news and to inspire and assist you to achieve your writing goals this year.

BronzeWord’s Blog invites guest bloggers to submit articles in categories pertinent to the publishing industry. Guest bloggers are welcome to announce new services or opportunities for Latino/a authors and writers.

BronzeWord’s Blog invites new writers to ask questions, seek guidance, and announce their victories, no matter how small or how big. Young Adults are invited to make comments, ask questions and be published. They can post their poetry and short stories. Also names of magazines and online publishers are provided where Young Adults can post their writing, so they can see themselves in print. I want young people to see they have a voice and the ability to broadcast that voice to the world before somebody puts them into vocational training.

BronzeWord’s Blog invites published authors to talk about their experience, their marketing plans, ask for helping in getting word out on their books, and anything that would make their book life a more prosperous venue..

BronzeWord’s Blog main goal is to provide the one place any Latino/a can come to for full coverage of the Latino/a book world and publishing industry. Soon free books will be given away.

Let me share some news!

DARK LULLABY is now available from Fantastic Literature Ltd, UK’s largest and best online purveyor of out of print books, rare books and used books in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime, thrillers, ghost stories, weird tales and macabre fiction both in paperback, hardcover and magazine format.

At a trendy Turkish tavern one Friday night, astrophysicist Gabriel Diaz meets a mysterious young woman. Captivated by her beauty as well as her views on good and evil, he spends the next several days with her. Soon, however, he begins to notice a strangeness in her–her skin’s abnormally high temperature, her obsession with milk products, her child-like and bizarre behavior as she seems to take pleasure in toying with his conscience.
The young woman, Kamilah, invites him to Rize, Turkey, where she claims her family owns a cottage in the woods. In spite of his heavy workload and the disturbing visions and nightmares about his sister’s baby that is due to be born soon, Gabriel agrees to go with her.
But nothing, not even the stunning splendor of the Black Sea, can disguise the horror of her nature. In a place where death dwells and illusion and reality seem as one, Gabriel must now come to terms with his own demons in order to save his sister’s unborn child, and ultimately, his own soul…
