Jaime Manrique's New Book!


First off. Isn't this woman's hairdo wildly gorgeous? Next prom, this is going to be my do.

Getting this book today. So far the book has received amazing reviews!

El Paso Times Review
Harper Collins

Even the Amazon folks, which are quick to drag one's project through the dirt, have given it 5 stars.

Heres a tiny synopsis of the book: Set against the majestic geography of the Andes, this riveting novel tells the story of Manuela Sáenz, who won her place in history as the great love of the South American liberator Simón Bolívar.

I predict this will be on the NY Times Bestseller List before long...

I shouldn't publicly remember this, but I was escorted home from Columbia's prom, barefoot, and yelling.

BTW: My little brother adores the popcorn shrimp they fry up at The Lob.

I wouldn't say you were yelling so much as angrily resigned to the fact that the night would go on without you and the sidewalk wouldn't sit still.

"The Lob"?

Oh, man. I don't want to go anymore.
