So honored to have published my first mini-fiction story, “Los Chorritos de Valeria” which was included in Peinate- Hair Battles Between Latina Mothers & Daughters. The book includes stories, poems and essays about fights, acceptance, insecurities, & identity, and how it shapes those crucial familial bonds. The inspiration for my short fiction piece is my strong Latina mother and growing up in the nitty-gritty upper west side at five years of age who taught me to love myself and my curls…to be me…skinny, big eyes, big hair…beautiful me. I hope you get a chance to purchase the book that was sold out at the book launch this week and to read all of the other inspirational works written by fabulous, strong, powerful writers who also contributed to the book. Special shout out to @thejadednyer, who without her hard work this book would never have been possible. #writerscommunity #peinatebook #laplumaylatinta #glaxarts #booklaunch #fiction #anthologies #strength #courage #curls #curlyhairrocks #writer #writerslife #inspiration #strength #riseabove #believeinyourself #beyou #innerpeace #motheranddaughterbond #instawriter #reflections.

So the day is finally here for the book release of “Peínate: Hair Battles Between Latina Mothers & Daughters”. Gratefully, my essay is being featured in this anthology, and though I’ve known about this for months, I couldn’t find it in me to embrace this accomplishment and feel deserving of it. In fact, I’m having a hard time writing this now, to be honest. These past few months I’ve spiraled into one of my deepest bouts of depression and I will NOT continue to allow this disease to rob me of everything I’ve ever wanted - including living the writer’s life, becoming more present to myself and to my loved ones, accomplishing the goals I’ve been dreaming about for as long as I can remember, and most importantly, what I feel I was put on this Earth to do... raise #mentalhealthawareness. Just to name a few of the many, many things depression has robbed me from. Unfortunately.
As I’ve mentioned, I’ve known about this book launch for months and though I just reached out 2 days ago to a handful of my friends and family, here is the information of the event happening tonight @wordupbooks presented by @laplumaylatinta ❤️ Congratulations to everyone involved! I’m beginning to feel super excited about tonight and about the book 🙏🏽
Cheers to an amazing evening 🍾🥂
