Fun Excerpts, Interviews, & Articles on my book “Voting Booth After Dark”

Over the past few months, I’ve participated in some fun interviews, written articles on and published excerpts from my debut book The Voting Booth After Dark: Despicable, Embarrassing, Repulsive.  It’s a 92-page collection of short stories and poems interwoven into a gripping narrative that follows a group of gay & lesbian Latino club kids during the course of the 2008 presidential elections.  As they plunge deep into the agonizing lows of anxiety and addiction, we see how they affect and are affected by the national politics happening around them.  It’s available for purchase as an e-book & paperback at numerous well-known and independent sites such as Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com, and GiovannisRoom.com.

What’s the story behind your middle name “Libertad”?

You’re sort-of broke right? Which means you made this book on very little $$$. Who are some of the core people that helped you bring The Voting Booth After Dark: Despicable, Embarrassing Repulsive to life?
