I am pleased and proud to announce that my book Roachkiller and Other Stories won the first prize for the International Latino Book Award for Best eBook – Fiction. The awards are associated with Latino Literacy Now, which is headed by actor Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica, Stand and Deliver, Filly Brown). This, I hope, means that Commander Adama has actually read my work! The organization is dedicated to promoting literacy in the Latino community. This is the first year the ILB is giving an award for Best eBook – Fiction. I could not attend the ceremony, so now I’m waiting for Mr. Olmos to leave me an origami award on the floor of my hallway.
