"Finding Innisburg" is a mystery/thriller novel about a young man and his quest to find out why there is a classic American town in the middle of the Guatemalan jungle. I'll be interested to know if it's gripping enough or if it rambles too much.
If you would be interested in reading either of these and providing me with feedback regarding them, please shoot me an email at locachica1357ATyahoo.com. Just let me know which one or both you are interested in and I'll be in touch.
And of course, throughout 2011 I'll be updating you all on my progress as I try to make something of myself so STAY TUNED.
