Happy (belated) book birthday, @authorjcervantes My babies are gonna love this!
Zane has always enjoyed exploring the dormant volcano near his home in New Mexico, even though hiking it is challenging. He'd much rather hang out there with his dog, Rosie, than go to middle school, where kids call him Sir Limps a Lot, McGimpster, or Uno—for his one good leg. What Zane doesn't know is that the volcano is a gateway to another world and he is at the center of a powerful prophecy. A new girl at school, Brooks, informs him that he's destined to release an evil god from the ancient Maya relic he is imprisoned in—unless she can find and remove it first. Together they return to the volcano, where all kinds of crazy happens. Brooks turns into a hawk, a demon attacks them in a cave, and Rosie gives her all while trying to protect Zane. When Zane decides to save his dog no matter the cost, he is thrust into an adventure full of surprising discoveries, dangerous secrets, and an all-out war between the gods, one of whom happens to be his father. To survive, Zane will have to become the Storm Runner. But how can he run when he can't even walk well without a cane?
Feisty heroes, tricky gods, murderous demons, and spirited giants are just some of the pleasures that await in this fresh and funny take on Maya mythology, as rich and delicious as a mug of authentic hot chocolate.

I think I'm gonna host a motivational Instagram challenge for October. Like a workout one but for writers. Any suggestions or needs?

An ode to September. To blue skies and new beginnings. To moody storms and fresh apples. To I DON'T CARE IF YOU CALL ME BASIC proclamations shouted at men. Because September reigns supreme. We bow before the Gregorian queen. 😘 at Texas

Mary Murphy's literal journey is in a homemade submarine across the Chesapeake Bay. Figurative journey, leaving her abusive family for a new, found one. #ThursdayAesthetic #novelaesthetics #ussmurphy
Oh, I only write with a .5 mm, extra-fine rollerball, honey.

Psst. I finished my sixth novel today. 🤞🤞🤞
Sex is great, but have you ever color-coded your plot?
Let's talk about love, babes. ❤ How much do you need it in your stories?
I need a lot. When I was a baby reader, I took out a lot of Danielle Steele books (and Clan of the Cave Bear) from the library 👀. Books were a safe spot for me to figure out love and lust, so I want to do the same for my readers.
When we lived in Colorado, the smell of roasting peppers in the air meant fall had arrived. Like the pumpkin spice latte of the wild west. In my weird west book, this is my character's favorite meal, and one of mine too: Chile Rellenos 😍😍😍 at Texas
