Hello Gemmies! I have new bookish news to share with you today. Algonquin announced that they have bought world rights to a YA horror anthology co-edited by Amparo Ortiz and Yamile Saied Mendez! Our Shadows Have Claws will contain short stories featuring mythical monsters from Latinx folklore. We'll see everything from El Chupacabra, Vampires, werewolves, La Llorona, and more creepy critters. Amparo Ortiz brought us the fantasy thriller Blazewrath Games, and Yamile Mendez wrote the YA contemporary gem...Furia.
In addition to Amparo Ortiz and Yamile Mendez other contributors to this collection include Ann Davila Cardinal, Claribel Ortega, Lilliam Rivera, Maritza Moulite, Maika Moulite, Mia Garcia, David Bowles, Courtney Alameda, and more! I adore so many of these authors and cannot wait to read this collaboration of Latinx goodness!
Publication is set for a 2023 release. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
