Remarkable Read As a writer, author and reviewer, I certainly can respect this collection of stories. It's not the typical -author-interview or tell-me-your-writing-secrets kind of story collection. It's a wonderful collection of diverse stories from authors who write solely in Spanish and others who write in Spanish and English. This book made me want to read some of the work of the presented authors. "You’ve come a long way, baby!" And I certainly agree.

This is something completely different for me. A book revolving around forty authors and their muses. Because it focuses on Latina authors I have to state looking in the appendix at the back I didn't notice any familiar names. Mainly due to it not being my favoured genre and because I am in the UK. Each author has a separate chapter which reads much like a resume. All personal details plus where to locate them on the internet and basically a Q&A section. There is a photograph so you get some sense of who you are reading about. The lengths they go to in order to get themselves published is fairly interesting and inspiring and I would say it's more of a book to dip in and out of rather than reading in it's entirety otherwise one tends to merge into another which is slightly unfair on the individual. And it is quite long. If you have a preferred author or interest in this subject I'm sure it has a multitude of information. The cover is truly stunning with such a wide array of colours that alone makes one want to pick the book up. Thanks to Pump Up Your Book for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion.
