Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure and Latin Flavors Blogfest

What is your favorite Latin-flavor recipe?

One thing I remember very fondly from living in Albuquerque, NM for four years is getting authentic Buñuelos at the state fair every year. We’d track down the Hispanic food center and chow down on at least two delicious treats. And they were big, too. They are similar to sopaipillas but flat and round.

Here is a recipe for Buñuelos.

Now, get excited – today is release day for Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure by Sherry Ellis!

An Ancient Mayan civilization!

But someone is stealing them. And an encounter with the Tate Duende awakens magic within Bubba. Throw in the mysterious Alux and a new discovery and things get sticky.

The Insecure Writer's Support Group and Sherry Ellis & Dave Cole Tours

It’s time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, founded by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

Sept. 2 question – If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why?

I write so many genres. Who would I pick?

I’m going for Napoleon Hill, author of Think Big and Grow Rich. A lot of my success principals in Overcoming Obstacles with SPUNK! are based on what I learned from reading his books and listening to his tapes. He would’ve been an amazing person to learn from.

Today is the last day to enter the IWSG anthology contest. Remember, genre is science fiction, theme is dark matter, and it must abide by the guidelines set up by Dancing Lemur Press.

Gabe’s Guardian Angel

On sale Aug. 31 – Sept. 4 for $2.99 Amazon eBook
Pick it up at Amazon US, UK, CA, and AU
