Cinco de Mayo Giveaway on Sunday, May 5th.

ImageThose of you who have read “The Moon Cried Blood” already know that it’s central protagonist, 13 year old Tisha is a young lady of African American and Mexican American heritage living in Los Angeles in the mid 1970s. In this gritty work of dark fantasy and urban fiction, the teen comes to know that she is one of a long line of witches called “Luna” whose powers are connected to the cycles of the moon.

Here is the official description of the book:

It is said that the Wolf may howl at the Moon, but Imagethe Moon never howls at the Wolf. In the gritty urban streets of Los Angeles in 1975, Leticia Gordon is forced to come to terms with many things: the tragic death of her stepmother and baby sister in a car accident, fear she’ll wind up in foster care, and the sudden revelation she belongs to a long line of powerful witches known as Luna – who exhibit first power upon reaching womanhood. Running from foes natural and supernatural, will her newfound powers be the turning point that elevates her position of honor, or will it destroy her like the dark forces that consumed her father? In a world turned upside down where time itself seems in flux, in whom can she trust?

Here is an Amazon customer review of the work:

5.0 out of 5 stars Very powerful imagery September 29, 2012
Cycles of the moon, Generations of women, a young woman unaware of her incredible gift. A delicate weaving of history, character development and esoteric overlay that makes for an interesting saga. I read it twice, I missed a lot in the first round with all the symbolism. A lot of work went into the background and technical aspects of the writing itself and it shows.”

What is Cinco de Mayo?

ImageCinco de Mayo is Spanish for “the fifth of May” and it began as a celebration of the Mexican Army’s victory over France in the  Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It has since gone on to become a celebration of Mexican American culture in the United States. It is traditionally celebrated here with outdoor activities such as picnics, parades, and festivals. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, Cinco de Mayo, although a spring festival, is generally the kick-off of the busy summer season of outdoor activities such as street fairs, and frequently coincides with the start of warmer weather as spring comes to a close and we approach summer.
Some of the Cinco de Mayo celebrations taking place here in Oakland include a Cinco de Mayo Day party at the Ferry Plaza, and a return of the traditional Fruitvale Cinco de Mayo.
