Carolyn See, California Literary Legend, Dies at 82

You know that one teacher that changed your life, that one teacher that made you see a better version of yourself was actually possible and attainable?

That was Carolyn See for me. She was my teacher, my friend and mentor. I am a better writer and a better human being for having known her and learned from her and worked with her.

I just can’t say enough how much she changed my life for the better. She was the best!!! I’ll never forget her. I’ll never forget what I learned from her.

RIP Carolyn See, my friend and mentor. I love you, and I miss you!!!

To learn more about Carolyn See and her amazing body of work, here’s the announcement in the LA Times today.

2014 Readers’ Choice Award nominee at BigAl’s Books and Pals

Different by Frank Mundo is nominated for 2014 Readers' Choice Award at BigAl's Books and Pals

Different by Frank Mundo

I’m pleased to announce that my book, Different, is up for the 2014 Readers’ Choice Award for Fantasy books at BigAl’s Books and Pals.

Published on December 9th, 2013, Different tells the story of 12-year-old Gregory Gourde, a bright yet awkward kid who experiences certain physical changes one morning that even puberty can’t explain: his head has become a watermelon.

What follows is an audacious exploration of what it really means to be different in this dark yet humorous nod to Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” and Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”. Different also includes a dozen original woodcut-inspired black-and-white illustrations by Keith Draws.

Different was reviewed by BigAl’s Books and Pals on December 31, 2013, which you can read here.

If you’ve read and liked Different, please take a minute to vote for it in the Fantasy Category at BigAl’s using the Rafflecopter application/form. Just for voting you are entered to win prizes and free books. Check it out. And thank you for your support.

Different is now available in ebook and paperback versions on Amazon. Visit my Amazon author page for more info on all of my books.
