Mystery Series Set in Acapulco Launched with Release of Cliff Diver

Sterling, Va (PRWEB) March 07, 2013

Carmen Amato, an established author who divides her time between the United States and Central America, just released the first novel in the new Emilia Cruz mystery series set in Acapulco, Mexico, the city recently reported to be the second most violent in the world. Featuring the first and only female police detective in Acapulco, Cliff Diver is available at amazon.com in print and ebook formats to take both Detective Emilia Cruz and readers of this edgy police procedural into the heart of Mexicos drug war.

Youre a good cop, Cruz. The kind that die young. The words of Acapulcos fictional police chief exemplify the tone of the new Emilia Cruz series. In Cliff Diver, Emilia investigates the murder of her corrupt police lieutenant and becomes the target of a high-stakes political power play as well as resentment from male detectives. Missing police files, links to a past kidnapping, and connections to a gang working for a drug cartel point the investigation in multiple directions. Under pressure from politicians, other cops, and the powerful police union, Emilia feels like Acapulcos famous cliff divers, plunging into suspense and praying not to crash on the rocks below.

As noted on Amazon, Amato has taken the classic mystery and given it a contemporary Mexican twist. The result is an adrenaline-charged novel with the emotional vibe of those who live on the edge. In addition, readers are already singing the praises of the novel and its strong central Latina character. On her website, Amato writes that she drew on contemporary Latina figures to shape the Emilia Cruz character, including Olympic boxer Marlen Esparza and Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

People who would like to read an excerpt from this riveting new mystery novel before purchasing Cliff Diver can find the first chapter on Amatos website. In the chapter, Emilia has a strange encounter with her lieutenant and meets hotel manager Kurt Rucker for the first time; over the course of the book her relationship with Rucker will both complicate Emilias investigation and help her to survive it.

In a guest article for omnimysterynews.com, Amato discussed her 2012 political thriller The Hidden Light of Mexico City and how a chance encounter with a junkie in Mexico City became the spark that led to the Emilia Cruz series. Concerned about the toll that drug violence is taking on Mexico, Amato hopes that a mystery series can raise awareness of what’s going on in Mexico, with plot elements straight out of the headlines, an authentic dive into one of the most beautiful settings on earth, and a little salsa fresca from my own years living in Mexico and Central America.

“The Elijah Door: A Passover Tale” Is Newest Release by Award-Winning Children’s Book Author Linda Leopold Strauss

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 13, 2012

Award-winning children’s author Linda Leopold Strausss latest picture book, “The Elijah Door: A Passover Tale” (Holiday House, 2012), has been released just in time for Passover. An original folk tale set in a village that was sometimes Poland and sometimes Russia, the book is illustrated with stunning hand-painted woodcuts by Alexi Natchev. Suggested for ages 4 8-years old, it is the story of young David Lippa and Rachel Galinsky, whose families are feuding, but who, with the help of their neighbors and the town rabbi, devise a scheme to bring their two families together to once again celebrate Passover at the same festive table. Strausss ninth book for children, “The Elijah Door: A Passover Tale” lists for $ 16.95 and is available at Amazon.com and independent and major bookstore retailers across the country.

Publishers Weekly wrote, The Galinskys and the Lippas have been neighbors and friends for generations, but a small bartering disagreement has sundered that friendship. Young Rachel Galinsky and David Lippa have always known they would marry, but now that fairy tale ending seems impossible. As Passover approaches and the families refuse to share the holiday meals as they always have, the two children realize that the time has come to enlist the aid of their wise rabbi who quickly implements a plan to help bring peace to the Seder table. Natchevs artworkcreated by carving an image into wood and linoleum plates, inking the image with a roller, printing it by hand, then hand-coloring with watercolorsdoes a magnificent job of bringing this Jewish Romeo and Juliet fable to life.

A graduate of Vassar College and Columbia University, Strauss began her writing career more than thirty years ago. She has previously published eight books for children and stories in numerous childrens magazines (including Cricket, Spider, Ladybug, Hopscotch, Astrapi and School). Books include “Preschool Day Hooray!” (Scholastic/Cartwheel, 2010), “Drop Everything and Write!” (E&E Publishing, 2010), “The Princess Gown” (Houghton-Mifflin, 2008), and “A Fairy Called Hilary” (Holiday House, 1999). Her work includes fiction and non-fiction for a wide variety of ages and has been translated into French, Italian, Swedish and German. The mother of two grown daughters and grandmother of two, the author lives with her husband, William Strauss, in Wyoming, Ohio. She regularly visits schools and libraries to engage with young readers and has taught writing to students from kindergarten-age to adults. More information about her work is available at http://www.lindaleopoldstrauss.com.

Illustrator Alexi Natchev was born and educated in Sofia, Bulgaria. A graduate of the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, his work has been shown in many international exhibits and biennials, and he has received a number of national and international awards. Since moving to the US in 1990, he has published more than fifteen childrens books with major American publishers. Currently he is the Illustration Area Coordinator at Delaware College of Art and Design in Wilmington.

More reviews of “The Elijah Door: A Passover Tale”

a lovely story about maintaining peace and the importance of community for young people.

Childrens author Connie Nordhielm Wooldridge wrote, Long ago, in a small village that was sometimes Poland and sometimes Russia, the Lippas and the Galinskys lived in side-by-side houses. They were fast friends whose children, Rachel Galinsky and David Lippa, would someday marry. Until the incident involving the two fat geese and the six laying hens (it’s complicated…don’t ask!) turned them into arch enemies. Enter the rabbi who, along with Rachel and David and the entire village, hatches a plot that brings the two families back together over a very long Seder table. Seder supper details (tracking down crumbs and, of course the Elijah door) are neatly tucked into this warm, rollicking plot illustrated with folksy prints hand carved on wood and linoleum blocks. Best of all, the book has arrived just in time for Passover!

Such a beautiful book. It stirred so many memories of mineabout the long table at my grandparents home. A table that stretched from the living room, through the dining room, through the pantry, up to the kitchen door, and seated God knows how many Rozens. And of course there was always room for more. ????????

New Non-Fiction Release Delves into History of the Commercial Food Canning and Preserving Industry in Northeastern Colorado

Longmont, Colo. (PRWEB) February 21, 2012

This new non-fiction work published by Dog Ear Publishing is an in-depth study of the industrial boom centering on the food canning and preserving industries in dozens of communities in northeastern Colorado from the end of the 19th century to the industrys downfall in the mid-to-late 20th century.

The history of food preservation goes back as far as human memory; every great civilization had at least one method of keeping food from spoiling, but modern canning practices came into being at the very end of the 18th century in France, where the government offered financial compensation to anyone who could come up with a method of preserving food for the military. Chef Nicolas Appert created the method that is still in use today, the method that played a vital role in the industrialization of northeastern Colorado in the 19th and 20th centuries. To the rural residents of Colorado, the canning industry that sprang to life there were a vital source of income, creating a nutritious and delicious source of food for the region. These canneries loomed large until their eventual defeat at the hands of the giants such as Libby, McNeill and Libby, as well as Stokely-Van Camp, companies that continue to serve the entire nations canned food needs. But what of the men and women who helped to foster the boom of industry in Colorado?

John C. Kuners need to support his family after their move to Denver formed the basis of one of the great canning companies in Colorado; pickling vegetables in his home kitchen, Kuner went door-to-door selling his goods to Denver households seeking some variance in their diet during the winter months. Kuner and his brother, Max, eventually formed Kuner Pickle Company, with Max gradually buying his brothers share of the business and building the business into one of Denvers most venerable institutions. John Howard Empson came to Colorado at his doctors urging, seeking a cure for his infected lungs. Empson, a successful businessman in Cincinnati,was inclined to ignore his doctors advice, but he was eventually swayed by his 7-year-old daughter, Alida. Son of a grocer, Empson soon realized the value of canned food, and decided to take advantage of the city dwellers inability to grow their own food. Kuner and Empsons businesses boomed, and both companies spread their canning factories throughout rural Colorado.

Colorados Small Town Industrial Revolution is a fascinating glimpse into a long-ago time, full of vivid portraits of the men and women who helped to build Colorado into the state it is today. Professor emeritus Lee Scamehorn has brought history to life in this, his fifth book. Scamehorn, a graduate of Western Michigan University and the University of Illinois, taught history at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
