In late 2013, "Walking for Peace, an inner journey" WON the Action/Adventure category at the Latino Books into Movies Awards, a prestigious and competitive award for books by Latino authors that have all the ingredients to become successful movies.
Copies are today in the hands of producers and movie executives in Hollywood.
We are VERY excited by the possibilities these awards offer, especially as movie-goers continue to demand stories that inspire and uplift.
This is the PDF with the announcements.
Our thanks to the judges (mostly movie industry executives) and to the Latino Literacy Now initiative, founded by actor Edward James Olmos, working diligently to promote Latin culture and authors.
