While most of us were out doing nothing particularly publish-worthy, Steven Roll of Travelojos (and who I got to meet in person in NY at TBEX last year) has been putting together some of his favorite Latin-America based and centered writers to create Celebrating Latin America At Ground Level, the Latin America e-book.
Food, life, love, travel ingenuity etc. It's all compiled and edited and FREE. Download it here.
Oh, and hey, I have a piece in there. Which might be notable on its own, except that there's this whole long list of everyone else who has a piece in there, too. Hats off people. I'm delighted to be in such good company. And hats off, Steven, for dogged love of good writing and Latin America.
And speaking of dogged, Margaret from cachandochile shared her link list of all the book's contributors. And so I'll share it with you. There are a bunch of people I work with (at MatadorNetwork) am friends with (in real life and on the internet) and people I hope I'll meet one day. You too? Click and read.
