Lone Star Legend - A Book about a Latina Blogger

New Book Alert:

Digital Native, Gwendolyn Zepeda, (who launched gwenworld.com and worked gigs at other Web sites such as Television Without Pity during the 1990's) brings us Lone Star Legend, a story that any Latina writer and/or blogger will relate to completely:

When Sandy Saavedra lands her dream job with the popular website ¡Latino Now!, she can't wait to write hard-hitting pieces to combat all those stupid Latino stereotypes. While visions of Pulitzers dance in her head, her editor in chief is suddenly laid off, replaced by the infamous Dolores Villanueva O'Sullivan.

Dolores has one mission: make ¡Latino Now! an internet phenomenon, no matter how many pandering puff pieces she has to pack onto its pages. Sandy doesn't see how she can keep this job without losing her soul, especially when she's sent to Middle-of-Nowhere Texas to investigate the dumbest legend her people ever created, the Chupacabra.

Will she have to sell her soul to further her career? Have any of you ever been in a similar situation? Do tell...
