The Pen And Ink Blog Travels The Amazon

"And instantly the figures were made of wood. They looked like men, talked like men, and populated the surface of the earth. They existed and multiplied; they had daughters, they had sons, these wooden figures; but they did not have souls, nor minds, they did not remember their Creator, their Maker; they walked on all fours, aimlessly. They no longer remembered the Heart of Heaven..."

- The Popul Vuh/Creation of the Quiche Maya

The Pen And Ink Blog brings you the cutting edge in content delivery. We present our first E-Book via Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. The Wooden Men is a chilling tale of a boy lost in the woods, written by that Mexican Muse, that Homeboy of Hyperbole, that Vato of Verb, that Latino of Letters, get the idea.

It's only 99 cents.
"The deuce you say!"
It's true! It's true!
"99 cents is almost a dollar!"
But it's not.
"Doesn't self published mean it's crap?"
Come on, give the kid a break. 
He doesn't get out much.

  1. That quote is beautiful. Don't worry. I have me a Kindle, and I will download this today. What?! You haven't already? Sorry, it was a crazy weekend, but I'm excited to read this book, Lupe.

  2. Lori,
    Thanks Lori. You show good taste. Now I can buy that chewing gum I always wanted.

  3. How much? How much?

    Is there a price on happiness?
    Is there a price on warm-fuzzes?
    Is there a price on that time when I saw that girl but she didn't notice me even though I shot off a red flare to mark my location in the snow drift?

    It's 99 cent.

  4. I think this is cool, and I can't wait to see how it pans out!

  5. Okay, I bought it, P & I Gang. Looking forward to reading it!

    But wait...have you bought Janet Wong and Sylvia Vardell's children's poetry anthology of 30 poets (disclaimer, me included)--also only 99 cents?

    try'll like it.

  6. We're not saying our travel down Amazon will yield the El Dorado of literacy. (It will)
    We're not saying this is the greatest innovation since the cup-holder. (It is.)
    We're just saying, stay tuned.

  7. Great story! I downloaded it and read it immediately. It's a very heartfelt reworking of what, I assume, is an old folktale. Lovely!
