Finally! The Heartbreak Pill Goes to Mexico


Today's post is a bit of a departure, but my first novel launches in Mexico and Latin America tomorrow and I couldn't very well keep you all out of the loop. Here's the genius cover, Ediciones B, my publishing house created for it. I love how they kept the feel of the original but, as Christina Aguilera would say on The Voice, "made it "their own."

***Special thanks to my Foreign Rights agent, Andrea Montejo, of Indent Literary Agency in New York for making this happen.

Over the years, I've received so many emails from Mexico readers who couldn't find it, that I couldn't be more excited about this, and about going to present it later this month at an event with my friend, Gloria Calzada, now of Netas Divinas fame, presenter, movie producer, and owner of the coolest celebrity website ever.


Now, take a look at how the covers compare, and I'll tell you a secret. At first, I didn't like any of them (maybe it's a stupid author thing.) Now I don't know which one I love more.

All this emotion as I wait for an answer and, hopefully, a "to publish by" date for my second novel The Clairvoyant of 8th Street (La clarividente de la calle ocho) from my US publishing house, Simon & Schuster's Atria Books. Help me by crossing your fingers too.

  1. ¡Mi amiga! This is such exciting news!!! I know how hard you have worked to follow your passion and how important The Pill is to you. As yip our number one fan, I've decided not to wish you luck. First, cause clearly, you don't need it. Secondly, cause luck is for dummies ;-) Instead, I've decided to wish you clarity. Clarity so you can see clearly everything that's happening in your career as the amazing writer that you are. '¡Orgullo boricua!' I've also decided to wish you patience. Patience so you can enjoy and appreciate every minute of this so well deserved success. Since I'm superstitious (can't wait to read La clarividente!!!), I will add one more wish to my list to make it three. Just cause someone told me odd numbers work best. Lastly, I wish you faith. Faith to believe this is ALL happening. You inspire me. Love from NYC, my friend. My beautiful writer friend...
