I just wanted to let you know we're making steady progress on the publication of this book. Right now we're looking at a release date of sometime within the next couple of months, possibly as soon as October. The cover has already been created, the editing is finished, and it has an ISBN number. Please keep checking in.

I moved to Morelia in 2008 and spent eight months working on a book about the artisans of Michoacan. The book, ''Slices of Life - The Artisans of Michoacan" will contain profiles of the artisans in this state west of Mexico City. I've now moved to Brownsville, Texas and have recently found a publisher, Otras Voces Publishing. My purpose is to capture the pulse of some of the artisan communities and introduce them to American readers by profiling the common thread that binds the artisans to the rest of the world through the universal themes of hardship and triumph and by describing the daily lives of the families who live and work here.
