Isabel Cruz: Isabel's Cantina booksigning at Warwick's 10/17

Isabel Cruz hosted a signing for her new book ISABEL'S CANTINA (Clarkson Potter, 2007) at her Coffee Cup restaurant in La Jolla, California. The restaurant, victim to a fire last year, is slated to be reopened at the start of November, so book lovers got a sneak peak of the redesign of their favorite neighborhood joint. The event was done in partnership with Warwicks books of La Jolla. (

ISABEL'S CANTINA is a delightful mix of Latin-Asian fusion, the same signature style that has made her series of restaurants a huge success. Attendees last Wednesday night munched on everything from quinoa salads to bitesize brownies of chocolate flourless cake, while sipping on her famous sangria.

The good news is that the recipes are as easy to make as they are delicious to eat!

a SLICE of the writer's life

Someone is looking out for you!

Two editors in New York decided that it was just too tough for writers to get a break in the industry. And you thought no one cared! So they started Slice Magazine, which not only creates a community for published and unpublished writers to come together, but it offers a new forum where *you*, dear readers, could get published.

Their first issue is on stands right now -- if it's important to you to create more opportunities for unpublished writers, then please speak up and tell your local bookstores to order it.

And bring your creative works to the table! Slice is now accepting submissions for its next issue: HEROES. They give you the theme, you run wild with it. From my understanding, all variety of works and lengths will be considered. Just make it good ;)

You can learn more about their magazine on the website and if just reading this is making your typing fingers itch, well then, please see this link to submit:

Happy writing!

*How To Pitch Your Book To Perfection
*The Do's and Don'ts of Query Letters
*Marketing Yourself As A Writing Professional From Day One

This session will be part lecture, part Q&A, and all fun.
