By José N. Uranga
The Buenavida America continues to follow The Buenavida Dilemma and The Death of the Brown Americano by describing the trials and successes of the Buenavida family from 1900 to the present in New Mexico and the southwest in general. A central theme of the book is whether Hispanics must necessarily sacrifice their language and culture in order to fully assimilate and be successful in the U.S. society.

Praise for The Buenavida America

“Generational novels have that rare gift of granting the reader insights into one’s own past and future. José Uranga performs that task exceedingly well, adding the pleasant placement of the Buenavidas into meaningful historical context.”
—Paul A. García, Ph.D, University of Kansas, School of Education, retired

“Sharing a life story is not as easy as just telling a story. José Uranga does this with historical references and background that intrigue and educate.”
—Rebecca Dukes, Vice-President, University Advancement,
San José State University

“José Uranga does a fine job providing important food for thought in The Buenavida America and his book highlights poignant cultural threads imbedded in the history of New Mexico. The fictional yet historical based ‘testimonios’ illustrated by the Buenavida family shed light on the complexities, challenges, and victories Hispanics experience while traversing identity in present day America.”
—Maria Martínez Bain, Ph.D,
New Mexico State University

A New Decade, and New Stories

IN PAUL SALSINI’S FIRST NOVEL of this series, The Cielo: A Novel of Wartime Tuscany (first place winner, Council for Wisconsin Writers and Midwest Independent Publishers Association), terrified villagers were trapped in a farmhouse during World War II. In the second, Sparrow’s Revenge: A Novel of Postwar Tuscany, a partisan hunted down the collaborator of a horrific massacre. In the third, Dino’s Story: A Novel of 1960s Tuscany, a boy came of age during the devastating flood of Florence in 1966. Then the characters entered a new decade in The Temptation of Father Lorenzo: Ten Stories of 1970s Tuscany (first place winner, Midwest Independent Publishers Association).

NOW THESE BELOVED CHARACTERS, along with a few new friends and relatives, return in A Piazza for Sant’Antonio, Five Novellas of 1980s Tuscany.

IN THE FIRST STORY, Donna writes a cookbook that makes her famous and threatens her marriage. In another, little Pasquale, in trying to save a cat, teaches the people of his village understanding. When Sant’Antonio is ridiculed because it lacks a piazza, a mysterious man who lives in an abandoned monastery comes to the rescue. Meanwhile, when Dino seeks his roots, he discovers a heroic grandfather, a loving uncle and a doomed village that may be inhabited by ghosts. And in Florence, Father Lorenzo tries to cope with the hysteria brought about by a serial killer of young lovers.

"A vehicle approached the Alliance from the direction of Silk Road. She immediately recognized Charles' Pierce Arrow and Miles, his chauffeur. But why would he stop here? She had not seen Charles since the day they had separated, having decided to try to each in their own way to heal from death of their child. Not realizing how sick he was, Eleanor left him to run away with Dante Ravelli. The death of her beautiful son gnawed at her heart every day. But Charles.... She had no idea if he had even begun to heal from the tragedy. The last time they spoke his pain seemed insurmountable, for he blamed himself for bringing Robbie, their child, to the mill to show him off. It was there he contracted diphtheria and died. When the chauffeur helped Charles from his vehicle her worst fears were realized. His fingers were like sticks; he could hardly walk. Kirkus Reviews, A Woman Possessed: "A fine historical novel with a feisty, engagingly flawed heroine and a cinematic plot." Blue Ink Press: "The author brilliantly traces Eleanor's decline from a strong woman of character to a spoiled socialite with one man on her mind.... Author Marilyn Hering writes confidently and with authority...this expertly constructed narrative combines many of the elements of great story telling."

In October of 1448, Vlad is a month shy of his seventeenth birthday when he leads a cavalry two thousand strong to the wooden walls of Tirgoviste. They are the last obstacle preventing him from reclaiming the throne held by his father. Determined to be his father’s son in every way possible, Vlad finally walks through the open gates where, in due course, he plans to free himself of the Turks and declare himself “Son of the Dragon”—Dracula. At last, he is prince. Dracula presides over Wallachia, a principality caught between two voracious predators: the kingdom of Hungary and the Ottoman, better known as the Turks. Bitter at God and left wondering if He even exists, Dracula faithfully follows his life’s purpose to free Wallachia, battling criminals and factions who attempt to break him with overwhelming force and terror. But as a sultan watches the feud from a distance and gloats, Dracula eventually turns his enemies’ tactics against them, finds love, is taken prisoner, and stands at a crossroads where he is faced with an agonizing choice: renounce his past, or embrace his fate. In this historical novel, a fifteenth-century warlord cursed by his church and torn between his code of ethics and his humanity evolves into a legend who soon proves that he is neither a man nor a prince, but something beyond both.

CHICAGO-THE GEM OF THE PRAIRIE-EARLY AUTUMN, 1871
The city was alive. Raw materials and finished goods moved as fast as the new railroads and lake schooners could carry them. Wisconsin white pine lumber was big business in a city composed of thousands of wooden structures connected by wooden sidewalks and wooden-block streets.

Competition was fierce, ruthless, and deadly.

An Eau Claire lumberman is killed in his hotel room and a competitor, Arlyn Rygg, from Green Bay, must work with the police to find the real killer in order to exonerate himself. His inquiries draw him into a maelstrom of intrigue and deception. Ultimately he races through the Great Fire and learns more than he ever wanted to know.

Praise for Natural Drift, a contemporary Western action mystery pinning a Montana County Sheriff against a rogue U.S. Marshall.

“I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed your novel, Natural Drift. I found it to be a very good read with a realistic plot and well developed characters. I honestly could not put it down once I started it.”
—Sheriff Thomas Rieger, Carbon County, Montana
