Book Buzz: Orchids and Memories: 3 Stories of Hawaii by Robert Soares, Illustrated and Edited by Erin Soares

Orchid flowersHello my lovely readers!  Since I’m increasingly becoming good friends with writers and other creative types, I want to be able to let you all know when they release new work.  However, I don’t feel like I could fairly review it, since I’m their friend.  Hence the new feature–buzzes!  I’ll just let you know that the piece is out, what it’s about, and where you can get it.  The rest is up to you. 😉

First up, my friend Erin, who you may remember illustrated my book cover, has edited and assembled a collection of three nonfiction short stories written by her grandfather chronicling his life as a Filipino growing up in Hawaii then coming to the mainland.  The collection calls to light many issues that I know are important to many of you, such as being non-white in America, the problem of higher education for non-traditional students, and environmentalism versus economy.  However, the collection also has universal appeal, as an older person reflects on his life and the successes and mistakes and possible mistakes he’s made.  I think it has wide appeal, and is of course beautifully illustrated by Erin.  It’s available for $2.99 via the Kindle store, and I do hope those of you who find the description appealing will check it out.
