Write-a-Thon Team: Clarion Ghost Class (2021)

Writer Bio

Hispanic writer that will take any excuse in my work to insert a ghost, or monster, or alien, or other - and usually a mix of those.

Writing Goal

The Fearful Cemetery is a Gothic Western about Aztec vampires, a girl who can see ghost, and gentrification in the wild west setting of California's modern day Inland Empire. I'll be revising/ rewriting my novel in progress, The Fearful Cemetery. In between chapters, i may edit or write a separate short story as to not feel pigeonholed, however those won't count for this goal. I want to finish my novel revisions by the end of the year.

Fundraising Goal
