Award-winning author, Rigoberto González, reviews Xochiquetzal Candelaria's new poetry collection, Empire (University of Arizona Press, $15.95 paperback), for the El Paso Times. He calls this debut “[f]ierce and finely crafted” and “dazzling.” Read the entire review here.

Los Angeles Magazine’s latest edition of its online column “Reading List” compiles titles of local interest that are hitting the bookshelves the month of March. One of those titles is the much anticipated first novel from Manuel Muñoz, What You See in the Dark (Algonquin, hardcover, $24). In this fictionalized version of the making of Psycho, a famous Hollywood director and actress arrive in Bakersfield and a local love affair ends in murder. Read the entire list here.

And this just in: Robert Moreira, fiction editor of Dark Sky Magazine, interviews me about my forthcoming novel, The Book of Want (University of Arizona Press)…thank you, Robert! Note: At the end of the interview, there's a little contest to win a free copy of my novel. What could be better than free?
