Here I am, perched one-hundred-and-five feet in the sky with the green canopy of the jungle far below. It billows like a giant parachute covering my kingdom.
-- from "The Adventures of a Maya Queen" in Baby's on Fire by Liz Prato, published by Press53. This is a newly-released collection of 12 compelling stories, full of life, that are like catching up with a bunch of friends you didn't know before.
Prato has several readings and other events coming up before the end of June, up and down the West Coast, in Denver, and in Santa Fe. Check out her calendar for opportunities near you.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
