Miami Manhunt and Fort Lauderdale Manhunt, the readings

I want to thank everyone who came out last Thursday to attend my first South Florida reading for Miami Manhunt at Books & Books in Coral Gables (where three of the chapters take place.) Actually, a majority of the book takes place in Coral Gables and Miami such as Versailles restaurant, La Carreta and Miracle Mile because I lived there before moving to Boston.) I also want to thank fellow journalists and readers who stopped by Saturday for my reading at Borders in Fort Lauderdale. It was a lot of fun reading the first few pages of the book outloud and it was great to see familiar and new faces. Below are some photos from both events.

  1. I can't believe I missed it. I love the books! My friends and I could relate to soo much...

    Hoping to see more in the future...




  2. Thanks Raul.
    Can you email me your contact information, so I can add it to my reader's list? If I have any other readings down there, I can keep you informed of future events.

    muchas gracias!

  3. This past weekend, I saw "Miami Manhunt" prominently featured with other new books at the Ft. Lauderdale Borders.
