Yep. Had a few emails between me and the author. I liked his sample chapter so I mentioned it here. Then I let him know I mentioned it here and invited him to join us. I figured people might like to get to know the author a little better.

He said he is on a deadline right now but will like to join the site as soon as he finishes.

Oooh... cliffhanger.

I'm hooked -- i'm ready to pick up the book, if nothing more than to admire the cover.

Thanks for sharing, Sal.

The kid in the story grew up in North Las Vegas? I usually don't like romance novels but this story is based on the life of the kid he met.

I want to read the book. I added the website to my favorites so that I won't forget to look for this book in January 2005. I am always willing to support up and coming Chicano artists.

Hmm. Book of the month for the Book Club in February?

Hey everyone. I just joined the forum and I'm glad I did. Your kind words about the upcoming novel really make me feel good.

Default A great new book

I just finished reading Forever my Lady by Jeff Rivera, I think I heard about it here on Soy in a posting by DD. I just wanted to share what a great book this was. It was one of those great stories that you dont want to end. It really leaves you wanting more and from an email I got from the author he promises more. Here is a link if anyone would like to order it http://www.JeffRivera.com/SPECIALORDER.htm. If you write BESTSELLER at the top there is a special discount for the next few days. It is a great first book for this author and it would be great to support a fellow hispanic.

Hey guys, Sal just recieved his copy of Forever My Lady, and you have to see the cool shout out Mr.Rivera sends to him on the back of the book, i think his shout out is a representation of the soy community you all have built as a whole and it's a shout out to all of us and hopefully if you can in 05' pick up your copy at your local bookstore, or online, sal will be posting more info soon...

Rivera quotes Sal .............."awesome" -soychicano.com

and it's one of two quotes on the back cover...it gave me chills when i seen it....and i'm soo proud of sal's hard efforts to keep soy what it is and alllow us to actually interact with the author of Forever My Lady....

awesome work Jeff and Sal.....**V.H

Default No problem! Soy Chicano -- Forever My Lady

No problem quoting Sal on the back cover. I very much appreciate him saying such great things about the book. And I'm very thankful to the entire SoyChicano community for being so supportive of the book.

Amazon.com gave the book 5 stars! So did Heartland Reviews. And I'm signing with a major literary agency that represents 50 Cent in January because they LOVE the book as well.

I'm very blessed and very thankful.

For those of you that would like to read the first half of the book for FREE then go to: http://www.JeffRivera.com/PART1.pdf

then if you like what you read so far you can go out and get the whole book!

Everyone have a very happy holiday season, OK?

This book is Simply Awsome! No other way for me to describe this book.

I woke up the yesterday morning to the sound of Vero crying. I asked to see what the problem was and she replied "This book is so awsome." She was reading my signed copy of Jeff's Novel. She had only been two chapters deep into it and she had been through many emotions. I highly recommend this novel to everyone.

I will be adding a small add to the main page of this site with the following link to help provide members and visitors with a way to purchase thier own copy of the book.

Jeff Rivera's: Forever My Lady

The link is pointing to Amazon.com's website via SoyChicano's Associate Account to help earn a small amount of money for our website. I encourage everyone to get a copy of this novel by using the above link. I hear that if you purchase over $25 from the Amazon.com site, you will be able to get the Free Super Saving Shipping. You can see the Amazon.com website for more information.

This book is great! I loved it and my 15yr old daughter loved it. It is going around her high school now cuz all her friends wanted to read it. What was even better was that Jeff actually wanted to know your thoughts on the book he was very intrested in my opinion. I look forward to reading more of his work!

Yes, I agree. It is cool that Jeff likes to know your thoughts about his novel. He would like anyone who has read his book to let him know what thier favorite parts are...

Jeff is a member of this website and checks out this thread so it is possible for people to reply to this thread and let him know what you think about his book. I am sure he is looking forward to everyone's replies. Let us know what your favorite parts of the novel are...

Default I Need Your Help!

My book, Forever My Lady is FINALLY available in bookstores but I need your help!

There are hardly any Latino or Chicano-themed books in most bookstores because we need more people requesting them. If you would please call your local bookstore, public library, and school and REQUEST that they please get several copies of Forever My Lady by Jeff Rivera it would help me so much. If they say it's not in their system, tell them they can get it through INGRAM. (They'll know what that means).

Every person counts, if enough people ask they will keep it in bookstores, if not ... there goes another Chicano-themed book by the waste-side.

Thank you so much,
Jeff
