All Universe Publishers has invited the Belizean author to attend a book symposium to be held at the Miami Dade University in Florida in the month of November.
I just want to say thank you to the people that listen to me and to my presentation and giving me an opportunity to talk about my book, giving an opportunity to relate to the people of Orange Walk and to Belize as a whole. At the end of the night the book lunching, organized by the Banquitas House Of Culture, proved successful. It is a little bit difficult for me right now financially but probably I would see what I can do maybe I can make it.
