Writing What Matters
With Generational Trauma and Latinx Romance
Never Forget: A Latinx Mystery College Romance
Would you join a psychological study to pay for college?
Valencia Calderon never expected her college would be paid for through a study that dealt with her trauma of losing her parents before high school graduation.
The study's tech wizard, Xavier Gomez, is the only one she trusts and gets closer to since her best friend, Jasmine Dias, recently moved away and is difficult to reach.
As we join Valencia through the study, we begin to learn along with her, especially the study’s layers: who's working, running, and created it? It's up to Valencia to write her destiny through the past.
Never Forget will be an interesting mystery to delve into with an inspiring ending. It’s the right time to buy this second stand-alone book in an interconnected series.

Write From The Heart, Edit With Precise Measure: A Poetry & Short Story Collection - Volume 1
Get a taste of Christina Vourcos' writing through this collection. She takes to heart about being compassionate as she delves into different topics before and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Precise Measure doesn't mean perfection, but taking what she has and making it into something worthwhile.
Over several years, Christina Vourcos has been inspired to write 30 poems in 30 days during the poetry community's challenge NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month every year in April). Many were first written through her blog daily as she was inspired by a prompt or something she was drawn to. After some time, she believed the poems would be better read through standard publishing. So she collected these poems and poems written in the past and added three short stories inspired by two of her friends and her Greek culture. Throughout her poetry, she blends her Greek, Latinx, and Hispanic cultures and some nerd references. This is her first poetry and short story collection.
Christina Vourcos is working on her next poetry book, which will be more focused, with poems on her fight with lymphoma, mental health, and recovery & a novella-in-verse of characters dealing with mental health.

Writing Matters And So Do You
Writing community, we need to focus on mental health. Every writing book focuses on the process of crafting the story but it usually doesn't factor in our own struggles as authors. If we care for ourselves, we will be able to produce better writing. Especially when we're constantly told that we have to produce to be successful. If we run like we're running out of time, we will burnout. If we want to keep going, we have to pace ourselves & look at the long game. We make the dream work.
