Seeking Nuyorican Cultural Consultant for my novel!Posted: February 26, 2014
My novel–a suspenseful, gritty, political, erotic, urban romance–takes place in NYC with a Puerto Rican protagonist. I am looking for a Puerto Rican woman, preferably between 25 and 45, who would be willing to read it and make sure I got the Nuyorican details right.
My family is two generations of California Boricuas, and we’ve never lived in NY. Same with most of my Puerto Rican friends. I’ve spent enough time in NYC to make the details seem real to New Yorkers outside the Latino community, but I want to make sure it’s authentic down to the smallest detail. Please let me know if you or someone you know might be able to help me.
Best way to contact me is via twitter, by tweeting to @ayadeleon.
