Updates for Strawberry Fields, A Book of Short Stories

Chuy Ramirez has announced he will translate Strawberry Fields into Spanish in an attempt to grow the market for the publishing house, First Texas Publishers. The working title for the novel will be "Freza".

He said he is taking novelist and friend Genaro Gonzalez' advise and will be deleting several of the short stories that he included in Strawberry Fields. "We will shorten it by 10-15 percent," Chuy announced. "Ideally, the novella will be at around 225 pages."

Ramirez will be selecting a translator from about 15 submissions he has received. He says the translator and he will be working collaboratively on the project which he anticipates taking about 6 months.
