Loteria by AbigailLarson Loteria by AbigailLarson
"Loterķa" is a Mexican board game, similar to Bingo in America, but instead of numbers, you match up images (such as "The Devil" "Mermaid" "Death" "Arrow" "Skull" "Moon" etc.).

This short story collection by Cynthia Pelayo takes all 54 cards in the Loterķa deck and matches each card with a corresponding myth, fairytale, folk story, or superstition. Ghosts and ghouls abound!

I had the very great honor of designing the cover art for the collection, and it's available for your Kindle on Amazon! The print version will become available in two weeks. Check it out here: [link]

this is beautiful and incredible! what an incredible idea!!! i love this concept!!

is that what you were talking about when you mentioned the book? i know you have many projects, but if this isn't what you were talking about, then i should definitely buy this one.

i find it interesting (i was a cultural anthropologist major, and african studies minor in college... still a miracle, that miracle being the support of my family, that i graduated on time), culturally, that in america, we have bingo, a game based on numbers, and in mexico, they put pieces together of things like: death, skull, arrow, devil, moon, mermaid.... all in together. in our culture, despite our very violent video games and tv shows/movies, we would never allow a game of "bingo" with that much "violent" imagery... oh america. you are so very odd so very often.

anyway, if this isn't the book you were talking about, i'm absolutely buying it. i love the idea! it's brilliant! is that the book you were talking about ?

it sounds incredible. i'm a book person, not a ebook person, i like the feel of the pages between my fingers. comes with being a writer, i guess? who knows. i know it's also because i'm just a stubborn luddite :)

keep creeping!

love and thanks,
hillary

I STILL PLAY LOTERIA WITH MY FAMILY!!!

dude -- Should see it when the sisters come over -- they all gather round and place bets and you just hear screaming and such from them XDD its cute! Regular bingo is so boring -- Loteria is all exciting for some reason;;;;;
