Teaser Tuesday: 2008 and the Valle de Cochamó

So, here is the link to the 2008 journals for Beatrice as she vacations in the Cochamó Valley.  Just in case you were wondering, the Cochamó Valley really does exist in the mountains of Chilean Patagonia.  It really is very isolated, and it really is that beautiful.  Sadly, I haven’t been, but very much hope to go someday.

Publication news for This Same Earth is excellent! I have done the final edits on the manuscript, and it is at the proofer right now.  Once I give final approval, it will go to the formatter and then out to you readers! ARCs will be going out to reviewers soon, so there should be some reviews posted by the release.  Thanks again for all your amazing enthusiasm.  You are all an inspiration to me.

I absolutely loved the response I got to the Polyvore sets I created for Gio and Beatrice. I guess you all like clothes!

Here are a few pictures of the valley via Cochamo.com.  If you are a rock-climber, I’ve heard that it’s a dream come true.

    Hi, I’m fascinated as to how you got to hear about the Cochamo Valley. I lived there for about a year and it is as beautiful as you imagine! I never expected it to turn up in a novel (which I very much enjoyed!). As it happened I used to guide groups up the valley where we stayed in a cabin much like the one you describe and horseback is truly the best (only!?) way to travel around there. I can definitely recommend a visit if you get chance..

      Hi! So good to hear from you. You know, it was really kind of rabbit trail research that led me to the Cochamo valley as a setting. It seems like such a beautiful hidden paradise. I would LOVE to visit someday, but had to do most of my research online. I know there are other ways to get into the valley (boat, I think?) but I loved the idea of Beatrice and Giovanni riding horses. Glad you thought I did it justice, Debs! It’s definitely one of my dream destinations. 🙂
