its publications strictly in e-book format. The first of these digital publications is titled La Mesa (The Table).
It is written by our CEO and Publisher Rudolph Alvarado.

Reflecting on this experience, a grown Antonio imparts the story of a lesson he gleaned one day when a rich man
in a long car of a rich person offered his mother a king's ransom for her dining room table.
"La Mesa," Alvarado said of the piece, "is really the first of a series of short stories based on life lessons I learned
while growing up on a West Texas farm and in the city of Lubbock, Texas. Living in Michigan today, I miss my family
and friends that still live in Lubbock, but most of all, I miss my days as a boy growing up under an endless West
