My self-published memoir, OH OAXACA, is available in the Oaxaca Lending Library for 100 pesos. I have donated copies as a fund raiser for our all-volunteer library.

Thanks for your interest. I only printed 50 copies, which have sold out. This was a "beta" edition and I am in the process of correcting errors, typos, etc. Eventually it will be on Amazon and Kindle, when I find out how to do this. Next printing will be in a couple of months. I will post info on this forum.

If you're in the U.S. or Canada, (or if you want to send a book so someone there), the publisher has some copies of the first printing of my memoir "Oh Oaxaca." Send $10 per copy to Four Season Mysteries, 119 Hill Road, Dummer, N.H. 03588 5409 and include the address where you want the book sent. This isn't a How To Move to Mexico book, but a collection of stories and anecdotes about my life in Oaxaca since 1997.

Ah, the mysteries of Mexico. I received a message on Facebook that my book is on Amazon!!! So I checked, and sure enough it is, complete with color photo of the cover! However, no price and the comment: "out of print, limited edition." I worked hard trying to get it on Amazon, but always bumped into an impossible snag, so gave up. It's now in its third printing and can be ordered from the publisher at www.fourseasonmysteries.com (603 449-2210) for $15, including postage and handling.
Brag time: I have three pages of terrific comments from readers, which mean more to me than pesos anyway.

Hi Geri,

I bought your book from the details you'd given on this site more than a year ago! I am sorry that I have never responded to say how much, both my husband and I enjoyed it!
You have great insight into this wonderful country that so many of us have adopted.
Thanks for a great read!

Geri, I liked your article about Jose the Mono maker and his impact on kid with autism.
