July 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Brighton Publishing LLC signs author Daniel Chavez, Sr. for his anticipated book, “Marcelino and the Curse of the Gold Frog,” scheduled for release in early spring 2012.

Texas in the early 20th Century was an especially hard place for migrant workers, struggling to eke out a living and settle into their new lives in America. Years on the road have taken their toll on the Soldano family. The work, the poverty, the ever-distant American-dream never seeming to come any closer, no matter what they do.

But for the Soldanos, the real nightmare begins when Maria, the family matriarch, develops an unexplained power to move objects with her mind—what scientists call telekinesis—and the power to heal the sick. Feared immediately as witchcraft by her husband, Marcelino, and soon by the Church, Maria’s discovered ability sets of a series of events that lead, inevitably, into a downward spiral toward madness and violence. How the Soldano family copes, and survives, is a tale readers will remember long after they have turned the final pages.

From a Comanche shaman whose curse causes terrible damage, to a moment when Marcelino must save his children’s lives, Daniel Chavez has written a fascinating book combining tales from his own family history intertwined with important cultural morals that will keep their meaning for generations to come.

“At the heart of his stories is a message that family matters most, above all other aspirations,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “With that in mind, Chavez weaves a series of tales both haunting and inspiring, thrilling and heartwarming, that readers of all ages will love and return to time and again.”

Daniel Chavez, Sr. is a descendant of the characters in his book, and the stories he has shared are but a part of the history of his family in America. He lives and writes in Kansas.
