Darkwater Syndicate Editor Ramiro Perez Commences Memoir About His Adventures Growing Up In Cuba & Miami
Things only start to heat up after his arrival in Miami. His parents having decided that he should lay low in Miami while Castro's uprising blows over, he leaves Cuba for the United States. Alone, with only a few dollars in his pocket and a decent grasp on English, he struggles to make ends meet. Eventually, Ramiro is recruited into a counterrevolutionary movement formed in Miami to oppose Castro's regime. In a blink, young Ramiro goes from penniless immigrant to soldier of fortune with a bottomless expense account backed clandestinely by the CIA. There's just one problem: he's a staunch pacifist, but he doesn't let this fact keep him from spending the agency's money on living the good life in the Magic City.
Mr. Perez's memoirs will be chock full of anecdotes, some heartbreaking, others laugh-out-loud funny. At the moment, he is about 20,000 words into this project, which will be published through Darkwater Syndicate. No release date has been announced as of yet. Be sure to check back regularly for more information.
Simon and Perez are still at the helm, and now they've got newcomers Douglas Fairbanks (no, not that Douglas Fairbanks) and Apara Moreiya on board to direct the Syndicate to continued success.

Everything changed on August 8, 2013. On that date, we published our first book, The Gullwing Odyssey. That fantasy/comedy paved the way to our future success—it sold extremely well and hit #5 in Amazon's Bestsellers in 2014. It's won several awards and continues to be one of our best-selling titles ever.
