The “Dear James” Project is now in pre-production
PALOMO PALACIOS, is one of the most humblest and endearing human beings I have had the pleasure to serve (gorgeous then as a young man, and even more so today looking very suave and dashing, while attending one of his public functions in bowtie and formal evening attire). PALACIOS emigrated to The United States from Mexico at a young age. Having grown up with very limited means and with only his dreams to back up his courage, he flew to New York with only twenty dollars in his pocket.
He took on a job in a hotel where he washed dishes, and then became a Porter. From there he eventually graduated to the position of Doorman in a very posh residential building that opened his eyes to a world he never knew.
He also became a silent witness to the secret lives of the rich, the famous and the powerful. Years later, Palacios worked his way from becoming a hair stylist into owning and managing his own salon and ladies’ boutique, where he got to intimately observe human behavior, interactions and relationships at their best and most controversial.
Utilizing his gifts and his unique experiences, he authored several books that regaled interesting stories that, although were written mostly as fiction; were inspired by real life events he witnessed as a distant observing bystander. Palacios is a natural creative who is ever spurred on by the compulsion to keep on writing about what he knows, and masterly turns his works into, if somewhat controversial and not least, extremely ‘risque’, yet impacting and heart stirring stories that were written as fiction, but were for the most part based on actual events.
The controversial characters in Palacios’ novels reflect the times and lives of the individuals he became closely acquainted with, when he was at the height of what had built into successful career in the hairdressing industry, catering to the needs of the many celebrities and well known personalities and those involved in the entertainment sectors who frequented his salon during his time, as a well respected, and much sought after professional in the industry.
OTHER NOVELS BY THE AUTHOR
- Confessions of Carlos, Emilio
The Author also has five other, but still as yet incomplete Novels which shall make for riveting reading. We look eagerly forward to all of Palomo’s works as each project has been translated into English and targeted to the English reading market.

Excerpt from the Novel:
” Dear James! Accepting your relationship with the one you love so deeply, didn’t come easy for me either, but I eventually did because my love for you both is much greater than my views and principles.
Your love may have been controversial, but could I blame you both for following your hearts? No, my dear James, it was far better than not having loved at all.”
Your best friend,
Gen. Frank Bowden Snr. (Ret.)

My concern is that readers get to discover the feelings and the emotions in the
characters I have created by given them life in my novels. Its very important to me
and try to reach into my character’s soul.
8. How did you get started in writing?
As a nine years-old-boy in my small hometown in Mexico, I used to write letters to
people who never had the opportunity to go to school, or ask the assistance of their
relatives. They also did not know how to express their thoughts, and this is when I
started using my imagination in writing my stories even as a young boy, and in a sense I
I am grateful to those people , who have indirectly helped me in developing and
nurturing my love for writing.

11. How much of your personality and life experiences are in your writing?
There is a part of me in every one of my novels directly or indirectly, by nature
I am a shy person, I have tried to overcome it but I have not succeeded, at the
same time I have discovered that being shy I concentrate all my attention in other
people’s worlds, and that has helped me to go deep into my characters that I have
12. Do you have a set schedule for writing or do you go just with the flow?
I am retired now, and the clock became not as important as it was when it was ruling
every step of my life, now I am writing as my moods and inspiration allow me,
At any time of day and night.
14. What about you in general? What makes you tick? Makes you you? Things
you like to do and what prompted you in writing?
When I was a young man I fell in love deeply with the popular girl in town, but
I was not reciprocated and I was hurting inside, at that time I started to write about
my sadness and suffering, then I started feeling a healing by writing about it
without sharing my inert feelings with anyone. What makes me me?…There was
this humble woman in Mexico, who as a child, had lost her parents and she grew up
in the care of her very strict aunties. She was full of wisdom and life’s knowledge
and and had a natural instinct and intelligence bout many things, even without
the benefit of any scholarly education, and I was very lucky to know her, and will always
be grateful for her guidance in my life,and I am so very proud of her, and its a privilege
to be her son.
15. Among your own books, have you a favorite Hero or Heroine?
‘DEAR JAMES’ is my first book, I have written nine manuscripts and in everyone
there is a Hero and a Heroine, In this one JASON is my Hero, he is his own
man, he knows what he wants in life and he has my admiration.
16. Where do you see yourself in five years?
I do believe that life is a thief of time at any age, and honestly in my life I was never
sure about “The Tomorrows” but always been thankful and grateful for “The Todays”
and for me its “The Present” what counts.
20. Have you ever experienced Writer’s Block? If so how did you work through it?
I am not sure if I should call it a Writer’s Block, When I am not completely satisfied
I immediately stop writing, and by the next day I have a much better approach into
22. Anything else you’d like to tell our readers?
The unknown readers will be the judges of my work and not my friends who may
be kind to me, I respect and believe any comments coming from the readers,
because in the final analysis it will improve my writing, and for this I am grateful.
23. Lastly, do you have any words of encouragement for unpublished writers?
Please believe deeply and without a doubt about the work that you have created
and don’t feel down because someone has rejected your work, keep in mind
that many wonderful books and unforgettable movies were turned down before they
were discovered by a more talented publisher and movie producer.
At the end the losers were the one’s who do not believe in your work.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT “DEAR JAMES” PROJECT
The work known as “Dear James” was originally written in the Author’s native tongue, Spanish, and later translated into English. Ghostwritten contributions throughout the work were provided by Emerantia Parnall-Gilbert. This work is now optioned to film with a UK Film company, working the Hollywood circuit, and the preproduction preliminary processes are already in full force as we speak.
“Dear James”, one of those stories which took me thoroughly by surprise, made a huge impact on me personally, and became a project I wanted to be part of and contribute to. “Dear James” (as all Palomo’s novels are) was loosely based on the Author’s personal encounters over the labyrinth of his life’s rather amazing journey, while working in Hollywood, and Manhattan NYC, the people he befriended and became acquainted with. We would categorize and rank this tale as ‘controversial’ by all accounts; and may by some readers, be considered questionable content. It will have its critics also.
However, the core characters (all wonderful creations brought magnificently to life by this sensitive and most talented author, in a most personable and unforgettable way, are real, endearing, heartrending, home hitting and again...unforgettable. Especially where the diversity of gender issues, values on love and romance, loyalty and devotion comes into play, this story, once read, will remain indelibly imprinted upon the reader’s mind .
Palomo is currently working on the sequel “Life After James”, and I shall again feel very privileged to be able to contribute my share of ghostwriting services to make this work and Palomo’s future works and unique creations, the best they can be. For me personally, I can’t wait to read “Life After James”, as I had wanted to find somehow, ‘closure’ to “Dear James”, and now we will find that peace and fulfillment very soon. The social conscious awareness issues and quests within the pages of this book, which touch succinctly and dramatically upon the more tender gender diversity issues and elements, and which run parallel in all of the Author’s works, they are of significant importance to the author personally, and were forged from the heart.
