A little blurb about America Libre:
AMERICA LIBRE is a gripping fictional account of U.S. immigration issues set in a near-future where Latino rights groups riot against the violence of border patrols and vigilante justice reigns in the American Southwest. Against this tumultuous backdrop, ex- Army Ranger Manolo Suarez finds himself romantically drawn to a Latina radical activist, threatening his marriage, his family and everything he knew and believed about patriotism.
We are also doing something different today. Raul has been hosting a contest on his blog and since this is the last stop on the book tour, he thought it would be fun to bring it here and then pick a winner. Woo-hoo! I am posting his comments and photo entries down below. If you really like one, give it a shout out.
So welcome Raul to Carolyn in Carolina. I am so glad I got to host you today!! As you see, I am a fan. And peeps, please feel free to comment or ask questions. Raul will be around and he is willing and ready to talk!! Remember, a random comment will be chosen and someone will win an autographed book!! If you would like to buy a copy of his book, click on the Amazon widget on my sidebar!
Also, I would like to thank JoAnn Hernandez, author and the brains behind BronzeWord Latino Authors, for coordinating another great book tour!!
