AMERICA LIBRE is one of Latina Magazine's "10 Hottest Summer Reads."

I'd like to publicly thank the entire team at Grand Central Publishing for their efforts in bringing my debut novel AMERICA LIBRE to such a wide spectrum of readers.

Yesterday I was thrilled to discover Latina Magazine, a monthly publication for young, influential bicultural women with nearly 3 million readers, selected AMERICA LIBRE as one of its "10 Hottest Summer Reads."

This national recognition follows the May selection of AMERICA LIBRE by USA Today as one of its coveted "Summer Reads."

I feel very fortunate for the support of everyone at Grand Central and want to acknowledge their efforts. All this is still in advance of the novel's official July 29th release!
