AMERICA LIBRE’s Official Release

July 29th is a red letter day for me. Today marks the Grand Central Publishing official release of my debut novel AMERICA LIBRE. As you can imagine, getting published by a major house is a long and challenging process. But that’s all the more reason to celebrate the hard work. So I’d like to invite you to share in the fun – and maybe win a little cash.
The “My America Libre” Photo Contest
Winner’s share: $50 Cash

Here’s how it works: Take a digital photo of your copy of AMERICA LIBRE. Post it on the Photos section of the Friends of AMERICA LIBRE Facebook group or on Twitter at #MyAmericaLibre. The most original photo as judged by our distinguished panel of international aesthetic experts (that would be me and my agent) will be declared the winner on August 19, 2009. You can enter as many times as you like, too. (By the way, be inventive but keep it legal. Please don’t risk life, limb or imprisonment in your creative pursuits. It’s only 50 bucks.)

You can enter on Facebook here.
You can enter on Twitter with the hash tag: #MyAmericaLibre

Contest ends August 19, 2009.

I hope you’ll take part and would love to hear your thoughts on this contest.

With best regards,
Raul Ramos y Sanchez
