AMERICA LIBRE Will Appear as Stage Prop on ABC Primetime Show

Today, I learned from my editor at Grand Central Publishing that AMERICA LIBRE has had another brush with Show Business…

The ABC primetime sci-fi drama NO ORDINARY FAMILY will include AMERICA LIBRE as a prop during episode #109 scheduled to air Tuesday, December 7 at 8pm. 

AMERICA LIBRE will appear in a bookstore scene both on the shelf and as a wall poster. Thanks to my editor, a number of other Grand Central Publishing titles were included in the shoot. But only AMERICA LIBRE along with TELL ME SOMETHING TRUE by Leila Cobo and TRY TO REMEMBER by Iris Gomez were selected by ABC as wall posters.

If you own a copy of the novel, I hope you’ll tune in to the show and enjoy this fun connection to primetime television. If you don’t own a copy … well, naturally I hope that changes. With that in mind, I should mention…

The E-Book version of AMERICA LIBRE is available for just $2.99 until November 1, 2010. More details here.

Finally, please do me a favor and share this news with your friends. The more copies of AMERICA LIBRE out there, the better the chances the novel could become a show or movie of its own.

With best regards,
