News and Notes from the author of AMERICA LIBRE and EL NUEVO ALAMO - FALL 2009




Behind The Scenes at the AMERICA LIBRE SoCal Tour



Book signings, college appearances, TV and radio interviews ... In two event-filled weeks I logged nearly 1000 rental car miles at twelve locations from Bakersfield, to Los Angeles, to San Diego – and back. It was great seeing old friends again – and making many new ones.

Check out some of the behind the scenes photos and comments.

Recent AMERICA LIBRE Reviews

"It has been a long time since a book can move a person to think, get angry, or, feel empathy with the characters. This is one novel that does all three."

“Let me tell you what... It's well written. It's believable. It's touching. It's fast moving. It's thought provoking. It's scary. It's one of the best books I've ever read!”
Elizabeth T. Neas

“I, being of Puerto Rican descent, born and raised in New York and having served in the military, have experienced much of what the main character (Manolo) experienced.
Efrain Ortiz, Jr.

“America Libre is a well-conceived, well executed, cautionary tale about the deterioration of civility and the encroachment of terror in America.
Rebecca Coffey - Writer, filmmaker and radio host

“AMERICA LIBRE by Raul Ramos y Sanchez introduced me to an amazing new author. What a surprising book! I thought this was never going to be "my kind of book". I read lots of genres but this seemed too military/warlike/history for me. Was I wrong!”
Karen Haney
