Radio Capicu Talks To Raul Ramos Y Sanchez, Author Of America Libre

AMERICA_LIBRE_w-shado Familia…

When I was invited to take part in a virtual Latino book tour by my friend JoAnne Hernandez (Bronze Word), I got excited. I was excited because for the past few weeks, I have seen this author everywhere. When I say everywhere I mean, blogs that I frequent, radio shows that I listen too, I see him promoting on Facebook and we have had some great exchanges on Twitter. So much that I started following the tour around to see if I can win a book somewhere. Well at last we are here with my stop on the book tour and I do want to congratulate all the blogs that did a fantastic job offering potential readers some depth to the online promotion of this book.

As usual, I do want to be a little different than most, so I decided to ask Raul Ramos Y Sanchez to chat with me during tonight's Radio Capicu broadcast. He is indeed a brilliant writer by all accounts but having chatted with him on the phone, I thought it would be something that would add value…especially if YOU the listener got a chance to call in and ask your questions.

So to prepare you for tonight's broadcast I have decided to give you some info here today but save the contest (in which you can win a copy of America Libre by calling in to the show) for later on tonight.

See you there…

As I am,
