A Novel Valentine

Sincere thanks to the stunning team at Hills of Africa Travel in the USA, for requesting an interview about my novel for their blog. This has been the catalyst for creating the website www.outofair.com – artwork by my gifted stepson:

The article will take the form of a two-post series, the first on Monday 14 February, which is Valentine’s Day. That also happens to be the day the story begins. If you’re not familiar with it, take a look at Chapter 1 to discover Gina’s Valentine surprise – not what she had in mind for her romantic dinner à deux!

Hills of Africa Travel are also the reason behind the penguin pictures on the website, because it was while documenting their magic Soul Safari 2009 that we visited Boulders Beach in Cape Town. Here’s a snippet of video we created from the encounter. If you watch closely, you will spot the camera in Dave’s hands 🙂

I’m happy to add that out friends have recently featured on Yahoo! Hills of Africa Travel Announces Privately Guided African Safaris – richly deserved exposure for an exceptional organization.

On the subject of the book, another huge THANK YOU to all who took the time to comment on chapter 1, contributing so kindly to the Reviews page on the website:

It’s wonderful to learn that the book appeals beyond our borders…like Valentine’s Day. Wherever you are, I hope you’ll have a tantalizing time!
