The Life Cycle of a Book Part 3 – Celebrating the release with friends. What better way to celebrate the end of a project that has taken a large slice of your life over the previous year than to throw a party?

It’s great to celebrate the release with a mate who knows all about it. Tony Park and I congratulate each other on our latest releases.

The Life Cycle of a Book Part 2 – The book arrives!

After many long months during which Whisper at Dawn was merely a figment of my imagination, the courier arrives with a box of shiney new books. Suddenly it’s all been worth it. The tedious hours and aching back caused by too much time at the computer are now long forgotten.

Break out the champas. Whisper at Dawn is in print at last!

From July to September we covered more than 8000km over seven wonderful weeks in South Africa. This country has so much to offer. Comparisons between South Africa and my other favourite place, Kenya, are difficult to make. The game-viewing in both are simply stunning.

Again we stayed a few days with our friends, Tony and Nicola Park on the outskirts of Kruger National Park before venturing into the park itself where we stayed at a number of different SANP lodges. During the second half of our time we drove southward down the coast to Cape Town, stopping at many delightful places en route.

What a treat it was to get up close and personal with this supreme plains hunter!

The Life Cycle of a Book Part 1 – In the writer’s garret.

Someone once said: Writing a novel is like walking a long and lonely road where we authors sometimes wonder why we started the journey at all. Hmm… I think that person was me. Anyway, there were many long and lonely hours in the garret researching, writing, re-writing and editting Whisper at Dawn.

Not a bad outlook for a garret
