    What a great website! I was drawn to it by your comments on blood diamonds but look forward to exploring more of your blog and your links, which look well-selected. They also match my interests–from Africa to cooking!
    I thought you might like to see the site and blog I set up recently to publicize my novel, Heart of Diamonds. I’m not looking for a plug, but check out the blog at heartofdiamonds.com/blog for some items you might find of interest.

  10. Hi, Shan,
    I thought you’d like to know that my new novel, Heart of Diamonds, is shipping from Amazon.com. and will be in bookstores nationwide next week. It’s an exciting romantic thriller about scandal, love, and death in the Congo.

    As the book cover copy reads, “Amid the bloody violence of the Congo’s civil war, TV reporter Valerie Grey uncovers a deadly diamond-smuggling scheme that reaches from Africa to the White House”

    You can see more details at Amazon.com. It will be in bookstores September 1 as well. Just ask your favorite bookseller for ISBN 978-1601641571.

    Heart of Diamonds was published by Kunati Books, named Indepenent Publisher of the Year at the 2008 BEA.

    I had a great time researching and writing Heart of Diamonds, highlighted by the two research trips my wife, Nora, and I made to Africa. I hope you’ll find it a good read. Your friends might like it, too, so don’t hesitate to pass the word along.
