Brand new book on Kindle!

Postby jeffw » Sat Aug 06, 2011 8:49 am

My book, Sons of Africa, has just gone live on Amazon. Hope it interests all you hardened Wilbur fans. I know he's still top-of-the-shop, but there has to be place for the little guys. Below, pasted a link straight to Amazon. The first chapters are available as a sample.

Hi Dirk! You have made my day! My first German download, what a great feeling! I sincerely hope you enjoy Sons of Africa and stay with me for many more adventures. Yes, Wilbur is a hard act to follow, guess that's why no one has attempted it. I am thrilled by your interest.
Best regards,
Jeffrey Whittam

Hi John - hope it works for you, as I told Dirk, just to walk in Wilbur's footsteps is a great honour, would not insult the man by pretending to be better.

There will be a hardcopy version, but got to steady the ship first.
Take care,

Hi Jeff,
Finished reading your book yesterday. It was a fast moving and entertaining piece of literature. Well done. I will check now and then your website/blog (http://jeffreywhittam.blogspot.com/) when your next publication will be out. Your blog is worthwile reading as well... I spend a whole saturday morning on it. I was working and living 20 years in Africa. My son was born in Mutare. For the moment I am working in Brazil but hope to be back in Southern Africa next year. Do you know the book "Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa" from Peter Goldwin? I reads more as a documentary of how "living" was in Zimbabwe from 1965 until independance.
Best, Dirk.

Hi Dirk - thanks for the feed back, really helpful. The sequel, Empress Gold will be available early next year; putting in the hours to get it finished.
Agree with your review of Peter's book; well written but more the documentary type, though nothing wrong with that. Myself - more the romantic dreamer so love books that lean to Africa's more adventurous side.
Mutare was, in its heyday a beautiful town, many a passing through there on my way to Inyanga.
If the urge takes you, take a few minutes to review my book on Amazon. Will do my best to make my blog entertaining. Perhaps a word or two on the Eastern Districts. Inyanga was one of my favourite places.
Again, my best to you for all your support. Stay with it for Empress Gold.
