I believe Tony is on the Pacific Dawn on a cruise at the moment as part of a book club thingymajig hence no reply. He has'nt blogged since he left either. Have a look at his blog where he does give info regarding book tours etc.

HI Rusky, A-J and Timepilot. Yep, been away for a week on a cruise around the south pacific. Not Africa, but fun - and I found out that they have "Island Time" on the islands, which is remarkably similar to "Africa Time".

I got stuck in Tonga for an extra day before flying home because our plane didn't arrive from australia.

I'm heading to South Australia, WA and Qld when the next book comes out, but no word on Melbourne yet. I'll post details soon on the blog, rather than here. Will also be taliing in Joburg in September.

A local meet for aussie forumites would be a great idea, though. i"m up for it!

WOW I wouldn't like to try. I read them some time ago and have already passed them on to a charity book sale, so I can't even check in them for you. Sorry :redface:
