Hi Tweedle

I went into Estoril Books at Fourways today and found that "Safari" by Tony Park is costing R130. They are out of stock of the first edition of "Silent Predator" but it did cost R175 for a slightly larger than normal paperback. The assistant said the normal paperback size will be coming in soon and will probably cost about R130.

I would assume Exclusive Books prices will be much the same.

Both books are wonderful, so you will have to make a plan!!

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!

Ecospook

As far as I know the order is:

Far Horizon
Zambesi
African Sky
Safari
Silent Predator
Ivory (about to be launched in South Africa)

They do not follow on, so you don't have to read them in order.

Hi Hippotragus and everyone.

Yep, that's right about the order of the books, but you don';t have to read them in any particular order.

Mrs P and I are in Malelane Camp at the moment and yesterday met the famous Martie Goddard, Ecojunkie and some other forumites.

It's good to be back in the park again. We're in Kruger now until Jan 3 2010.

Hi Tony et al.

Just finished Ivory. I didn't realise it was available in SA yet, so, when I saw it in local bookshop, I snapped up a copy without delay!

Another very good read!! Interesting plot and pretty topical, as usual.

Hope another book is in "production", as I am looking forward to more of these good books.

Thanks Hippotragus!

I'm in pretoriuskop in my tent, right now, working on another book (in between checking posts on the forum, of course).

I might be swinging through Satara for a night when you're there in December.

Hi Tony. Sorry to have missed you, but hope the book launch went well in Jhb. We did, however, meet Martie on the road and had a good chat.

On another thread, you say how you incorporate real places, etc. in your novels. That is one of the things I enjoy about your books. I can imagine exactly where the action is taking place (not in Zim or Moz, though - haven't been there yet).

My daughter read Silent Predator on our latest trip to KNP and I enjoyed saying to her "that's where .... happened". She loved the book and is now reading Far Horizons.

Have you got any further with getting your books into the KNP shops?? I would have thought they would sell well - especially the ones that include action there.

Attention all Forumites who are fans of Tony Park.
I have received an email from Tony, and here is part of it.
I'm in zimbabwe at the moment and rarely get on the internet. Before that nicola and I were in tanzania and kenya, also out of contact. I haven't seen the forum for ages and am not likely to for a couple of weeks.

I will donate a signed copy of Ivory to the silent auction.

You might also let any other mites who might be interested that I havne't disappeared, I'm just lost in Africa. I'll get back on the forum when I'm back in SA.

cheers

tony

As you can see, there is an opportunity to secure a signed copy of Ivory. Go for it. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Hi Tony - good to see a post from you. You've been very quiet recently - hope it is because you are busy writing, and that there will be some new books on the shelves soon!

Nunqu - you must read all Tony's books - really good, believable stories! I don't know where you live, but the major book stores in Fourways/Sandton have them, or will order for you if they are out of stock.

HI Hippotragus,

Sorry for the absence. But you're right, I have been flat out finishing my eighth novel.

My seventh, The Delta, comes out in Australia in August but may not be in South Africa until later in the year, or possibly early 2011 as I now have a new publisher in South Africa as a result of landing a UK publishing deal.

I'll be back on the forum more often soon!
