africanbookscollective.gifI have just found out I’m on the African Books Collective’s home page. There is an article on the page about The Uncertainty of Hope winning the National Arts Merit Award (NAMA) for Outstanding Fiction. The article carries links to the ABC’s Uncertainty of Hope book page as well as links to my very own page on the site.

This is all brilliant and exciting news.

I like the way The Uncertainty of Hope book page is laid out. The page talks about the book and has some biographical details. It has also got sections that link to reviews of the book that have been published so far as well as links to interviews I’ve given that have appeared on and on the BBC’s Africa Beyond site. There’s also a downloadable excerpt from the novel and the page gives Shimmer Chinodya’s novel, Strife, as an example of a related book.
