MAXMOM here...

Dear friends,

 I will be taking a blogging break for about 10 days and am really looking forward to this long-needed excursion into the bush - to be part of nature and my heritage.  Yay!
For those who would like to know, we are going to visit 

in the North West Province of South Africa.
If you would like to read more about this beautiful place,

SHIBULA is home to the "big-5" and other beautiful animals. If, by some remote chance, we have internet access, I might do some blogging about our holiday, but I can't make any promises.  I, most certainly, will be putting up pictures on my return.  :)
I simply can't wait! (even though I will miss you all)
In the meantime, please don't forget to order your copy of MAXDOG:
If you are an INTERNATIONAL READER, please click HERE
(where you can also read some great reviews!)
SOUTH AFRICAN readers can get their copy from most major bookstores, or email me at

Also, look out for a review of MAXDOG in this month's 
CESAR's WAY magazine 
(South African edition)
 which will be on the shelves next week - 12th JUNE 2012.

Sending lotsaluv to you all - my wonderful blogging friends.
I will be back soon...

Have a great break! The lodge looks lovely and I almost hope for your sake that you have no internet access and thus a real 'get away from it all' holiday.
