Thank you so much for your wonderful letter last week and I apologize for my lengthy delay in responding. I have been battling with my publishers (who are in South Africa) to get my books listed and stocked with Amazon for a month now. They are reluctant to do so and I wonder Matthew if you and some of your friends could assist (or perhaps through the Free Republic web site)? Could some of you simply email Jonathan Ball Publishers and ask that copies of African Tears and Beyond Tears be sent to Amazon.com to make American purchases easier and faster. I would be so grateful for help on this one. The man to mail is Geoff Bonney: firstname.lastname@example.org . Perhaps if there are more people than just me complaining they will begin listening !
I am sad but not surprised to hear you say that we shouldn't be holding our breath for US assistance for Zimbabwe. It is so utterly tragic that things are falling apart and we are slipping back into the dark ages almost un-noticed by the rest of the world. For now all I can do is what I do and so I just keep on writing about it ever hopeful that more and more people will hear of the horrors of living in a dictatorship.
Thank you again for writing Matthew and I hope you and your family have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas.
With love and best wishes, Cathy
