Riding the rails

Happy New Year, Legion of Fans (LOF). I'm kicking off 2013 with a bit of shameless self promotion in 'Escape' Magazine today (Escape is the travel supplement in various major Sunday newspapers around Australia).

Today's missive is about luxury train travel in South Africa which is something dear to my heart and, if you're read 'IVORY', you'll know a certain train is also very near and dear to Alex the pirate and his lady friend Jane. Enough said.

The Blue Train will feature in my next novel, 'THE PREY', due for release in the UK, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand this November.

You can read my review of the country's premier trains, Rovos Rail's The Pride of Africa, and the Blue Train here. Both offer a slightly different version of the same experience and there's not much between them, as far as I'm concerned.
