Please welcome Mark to our group of authors here at Great African Reads! he just published The Ringtone and the Drum: Travels in the World's Poorest Countries, which i think will be of great interest to a lot of readers here. Feel free to interact with him here with any questions or comments you have about his book.

And Mark, feel free to "shamelessly self-promote" your work here. this is your thread to share your work with us! Anytime you have a review of your work you'd like to share with us, post it here! and in the future when you publish more work, let us know here!

Mark Weston (markweston19) | 14 comments Hi there, I've just posted a new excerpt from The Ringtone and the Drum. It will be of particular interest to those who are feeling wistful for African journeys!

The excerpt is here, but it comes out better if you click on "download the e-book": http://bit.ly/13OBvVx

Hope you enjoy it.

Mark

Mark Weston (markweston19) | 14 comments Hi, just a couple of updates about my West Africa book, The Ringtone and the Drum. Zero Books has posted two sample chapters on its blog. They can be read here: http://bit.ly/13ujM8H

And here: http://bit.ly/16HuZU3

There is also a short interview about the book with me on Radio France Internationale here: http://bit.ly/10k1Deo

And starting on April 24, a Goodreads Giveaway will put up a free signed copy of the book as a prize. I'll post the link to the Giveaway here nearer the time.

All the best

Mark
