Tour Stops Revised

As you may or may not know, my book Oh Gad! launched midnight on April 17th at the Best of Books in Antigua (see video highlights and my thanks). Also for up to date news on my writing career check http://jhohadli.wordpress.com and/or http://www.facebook.com/JoanneCHillhouse. In terms of interactive networks, you can also find me at the Caribbean Literary Salon, Red Room, Simon & SchusterLinkedin, BlogHer, Good Reads, Creative Caribbean Network, Poets and WritersShe Writes, and Commonwealth Writers.   Oh Gad! excerpts can be found on Good Reads, Signifying Guyana, and of course on Amazon where you can Search Inside.

I’m not sure where/why the original Tour Stops Real and Virtual evaporated (WordPress ghost) but below is my attempt to reconstitute it.

Reviews:

By Brenda Lee Browne – published at her Handbags and Chocolate blog – July 2012

“Joanne’s confidence in telling our story in a  contemporary setting with some history and mythology thrown in without making you feel  like you got to go to university to understand that our navel string is tied to the ‘muddy’ and sucks up our ancestors……bravo Joanne…bravo…..can’t wait to see this on the ‘Book Club”list across the diaspora and beyond.”

By Barbara Arrindell – published in The Sugar Mill, Volume 2, Issue 2, May – August 2012, Page 4

“it was a great read. A really well written book.”

By David B. DaCosta – published at the Caribbean Literary Salon – April 23rd 2012
