And what did the professor say? I asked my spies. You won't believe this! He quipped : Hadedas give off that raucous sound because they fear hights! This caused quite a giggle! But when you read the book, you will learn that in fact I had a fear of landing!
Top: The professor telling my fans about The Hadeda Project currently undertaken by the Animal Demographic Unit at University of Cape Town.
Bottom: My ghost writer in friendly discussion with Professor Underhill.
You will be interested to know that a portion of the proceeds of the sale of my book will be donated to the ADU in particular The Hadeda Project and I look forward to supporting this research.
Hopefully "The Valley of Bones" will soon be available online, and in bookstores. My ghost writer will be signing books at The Vines Shopping Centre, Durbanville, Cape Town on Saturday 4th of August 2012.
In next blog I will introduce some juicy snippets from my adventures in The Valley of Bones!
Over and out! Ha-ha-ha-deda.
