WDR is the largest European broadcaster, somewhat like our CBC, and they seem to have taken to the German version of TBO in a big way. Not only did they post up this full page review, but there’s a radio interview with the reviewer on WDR radio! I don’t speak a word of German, but I have to admit, listening to the interviewer and reviewer discuss my book in German has to be one of the highlights of my writing career so far.
(Love the picture they posted on their website, too!)
My brilliant publisher, Wunderlich, has been busily promoting this book and I’m very impressed with their efforts! It’s been reviewed by BRF, a Belgian radio station, which has also posted a written review, and a German culture magazine. The results have been terrific: Die Geister von Havanna is now the #1 Canadian mystery/thriller on the German version of Amazon, and is hovering round the 3,000 rank in books generally. Very exciting!
