Angelina’s Story.

Angelina Freyer is the ten year old girl who tweaked two lions’ tails. Well, the first one when she was ten, and the second after she turned fourteen.

Two incidents are true in that they are based on real-life events. The outwitting of a lion by a child, and the massacre of aircrash survivors in the African bush.

And we’re talking Kindle Freebie on Wednesday 1 May. Amazon also gives away Kindle for Computer software for downloading Kindle books directly onto computers.

Some fab reviews for this page-turner on Goodreads, Smashwords and Amazon …

‘… I loved this book … a wonderful African story … I was thoroughly hooked … a delight that will be loved … Van Rooyen does it again (referring to Saturdays Are Gold) … I was hanging onto the edge of my seat … this is a riveting story that kept me awake late at night … could be made into a blockbuster movie … an enjoyable read with lots of charm and surprises … I hurried anxiously from one page to the next … an absolute page turner … Van Rooyen is a magical storyteller … this is a wonderful story … I could not put it down … it kept me on my feet the whole time … a tight enthralling story … would make an exciting movie …’

In the first four months on Smashwords, readers awarded this novel 119 Likes. This is phenomenal and ranked the story with the top eight most liked books on Smashwords.

Genre is female-oriented, safari-adventure, romantic thriller.

Most of my readers are American, British, Australian, Canadian, with a few in Europe and one I know of in Panama Canal. It was wonderful to hear that. Still working on Africa.

Caption to pic. Lousy cover isn’t it, but I self-pubbed this novel, am  7000 miles away from home, and didn’t have the cash to do better. That is supposed to be a vulture. (But is really an eagle. Nobody has complained so far.)
