My first novel, THE AFRICAN BELLY DANCE, is being published next week.  THE AFRICAN BELLY DANCE is a belly dance murder mystery.  Big Apple Belly Dance is the only place you will find a belly dance murder mystery today.  We are having a book signing party with live belly dancers followed by a reading and then signing. This is going to be the sexiest book signing party ever!


Our venue is as follows:


Wednesday, March 26, 2008 from 6:30pm-7:30pm



THE AFRICAN BELLY DANCE is a murder mystery featuring Santina Cole, a first generation Italian-American from Newark, New Jersey. Santina was raised in a blue-collar family with deep Catholic roots and much to the chagrin of her family, becomes a belly dancer. Santina is a feisty, funny, red hot woman from the hood who finds herself in the middle of trouble. While performing in West Africa at a Lebanese nightclub, a murder occurs. Santina is in the thick of it and helps find the killer. Get on this magic carpet ride that takes the reader from Newark, New Jersey to Manhattan to West Africa.


I've been getting terrific press thus far and had a great time being interviewed by world renown dance critic Eva Yaa Asantewaa.  Check out the podcast as follows:
