From Cape Town with Love: Launch week! Blair Underwood on "Today"

This week marks the hardcover publication of From Cape Town with Love (Atria Books) and a Vook video e-book edition with exciting video clips dramatized directly from the book's pages by Blair Underwood and other familiar faces, inluding a memorable appearance by Kellita Smith ("The Bernie Mac Show").   

From Cape Town with Love is a collaboration between me and my husband, Steven Barnes, and actor Blair Underwood.   This is the third in our Tennyson Hardwick mystery/thriller series that began with Casanegra and In the Night of the Heat, which won a 2009 NAACP Image Award.  [Read earlier posts to learn more.] 

Today, Blair Underwood appeared on NBC's "Today" Show to promote From Cape Town with Love and his new NBC series, "The Event," where he'll play the President of the United States. (Mondays at 9 p.m. this fall--our old "24" TV viewing spot!).  

During today's interview, "Today" played video clips from the footage Blair shot from our novel!  

Read the unabridged hardcover AND the abridged Vook--which will be worth the price for the video clips alone.  Bring a computer or iPad to your book club meeting with a bottle of South African wine, and you'll be a hit!
