Will Xolile Dalindyebo’s scandalous past in Japan come to haunt his new schemed success in South Africa, and to his team? And what happens when he returns to Japan?

Xolile is the main character in former rugby-player Gcobani Bobo and Elvis Jack’s new hero novel, ‘The Rise of the Dagger – What Happens in a Rugby Story When Life Interrupts? Bobo played for the Lions, Springboks and the Newcastle Falcons in England.

Xolile Dalindyebo comes out of nowhere to play rugby explosively. His history is uncertain but the fans love him. He is small yet very strong, electrifyingly fast with an intelligent sidestep and an instinct for the game.

He connives an arrangement with a divorced maverick journalist to construct his public persona, carefully using Twitter to project his image and to protect his past.

The book has twists and turns. It has all the behind-the-scenes sports drama the public is often not privy to – sex scandals, race conflicts, sabotage.

As Xolile Dalindyebo’s popularity increases, his role within the team grows stronger after some inner club maneuvering.

In parallel with this, Xolile embarks on a series of reconnaissance visits to unlikely places to recruit extra players, a bit like the search for special skills in the Magnificent Seven film. With extra talent and a slew of new tactics on the field, this could finally be the year of the Lions…

But nothing is as it seems in the world of rugby and Xolile’s past may still return to haunt him and the team….

Gcobani Bobo currently coaches and commentates on rugby. He played professional rugby for 15 years for a number of local and foreign teams, including the Springboks Lions, Cats, Sharks, Western Province, Stormers and the Newcastle Falcons in England. Elvis Jack is the author of a number of books.

‘The Rise of the Dagger’ is available on Amazon Japan, iBookstore, and Kobo.co.za.

Allison sat in the box above the half way line. She had had two brandy and cokes forced on her by a large man called Rudi whose son played scrumhalf for the Lions and her head was spinning both from the alcohol and the occasion. Several things had surprised her: it was late evening on an autumn Highveld day and the dark had fallen quickly. The flood lights were on they were simply spectacular: the field and the stadium were light as a summer’s day. She could see the players clearly, even their facial expressions. The crowd was loud but not raucous and only slightly drunk as a group. There was an air of excitement that she found infectious, attractive even.

How to Approach the Media: PR Tips for Authors

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedInTweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr

By Tiistso Maloma

This is a follow up to this last post, ‘10 Ways South African independent authors can market their books.’

It has been sitting in my computer for over a year. I thought it would be of use to someone out there.

I have noted the points herein since marketing my first book ‘Forget The Business Plan Use This Short Model’.

People get infatuated with soliciting press for their products, in this case books, it eats up more of their time without any results. I was guilty of it. Sometimes I still am.

The media is interested in what will help them sell, i.e. information their audience would love to consume.
