I always take a special moment to appreciate showcasing an author from my neck of the woods in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Dr Rani Samuel has just released her next title on Amazon: A Time to Heal. Now, as she is way too modest to brag, I will for her ๐Ÿ˜Š

Within hours of being released on Amazon, her titled had already peaked as a number 1 new release in her category on the shelves. Not bad for a fellow Durbanite. Well done Rani ๐Ÿ†
