Temporary Suspension of Transportation

Featured

Published recently by the Minister of Transportation of Argentina.  Below is the link to Mario Meoni’s announcement.  Also below is the gist of the communication in English.

Highlights:  Starting at midnight on March 19th, all domestic planes, long distance trains and buses are suspended completely until midnight March 25.  This is to prevent people who are not taking the health crisis seriously from travelling during the long weekend (March 23 and 24 are holidays in Argentina). They will also be checking roads. The government wants people to understand that they have to stay indoors and are not on vacation. Normal buses and trains will take only seated people, no passengers will be allowed to stand.

Author Bonnie Ridley Kraft

announces the release of a new novel

To Hold a Rainbow

book number three in the World Designs Ltd. Series

At the Three Frontiers area, where Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay come together in the dense rain forest, smuggling is rife. Drug lord Ramón Subizar is planning a major drug push on Christmas Eve at the borders. But the Gendarmería Nacional of Argentina intend to crash Subizar’s party. Add to the brew a volatile horse called Don Diego, a Buell motorcycle, a gypsy aeroplane pilot, and the drug lord with his new product of opium, and there is guaranteed to be an explosion.

From Dog Ear Publishing, To Hold a Rainbow follows The Kámen and The Long Way Home in the World Design Ltd. series.

Quote from an Amazon reviewer of The Long Way Home: “…one could tell while reading it that the author was familiar with the characters and locations from personal travel.”

Quote from an Amazon reviewer of The Kámen: “Could hardly wait for the next books to come out to see what was going to happen and where in the world the characters would go next.”

All three books are available from Amazon and from Barnes & Noble, in perfect bound or in eBook formats.  Direct links:
