Macka Diamond's Book Launch Postponed

Betrayal, Deception, Bad Mind and Sweet Revenge, seasoned with a spicy lesson which we all could use, is basically the sum of what populates the pages of Macka Diamond’s debut novel, but anxious fans who couldn’t wait to get their hands on ‘BUN HIM!!!’ will have to wait just a little longer, because of the upcoming General Elections.

PageTurnER Publishing House and its business affiliates have decided to change the launch date from August 21st to September 18th. 2007. “We didn’t want to postponed the launch of Macka’s book,” says PageTurnER Publishing House, Director of Marketing, Leesah Larmond, “but good judgment says that this is best, as changing the date would facilitate the full support of her fans.”

The date may have changed, but the plans for BUN HIM!!! remain the same. Weekenz, located at 80 Constant Spring Road will come alive on Tuesday, September 18th at 7:00pm for the Official Launch, open only to the media and invited guests. Keynote speaker for the event will be Professor and Author, Carolyn Cooper, coordinator of the Reggae Studies Unit at the U.W.I. Naomi Dixon of PageTurnER Publishing House, coordinator of the event, promises a night to remember, with appearances and readings from a wide spectrum of the entertainment fraternity, followed by a FREE star studded After Party, open to the public, with lots of give-aways and performances from Macka Diamond and friends.

The event is sponsored in part by, Weekenz, Island Paradise Limousine & SUV Rental, Kaboom Energy Drink, Cyber Center, Hype TV, RE-TV, Baba Roots, Contours Hair and Beauty Supplies, Arttek Printing and the Reggae Studies Unit at the U.W.I. Zip 103/Hype TV’s Nicky Z will be the host for the evening, while patrons, well-wishers and the curious will be able to groove to the vibes of Coppershot, alongside a host of some of Dancehall’s top selectors.

The book will be available to the public for the first time at the After Party at the discounted price of $500. (In store price - $645) and will be available at, and also distributed locally by Sangster’s Book Stores and its subsidiaries, but in the meantime, fans who can’t wait for the official copy, can get a taste of what’s to come by going to PageTurnER’s Official Website, and read first chapter for themselves and while they are there, play the Macka Diamond/Bun Him!!!
