How Not To Save The World NGO fundraiser-turned-thief takes unconventional approach to global conflict resolution.

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- How Not to Save the World by debut novelist J. Yinka Thomas has already achieved bestseller status on Amazon.com for action & adventure fiction – mixed with a little romance and a lot of humor, it's earned its reputation as an unforgettable literary experience.

In How Not to Save the World Remi Austin is a fundraiser for the African Peace Collaborative (APC), a conflict resolution nonprofit founded by her late mother. Frustrated by her inability to raise funds and faced with the imminent closure of the APC, Remi turns to a life of crime to keep her nonprofit afloat. From Sydney, to Tokyo, Geneva and Cape Town, Remi transforms from a fundraiser too shy to speak during staff meetings into a daring international art thief who must stop a war from breaking out and figure out how to save herself from a life behind bars. With the help of her best friend, a designer and inventor who creates gadget-packed gowns, Remi eludes a dashing insurance agent and a terrifying stalker, all while redistributing the wealth of the world, one work of art at a time.

"I laughed out loud at the main character's delivery. The plot is clever and unusual." – Nancy Peacock, A BROOM OF ONE'S OWN

"How far would you go to advance your career? To save a country? These are the questions posed in this ... smart, sexy, first novel." – John Manuel, THE CANOEIST

"Remi Austin ... is one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan action figures in contemporary American fiction."  - John L. Jackson Jr., RACIAL PARANOIA
