The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

“When I began Malaika, the author became a seemingly mental projectionist. The skill of his writing played a gripping movie in my mind. The ending brought me to tears and proved to me that despite the growing cynicism of our society and my own sometimes jaded view, it is love or it is lack of love that makes a story worth reading. Van skillfully captures love and grips your heart in this page turning novel. A must-read!”
- Tony Miller, author
