As an independent author in South Africa, it is rather challenging to compete against both local and international authors who are supported by professional publishers and retail book stores. As a result, most of us are forced to market ourselves exclusively to an international market.
Deborah Du Plooy of SKOOBS book store, however, is on a mission to break that mould. She will tell you that she has hosted over 80 book launches in 9 months for local authors wanting to be recognised in South Africa. She has a dedicated section in her store for South African authors and actively promotes them on her Facebook page. Thank you Deborah for supporting us!
I’m really excited to be hosting the Jozi launch of my latest novel, Unicorn at SKOOBS Theatre of Books, Montecasino on 02 November. Please join me for a fun-filled evening. I’ll be supplying snacks, signed books to purchase, a Q&A session and some giveaways.
