I got news that the One World anthology of which my story, The Rich People's School, is a part, is selling quite well. All proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders and a royalty cheque is ready to be turned over as I write this. I'm quite excited about this as the book came together when a group of writers met online and we did everything from beginning to end and then handed it over to the publisher. I was very proud to be part of the project and am happy it is doing so well. Read more about the One World process here and here.
I was also happy to have my story mentioned in this review of the book.
The Bed Book of Short Stories is now out. I haven't got my copies yet as I asked the publisher not to send as I would collect them in Cape Town but everybody who has seen it is quite excited. I was the compiler and have a story inside so have a real interest in it doing well. The ebook can be purchased here. Can buy books here or you can contact the publisher about getting copies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a review of the book at LitNet. Here's an excerpt:
There are so many more stories in this collection of thirty which deserve mention, but it’s impossible to pay tribute to them all. Suffice to say that this is a Quality Street box of stories: each entirely different from the one before and each completely delicious in its own right. Do yourself a favour and spoil yourself with this delightful collection. Take a copy, well, to bed. It’s obviously the only place to savour The Bed Book of Stories.
Yeah for Modjaji Books! Yeah for the Rain Queen!
