On Friday I received this in my email inbox:
Yes, it’s an invitation to the book launch of one of the hottest new numbers on the shelves this Christmas, Nuwe Stories 2. Of course, being one of the collaborators, I get a front row seat at the event and one of the first signed copies, but that doesn’t mean you’re not invited. In fact, this here is my official invitation to each and every one of you to go out and get multiple copies as Christmas gifts, wedding gifts, housewarming presents, Birthday gifts, just-to-say-I-love-you gifts and early Mother’s- and Father’s Day gifts. Also get one for yourself, since you’ll want to read this – I promise. I read the entire collection of stories in one sitting. The hard copies will become available in major bookstores everywhere in the country in the last week of November/first week of December, so there’s plenty of time to get it wrapped up for your mom, dad, grandparents, siblings, dog (yep, your dog will want one) and of course your spouse and all his/her family. There will also possibly be an electronic version available from Kalahari and on Kindle. More about this when I know for sure.
For those of you who managed to read this far, if you are interested in coming to the launch, inbox me. For a modest amount of biltong, chocolates and wine, I might be able to sneak you in.
xoxo to all my future fans:-) (That’s how much I love this book!)
P.S.: I am able to sign books at elaborate coffee-and-lemon-meringue meetings and three course lunches upon invitation. Dedications and photographs might become more costly… perhaps a trip to the Bahamas? I’ve never been ;-P
