If you’re a reader, which I sincerely hope you are, then you’ll have heard of Scribd by now. If you haven’t, here’s the low-down: Scribd is a subscription service for all things bookish and a lovely way to pay a little for a lot of reading material. Each month, for only $8.99 you get *unlimited access to their large catalogue of books, magazines, audiobooks and documents, which can be accessed from your phone, tablet or computer at your convenience! And now, to make the deal even sweeter, my short stories are available for Scribd subscribers both in Afrikaans and English! The full “Nuwe Stories” short story series (Afrikaans Edition) is available for your reading pleasure. The series consists of three anthologies: Nuwe Stories, Nuwe Stories 2 and Nuwe Stories 3, each comprising a collection of Afrikaans language short stories from millennial writers such as myself. And of course my own short stories are there too. Look out for “Onder die Brug” (Nuwe Stories), “‘n Kis vir Boel” (Nuwe Stories 2) and “Utopia” (Nuwe Stories 3).

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
