Now is the Winter of my contentment

Forgive the misquote but I thought it an apt title to describe an upcoming June month filled with happy events and hopefully, some nice surprises.

First on the agenda is the Cape Town Book Fair happening from the 14th to the 17th of June. Myself and Derick (Muller) will be on the program on Tuesday 17th at 11:00 at the NB Publishers stand where we will be interviewed by Kabous Miering from the NB group.

This will be my first time appearing at the Fair so naturally I am counting down the days till it opens. The program this year is full of up-and-coming authors and book signings so it’s going to be very interesting to see whats happening out there on the new fiction front.

Next up is the M-Net Literary Awards where The Goblet Club has been nominated for the M.E.R Youth Prize. As cliche as it sounds, the nomination was an achievement in itself so whether I bag the award or not, I’m extremely proud of how far my little book has come.

Lastly, please look out for the upcoming edition of Boeke-Insig Magazine which contains an opinion piece by Derick and myself. The magazine should hit the shelves on the 10th June.

See you at the Book Fair
