It’s that time again

I’m launching my second book tommorow.

It’s called Fuse and its about three young people who suddenly find the world has turned against them.

Invite

My first book launch was a family affair with Derick, Marion, Brigette and Martinus. This time it’s just me, but Derick will be there supporting me with his guitar. He’s a wonderfully gifted musician. (His second book is on its way.) Marion’s mom will be there as he is still abroad, this time in the Middle East. (His second book is also imminent).

The kids from the school adaption of The Goblet Club Gif will be there. I started a Facebook Event and invited a few of them. Of course, I didn’t think that any would come. This was until Friday when I received a phone call from an excited parent who had convinced my publisher to part with my phone number. He said at least five of the cast members will be there including his own son.

Hunter Kennedy from Fokofpoliesikar, aKing and Die Heuwels Fanstasties will be there. He’ll be interviewing me but it really feels like it should be the other way around. He’s just so prolific. Wow.

As usual I’m in that headspace where I’m nervous, excited, scared, and a hundred other emotions at the same time. It feels like so long ago that I wrote this book. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback, so I’m taking this as a good sign. No reviews yet but I’m holding thumbs for a good one.

If your’e in Cape Town, please join me at The Book Lounge tommorow evening at 17:30.

    Your boys just dropped onto my mat! Erm, let me rephrase that... I will concurrently be reading Fuse by S.A. Partridge and Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

    Thanks!
