Indie I go go

So here’s the thing. I really want to attend the Ibby International Congress in London taking place in August. My second novel, Fuse, is the South African nomination for the Honour Roll and I’d love to be able to walk up on that stage to receive the certificate personally. Besides, it would be a dream come true to network with the English literary community.

I’ll be couch surfing all the way (many thanks to overseas friends who have graciously offered their spare bedrooms and couches) but the plane ticket is still hugely expensive.

I’ve set up an Indie Go Go Campaign to try and raise the funds for the ticket, and will be scrimping and saving like mad in case I don’t get more than the $3 already raised (thank you benefactor person!)

If you have any spare pennies lying around in your Paypal account, you can visit my Indie Go Go campaign here.

If I don’t save up enough in time, at least I know that my boys are out there making me proud. Its weird to think that a few years ago I was sitting on my bed with a pen in my hand writing stories that I thought no one would ever get to read.

Crazy right?

    I've made a wee contribution, possibly under the name of "Warren Talmarkes" (site glitch?). Good luck, Sally! :)
