It’s been a while since my last post. I don’t know about you, but after a year in lockdown and worrying about vaccine availability, the last thing on my mind was updating my website.
I do have a little bit of news to share. My fourth novel, Sharp Edges, is now available in Afrikaans from Lapa as Skerwe. I am thrilled with the translation by Zelda Bezuidenhout and even more so with the amazing neon cover by Megan Bird.
What do you guys think?
The English version won the M.E.R. Prize for Best Youth Novel in 2014.
Get it now:
On the subject of Afrikaans books, I have another Afrikaans story (a short story) included in Die Meisie Met Uitroeptekens In Haar Oë & Ander Stories hitting shelves in June this year. The anthology features well-known local authors like Jaco Jacobs, Zelda Bezuidenhout, Refiloe Moahloli, Cliffordene Norton, and Mercy Kannemeyer.
Here’s the cover:
Pre-order it here.
Last but not least, keep an eye open for news about The Girl Who Chased Otters, my new English novel coming out from Modjaji later this year. I’m literally refreshing my Inbox every half an hour for news of the cover.
