So I decided to put some focus on personal/self-published projects. The big news is that I’m having an official launch for The Doll That Grew on Friday the 5th March 2012. It will be a virtual launch.
Please invite me to be a guest on your blog so I can talk about:
- writing for children
- publishing rights (the rights to The Doll That Grew reverted to me after the book was published by Macmillan South Africa)
- the writing life
- making a living as a writer
- writing for different platforms
I also welcome reviews on Amazon (I can send you the Word manuscript so you can read the story and share with potential buyers on Amazon what you think about it. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. )
The Doll That Grew is currently being translated to Setswana, Zulu, Xhosa, Afrikaans, French and German. Translators have been assigned and now it's a matter of time before the books are ready to be loaded on Amazon too.
I figured since I’m publishing the book electronically, it will not take too much to translate it too and it would be lovely if parents were able to read the story to their children in their native languages. Many thanks to all the people who agreed to translate the book for me. Your assistance is appreciated. Muchly!
