Off to the Printers!
More than 400 Karoo Space subscribers
have pre-ordered their copies
of our new story collection
called Karoo Roads
. That means we call the printers
, indeed, because it tells us there are enough people
out there who still value holding a well-crafted printed edition of a book
in their hands. They will receive, counter-to-counter via Postnet
, an author-signed, numbered, First Edition
- with a few gifts of appreciation
thrown in for thanks. The book will be ready for delivery in early November.
The First Five Hundred
group will be paying R350 for the book
, which includes tax
costs. And if they should order another copy of Karoo Roads
is around the corner, they know someone else who is mad about the Karoo
and the gift price is just right
, then additional books in that order
will cost only R250 each.
So, for R600
, at least two people
are going to have some great holiday reading
this year. And boy, don't we all need a break
from the dreaded Echo Chamber
of those daily headlines,
what they call The Eyewitness Blues?
Coming on top of a long killer drought,
went into Covid-19 Lockdown
like the rest of the world
and took a knock
in so many ways. But this summer, we've mostly all come out swinging
and doing what we do best: telling the beloved stories of the Heartland of South Africa.
