Karoo Retail Therapy

The first quarter of 2021 has shot past us in a blur, out here in the normally slow-paced Karoo. We went roaming the Eastern Cape Karoo in search of stories, appeared on Kyknet's Karoobewoners series, got drenched in some welcome downpours, mailed our books to all corners of the globe, and made a connection with both the popular Getaway magazine and the edgy Daily Maverick online platform.

And oh yes, we began work on Karoo Roads II - More Tales from the Heartland. Disclosure: it's going to be a cracker!
