"And above all watch with glittering eyes the world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." - Roald Dahl

SAIR: South African Indies Rock Book Festival

Hey all

This festival is the brainchild of South African author, Carlyle Labuschagne, creator of The Broken Series.

It is a platform for indie writers to meet, mingle and network with each other. There are also fabulous international authors in the line-up ready to share their pearls of wisdom with us.

Being an indie author in SA can be a lonely experience. The market has certainly taken off in the US in a big way. While it has taken off in SA, we still have a lot of catching up to do, so I hope that this event will help to start to bridge the gap. I am grateful for this opportunity and so excited to meet everyone, being an indie author myself.

The event happens on Saturday, 28 March 2015 at Modjadji House in Roodepoort (Jhb, SA).   

Open to the public from 2pm.

For more information, to see the line-up and much more, visit: http://sairbookfestival.weebly.com/

I will be doing a follow-up post on this event, so watch this space!
