To market, to market…

There’s a very cool market happening in Cape Town on Saturday:

 I’m going to be joining a bunch of other local authors at the Freeworld Design Market selling and signing copies of our books.

 The market looks like it’s going to be amazing, with tons of shit-hot local designers, live music, stone carvers (looking forward to seeing what that’s all about), Easter egg hunts and other kids activities and yummy foodie type stuff.

 I’ll be selling and signing my book, A Million Miles from Normal:

 And will be joined by a couple of other amazing local authors.

 The wonderful Sarah Lotz who has just launched her new book, Deadlands, which she co-authored with her daughter. It’s the first ever Zombie book set in Cape Town.

Lauren Beukes, genius author of Moxyland, and her more recent, much acclaimed Zoo City, will be there.

And the very tallented Sally Partridge will be signing copies of her first book - The Goblet Club.

So if you’re in the hood, come swing by and say hi, we’d love to see you. We’ll be at the first stand as you walk in the entrance.

Oh and one last thing, the Freeworld Design Centre have an amazing blog, if you’re a person who likes cool and uber-gorgeous stuff. Check it out here:

    I gate-crashed this event, ate many chocolates (supplied by the frighteningly well-organized and connected Paige), and sold eight books -- more than I do at the average Book Fair. Also discovered that I am very good at selling erotica and zombie novels. Esp if I have had a lunchtime glass of wine. Paige, thanks for your generosity -- I'm delighted Million Miles is being reprinted, and look forward to yr next book.

    This was so much fun! It was so great just hanging out with the girls. We kicked butt!

    Thanks Helen, I'm so glad you gate-crashed, I thought we made up a rather fabulous table. Was really fun, and I think we all sold a fair amount of books, which was a real added bonus. Sally, your Goblet Club was flying off that table.
    Maybe they'll ask us back for the Christmas Market.
