Happy New Year!
Been organising my work space and have unearthed two spare copies of This Day. I’m giving them away – free! – to two lucky readers. Leave a comment and on Friday, 20th of January, I’ll have a kid (or a dog, chicken – whomever is handy) pick two random numbers and send them off.
Please note, these will be sent via the South African postal service. They’re known to be quirky. I’ve yet to lose a book, but the further away you live, the longer it may take to reach you. Think of it as an experiment where we’ll have to hope for the best.
About the book: Loss has left Ella Spinner alone to care for her husband, Bart, who suffers from clinical depression. Their days now echo the tides: any progress made, rolls back. Yet Ella keeps pushing against the monotony. Set in Mossel Bay, Ella’s day begins like any other. But on this day the minutes begin to crack allowing change to filter through. As we cheer on her tenacity, we’re left asking ourselves what motivates anyone to try again. Published by Modjaji.
