This week in publishing news - How Africans got the spotlight

This week in publishing news - How Africans got the spotlight

 

I love it when somebody in the spotlight takes a moment to talk about African writers. This week was double dose of limelight (why is it called limelight???) for Africans involved in the publishing industry. Both moments were brought about thanks to Joanna Penn, courtesy of her weekly self-publishing podcast titled The Creative Penn.

Interview with an author - Sonia Killik

Interview with an author - Sonia Killik

 

Sonia Killik, metaphysician, life coach, author, mommy.

In this post we interview first time author (and mom) Sonia Killik on her recently released book that focuses on the beauty (and science) of pregnancy. Now whilst my vocabulary on the topic of pregnancy is limited to “congratulations”, the reason for my chat with Sonia focuses on the marketing of her title. As you are about the see, Sonia is years ahead in the marketing game, and it shows.

Interview with an author - Rachel Morgan

Interview with an author - Rachel Morgan

 

In the spirit of sharing the knowledge of local authors who are making an impact on Amazon, I am really excited to be picking the brain of South African author Rachel Morgan. Rachel is another one of those authors who is so down to earth that you would never realise you were speaking to someone who sells thousands of eBooks on Amazon each month!

Any author looking to better understand the effort involved in publishing on Amazon as well as the winning techniques used in earning a living from writing and sharing stories you love HAS to pay attention to the helpful feedback that Rachel is kind enough to share. Read through her answers and realise the investment that, like our other authors, Rachel is making in each title that pours out of her fingers and through her keyboard.

Interview with an author - Robin Jackson

Interview with an author - Robin Jackson

 

Recently, whilst on a visit to my coastal hometown of Durban, I was lucky enough to meet up with local author Robin Jackson for coffee and a chat about his success as a South African author publishing online. Robin's focus in his first published book Losing the Faith revolves around the world of a young Jehova's Witness who begins to question the authority of the church infamous for it's cult of followers. The questioning of his beliefs led Robin on a journey of self-discovery and ultimately rejection from the church he had grown up with.

Robin has achieved international acclaim for the title Losing the Faith and now speaks country-wide on the topic of cults, sharing cautionary tales based on his personal journeys. Deciding that writing and speaking was not keeping him busy enough Robin founded Expand Your Mind Publishers. This enables Robin to help other authors who are traveling the same road he knows only too well.

Interview with an Author - Lyn Pickering

Interview with an Author - Lyn Pickering

I was very luck to recently catch-up with local South African author Lyn Pickering. I caught up with Lyn on her beautiful (and very green) property in Hilton, Kwa-Zulu Natal. After pleasantries were exchanged we got down to business. Once the coffee and cookies (a staple in any author's house) were  served we caught up concerning her latest online escapes in creating and promoting her latest two trilogies,  Opus Dei and Nimrod as eBook format books.

I hope you enjoy her responses as much as I enjoyed my chat with the author herself. Let us know if there are any questions you think should be added to future interviews.
