Whiplash meets Dark Video at Constantia Exclusive Books

whiplash_tr_coneb.JPGdarkvid_tracey.JPGpeter_mel_tracey.JPG

Exclusive Books in Constantia came up with wonderful concept that started today – Cape authors in-store signing books. Tracey Farren, author of Whiplash was there with Peter Church, author Dark Video.

i arrived early to make sure all was in order and brought some Whiplash bookmarks for Tracey to hand out to customers. I enjoyed meeting Peter, I always love to hear about how authors got their books published. I wish you every success with your book. Alex Smith, from whom I first heard about the concept, arrived to say Hi and to get started on some early Christmas shopping. I can’t believe it is almost that time.

I didn’t stay long, just long enough to take a couple of pics for the Modjaji Books records. Oh and I want to mention that I heard yesterday that Whiplash is in the CNA, which is a huge boost for Modjaji Books and for Tracey.

I hope Tracey and Peter tell us more about the experience and how it was for them. I got an sms from Tracey to say that she sold several copies of Whiplash and that it was good for general PR.

    Just shared this on FB - 7 years later. I can see that the quality of pics one can take with a phone is seriously better than it was in 2008!.

    And now we can all say Shhush, and wait to see what will happen next. You must be so proud of where the first novel you published has got to, Colleen. Not to mention all the publications that followed after. Modjaji has rained her blessings on so many people. No drought there!

    I remember the day in Constantia! What was I thinking with that shirt? Tracey had book marks to give away and I didn't know what to do? Congratulations to Colleen and Modjaji, a proud South African venture. And to Ben for all you have done for us with Books Live and more.
