All evening, I have been writing messages into the fly leaves of copies of Eleven Miles, and signing my name. Tomorrow, my editor an the inspiration for this story, Boikanyo Phenyo, will add her signature to those copies. We will be selling them for just £10 each at the Southern African Empowerment and Cultural Workshop in Grays, Essex.
We will speak about the book, how I came to write it, and our determination to use half of the proceeds from sales to provide a school bus to take children from remote villages in Botswana to their secondary school, giving them greater access to education in that country.
I am so excited about this event. It’s going to be a great day. It would be wonderful to see you there, if you are in the area.
