I'M A WRITER, TEACHER AND COLLECTOR OF EXPERIENCES, NOW ON AN AWFULLY BIG ADVENTURE: SELF-PUBLISHING MY NOVELS
Why? Because I can - the rights have reverted to me. And more importantly, I want to give back to an indigenous community who taught me the true meaning of generosity. It all starts way back, in 1994 in fact, when I undertook a research trip into a remote area of Southern Africa to find the last band of southern African hunter-gatherers said to be living among the Ju|'hoan people in northern Namibia.
Now that was an adventure!! Dear reader, I wrote the book; two of them in fact, and then, sob, my lovely publisher went under. But I kept the relationship with the extraordinary Ju|'hoan people I met, visiting their Kalahari desert homeland often. Ten years on, I've retired from my academic duties and have time to learn new skills.
Self-publishing promises to be as tricky as changing a tyre on a 4WD vehicle laden with canisters of petrol while the mother of all bushfires races across the desert towards me. But hey, I managed. And I also managed to find reverse gear quickly when that bull elephant charged. So, Amazon KDP, bring on your worst.
