who said it was going to be easy?

Today the only reason I don't just throw in the towel and quit the publishing biz and pay back the money I owe and call it quits, is because I've been given up on before... and I've failed at things before and quit things before and gotten fed up, and angry, and despondent... and too many are watching and seeing if the "loser" is going to lose yet again, as they all predicted.

It's my pride that keeps me going now. And nothing else.

Why is SA so blasted corrupt, on all levels???

Congrats Les!!

Leslie Hyla Winton Noble - make a note of that name please! The author of "Baa Baa Black Belt", "Regina", and "Tabika" one and two has been head-hunted by an American publishing company for the rights to ebooks, hardcover and possibly even, movie rights on his books!!

I'm proud to have him aboard P'kaboo as our wonderful and patient editor, highly skilled and knowledgeable and never shy to roll up his sleeves and do research on behalf of the author. I'm also proud to be able to say that we at P'kaboo distribute his books - where applicable (we're a still fledgling company ourselves and don't yet have access to all that many bookshops). He is self-published via "JustDone" in Durban, who have listed his books on, from where the American publisher prospected him.

Well done Les, here's to you, and HUGE success!
