It saddens me that I will never be able to publish my work through a local, South African, publisher. The reason for this is because South African publishers don’t publish works that isn’t set locally, at least not that I know of. So basically if it doesn’t contain South African or African elements, they won’t even consider it. Never mind 10 years, our publishers are about 50 years behind.
I’m going to try the traditional rout but that’s still a long way away.
