A few children’s authors were on a Book Tour, correction, Indie Book Tour to the Eastern Cape, South Africa.  Jann Weeratunga, myself and Evadeen Brickwood went on a road trip to visit schools in the beautiful East London, Grahamstown and P.E.  Unfortunately, we weren’t able to visit P.E. (Nelson Mandela Bay) due to protests and burning tires on the highway.  But, and this is a big but that I will keep to the end because it’s a good one! Believe you me!

Evadeen Brickwood, an award-winning author and Jann Weeratunga, loved and inspiring children’s author hit the road, before sunrise on a Sunday morning.  Two brave women, driving down to East London, and various towns, to share their stories and inspirations with the youth.  We can’t expect the youth to do things we yearn for them to do if they don’t have anyone to mimic.

Myself, was fortunate enough to fly down since I literally could only join them for three days and a half because I’m a full-time Mom of two beautiful toddlers.  In all honesty, it’s one of the hardest things that I’ve ever done. But it brought us even closer

This is a teaser and introduction to the book tour and I am going to take you on a virtual book tour.  Sharing the laughs and successes, as well as the frustrations and bonds, friendships we built and beautiful strangers we met.

We literally bombarded Algoa Fm, because they almost canceled a scheduled interview with us.  Come to think about it, it was fun and so spontaneous.  Jann Weeratunga even entertained the staff with Polly the parrot.  But,  a little more about that next time.  Enjoy the rest of the week and Mommies, remember, you are more than enough and your love is powerful and resilient.

Love

Cora xoxo
