Debut for a new South African romance publisher

Kwela Books has recently opened a new imprint, Sapphire Press, which is dedicated to publishing local romance novels. The publisher, which has links to the True Love book club, will be introducing a new book each month. The series debuts with two novels: Lauri Kubuitsile’s Kwaito Love and Shukie Nkosana’s Cherry Marbles.
