You may not yet be able to buy a Kindle here yet, but SA already has its own official Kindle store. Run by Dianne Volek, Kindle Books (www.kindlebooks.co.za) offers a selection of eBooks for download in Rands.
Dianne is also looking for good quality eBooks, novels, or educational books, so any South African writers interested in self-publishing should get in touch with her on firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Kindle Books website.
My only gripe with Kindle Books SA is that they don't appear to stock any books by The Wild Rose Press, so if you want to download books by our talented ROSA members April Vine, Rae Summers, and Gina Rossi (release date TBC) you still have to buy in US dollars!
Thanks to YA author Lynette Ferreira for passing on this information.
